For six months, no one claimed the body of the 5-year-old boy, whom a walker who had gone to pick mushrooms had discovered in a suitcase stamped Las Vegas. Cairo Jordan, who died of dehydration, was probably left behind by his mother, who is still wanted by the police. A 40-year-old woman was extradited and imprisoned in this case.
Two arrest warrants for murder against the child’s mother and her companion
According to the Police, the little boy died “due to an electrolyte disorder”, following a viral gastroenteritis, causing vomiting and diarrhea and having led to his dehydration. Two arrest warrants are still pending against the child’s mother and her companion. A woman was arrested on Sunday November 20 and imprisoned pending arraignment on Monday. The 40-year-old was extradited from San Francisco, and faces charges of negligence of a dependent causing death and obstruction of justice.
She was found thanks to the fingerprints found on the garbage bags where the little boy lay. Meanwhile, a camera caught footage of the child’s mother’s car driving south on the Jeffersonville Bridge on April 16, 2022, the same day the toddler’s body was found. She is still being actively sought and an arrest warrant for murder has been issued against her.
