1-Yr-Old Suffocated, Buried Alive in Trash Can

15-month-old Tennessee girl who was found dead in a backyard was buried alive by her mom after being suffocated with a blanket and aluminum foil – then shoved upside down in a trash can, authorities said.

Evelyn Boswell — who went missing in December 2019 but was only reported missing two months later — was discovered in a trash can on her grandfather’s property, Crime Online reported.

“It was my belief (the can was) placed there recently,” Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Brian Fraley told a court Friday. 

“I observed a leg (with) a foot attached … on top of the trash. It was consistent with an infant of the described age of the missing victim.”

Her mom, Megan Boswell, faces a slew of charges, including two counts of capital murder, aggravated child abuse and neglect, tampering with evidence, abuse of a corpse and making false reports.

Dr. Darinka Mileusnic-Polchan, the chief medical examiner for Knox and Anderson counties, told the court that the death was a homicide caused by asphyxia in four places, WJHL reported.

The forensic pathologist said Evelyn was still alive when she was placed inside the trash can – wrapped tightly with a blanket and aluminum foil.

“The disposal of this child was remarkable,” Mileusnic-Polchan reportedly testified.

“She was sort of compressed in the can … (in an) accordion-like position. There was a severe overextension of her head and neck … an extreme extension,” she said.

“(The blanket) was not just haphazardly placed (around her body). It was tightly wrapped (to) prevent her from breathing … The blanket left imprints on (Evelyn’s skin),” Mileusnic-Polchan added.

Fraley, the TBI special agent, previously testified that Boswell also had claimed that her daughter died accidentally while co-sleeping with her and her then-boyfriend, according to WJHL.

On Friday, Mileusnic-Polchan said the girl was too old to have died in such a manner.

“This was not an accidental asphyxia. The manner of death was a homicide,” she said, adding that “this was not a child dying in her sleep.”

She added that decomposition and the infestation of maggots prevented investigators from determining if blunt force trauma was a factor in the death, but that the skeleton did not show damage, WJHL reported.

The hearing was held to discuss which images could be used as evidence after the suspect’s attorney, Brad Sproles, argued that some were too graphic and would possibly sway the jury.

District Attorney General Barry Staubus argued that the photos do not show open wounds, blood or facial expressions and are important for the case.

Judge James Goodwin examined each photo and omitted one after saying there was something that “absolutely bothers” him, making him worry about the jurors. He also disallowed several others, WJHL reported.

The child’s mother allegedly lied about the disappearance several times.

“Every time we talk to her, her story changes,” Sullivan County Sheriff Jack Cassidy said previously, according to Crime Online.

On Feb. 18, 2020, when an AMBER Alert was issued, Boswell reportedly told authorities that Evelyn’s dad, Ethan Perry, had the child and she planned to pick her up, the news outlet said.

But investigators determined said that Perry, a military member stationed in Louisiana, did not have the child.

  1. This sick, twisted woman should be stuffed in a garbage can and then buried!
    That would be justice ⚖.

  2. Typical. Blame the man. Blame the husband. That’s what they do. Some liberal judges feel more for these evil ones. Not the poor victims.

  3. tirrie dobos mcdonald

    The Bible says do unto others as they have done to you…. slowly smother her to death make her feel what that baby went through grrrr she will probably get nothing justice system suxs

    • Actually it is…an eye for an eye! The quote you made is actually, do unto others as you would have others do unto you.
      Hopefully justice will be served!

    • The Bible does not say that!!! The Bible says, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”

  4. The devil made her to this, no God to protect her. Lots of couples would do any to have a beautiful girl like her. The judge is a democrat, evil everywhere.

  5. She will face God and spend eternity in hell where she belongs!

  6. I hope that she dies the same way she inflicted on that sweet angel! Carol, you are so right! She’ll burn in hell in the Lake of Fire, for eternity, like ALL THE BABY MURDERERS!

  7. You are absolutely right. The only thing is, she deserves much more abuse before being stuffed in a damn trash can and discarded and buried alive. Give this evil bitch the death sentence immediately, don’t wait several years in jail at the taxpayers expense

  8. Oh! That beautiful little baby! How could any
    human being, especially a mother, kill that little Angel. I do believe she in in Heaven with Jesus. But, the
    so-called mother will regret her actions when she
    has to be among other women in prison. They do
    not take kindly to women who mistreat or kill
    innocent children.

    This is the problem with liberal lefty socialists and our society in general. Protect the criminal give them the justice they withheld from the victim and TO HELL with the VICTIM.

  10. Public hangings for such offences would dramaticallly decrease violent crime.

    • I agree, if the United States would hang two of these monsters on the same day and televise it go all to see the crime rate would drop by 50% within 24 hours.

  11. This is the most horrific child murder case I can ever remember and I can’t stop the tears in my eyes of the cruelty and evil that humans possess.

  12. She was so beautiful! Her little eyes tell another story; you can see she was already going through hardships in her short time on earth!

  13. Well the right to life anti abortion folks will be happy that the mother did not have an abortion

    • What an ignorant comment, you don’t know if this woman even tried to get an abortion. If the mother didn’t want it love this child, she could have given her up for adoption, what could a 15 month old possibly have done to cause this so called mother to kill her?

  14. There are some really sick individuals in this world. The Death Penalty is too quick for her. She needs to serve a life sentence with photos of her little girl on all three walls of her cell to look at her every day.
