Chrystul Kizer Sex Trafficking Murder
Kizer, now 19, told The Washington Post she killed the pedophile after he said she “owed him” when she refused to have sex with him.
When Chrystul was 16, she met a 33-year-old white man named Randy Volar. Volar sexually abused Chrystul multiple times.
Volar remained free for three months despite abusing about a dozen underage black girls. He remained free until Chrystul, then 17, went to his house one night in June and reportedly shot him in the head, twice. She lit his body on fire, police confirmed.
Police and prosecutors knew Randy Volar, a 34-year-old white man, was abusing underage black girls.
They arrested him — and released him on the same day.

A few days later, she confessed. District Attorney Michael Graveley, whose office knew about the evidence against Volar but waited to prosecute him, charged Chrystul with arson and first-degree intentional homicide, an offense that carries a mandatory life sentence in Wisconsin.
Randy Volar on Child Sex Trafficking Allegations
Investigators found “hundreds” of child pornography videos of girls who appear to be as young as 12. The pornography stash included more than 20 “home videos” of Volar with underage girls, including Kizer.
His bank had suspected human trafficking because he had made almost $1.5 million in transfers between November 2017 and May 2018. Investigators also found he had $800k in assets.

She sat between the public defenders assigned to her when she couldn’t afford her own lawyer. Beside them was the district attorney, the lead prosecutor for Kenosha County, a lakefront community of about 169k people between Milwaukee and Chicago.
Graveley says he believes Chrystul’s crime was premeditated. The evidence, he argues, shows she planned to murder Volar so she could steal his BMW.
Chrystul maintains she was defending herself. Speaking publicly from jail for the first time, she said that when she told Volar she didn’t want to have sex that night, he pinned her to the floor.
“I didn’t intentionally try to do this”, she said.
Kizer is being held on $1 million bail, court records show, facing multiple felony charges including arson and first-degree intentional homicide, which carries a mandatory life sentence in Wisconsin.
Despite prosecutors’ certainty that her crime was premeditated, her lawyer argues she still has a complete defense to the charges.
