Top cop says mother of missing toddler Evelyn Boswell is lying to them
A mother who didn’t report her toddler missing for two months has been lying to investigators, the sheriff leading the investigation said.
Sullivan County Sheriff Jeff Cassidy made the explosive allegation against Megan ‘Maggie’ Boswell at a press conference Friday regarding her missing daughter Evelyn Boswell.
Asked about Boswell’s claims about what happened to 15 month-old Evelyn, Sheriff Cassidy said: ‘I’m not going to go with what the mother said, because some of the stories are conflicting and inaccurate.
‘She is cooperating, but some of the information she’s given us hasn’t really been accurate.
‘During our interviews our stories aren’t leading up to stuff we went out and checked on.
‘Surveillance camera footage, witness testimony – a lot of her story hasn’t been accurate.’
Sheriff Cassidy refused to be drawn further on Boswell’s alleged lies.’
He also revealed that he believes Evelyn was last seen alive on December 10 2019 – more than a fortnight earlier than previously thought.
The sheriff explained that the youngster, who was only reported missing on Tuesday – 70 days after she vanished – was last credibly seen for a babysitter who cared for her.
Evelyn’s mother has not been ruled out as a possible suspect in her disappearance, Sheriff Cassidy said, although he added that investigators are keeping an open mind.
The toddler’s disappearance was reported to social services on February 18 by Boswell’s dad.
Boswell had full custody of her daughter, although Evelyn did have visitation time with father Ethan Perry, who is cooperating with the police investigation.
He has also appealed for help to find the missing youngster in a series of moving Facebook posts.
Sheriff Cassidy issued a fresh appeal for information on the whereabouts of a silver 2007 BMW 3-Series, with the Tennessee licence plate 3M9-6W9, whose drivers he believes may have vital information.
The cop would not answer further questions on the car’s links to his probe.
