According to Texarkana, Arkansas Police Public Information Officer Kristi Bennett, Eitel’s wife, who applied using another name and as a single parent, made application for the exchange student and was accepted following their placement protocol.

Both agencies simultaneously learned of Eitel residing in the home with the parent and exchange student just prior to removal of the student.

The placement agency is working with TAPD. TAPD is currently investigating any possible state or federal criminal charges that either Eitel or his wife may have committed.
