Evan's family says police confirmed to them that remains found in a concrete structure were Evan's.

Sunday night, people filled the driveway and the street to remember Evan. They lit candles and created a memorial for him.

Shayla Johnston, an attorney, and member of the family says the family has some closure after they say police confirmed Evan's death.

She says Evan's family fought long and hard to keep Evan safe and they're devastated they couldn't save him. She says something needs to change to keep abused children safer.

Gathered with friends Sunday, Evan's family remembers him as a little boy with a big smile who loved Batman.
