BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — A memorial has been set up in Sullivan County where the remains of a child were found along Muddy Creek.
The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said Friday that authorities found what they believe to be the remains of missing 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell. At this point, no one yet charged in the toddler’s death.
The TBI is awaiting word from the medical examiner to confirm the child's identity and determine the cause of death.
The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office has also warned people not to be fooled by fake GoFundMe pages. The agency has not authorized any such fundraising efforts.
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation issued an Amber Alert for the child on Feb. 18. Evelyn hadn't been seen for about a month before family members reported her as missing to police. One day later, the Amber Alert was issued.
Maggie Boswell and the child's grandmother, Angela Boswell, were both arrested in the case. Maggie was accused of giving false reports during the investigation. Angela was arrested and charged with possession of stolen property after being found in a vehicle of interest.
