A forensic pathologist testified that a blanket and aluminum foil were used to suffocate Tennessee toddler Evelyn Boswell, whose heartbreaking weeks-long disappearance in 2020 ended with the discovery of her remains on family property. The toddler, who was 15 months old, had been missing for several weeks.

The information was disclosed on Friday during a hearing to talk about which pictures can be used as evidence in the trial of Boswell’s mother, Megan, who is accused of killing her daughter and going to great lengths to cover it up.

Who was Evelyn Boswell?

According to the police, Evelyn Mae Boswell was last seen in December, but it wasn’t until February 18 that she was reported missing and an Amber Alert was sent out to look for her.

She was aged 15 months.

She had been missing for more than three months when her body was finally discovered in a shed.

How did she die?

According to Knox News, the cause of Evelyn’s death was not disclosed in a presentation made by the Sullivan County grand jury on Wednesday.

Additionally, no precise death date is given.

“On or about December 2019” is listed as the death date.

When was Megan Boswell arrested and what charges did she get?

Megan Boswell, Evelyn’s mother, is accused of killing the toddler and concealing her body. She is 19 years old.

Megan is charged with the murder of 15-month-old Evelyn.

The information was made public on Wednesday by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

The statement read, “During the course of the investigation, it was determined that Megan Boswell murdered Evelyn and dismembered her body.”

According to TBI, Megan was accused of two counts of felony murder, one count of severe child abuse, one count of neglecting a child, and one count of abuse of a corpse.

The TBI added that she was accused of failing to report a death that occurred in circumstances that were unusual, suspicious, or unnatural as well as twelve counts of making false reports.

The mother was already being detained in Sullivan County Jail for filing a false report in relation to the disappearance of her daughter.

In May, she was charged with 11 counts of making false statements.

On February 25, Boswell was charged with filing a false police report after officers claim that she provided them with conflicting and inaccurate statements and caused a delay in their investigation.
After offering conflicting accounts of the toddler’s disappearance, Evelyn’s grandmother was also detained.

The Tennessee-based Boswell family has a long history of felonies, including kidnapping and attempted murder.
