Human Remains, Tested and Cleared
Officials in Montana say the remains of three children, found last September were not those of three Michigan brothers. Police said a box containing bone fragments, rocks and teeth was found inside a storage shed. According to the Missoula County Sheriff’s Office, tests determined they were not the remains of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton. In fact, tests show the samples were at least 99 years old. The three boys, ages 9, 7 and 5 were last seen at their father’s southern Michigan home on Thanksgiving of 2010. Jack Skelton claims that he never harmed the boys. He originally claimed that he gave the boys to an Amish group, but his story has changed since. He is currently serving time for unlawful imprisonment.
