When the media began publishing the talking-points of the case... it only filled the public with questions and picked up a massive amount of interest very, very quickly.

 The biggest issue and question was (at that time): the child was last reported seen by any member of the Boswell family on Dec 26, 2019. Why did it take 2 months to report the child missing? 


On Feb 20, 2020 - A 2007 gray BMW was reported stolen by Mellissa Wood (Hunter’s mother).

Also on Feb 21 - Later in the day Megan contacted a local media outlet (News 5) and granted them a 1 on 1 interview.

Also on Feb 21, 2020 - Tommy Boswell speaks with the media and confirms that he's the one who reported Evelyn missing.

There's was also an issue regarding her current address, which is different than what the court was provided. A new hearing is set for 5/8/2020.

Part 4

On March 6, 2020 - Police believe they found the remains of Eveyn Boswell. Evelyn's remains were found in a shed on the property of Tommy Boswell (the grandfather of Evelyn who reported her missing), after recieving and unidentified tip.

On March 9, 2020 - Megan Boswell is called into court for a bond hearing and the judge raises her bond from $25,000 to $150,000. As we wait for the results of Evelyn's autopsy the bond amount will assure she stays detained. "Substantial risk of harm to the community" was given for the increase along with being a flight-risk.

It all took place in the sleepy, little southern town of Blountville, Tennessee, in Sullivan County, TN..., right on the edge of Kentucky, in Northeast TN.

It's the kind of town you could drive through and never even know you had been there, while in the shadows and only a few feet away from you..... something horrible was happening.

From the moment the Amber Alert was launched (February 19, 2020), until now..., the public has been heavily active in the case. Most are truly baffled and are looking for answers. Some have done more damage than good and have managed to impede progress with conspiracy theories, lies, spin, blame and confusion.

Facts in the case came in slow from the start and the small amount that reached the public only fueled more questions and confusion.

Originally it was stated there were no confirmed sightings of Evelyn since December 26, 2019. That was pushed back to December 10th and 11th when Evelyn was being baby-sat. The identity of this babysit has been withheld from the media and the public.

Tommy Boswell (The grandfather of Evelyn and Megan's father / Angel's ex-husband) reported Evelyn missing on February 18th, 2020 and in and of itself leads to dozens of new questions.

Tommy stated he had last seen Evelyn on Thanksgiving, when everyone had dinner together, but what about Christmas? No one realized Evelyn was absent during the biggest holiday of the year? No one bought presents for her? No one asked where she was?

Tommy stated that he called Angela (his ex wife) before reporting Evelyn missing and informed her what he was about to do. According to him, she said, "If you do that you'll be sorry." (This issue has been a bright red flag for everyone paying attention).

If Evelyn was truly missing, why would Tommy report her missing? If Evelyn was truly missing why didn't Angela report her missing?

Where are the uncles and aunts and in-laws? Where are the friends of the family? And most of all.... why was no one concerned about this innocent child?

The questions go on and on and on... and with the blanks there comes more theories, and with those theories comes more questions, with no confirmed answers at all.

When Evelyn was first reported missing no one was sure where Angela was and her online persona was confused because she was using the last name of her current boyfriend (Hunter Wood).

Child Protective Agency (CPS) tracked her down to a house owned by Hunter's father. When CPS didn't get their questions answered, they realized they had the criteria for an Amber Alert and submitted the case. This was the very same day Evelyn was reported missing (Feb 18, 2020) and the Amber Alert was active early the following morning (Feb 19, 2020).

A lot of public focus was put on Angel's boyfriend (Hunter) and when the media went to his place of business and interviewed him it created a storm of blame and premature finger-pointing. Some people became convinced that Megan did something horrible to Evelyn in persuit of a new life with Hunter and Hunter-himself was involved in it. (They were definent about their blame, but there's abosultely no evidence implicating Hunter's involvement in any of this).

Hunter said in his media interview that Megan and him were "on and off," that it wasn't a swerious relationship and that he had never even seen Evelyn.... only shown pictures and told he was with his biological father, who was home for military leave duting the holidays.

In progress....
