A box containing bones and teeth has been discovered inside a shed by a home in Missoula, Montana, according to Fox2 Detroit. Police confirmed that the remains belong to three children 10 and under. Now, over 2,000 miles away, a family in Michigan is bracing for news that it may be what is left of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton, three brothers who vanished in 2010.
Nothing previously has linked the three children to the state, but the Michigan State Police have been working with the authorities in Missoula to see if the parts belong to the three young boys, WXYZ Detroit reported. Now, police and the boys’ family are awaiting the results of forensic testing.
In the meantime, their mother posted a statement, both on her front door and to Facebook.
Andrew, Alexander and Tanner vanished from their Morenci, Michigan home seven years ago, the day after Thanksgiving. According

Residents of the Seminole Heights neighborhood in Tampa are being asked to stay inside after a 60-year-old man was shot to death while crossing the street on Tuesday morning, The Miami Herald reported.
Police are investigating the murder as the work of a possible serial killer responsible for the death of three other people in the same neighborhood.
In addition to new victim Ronald Felton, 60, police believe the same shooter killed Benjamin Mitchell, 22; Monica Hoffa, 32; and Anthony Naiboa, 20. All three were killed within days of each other in October.
The suspect in Felton’s shooting was thin and wearing a black baseball hat at the time he came up behind Felton and shot him in the back, police said.
Police believe the shooter is likely to live in the neighborhood, and police cautioned that residents should check their homes and make sure that, if they own a gun, it is

There’s no such thing as ghosts… or is there?
There are countless stories of human interactions with spirits and those that have “crossed over” beyond the grave. From Marilyn Monroe to Abraham Lincoln — these documented encounters are hard to deny as paranormal activity.
Here are five ghostly sightings that are almost too convincing not to believe.
1. Claude Monet
If a famous artist died, where else would his ghost show up other than to his own exhibit?
In 2015, a special Claude Monet exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art was overshadowed when a mysterious figure who looks exactly like the late French Impressionist painter showed up in a photograph.
“This snapshot taken by a staff member is not retouched or Photoshopped. And we have heard from others that they’ve seen the man, but there hasn’t been a confirmation in his identification!” Kelley Notaro, a communications associate with

Fictionalized versions of real-life crime stories often exaggerate or stylize true stories for the sake of drama, but sometimes, the true facts of a case get so distorted by moviemakers that it becomes difficult to tell truth from fiction.
We’re here to sort out some of the biggest things the movies got wrong about very real crimes.
1. Ed Gein never used a chainsaw.
The iconic horror film “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” purports to be a depiction of real-life events, but the story of the movie greatly embellishes the actual crimes of serial killer Ed Gein.
While it is true Gein cannibalized his victims and preserved their body parts as keepsakes, pretty much everything else in the film is totally made up: even the eponymous detail of the chainsaw.
2. Zodiac’s infamous phone call went much differently in real life.
In Fincher’s “Zodiac” film, a person who claims to be the mysterious serial killer calls into

Authorities believe they have found the remains of the last victim of the Arizona flash flood tragedy. According to CBSNews, the remains found Wednesday may belong to missing 27-year-old Hector Miguel Garnica. He would be the 10th victim to perish in the flash flood.
Gila County Sheriff’s officials said that the official identification of the body is dependent on DNA analysis. However, they do believe that the body does belong to Garnica and have notified his family.
Last weekend, the extended Garnica family was swimming along the river at the Tonto National Forest. A flash flood came upon them and killed nine, including Garnica’s wife and three children (pictured above).
First responders called the flash flood a “40-foot-wide black wave” moving at 45 miles per hour. “All of a sudden, this wall of water, and rock and debris, just came rushing at them,” a witness said of the incident.
Four of the 14 family members were rescued. They
