Anderson: I killed Xiana--Molester says he murdered other girls

By Rowena Lugtu-Shaddox

FAIRFIELD - On the day a jury convicted Curtis Dean Anderson of kidnapping and
repeatedly sexually abusing an 8-year-old Vallejo girl, he admitted he kidnapped and
killed 7-year-old Xiana Fairchild and 10 other girls over a 30-year span.

"I'm the only one who knows all of what happened to Xiana," Anderson said during a
90-minute interview in the jail Wednesday. "This is gonna go down like the Zodiac."

Xiana vanished the morning of Dec. 9, 1999, after she left her Georgia Street apartment
headed for the bus stop. Anderson admitted in January that he kidnapped Xiana but
wouldn't answer whether he killed her.

Anderson has said he cared for Xiana for two months in his Santa Clara County
apartment until he was evicted. He then lived out of his car.

It was easy to move around with Xiana because she could pass as the daughter of his
girlfriend at the time. The pair had similar features.

"If I still had my job and had my place, she'd pretty much be alive," he said Wednesday.

Her skull was found January on a rural road in the Santa Cruz mountains.

Investigators haven't found her body.

That's because the skull and body weren't disposed of together, Anderson said.

Police only know that Xiana disappeared in December 1999, and that a passerby
discovered her skull in January 2000, Anderson said. He holds the key on everything
else in between - a key he plans to use as leverage with law enforcement, he said.

Vallejo police Lt. JoAnn West wouldn't comment on Anderson's latest statements
Wednesday, or if investigators are any closer to arresting Anderson or anyone else for
Xiana's death.

"A lot depends on evidence. It's not necessary to have the body. It's not essential," she
said. "It just depends on the information."

District Attorney Dave Paulson echoed West's sentiments.

"We don't have to have a body but we need credible information to link him to Xiana,"
Paulson said.

Vallejo police haven't named a suspect in Xiana's case, but also haven't discounted
Xiana's mother or her mother's boyfriend, Antoinette Robinson and Robert Turnbough,
who gave investigators conflicting statements shortly after the disappearance.

"They didn't do nothing," Anderson said. "The only crime they did was not have enough
brain cells."

Santa Clara County investigators hope to talk with Anderson soon, Lt. Mike Flood said
Wednesday night.

"We want to make an arrest," Flood said. "Obviously, he is a suspect by his own

Meanwhile, Anderson harbors no hard feelings toward the 8-year-old Vallejo girl who
escaped him and led to his arrest. A jury found him guilty Wednesday of kidnapping and
10 counts of sexual assault.

"I was on a good roll for

30 years, enjoying my sexual preferences," he said. "It was a better way of working for
30 years. This is the first time I've been in a courtroom (for such a crime)."

The 8-year-old girl had "attitude and spirit" to break his reign of 30 years.

"I did what I liked. Everyone else says it's perverted sex. It's what felt good at the time.

"If there's an opportunity to get away to save your life, (the 8-year-old girl) proved smart
enough to save her life," he added. "I have no bad feelings toward her."

He denies ever threatening to kill her, despite the girl testifying that he did.

"Why would I have to threaten something that was more than likely gonna be the end
result anyway," Anderson said.

He intended to take the girl with him to Nevada. But when his money ran out, he no
longer could care for her, he said.

Many of the girls he's abducted and raped over the years ended up safely going back
home, provided that the girls convinced him that what he did to them was "no big deal,"
he said. Anderson provided few specifics on his past crimes.

Although it's unlikely, if Anderson gets out of jail on appeal or parole, he doesn't plan to
change his ways.

"I'd run amuck," he said. "The scoreboard would just run up."

Anderson is under suicide watch at the Solano County jail, he said.

"I ain't checking out," he said, adding that he wasn't looking forward to prison.

"I don't want to die a violent death but the probability is high."

I moved from Concord,CA July '99 to Salem,OR,BUT I still take the Contra Costa Times through the mail.
I've followed these related cases over the past year or so. This Anderson is just one big BLOWHARD CHILD MOLESTER AND CHILD KILLER who before he bites the dust will probably need 2 or 3 as__oles.
He wouldn't have the guts to confront an adult.

Too bad John Holmes died in 1988. He had AIDS. Perfect for scum like Anderson.
