The church is down the street from where the remains were found on Friday.

The memorial had originally been placed closer to the home, but a neighbor asked that the memorial be moved from the tree where it had started after it expanded onto his property.

Organizers also said the items that have been left at the memorial will be donated.

Organizers were covering the memorial and the ground underneath with a tarp on Monday in anticipation of rain on Tuesday.

There is also another memorial at the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office in Blountville that continues to grow.

SCSO officials said Monday that, ” Once the memorial is taken down, we plan on distributing the stuffed animals to agencies across the State of Tennessee that help abused, neglected, or at-risk children.”

Evelyn’s mother, Megan Boswell, appeared in Sullivan County court on Monday. Her bond was increased from $25,000 to $150,000.
