Wichita Police: DNA Confirms ID Of Remains Found In Home


Wichita Police say DNA tests confirm what they suspected about the remains of a boy found in a Wichita home.

The results positively identified the victim as three-year-old Evan Brewer. He is the grandson of former Wichita Mayor Carl Brewer.

Authorities found the child’s body in a concrete structure inside a home on South Vine on September 2.

Police arrested Brewer’s mother and her boyfriend on child custody related charges a week before the boy’s remains were discovered.

The investigation is ongoing, and no additional information has been released.
