Here’s what you need to know:


1. Porter is Suspected of Murdering Prodan & Burning Her Body

Prodan went missing from Edina, Minnesota on January 5, and Porter was arrested in Jacksonville, Arkansas on theft charges January 10. Records also show a “Fugitive” charge with a “Hold for Edina, Minnesota,” as well as a “Hold for US Marshal’s/FBI” which has a date of January 12 listed.

On January 9, police arrested Porter on kidnapping charges in connection with Prodan’s disappearance, and noted severe burns on the man’s face. The vehicle he was driving was stolen from a business in New Orleans, and authorities found the burned body of a female in the back of a shipping container about 2,000 feet away.

A criminal complaint stated Sprint learned of Prodan’s phone being turned on in Cabot, Arkansas. During a search for Porter, investigators located video of Porter and a man, later identified as Porter’s husband, at a Walmart in Cabot. Several phones had been pawned at a kiosk inside of the store, one of which was the victim’s cell phone.

Authorities later found Porter at his husband’s home. After a search warrant was executed, investigators found “multiple belongings” of the victim, according to the complaint, adding that several book bags and women’s underwear were also found inside of the home.

Investigators are awaiting DNA and dental record results to identify the body suspected to be Prodan.

According to a criminal complaint, on January 6, Porter’s mother told Edina police that her son told her about three weeks ago that he was going to “kidnap the victim, drain her bank accounts, empty her safe deposit box of the guns, and take her someplace where no one could find her again.”

The investigation continues, as DNA and dental record results which would confirm Prodan’s death, are still pending. No state murder charges have been filed.

According to Fox 9, the two began a relationship after meeting on Facebook about three months ago, and Porter moved from his home state of Arkansas to be with Prodan in Edina.

Not long after the couple started living together Porter allegedly became abusive, prompting Prodan to take out a restraining order against him.

About a week before Prodan’s disappearance, “the man was sentenced in Hennepin County District Court for violating a domestic abuse no-contact order,” the Star Tribune reported.

Porter was subsequently sentenced to 90 days, however he had 80 days stayed and received credit for 10 days served after being booked for the arrest.


2. Prodan’s Mother Alleges 2 Police Officers Said Her Daughter Is Dead, & She Pleaded with Her to End the Relationship with Porter

Prodan’s mother, Livia Prodan, told WCCO that she believed it was her daughter’s intention to help Porter, which kept her going back to the man.

“She liked very much to help people, and very beautiful,” Livia told the station, adding that it was her daughter’s dream to get married.

However, the mother’s instinct kicked in and she begged the girl to leave Porter.

“Even if they’re saying, ‘I love you,’ they’re lying,” she told WCCO. “It’s not love from the heart, just from the lips, from the mouth.

“He took the life of my daughter, so young,” Prodan told the news outlet.


3. Another Woman Who Met Porter Online Said She Was Grateful ‘This Wasn’t Her’ & Said the Man Claimed He Was Raped & Abused by a Male ‘Roomate’

Heavy spoke with a woman who said she also met Porter online, and “wondered why he had been so quiet the last few months.”

Kayla Martin expressed being “terrified” after hearing the news about the man that she had an online relationship with. “It’s terrifying,” Martin told Heavy. “That could have been me. It’s like you don’t know who to trust anymore. Someone who is a close friend could be a harmful person. It goes to show the faces people put on everyday.”

While Martin said she had become close friends with Porter and that he had helped her through battles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) symptoms, he also showed signs of mental illness and even “rage.” She described him as a man who loved his mother and took care of her while she was sick, but who also fought demons. Martin told Heavy:

Joe helped me with my PTSD flashbacks and nightmares, video called with me all night…I just can’t believe he met another girl on Facebook and this happened, I’m unsure of how to react, really. He wanted to meet up with me, to hang out as friends but we never met in person. But, as a Facebook friend who called me everyday to make sure I was happy and okay, to make me laugh… I’m surprised to see such a story. He went quiet the past few months so I was wondering what was going on with him.

His mother was very sick. He used to carry her to bed. And back into living room…she had cancer I believe. He took good care of her. He would tell me I’m going to go fix cars for money to help mom with bills and such. He loved his mother.

But he had fits of rage where he wouldn’t talk to me and would get upset over little things. He used to get upset if I didn’t answer him back when I fell asleep some nights. He was an insomniac and at the time I was too. And we bonded over that. He would get upset if I stopped texting him even if it was only for a few minutes. And he would stop talking to me for days if I didn’t pay full attention to him. He used to call himself a robot…like he couldn’t feel or he ‘didn’t’ feel. I thought he was just being cute because he would say things like ‘boop beep’ and stuff afterwards.

It’s so terrible… like I was literally going to go over there and hang out one night and my car broke down. I lived in Missouri and he was only a couple of hours away. That night my car broke down and it could have like really saved my life…or saved me from harm that a car didn’t work. Life….it’s strange.

Martin added that Porter told her he had been a drug addict in the past, and said she couldn’t help but wonder if maybe he was heading down that path again. She added that Porter alleged to being raped by a male roommate.

“He put up with it to survive,” she stated. “Thought the roommate was a friend but ended up being an abusive rapist.”

After learning that Porter was actually married to a man and other details that have surfaced, Martin expressed shock and said she “didn’t know he was married to a man,” adding she “just knew he was in an abusive relationship with the guy he was living with.” “Must’ve been him, the husband that he was referring to,” she stated.


4. An Ex-Girlfriend Accused Him of Beating Her Unconscious & Killing Her Dog

This is not Porter’s first run-in with the law. Court record show that he has been convicted of charges which include burglary, property damage and second-degree battery in Arkansas.

In addition, WCCO reported that ” a girlfriend wrote that Porter ‘beat her unconscious…and killed her dog violently.'”


5. Several Law Enforcement Agencies Are Involved in the Case

Several law enforcement agencies are involved in the investigation of Prodan’s disappearance, including what involvement Porter may have had.

Young CHRISTIAN'S mother

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law

CHRIST HAS REDEEMED us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us.
What was that curse?
It is recorded in Deuteronomy, chapter 28, where we are told that the following
diseases came upon the people because of disobedience to God’s law: pestilence,
consumption (or tuberculosis), fever, inflammation, extreme burning, botch, emerods, scab, itch, blindness, smiting in the knee and in the leg, and failing of the eyes.
If your case has not been definitely stated in this list, then listen to verses 60-61 of
this chapter: all the diseases of Egypt, and also every sickness and every disease which is not written in the book of this law.
These words include you and your case, Redeemed from Curses.
Paul says that Christ redeemed us from this curse of the law, because he was made a curse for us. The curse of the law includes all diseases, every sickness, and every plague known throughout the history of the world.

In order for Christ to redeem us from this terrible curse of the law, He was made a
curse for us; that is, He bore for us the punishment prescribed by the law. That is why He had to take our infirmities, and bear our sicknesses.
Adam and Eve sold us into slavery to the devil and put us in bondage to his power,
under his jurisdiction. But Christ has redeemed us. He has bought us back.
He has purchased us with the price of His own body and blood, and freed us. You are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Abundant Life
What a thrill to know that God so loved us that He paid a great price for our
redemption. He gave His Son as our substitute, who assumed our guilt, bore our
judgment and endured our condemnation, in order to absolve us of all debt and obligation to Satan’s regime, so that we could be restored to God as though no sin had ever been committed. He legally redeemed us. He proved how much He values us and wants to be able to share His best with us – His abundant life.
God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son.
That was the kind of love we cannot understand God’s love.
Salvation is your emancipation from everything outside God’s will for humankind.
Now you can act accordingly. You may speak the language of a winner.
Confess your freedom, instead of your bondage. Confess: With his stripes, I am healed, instead of your sickness. Confess your redemption from all disease. Confess that your redemption is complete – from sin and sickness.
Confess that Satan’s dominion over you ended at Calvary, because it was there that
God freed you. God’s word states all of this, so confess it.
Slaves Set Free
When the slaves in the United States were emancipated, they were still living in slaves’ quarters. They still looked like slaves. They still felt like slaves. But when they heard the Emancipation Proclamation read, they had a legal right to say, “I am free,” and to act on that liberty.
Believe in your proclamation of freedom: Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which
Christ has made us free

You are free. Confess that. Tell the devil that you have found the truth. He has
known it all the time, but has lied to you and blinded your eyes to it. He has kept you
from knowing your legal rights in Christ, your redeemer. The god of this world (Satan)
has blinded the minds of them which believe not.
Tell Satan you have found the truth – the truth that sets you free from him. Let him
know, by your confession of God’s word, that you are free from his dominion and that you know it.
The statement, He (Jesus) has borne our griefs (sicknesses), and carried our sorrows (diseases), is God’s check for your perfect healing. Endorse that check with your confession, and perfect health will be manifested in your body.
An End to Chronic Ailments
The diseases of your body were laid on Jesus. You need never bear them, because He has borne them for you. All you need to do is believe this and begin to confess it.
Refuse to allow sickness to stay in your body, because you were healed with His (Jesus’) stripes.
If Christians would believe this, it would be the end of so-called chronic ailments in
their bodies. Always remember: Satan is a deceiver, a liar.
Sickness, disease, sin, and infirmities, all were laid on Christ. He bore them. He
carried them away, leaving us free and well. We should rejoice in this liberty of ours.
Redemption has not become a reality to many. It has been only a theory, a doctrine,
or a creed. Satan has taken advantage of this lack of understanding.
We are redeemed from all the power of Satan. That means we are bought back from
the hand of the enemy. We are born again. We are the new creation. We are freed
from the kingdom of darkness. We are no longer slaves of Satan. Sin and sickness no longer rule over us.
You are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit,
which are God’s.
No Trespassing
How can you glorify God in your body when it is weakened by disease? It is just as
impossible to glorify God properly in your body when it is full of sickness as it is to glorify God in your spirit when it is full of sin.

Tell the devil, “Satan, you are a liar. You know I am redeemed, because I have
accepted Jesus as my redeemer. I am no longer dwelling on your territory, and you have no legal right to trespass on my property. It is no longer yours, neither is it under your jurisdiction. I have been redeemed from your authority by Jesus Christ.”
Say to your enemy, “This sickness you have put on me was cursed on the cross of
Calvary for me, and you know that I do not have to bear it. I command you, in Jesus
Christ’s name, to leave my body. I am free from your curse, for it is written: With his
stripes, I am healed, so I am healed. God said so. Satan, you are a liar; your pains are lies, your symptoms are lies, and your words are lies. You are the father of lies, Jesus said you are.” Then, thank the Lord for your deliverance.
Satan knows all of that. It is only when he knows that you have discovered it that he
must respect your words. So few realize that they are free from the dominion of Satan. He knows it, but until you discover it, he will continue his assault on your life. Many have died prematurely because they have not known their rights in Christ.
Crucified, Buried, and Raised With Christ
When Jesus was crucified, we were crucified with Him. I am crucified with Christ.
When Jesus was buried, we were buried with him.
When Jesus arose from the grave as conqueror, we arose with Him. He has quickened us together with Christ; and has raised us up together in Christ.
When Jesus went back to the throne and sat on the right hand of God, (He) made us
sit together (with Him) in heavenly places.
We are his (God’s) workmanship, created in Christ Jesus. Through Jesus Christ, God
made us what we are – a new creation.
If any one be in Christ, that person is a new creature; old things are passed away;
behold, all things are become new.
We are now a new creature, made in the likeness of God, through the power of Jesus
Christ. God gives us His nature, His love, His faith, His life, His Spirit, His power. We
are re-created.
All that Jesus did was for us. Everything He conquered was for us. He had no need
to conquer Satan for Himself.
He had no sins of His own to carry away, because He had no sin until He took our sins
He did this for us.
He had no need to put away sickness for Himself, because He had no sickness until He
was made sick for us. He did this for us. He conquered for us; and now that we are
recreated in Christ Jesus and are made partakers with Him, we become conquerors
through Him.
In all these things, Paul says, we are more than conquerors, through him that loved us.
All Was for Us
All that Jesus did was for us, and we are now partakers of His victory.
We were captives, but Christ has freed us from captivity.
We were cursed by sin and sickness; but Christ, our redeemer, has freed us from that
curse and loosed us from its dominion.
We were weak, but the Lord has become our strength, so now we are strong.
We were bound and imprisoned, but Christ has freed us from slavery.
We were sick, but Christ has home our sicknesses and carried them away, so now, with his stripes we are healed.
Remember, you were slaves of Satan. You were bound by sin and sin’s penalty,
sickness. You were subject to Satan’s authority. But now you are free. You now have
Christ’s emancipation proclamation – the Bible – and it is YOURS.
Do not be a slave any longer. Do like the slaves in the United Sates did when they
heard their Emancipation Proclamation read: Claim your liberty; act on your deliverance.
You are free. Shout your freedom. Confess your freedom. Believe in your freedom.
Redemption is a fact. Act on your liberty. Your bondage is past. Your prison is open.
Your freedom is granted.
The Spirit of the Lord God is on me; because the Lord has anointed me to preach good tidings to the meek; he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captive, and the opening of the prison to them that are bound.20 Moffatt’s Translation reads: to tell prisoners they are free, to tell captives they are released.
