WPD finds 3-year-old boy’s remains in concrete structure

“It was a green tarp, but you can see a box if you would. Heavy. I hate to say it, but it looked like a small coffin. Cause it was like the size of a toddler bed. But very heavy. (It) took a forklift to get it out of the house,” one man in the South Vine neighborhood says.

He says he can’t imagine losing a child.

“I didn’t know the man and woman who lived in the home very well, others say they mostly kept to themselves,” he says.

That man and woman were arrested earlier last week on charges connected to a different custody case in the Sedgwick County Jail.

Miranda Miller was booked for child custody charges on Wednesday and Stephen Bodine was also arrested for aggravated assault charges.

Miller was connected to a 3-year-old that went missing back in July named Evan Brewer according to Kansas Missing and Unsolved, but police have not identified the child whose remains were found in the concrete structure.

The Wichita Police Department made a grisly discovery Saturday night on a call to a home in the 200 block of South Vine.

Police removed a concrete structure from the house and later found the remains of a child, about 3 years old, inside the concrete structure.

A property owner cleaning out a rental property alerted police to the suspicious concrete structure emitting an odor in the house.

Residents of the house, a 40-year-old man, and a 36-year-old woman were arrested earlier in the week and are being held in the Sedgwick County Jail on different charges associated with a child custody case.

An investigation into the circumstances of the child’s death is ongoing.

Police have a tentative identification on the child, but confirmation of the child’s identity is being coordinated through the Sedgwick County Medical Examiner.
