    Body of child found in concrete structure, neighbors say a child was missing

    A few people who live near the home on South Vine where the body of a 3-year-old boy was found Saturday said they never saw the child and didn’t know the people who lived there.

    They did come home one day about two weeks ago to missing child flyers attached to their cars. Then soon after that, neighbor Toni Freund said she saw 30 to 40 people protesting outside the house.

    “They were just saying, ‘Bring him home,’” she said Monday.

    Police were called to the house Saturday after the landlord, who was cleaning out the rental property, found a suspicious concrete structure emitting an odor inside the house, Officer Charley Davidson wrote in a news release Sunday.

    The residents, a 40-year-old man and 36-year-old woman, were arrested earlier in the week on different charges associated with a child custody case, Davidson said.

    “NOTICE,” the flyers say. “Pursuant to Court Order, entry onto these premises by MIRANDA RYAN MILLER, STEPHEN BODINE, or any person claiming by, through or under them is a criminal trespass for which you will be prosecuted.”

    The front door is now secured with a padlock and tape dated Sept. 3.

    Police haven’t officially released the names of the man and woman they say were arrested earlier in the week.

    They also haven’t released the name of the boy who was found. In their Sunday statement, Davidson wrote the investigation into the circumstances of the boy’s death is still ongoing.

    “We have a tentative identification on the child, but confirmation of the child’s identity is being coordinated through the Sedgwick County Medical Examiner,” he wrote.

    Family waits to hear if child's remains are those of missing boy

    A family is waiting to hear if the remains of a child found in a concrete structure Saturday are those of a missing boy.

    Saturday, police said they found the remains of a 3-year-old child in the home in which the missing boy was living, but they have not released the name of the child whose remains were found.

    Miranda Miller and Stephen Bodine lived in the house where the remains were found. They were arrested last week and are being held at the Sedgwick County Jail on different charges in connection to a child custody case, police say.

    Miller is connected to a missing child case, police say. That missing child is Evan Brewer, her son. The attorney for Evan Brewer's father, Carlo Brewer, says Evan was living with his mother (Miller) and her boyfriend, (Bodine) at the time of his disappearance.

    Police have not given the name of the 3-year-old child whose remains were found Saturday, but say they have a tentative identification.

    The attorney for Carlo Brewer says her client was asked for a DNA swab over the weekend to check the child's dental records.

    Body of 3-year-old child found in concrete in Kansas rental home

    The remains of a 3-year-old boy were found in a concrete structure in a rental home Saturday after the landlord reported a foul odor, authorities said.

    Police recovered the boy’s remains in his home, where his mom, Miranda Miller, 36, lived with her boyfriend, Stephen Bodine. The two had been arrested on different charges last week regarding a child custody case, KWCH-TV reported.

    The station reported that Miller's son, Evan Brewer, had been missing for a few months. Authorities have not named the child or whether the two are connected to the child’s corpse.

    Again, if people don't want them, but the other parent does, why not just give them to them? I do not understand this at all.

    Carl Brewer is the grandson of former Mayor Carl Brewer. He released this statement:

    "We are devastated by the death of our sweet and loving grandson, Evan. We can not begin to make sense of this tragedy but are thankful the suspects are in custody. We request prayers and privacy for our family during this difficult time and while the police continue their investigation."

    Court documents: Family tried to get help for Evan Brewer before disappearance

    Documents provided to FactFinder 12 Tuesday show the family of 3-year-old Evan Brewer was very concerned and tried to get him help from police and state agencies before the boy was reported missing in April.

    A Protection from Abuse Order (PFA), filed by Carlo Brewer in May on behalf of his young son, says since July 2016, there were multiple reports of abuse made to the Department for Children and Families.

    The PFA says Evan had been seen with injuries and wearing dirty clothes. It also says there were 911 calls about Evan being abused in the care of his mother, Miranda Miller.

    Another document claims Miller's boyfriend, Stephen Bodine beat Miller and Evan so severely, they needed CPR.

    Wichita police say they tried several times to serve the PFA couldn't find Miller or Evan.

    We still don't know how the three-year-old died, but documents show someone wanted to help him, long before the child's remains were found.

    Court documents, video provide further insight into Evan Brewer case

    We've seen documentation proving that Carlo Brewer, the father of 3-year-old Evan Brewer, was fighting for his son.

    Wednesday, video shared with Eyewitness News shows he wasn't the only one. That video shows family and friends protesting and begging for two people inside a home in south Wichita to turn over Evan Brewer.

    Court documents show Carlo Brewer was worried about his son's safety. He filed protection-from-abuse orders and wrote that he contacted the Department for Children and Families four times.

    Documents show there were at least three 911 calls related to Evan. Based on its written policy, DCF says it does investigate abuse and can take action to remove a child if necessary.

    We do not know what kind of investigation DFC completed.

    DCF says it can't say anything about Evan Brewer's case because it's still an open investigation. However, once a medical examiner confirms the body found in the home on South Vine is Evan, DCF's policy is that we can have access to the child's entire case file.

    Nearly the same story as Adrian Jones and same inadequate state of Kansas CPS with same damaging info that nobody did anything about.

    It's all about control. Sickening as it is, that is what I believe.
    The other reason is the parent who has custody wants the child support money.

    The right thing to do would be to give the child to the parent or family member who loves and would care for the child.
    How very sad for this poor little boy.

    Give me a cattle prod and 20 minutes with those killers. I'll leave it at that. :)

    First signs of abuse that child should have been removed and placed with a family member who could be trusted.
    The agency has some liability for his death if they were aware and did nothing.
    Just my opinion.

    FF12: Arrest affidavits released in case surrounding custody of Evan Brewer

    We now know more about what led to the arrests of Evan Brewer's mother, Miranda Miller and her boyfriend, Stephen Bodine. Documents also show how the Department for Children and Families tried to help the child.

    According to the probable cause affidavit, police arrested Miller for Aggravated Interference with Parental Custody after many attempts to contact her with protection from abuse orders.

    The affidavit says in May, Evan's father, Carlo, filed a protection from abuse order against Miller and the Sedgwick County Sheriff's Office tried several times to serve it. Deputies left business cards and eventually taped the PFA to her door. Each time, they said, nobody answered.

    The document says in early August, a detective and officer went by the home again and Bodine told them he was packing Miller's things because she was moving. However, the affidavit says Bodine would not tell the investigators where Miller was going or where she was at the time.

    Officers also contacted Bodine and Miller's landlord, documents say, and the landlord provided a picture of Evan showing he was healthy that he said he obtained from Miller.

    These documents also give us the first look at how the Department for Children and Families tried to help Evan. The affidavit says a DCF worker stated she had received several intakes about Evan and had gone by the house three times on separate days. The worker said she also sent a letter to Miller and emailed her as well as going by the home a fourth time and leaving a note and DCF pamphlet.

    Judge seals records on Wichita 3-year-old found in concrete

    A judge has sealed state child protection records on 3-year-old Evan Brewer – whose body was found encased in concrete in his home – finding that no evidence has been presented so far showing that the Wichita boy died from child abuse or neglect.

    A spokeswoman for the Brewer family, Shayla Johnston, took issue Wednesday with the idea that there has been no evidence presented that Evan died from abuse. There was plenty of evidence and court input leading up to his death, she said.

    “Evan was under protective orders because judges found he was in danger of death by abuse,” Johnston said. The orders were against Evan’s mother and her boyfriend. Evidence had already been shown that Evan was “in danger of imminent bodily harm,” Johnston said.

    Evan’s body was found “encased in concrete,” Johnston said. “That doesn’t happen by accident.”


    The judge cited several reasons for sealing the records including saying there isn't evidence that's been presented showing Evan died of abuse or neglect, no cause of death has been established, the City of Wichita requested the documents be sealed and the city has provided evidence showing releasing the records would interfere with an investigation.

    Wichita Police have yet to arrest or charge anyone in Evan's death which is something Kirby said has them confused as well.

    WICHITA -- The mother of a three-year-old boy whose remains were found encased in concrete in a Wichita home in September and her boyfriend have been booked on suspicion of felony murder and child abuse, reports CBS affiliate KWCH.

    Wichita Police told the station Miranda Miller and Stephen Bodine were booked Monday morning on the amended charges in connection with the death of Miller's son Evan Brewer.

    Bodine, 40, and Miller, 36, have been in custody for three months on other charges, the Wichita Eagle reports They were charged after the boy's remains were found Sept. 2 with counts related to child custody.

    The child was the grandson of Kansas gubernatorial candidate Carl Brewer.

    "I am grateful to the men and women who worked to investigate Evan's death and those who will prosecute the case," Carl Brewer said in a statement released on Twitter. "We have hope the trial will bring justice for Evan and begin healing for our family."

    The boy's remains were found by a landlord who was cleaning the home after evicting the couple. The landlord discovered a concrete structure and noticed an odor coming from it, Wichita Police said. He contacted police, who discovered the remains that were later identified as Evan Brewer.

    The landlord told the Wichita Eagle the concrete had been poured into a form sitting in the laundry room of the home. The child had last been seen in July.
