Woman detained in connection with murder in Cairo, Jordan

Woman detained in connection with murder in Cairo, Jordan

Authorities say one of the two women charged in the murder of the Indiana kid whose body was discovered in a suitcase last spring has confessed to her part in the brutal death.

WLKY reported on Monday that Dawn Coleman, 40, of Louisiana, was arraigned on counts of assisting murder, abuse of a dependent resulting in death, and obstruction of justice. The judge entered not guilty pleas in her behalf.

Coleman was detained in San Francisco on October 19, just prior to April’s identification of the remains of 5-year-old Cairo Jordan, which were discovered in a suitcase in Washington County’s woods. Initial autopsy results indicated that he died from a “electrolyte imbalance,” presumably caused by the stomach illness.

Dejuane Anderson, mother of Jordan, is also wanted in connection with his killing and remains at large. Prior to her son’s death, she posted on Facebook that he was demonic and required exorcism.

Carey Huls, a sergeant with the Indiana State Police, told WLKY that Coleman’s arrest is significant because it allows the legal system to go ahead. Currently, she is being detained without bond.

The police have not disclosed Coleman’s connection to Anderson or Jordan.

Coleman, according to an affidavit of probable cause, admitted to detectives that she witnessed Anderson pinning Jordan down with his face in a mattress. Coleman allegedly stated that she assisted Anderson in placing the child’s body in the suitcase and dumping it in the woods.

The paper further asserts that both women’s fingerprints were discovered on garbage bags inside the unique “Las Vegas” luggage, which was also identified in photographs on Coleman’s Facebook profile.

Sgt. Huls confirmed to WLKY that authorities were conducting a nationwide search for Anderson, who was last seen in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

“The inquiry is ongoing,” he stated. We are hopeful and certain that she will be located and brought to justice since a great deal of work is being done behind the scenes that the public is unaware of.
