The mother of a 5-year-old boy whose lifeless body was found inside a suitcase in southern Indiana two years ago has been arrested.

On Friday, Indiana State Police announced the arrest of Dejaune Anderson as part of their investigation into the murder. Anderson was arrested after US Marshalls found her in the suburb of Arcadia, California. She was arrested on a murder warrant out of Washington County, Indiana that was originally issued in October 2022.

Her other charges include neglect of a dependent resulting in death (level 1 felony) and obstruction of justice (level 6 felony).

Anderson had been on the run for nearly two years, evading law enforcement by traveling to Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.

Authorities were alerted to Anderson’s possible whereabouts after ISP detectives received a news tip from a concerned citizen, ISP said. This led to U.S. Marshalls finding Anderson on the West Coast as she was attempting to board a public transit train.

ISP said detectives with its Sellersburg post are currently traveling to California as part of the investigation.

Anderson’s arrest brings to a close a troubling investigation that began in April 2022 when a suitcase containing Cairo’s body was found by a mushroom hunter in a heavily wooded portion of Washington County.

However, Anderson did not act alone when transporting the suitcase containing Cairo’s body to Washington County before fleeing.

Police announced the arrest of 40-year-old Dawn Elaine Coleman in San Francisco in connection to the murder investigation on Oct. 19, 2022. An arrest warrant had been issued for Coleman that also included a murder charge, neglect of a dependent and obstruction of justice.

Coleman was later sentenced to 30 years in prison with five years suspended to probation

Court documents revealed that Coleman reportedly admitted to investigators that she witnessed Anderson lying on top of Cairo, who was face down on the bed and still. Coleman allegedly told police that the murder “was already done” when she entered the room. She then said she helped Anderson put Cairo into a trash bag and fit him into the suitcase.

A forensic analysis of fingerprints found on June 29, 2022, of two trash bags found alongside the suitcase matched Coleman, who resided in Louisiana. The other match was for Anderson.

According to previous reports, Anderson believed that her son had “demons” inside him as outlined by several social media posts uploaded by Anderson between December 2021 and April 2022.

n the posts, Anderson wrote that she was looking to use “protection spells”, “reversal spells”, and other forms of hexes and curses. According to one post, Anderson said she needed to find a way to remove “a very powerful demonic force from within my son.”

An autopsy later revealed that Jordan had died as a result of an “electrolyte imbalance” and “viral gastroenteritis.” Investigators also confirmed that Cairo had been dead for around a week before his body was found by the mushroom hunter.
