Sheriff Says They Found The Remains of Toddler Evelyn Boswell
Tennessee officials believe that they have found the remains of Evelyn Boswell, who was reported missing a little more than two weeks ago. Evelyn was last seen in December and police initially said last month they were investigating why it took so long to report the toddler missing.
On Friday, Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy said in a televised report that detectives received a tip that led to a property belonging to a "family member of Evelyn's mother."
Police will confirm Evelyn's identity after an autopsy is conducted, Cassidy said. The investigation is still active and in its early stages, officials said. The discovery follows two weeks of efforts from local, state and federal authorities to locate the child, navigating through interviews with a mother who police said changed her story each time she spoke to them.
During the investigation we determined that some of the statements Megan Boswell provided to us were false," the sheriff had said to local TV reporters. "Many of the false statements that Megan made delayed our investigation and also impeded our investigation on trying to find Evelyn."
The sheriff said the mother's story would change "every time" she spoke to police.
