Jordan Sorensen, 37, faced serious allegations in Jefferson County Superior Court last month concerning the tragic death of his infant son.
Judge Brandon Mack presided over the case and determined that there was probable cause to detain Sorensen for investigation on charges related to unlawful disposal of human remains and removal/concealment of a dead body.
Pending further investigation into Sorensen’s paternity and legal custody of the infant, he may face a potential charge of second-degree kidnapping and domestic violence.
Sorensen, who resides in Port Townsend, was held on $205,000 bail which also includes a separate unrelated charge. The deceased newborn infant is referred to as “OS” in court documents.
The investigation gained momentum when both the child’s mother, Kiersten Anderson, and the infant tested positive for fentanyl shortly after his birth on December 26th, 2023.
“Shortly after his birth, DCYF received a report on December 26, 2023, that the mother (Kiersten Anderson) and the baby tested positive for fentanyl. The other concern in the report was Anderson was not bonding with the child,” the probable cause statement read, according to Peninsula Daily News.
According to the probable cause statement, Sorensen became the primary caregiver under a safety plan that required him to live with Pamela Andrews, whose relationship with Anderson is currently unclear.
As part of the temporary custody agreement, Sorensen was not allowed unsupervised contact with “OS” until he passed a drug test and agreed to weekly testing. However, the safeguards implemented by DCYF quickly fell apart.
After passing a drug test, Sorensen was granted unsupervised access to his son, a decision that now haunts everyone involved.
Although Sorensen initially passed a drug test on January 8 and seemed capable of being alone with his son, he failed to provide a required sample during a subsequent doctor’s appointment and stopped responding to DCYF communications, according to Daily News.
Pamela Andrews brought forward allegations stating that Sorensen had bragged about manipulating his drug test. On Thursday, she informed DCYF that Sorensen had claimed to have given OS to an unidentified person referred to as “Aunt Mary” in court records. Later that night, Sorensen and Anderson returned home without OS.
After Andrews raised alarming concerns, DCYF tried unsuccessfully to reach the couple and sought help from law enforcement.
They eventually found Sorensen at a transient camp in Kah Tai Park where he resisted arrest and revealed the tragic fate of his son.
During his arrest, an distraught Sorenson indicated that the baby was dead and led officers to find the body hidden in bushes inside his car seat.
Seattle radio host Jason Rantz has openly criticized this incident as evidence of Democrat policies failing in the Pacific Northwest in his commentary for Daily Mail.
The unbelievable, unconscionable truth of this horror is that it was by design.
Washington State’s ‘Keeping Families Together Act,’ in effect since July 2023, says that substance abuse and prenatal drug and alcohol exposure is not a reason to remove a child from a parent’s custody because it ‘does not by itself constitute imminent physical harm.’
State Democrats argued the law was necessary because of – you guessed it – racism.
‘Black and Indigenous children are still disproportionately removed from their families and communities’ compared to white children, the legislation complains.
So, their psychotic remedy? A game of Russian roulette with children’s lives.
