Back in April, the remains of a little boy were found inside a novelty “Welcome to the fabulous Las Vegas” suitcase. For six months, his identity remained a mystery. No one came forward. No one reported him missing.
Now, the little boy finally has a name. Cairo Jordan should have celebrated his sixth birthday on Wednesday.
Instead, his mother is on the run wanted for his murder – with online posts about exorcisms, hexes, and curses, and her “demonic” child offering a chilling glimpse into the terrors the small child may have endured in his final days.
According to Authorities, the prime suspect in the case is his 37-year-old mother Dejuane Ludie Anderson who is currently on the run from authorities in California.
And at a press conference Wednesday, Indiana State Police investigators were finally able to come forward with some answers.
ISP Sgt. Carey Huls said that Cairo lived in Atlanta and was 5 years old at the time of his death. He would have turned 6 on Oct. 24.
“It’s bitter because no matter what progress is made, what happens in a case, we’re still dealing with the tragic death of a precious young child,” Huls said. “Bitter in that way, but the wheels of justice do turn.”
Huls also said over the summer that Cairo had died due to an electrolyte imbalance “most likely caused by gastroenteritis, which in common laymans’ terms would be vomiting and diarrhea. And that resulted in dehydration.”
The boy’s mother, Anderson (pictured above), along with another woman, 40-year-old Dawn Elaine Coleman (pictured bel0w) are wanted for the vile things they did to the boy after posting on social media about how he was a “demon.” Coleman has been apprehended by police while Anderson remains on the run from authorities.
The two women each face charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in death and obstruction of justice, while Ms. Anderson also faces an additional charge of murder.
Meanwhile, Cairo’s father, thirty-three-year-old Vincent Jordan, said that Anderson ran away with the boy back in 2017. He has since posted a tribute to his beloved son on social media. Anderson fled with Cairo following a custody battle, and Jordan has been searching for the pair ever since.
Coleman, of Shreveport, Louisiana, was arrested on 19 October in San Francisco, police said. It is unclear what connection she has to Cairo and his mother but investigators confirmed they are not related.
Anderson, from Atlanta, Georgia, remains on the run. Investigators issued a warrant for her arrest, revealing that she was last seen in Los Angeles.
She is described as a Black woman with short, dark brown hair who is 5’5” tall, weighs 135 pounds, and is known to wear wigs and extensions.
What exactly led a mother to allegedly murder her young son and dump his body in a suitcase in a case that has spanned multiple states remains a mystery.
But a look at Anderson’s disturbing social media posts offers some clues.
On April 12, just four days before his remains were found, she wrote on Facebook that her five-year-old son was actually a 100-year-old demon.
“I have survived the death attacks from my 5-year-old throughout the 5 years he has been alive. I have been able to weaken his powers through our blood. I have his real name and he is 100 years old. Need assistance,” she wrote.
One day before his body was discovered, she made another chilling post that read in part “this is a whole demon in a child body”.
In one post from 8 April, Coleman wrote: “You better check to see if the children that you think are children actually have souls or if they’re not malevolent beings with a soul.”
