Abuse recorded of Wichita boy found in concrete, affidavit says

December 26, 2017 - 4:34 pm

Video images of a Wichita boy being severely abused months before his body was found encased in concrete in the home where he lived with his mother and her boyfriend were described in court documents backing up the mother's and boyfriend's arrests.

The Wichita Eagle reports the images appear to show the abuse occurred while Evan Brewer's father was frantically trying to get authorities to intervene.

Miranda Miller and Stephen Bodine are charged with murder in the death of Miller's son, Evan Brewer, 3. The toddler's paternal grandfather is former Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer.

Evan had been the subject of a custody battle, and his father contacted the Kansas Department for Children and Families and police with concerns. The new DCF leader wants a thorough review of the agency.
