Evelyn Mae Boswell

The remains of 15-month-old Evelyn Mae Boswell, of Blountville, Tennessee, were discovered on March 6 on family property. The investigation continues, but so far no one has been charged in her death.

BLOUNTVILLE, Tenn. — The death of 15-month-old Evelyn Boswell, the Blountville toddler at the center of a Tennessee Amber Alert, remains under investigation.

The child’s body was found March 6 on property belonging to relatives of the child’s mother, 18-year-old Megan Boswell, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.

There have been no updates to the case since the remains were positively identified, the TBI said. 

“I do know that the investigation is still ongoing,” said Capt. Andy Seabolt of the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office. The TBI and Sullivan County District Attorney General Barry Staubus also confirmed the investigation is continuing.

The Sheriff’s Office was first alerted by the Department of Children’s Services that Evelyn was missing on Feb. 18. She hadn’t been seen by certain family members since December.

The child’s mother, who has been charged with false reporting after authorities said she gave inaccurate information during the investigation, remains at the Sullivan County jail. She has a hearing in Sullivan County Criminal Court on May 8 and is represented by attorney C. Brad Sproles.

Evelyn’s grandmother, Angela Boswell, 42, and the grandmother’s boyfriend, William McCloud, 33, have been charged with theft of a vehicle, which stems from the investigation. Their next hearing in General Sessions Court is scheduled for June 9.

No charges have been filed in relation to the child’s death.
