A 37-year-old woman being sought by authorities after the body of her 5-year-old son was found in a suitcase allegedly claimed for months that the minor was possessed. According to FOX5 Vegas, an investigation into the circumstances surrounding Cairo Jordan’s death determined her mother Dejuane Ludie Anderson took to social media on multiple occasions to claim her son required an exorcism because he was possessed by a demon.
The suitcase containing Cairo’s body was found in Washington County on April 16. Another woman Anderson referred to as her sister – Dawn Elaine Coleman – is also accused of being involved in the minor’s killing. She was arrested in California on October 19 and charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in death and obstruction of justice. A murder warrant has also been issued for Anderson.
Per court documents, Anderson took to Facebook on December 5, 2021, to share a post about her son and exorcism. She shared subsequent posts claiming that she used her blood to perform a ritual that was linked to her son. She is also said to have sent more posts during the month of March. In one of them, Anderson claimed her son had been possessed by a demon.
“Stop getting caught up in the vessels of this realm. You guys get caught up with how old the body is, if they adult and kids, etc. Don’t even know it’s a full-grown demon in the child body telling you what to do because you didn’t choose your soul. Better start using your 3rd eye,” a March 15, 2022, post by Anderson reads.
The documents also state that police engaged Anderson on a chase in South Carolina some days before she shared that post. Her son as well as Coleman were passengers in the car. And though Anderson was ultimately arrested and jailed, she was released later.
Anderson allegedly continued sharing social media posts about exorcism and a child possessed by a demon. Authorities were also able to establish Anderson and Coleman were in Pekin, Indiana on April 14. Two days later, an individual hunting for mushrooms around the location the two suspects were said to be, found Cairo’s remains in a suitcase, FOX5 Vegas reported.
Police say no one contacted them to report Cairo missing. Court documents also stated that the suitcase that contained Cairo’s body was spotted in pictures and videos Coleman posted on her social media platforms.
Anderson is currently on the run. Authorities say the Georgia native is a known traveler, and she was last spotted around Echo Park in Los Angeles. Other areas she has recently been spotted at include San Francisco, San Diego, Las Vegas, and Houston, Texas.
“Help us locate her for Cairo so that justice can be served for him,” Sgt. Carey Huls of Indiana State Police said.
