Indiana State Police announced the arrest of one woman, and a warrant for the mother of a little boy whose body was found in a suitcase in rural Washington County in April.

"It's a bittersweet day," said Sgt. Carey Huls, Indiana State Police.

There were no matches to any missing children reports for police to work off of on the case. There were thousands of tips, but unfortunately, none of them panned out.

An autopsy did not find any signs of physical trauma.

"No crime scene evidence technologies were spared," Huls said about the investigation. 

As a result of physical evidence, ISP detectives were able to identify two suspects and the little boy found dead.

The child was identified as 5-year-old Cairo Jordan from Georgia. He was never reported to authorities as a missing child. He would have turned 6 years old on Oct. 24.

"We want justice for Cairo,” Huls said.

Authorities with the Georgia Bureau of Investigations helped find and contact Cairo's biological father after investigators were able to confirm the child was Cairo.
