BLOUNTVILLE — Megan Boswell’s bond has been increased from $25,000 to $150,000 at the request of state prosecutors in the case of Boswell’s missing 15-month-old daughter.

Human remains believed to be those of the toddler, Evelyn Mae Boswell, were discovered Friday at a property on Muddy Creek Road. Megan has been jailed since Feb. 25 on charges of filing false reports.

District Attorney Barry Staubus, second judicial district, said his office requested the hearing to increase Megan’s bond and he called only one witness: Tennessee Bureau of Investigation Special Agent Brian Fraley.

Staubus said Fraley is among the many members of law enforcement who’ve been investigating the Boswell case since Evelyn was first reported missing on Feb. 18. The toddler had not been seen in two months or more. Fraley’s testimony supported points the prosecution made in its motion to increase Megan’s bond, Staubus said.
