A boy found dead inside a suitcase in rural southern Indiana last spring has been identified as a 5-year-old from Georgia, and police said Wednesday the child’s mother and another woman. His d*ath is suspected.
The boy has been identified as Cairo Ammar Jordan of Atlanta, Georgia, said Sgt. Carrie Holz of the Indiana State Police, who said the boy would have turned 6 last Monday. Jordan was never reported missing, which slowed her down, she said. The case was investigated for months.
Arrest warrants were issued Oct. 14 for the boy’s mother, Dijon Lodi Anderson, 37, of Atlanta, Georgia, and Dawn Elaine Coleman, 40, of Shreveport, Louisiana, both charged with neglect of a dependent, Hills said. Which resulted in d*ath and obstruction. of justice.
Coleman was arrested in San Francisco on Oct. 19, and Hills said that based on additional investigative work, a second arrest warrant was issued Tuesday for Anderson on a mansl*ughter charge in her son’s d*ath.
Hills said Anderson remains at large, and police are asking for the public’s help in finding him. He said Anderson has traveled to several locations, including Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco, since police began investigating after her son’s body was found last spring.
“Physical evidence led the suspects to Jordan’s d*ath,” Hills said.
“This is all about justice for Cairo. It’s been all about this until now,” Hulse said at a news conference in Sellersburg, Indiana. “Justice for everyone means that those responsible for his d*ath should be brought to justice before the people.”
Jordan’s body was found April 16 inside a hardtop suitcase emblazoned with a Las Vegas design that a mushroom hunter discovered in a heavily wooded area off a dead-end road in southern Indiana’s Washington County, Hills said. what was
An autopsy found the boy died of an electrolyte imbalance possibly caused by gastrointestinal upset, or dehydration from vomiting and diarrhea, state police said in May. Investigators said the boy had died a week before his body was discovered.
He was buried in June in Salem, Indiana, in a cemetery about 35 miles (55 km) north of Louisville, Kentucky, where a police chaplain called the then-unknown child an “unknown angel”.
The Georgia Bureau of Investigation helped Indiana authorities contact Jordan’s father after investigators confirmed the boy’s identity, Hills said.
According to a probable cause affidavit filed for an arrest warrant against Coleman on Oct. 14, investigators found fingerprints from both Coleman and Anderson on black plastic bags that were placed inside the suitcase that contained the boy’s body. .
The affidavit contains posts that Anderson allegedly made on his Facebook account, including posts after he was released from prison on April 11 for shoplifting in Louisville, Kentucky. In the posts, which were made using a false name, Anderson wrote: “Just got out of a prison mission” and “Yes had some treatment and killing,” the affidavit states.
An earlier series of Facebook posts by Anderson allegedly discussed extortion, spells and other supernatural topics, including one posted on Feb. 19 that read “from inside my son,” according to the affidavit. A very powerful demonic force” was mentioned.
Online court documents do not list an attorney who could speak on behalf of Coleman, who is expected to be moved to Indiana in about a month, Hills said.
Online court records in Indiana do not reflect a m*rder charge against Anderson, and it is unclear if he has an attorney who can speak on his behalf.
The Washington County Prosecutor’s Office declined to discuss the status of the m*rder charge against Anderson on Wednesday.
Hills said the prosecutor’s office obtained an arrest warrant from a judge Tuesday for Anderson’s m*rder based on an affidavit that will be released after Anderson is in custody.
