Mother In Custody After Her Missing Toddler’s Body Was Discovered
The body of a missing three-year-old boy found in a concrete structure over the weekend, and has been tentatively identified as Evan Brewer–his grandfather served two terms as mayor of Wichita, Kansas. Carl Brewer said he and his family “are devastated by the death of our sweet and loving grandson. We can not begin to make sense of this tragedy but are thankful the suspects are in custody.”
The toddler’s body was found in the concrete structure by the property’s landlord on Friday after he had served an eviction order.
Brewer’s mother Miranda Miller was arrested last week on suspicion of aggravated interference with parental custody. Miranda’s boyfriend Stephen Bodine was arrested the same day on suspicion of aggravated assault and aggravated interference with parental custody.
The police spokesman said Miller had been “actively eluding police” and was thought to have left the state at one point. Miller and Bodine are each being held on $25,000 bond. No charges have yet been filed in Evan’s death.
