Who were Cedric Charles Anderson, Karen Elaine Smith? Family, photos, biographies - Mary Cummins

Cedric Anderson, Cedric Charles Anderson, Karen Elaine Smith, San Bernardino Elementary school, shooting, killing, murder, suicide

04/14/2017 They released the 911 audio. Here it is.

04/13/2017: Smith and two adult aides were in the classroom during the shooting. One aide said Cedric was shooting everyone. Cedric pointed his gun at one aide but it just clicked as he was out of bullets. The aides, students fled as Cedric reloaded the gun. That means he intentionally killed the kids. He probably did that because he knew how horrible that would make Smith feel for the last few moments of her life.

A friend of Smith stated that Smith said Anderson was acting very strangely before Smith left him. Sounds like he was having some sort of breakdown. Still, he knew what he was doing when he killed those people.

A man by the name of Lincoln Cooper met Cedric two weeks ago in a gas station. "In their first encounter, Cooper said Anderson told him about his troubled marriage and frustration with his wife's family, who he blamed for their separation.

"He mentioned about killing. He said, 'I wish I could kill them.' Not her, but the family," Cooper said.

The two talked for several minutes before Cooper invited him to his Perris ministry, The Concerned Family. There, Anderson met Cooper's wife.

"He said, 'I never did anything to her. I was trying to tell her not to take the side of her family and then I just touched her on the chest. But I did not do anything. Then she turned around and said I choked her,'" Fortunate Cooper said." Here is that article.

04/12/2017: Cedric Anderson went to Inglewood High School class of 1982. He has a brother Darryl Wayne Anderson who was the class of 1983. A woman filed a civil suit against both of them. There is no other information available about the suit.

He has a classmates profile. "Cedric is from Los Angeles, California. Cedric's schools include Inglewood High School. Cedric later attended Gwinnett Technical College (HVAC Technician). Cedric works(ed) at ABM Engineering Services. Music Cedric likes includes Gospel music, Rev Run, 한주헌의 드럼퍼즐 Drum Puzzle. Books Cedric likes include The Three Battlegrounds, The Final Quest by Rick Joyner, Watchman Nee. Movies Cedric likes include Straight Outta Compton, Committed People Can Change the World, The Atlanta Way: A Documentary on Gentrification. TV shows Cedric likes include ESPN, T.D. Jakes Show, Managing The Malcolms."

Cedric Anderson threatened to kill his previous wife Natalie who is the mother of his three sons. This is from part of the restraining order his previous wife Natalie filed against him. Cedric has a very long history of abuse and threats.

"Cedric called and said he wanted me to pay for the divorce. I told him no, he said we would all die, me the kids and himself," ex-wife Natalie Anderson wrote in a January 1997 petition for a domestic violence restraining order in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Natalie said the terrifying threat was made on Oct. 15, 1996. A couple months later, "Cedric called me and said he would pick the kids up from school and I would not get them back," Natalie said in the handwritten filing."

"Cedric had beat up his aunt and then called me and said, 'No b---h, the police don't have me but I'm going to bust your a-- before this is over," she claimed.

"He refused to leave and ended up jumping on me and choking me. He did this in front of his sister," she said in a follow-up filing. "I telephoned the police. They wanted to arrest the respondent, but I did not want the children to see their father hauled away in handcuffs."

Natalie, 53, said Anderson "talked" her into abandoning her restraining order case, but the verbal abuse continued.

"Since then, the respondent has been threatening to kill me. He has told other ministers and bishops, my mother, his sister and our friends that he is going to kill me," Natalie said in her declaration signed Aug. 21, 1997, a few weeks after their divorce was finalized.

Jennifer Lindsey, 50, won a three-year restraining order in 2013 after she claimed Anderson nearly killed her. She said the maintenance worker and Christian minister pounced on her in the predawn hours of May 17, 2013 while raging over her plans to go to a karaoke venue with a female friend.

"He suddenly pulled the blankets off of me and then grabbed me by my arms. He then put the pillow over my face and held it so I could not breathe," she said in her handwritten filing in Los Angeles.

"I fought as hard as I could, kicking with my feet. He still had one of my wrists and continued to push the pillow down into my face," she said.

Lindsey finally managed to break free but was severely traumatized, she said.

"I thought I would die that night," she wrote.

A week later, Anderson allegedly attacked her while she was ironing clothes for a Memorial Day dinner with him.

"(He) shoved me with his hand to my throat, pushing me onto the bed," she said. "He had a butcher knife in his hand and told me he was sick of me."

Anderson, meanwhile, went on to marry Karen Smith, 53, in January, her mom confirmed.

Shortly after the wedding, Anderson started taunting his new wife with baseless allegations she was "fooling around" and threatened to "throw her out the window," Smith's mom Irma Sykes told The News Monday.

"He was a wolf in sheep's clothing. As soon as they married, he turned on her. The real Cedric came out," Sykes, 80, said.

"She just left him, and he was angry. He tried to butter her up and say all kinds of nice things to her, after he cursed her out. Anyhow, she decided no, she was not going to stay with him. And that's why he killed her."

Here are the underlying documentation of the cases.

There are actually more but the petitioners didn't show up for court. They were probably too frightened of him. Notice one of them is a restraining order to stay away from his sons and his ex-wife.

04/11/2017: Cedric Anderson's family released a statement.

“To the victims and their families, there are no words to express our deepest sympathy for what our son, father, brother, uncle, cousin, friend has done,” read the statement. “Because of this horrible, heinous, disgusting, senseless crime that was committed upon humanity, every life connected will forever be changed. To the families connected, my heart is truly heavy and if I could bring your loved ones back, please know that I would go to the end of the Earth and give my last breath trying.”


Today Cedric Charles Anderson went to San Bernardino North Park Elementary school and shot and killed his wife then himself. He also shot two students. One, an eight year old has died. The other is in critical condition. Who was Cedric Anderson? Everyone, when you meet someone new, do some research. Don't believe everything they say.

Cedric was born March 19, 1964. He has sons named Jared, Jeremy, Jacob Charles Anderson which are from previous wives. They were born in Snellville, Gwinnett, Georgia and Los Angeles, California, USA. His ex-wives are alive. His kids graduated from college, most are married with small children. His eldest kid is 31. He's lived in Grayson, Georgia, California City, CA, Lancaster, CA and Riverside, California. His marriage to Karen was on January 28, 2017 in Los Angeles, California. They had been separated for a few weeks. He appears to be very religious in his Facebook page linked below. His email address is He has a blue collar job.

Karen Elaine Sykes Smith Anderson was born November 17, 1963. Her mother is Irma Lois Alexander. Her father is Richard Sykes. She has a brother named Richard. Her ex-husband is Roderic L Smith. They were married in 1983 in Los Angeles. They had four children and many grandchildren. Their children are Roderic Lamarr, Adam, Jennifer Renee and Joshua Andrew born in the 80's. Here is Karen's obituary.

Police Chief Jarrod Burguan said Cedric Anderson had a criminal history, including arrests for domestic violence, weapons and drug charges. Burguan said he was not able to provide specifics about those cases. He said the criminal history preceded his relationship with Karen Smith. Cedric married Karen January 28, 2017.

Facebook just updated Cedric's page. This isn't going over very well. It says "Remembering Cedric Anderson. We hope people who love Cedric will find comfort in visiting his profile to remember and celebrate his life."

In some of his posts he states he has anger issues and guns. He and his family are super religious. Cedric believes his god is a vengeful god.

There are a lot of cases in LA County criminal. I'll start posting some here.

Those charges were dropped. I see no criminal record in Riverside or San Bernardino Counties.

I see a lot of charges of domestic violence in Grayson, Gwinnett, Georgia. First another divorce. Case 11-A-02324-5 Lisa Marie Anderson (Defendant) 1700 Pinehurst View Drive, Grayson, GA 30017. Uncontested divorce filed March 9, 2011, final 05/06/2011. There was a mutual restraining order. Her original name was Lisa Marie Thomas. They were married in Las Vegas, Nevada August 3, 1997. That would mean she's not the mother to his older children. That means Natalie is the mother of his other children as they married in 1985.

Here is his Facebook page.

Her Facebook page. I have copies if they go down.

All of his family is on Facebook.

They were married January 28, 2017 at Bethesda Temple Church, 4909 Crenshaw Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90043. They both have children, grandchildren through previous marriages. They were living in Karen's home at 19452 Mt Wasatch, Riverside, CA 92508. Karen owned the home as an unmarried woman. It was listed for sale in 2006 for $575,000 but the listing was cancelled. The home is 4 beds, 2 bath, 2,834 sf on a 9,148 sf lot built in 2002. It was previously owned by Karen and her ex-husband Rod.

Cedric was previously married in 1985 to Natalie Cardelia Mccanelley born 1963. They lived in California City, California which is in Kern county. Maybe this is the assault bodily injury charge? She later married Rev Dwayne Boddie. Natalie just received a Masters in Psychology. She lives in Lancaster with her husband Boddie. Cedric's son is also very religious. His wife works at the ministry. Natalie is the mother of some of Cedric's three sons.

Here is video of them getting married.

Here is video of the two of them.

Here he talks about loving his wife whom he just killed.

Cedric Anderson, Cedric Charles Anderson, Karen Elaine Smith, San Bernardino Elementary school, shooting, killing, murder, suicide
Here she is moments before she married the crazy man. Her mother stated Karen left Cedric when she realized he had other intentions. Perhaps he wanted her money? When Karen left him is when he showed his evil side. I wish Karen had warned the entry office at her school about him. So sad.

Pics from their wedding.

Pics from their honeymoon in Sedona, Arizona.

They attended Saddleback Church. Odd because it's non-denominational. Scroll way down his Facebook timeline. He gives himself away as an unhinged gun nut who wants to kill people.

  1. Mary thank you for posting this. I was a neighbor in Georgia that am listed in your article. He was a very disturbed individual and very violent. I always wanted vindication for the false claim he brought me in court for and this article gave me closer. I have never been in jail or court for domestic issues until this man came into our life. I am also a realestate broker and in real estate for over 35 years never having any thing on my record. This charge was on my record and I see it will publicly follow me. Thank you again

  2. Yes I thank you for giving us the details and helps to see some of the red flags that we need to be aware of before we allow anyone near us or our precious family members may god help his soul as I know she is already in heaven along with that little angel he killed.

  3. Cedric Anderson worse that a POS

  4. Here she is moments before she married the crazy man. Her mother stated Karen left Cedric when she realized he had other intentions.
