How the alleged killer of a mother ended up in Louisville

Dejaune Anderson was accused of child endangerment and prostitution long before her son’s body was found in southern Indiana.

Louisville, Kentucky – Dijon Anderson is currently wanted by police for the murder of her son Cairo Jordan.

The trail begins in Coleton County, South Carolina.

Court records show that Dejaune Anderson was driving 32 miles above the speed limit in early March. When a policeman tried to pull her off, she continued driving.

They drove 30 miles before Anderson ran out of gas. Until then, she wouldn’t open her door or roll the window, according to state police.

The cop broke the rear window and brought Anderson to the local jail.

Indiana State Police (ISP) says she has been charged with speeding, failure to stop and child endangerment. However, a Coleton County Court clerk or attorney’s office can confirm a child endangerment charge.

Even if it was officially introduced, it wouldn’t affect Anderson’s guard for Jordan. South Carolina law states that a specific child endangerment charge “shall not be used as the sole evidence for taking a child into protective custody.”

While Anderson was in prison, Dawn Coleman waited with Jordan at a nearby hotel. Anderson got out of prison the next day and they left town.

Only 19 days later, Anderson was arrested again. This time she was in Louisville, at the Oxmoor Center, where a video clip of her punches a security guard in the face.

At Anderson’s preliminary hearing on April 11, Judge Lisa Langford told her she was released on a pledge.

“Keep in touch with your attorney,” Langford told Anderson. “Information has been written down for you. May 16, you’re at 301. This starts at 9 a.m. This is the norm and the officer will be called. I’ll circle more around it. We’ll see you on May 16 and stay safe.”

When May 16 came, Anderson was nowhere to be seen.

Instead, on April 14, around 5 p.m., the police sent her phone to the area where Jordan was left for dead.

Anderson and Coleman were captured by Riverlink as they returned to Louisville on April 16.

Then, police say Anderson’s last known location was Echo Park in Los Angeles, California. They haven’t been able to find her since.

Why was Anderson in Louisville in the first place?

It was difficult to answer this question.

When asked for a WHAS11 ISP, Sgt. “When you do your due diligence in your background investigation, you are likely to come to some nuanced conclusions about why they are in this area,” said Carrie Holz.

WHAS11 examined Anderson’s criminal history separately and found several charges of prostitution about 10 years ago in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While WHAS11 cannot be certain that Anderson came to Louisville for sex work, LMPD is known to see a rise in prostitution arrests around the Derby each year.

Additionally, the ISP emphasized the timing of the Kentucky Derby when asked why Anderson was in our area.

This is the latest evidence in a nationwide search for Cairo’s mother, Jordan – and the accused murderer.
