While we hope the Sandusky area sighting of the Skelton boys is real it doesn't seem very credible. The woman and the owner, of the donut shop, a former police officer, doesn't know about three missing boys when they walk in? There is a newspaper stand right outside the front door and on Sunday after Thanksgiving this was front page news. Why would someone especially a former police officer wait a week to report this information. Maybe that's why her story seems rehearsed she had time to practice. The police know more than what they are saying and if they thought any of this could be true they would be all over it. They know this is as made up as her television face.

I saw on Nancy Grace last week that the father did admit to killing the boys and throwing them into a restaurant dumpster. Also said that 3 small nooses were found in his house. I haven't heard this from local authorities though. Has there been any talk of the police searching dumpsters or landfills??

If he did that, it is unlikely the boys bodies will ever be found again. Last year, a man in my area killed his 2 year old step-daughter by leaning his knees on her chest as she was having a tantrum, until she stopped breathing. Then he actually put her body in a trash bag and walked it down to a local store's trash bin and tossed the bag in the bin like trash. Her body was never found - so even though the guy was prosecuted, the mother of the child will never have closure because her child's body went to a landfill, or else got burned up in the city's trash incinerator. Pathetic and extremely sad.

Thank you for that link. I am having a very difficult time with this - because I am a gramma of the same ages of boys as the Skelton brothers. It's so close to home!
