    CA-Xiana Fairchild - suspect arrested

    In a one-line release Tuesday, Santa Clara County officials announced they had made an arrest in the murder of Xiana Fairchild -- the little Vallejo girl who disappeared in December 1999 and whose skull was found in rural Santa Clara County in January 2001.

    No other details were immediately released, but one law enforcement source has told KTVU that the suspect arrested was Curtis Dean Anderson. He is currently serving a life sentence for the abduction and assault of another Vallejo youngster.

    Factually he was given 251 years, the maximum he could recieve by the judge, Allan P. Carter who tried his case (July 2001) in the abduction of Midsi Sanchez (in 2000). It has always been comon knowledge that he, an admitted pedophile was the abductor and murderer of Xiana Fairchild as well.
    He's been in prison for almost 3 years now, they have had this information for over 3 years and are just now getting around to charging him for the abduction, molestation and murder of Xiana?

    From an August 2001 article: "Anderson appeared in court over the following year, pleading innocent to all the charges. But in numerous tantalizing interviews with the media he gave confusing statements about the case, often implicating himself in the abduction of other young girls, including Xiana Fairchild."

    He had even been to Xiana's mother's apartment and spent the night there on at least one ocassion according to old reports.

    The thing that sickens me the most is that this guy confessed to the abduction and murder of Xiana in 2001 when he was arrested. He confessed and they took an additional 3 years to waste taxpayers money to "investigate" his claims? Some of Xiana's personal posessions were even found in his car!
    Anderson told various news organizations that he kidnapped and killed Xiana. Kahalekulu, the girl's great-aunt, said Anderson had told her the same thing in November 2000 and had revealed details only her family and police knew.

    If only her family and the police would have known this info he related that should have been enough to convict. Too bad they didn't let Juan succeed when he jumped him in the courtroom back in 2001 during the trial.

    Xiana Fairchild's great-aunt Stephanie Kahalekulu spoke out to reporters today saying she wants Curtis Dean Anderson get much more than just the death penalty for killing the 7-year-old in late 1999 or early 2000.

    "I'd like to see him get the death penalty," she said.

    "Even better, and I know this never happens in the legal system, I'd like to see him tortured, in fear and in pain on a daily basis the way (Fairchild) was."

    Convicted child molester Curtis Dean Anderson will be charged today as the man who abducted and killed 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild of Vallejo, according to the Solano County district attorney Tuesday.

    District Attorney David Paulson and several of Xiana's family members said Anderson, 43, now serving a 251-year prison sentence in another Vallejo abduction case, is expected to be named at a news conference today in San Jose.,00.html

    He bragged about kidnapping and killing 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild, but it took authorities more than three years to get enough evidence to arrest Curtis Dean Anderson for the murder.

    In the end, Curtis Dean Anderson got what he wanted.
    The 43-year-old convicted sexual deviant, who had bragged for years that he was key in the disappearance of Xiana Fairchild, will be arraigned today in Santa Clara Superior Court in the 1999 kidnapping and murder of the 7-year-old, who disappeared as she walked to a school bus stop in downtown Vallejo

    Convicted child molester Curtis Dean Anderson has told investigators he kept 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild captive for several weeks after kidnapping her from Vallejo in 1999 and videotaped himself molesting her, authorities say.

    Convicted child molester and murder suspect Curtis Dean Anderson regrets nothing he's done and feels no pity for the people he's hurt.

    On the other hand, he doesn't blame his victim's family for wanting revenge.

    ``If my sister came home with a chunk out of her leg'' from a dog bite, he said in a jailhouse interview Saturday, ``I'd shoot the dog.''

    Welcome to the world according to Curtis Dean Anderson.

    It's a world, however twisted, with its own code of conduct -- one that is singularly his. In that world, you must protect those you love but may still prey on others.

    Anderson, 43, who is serving a 251-year-sentence for kidnapping and sexually assaulting an 8-year-old Vallejo girl in 2000, was charged earlier this month in the death of Xiana Fairchild, 7, another Vallejo girl, who disappeared in December 1999. He is being held in Santa Clara County jail.

    He has taunted reporters and tortured Xiana's family for years with tales of how he abducted the girl.

    Now that authorities believe him, he's not as talkative.

    ``I can't get into that,'' a gaunt and toothless Anderson said when asked if he killed Xiana.

    He will say that he was acquainted with the little girl, admitting that he gave her a ride to school once before her disappearance. And he said he was speaking the truth when he told Xiana's great-aunt, Stephanie Kahalekulu, that he knew where the girl was.

    Anderson will even concede that whatever interaction he had with Xiana was probably illegal and that he has ``some knowledge'' about how part of the child's skull ended up in the Los Gatos hills.

    But he said he can't say any more because of the pending case against him. And he doesn't care about any suffering his words or deeds might cause.

    ``It's not my place to worry and care about everybody else,'' he said.
