“This whole case is about justice for Cairo. That’s all this case has ever been about,” Huls said, according to New York Post. “Justice for everybody means bringing those responsible for this death before the public to stand trial,” he said. Jordan would have turned 6 on Monday, October 24. Anderson also faces charges of neglect of a dependent resulting in death and obstruction of justice and is still at large as of now. Dawn Elaine Coleman, 40, another suspect in the murder, was arrested by the police on October 19, 2022. She is also charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in death and obstruction of justice.

The 40-year-old from Louisiana was taken into custody in San Francisco, California, and will be transferred to Indiana in the near future. Jordan and Coleman apparently were not related and Huls did not reveal what their relationship was. “There were no witnesses, there were no family members, there were no acquaintances that came forward with any type of information,” Huls said. “We only had what we had there at the scene.” He also noted that Anderson has traveled to multiple US cities, including Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco.

On April 16, 2022, a mushroom hunter discovered Jordan's body in a hard suitcase with a distinctive Las Vegas design on it. According to state police, the cause of his death is an electrolyte imbalance, most likely due to gastroenteritis, or vomiting and diarrhea that resulted in dehydration. Huls said that the boy was never reported missing and was dead within a week before he was found.

Both Coleman and Anderson's fingerprints were found on black plastic bags that Jordan’s body was placed inside within the suitcase, according to a probable cause affidavit filed on October 14, seeking the arrest warrant against Coleman. The affidavit also contains posts allegedly from Anderson’s Facebook account made after she was released from jail in Kentucky on April 11 on a shoplifting charge that stated, “Just got out of a jail mission” and “Yes had to do some healing and killing.”

Her earlier Facebook posts are on topics like exorcism and spells, according to the affidavit. One post on February 19 touched on “a very powerful demonic force from within my son,” the affidavit states. Huls stated that he does not have any information if Anderson had any other children or not.
