Police Believe Skeletal Remains Found In Montana May Be Linked To 3 Missing Michigan Boys

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.

Police Didn’t Seek Medical Help For Teen Who Kept Banging His …

In 2013, police arrived at a middle school parking lot in Mesquite, Texas to discover 18-year-old Graham Dyer banging his head on the ground. He had taken LSD and was having a bad reaction.

According to the Austin-American Statesman, police decided to arrest him. En route to the local jail, Dyer continued to hit his head on the backseat of the police cruiser, the door, and even the metal separation cage. At some point, the cruiser pulled over so that police could taser the teen, something that the boy’s parents only learned years later. The police also allegedly shocked him in the groin.

For more than two years, the Mesquite Police Department refused to release their footage of the teen. The clip shows disturbing images of four police officers repeatedly tasing him in the backseat of the cruiser. One of the officers can be heard telling him, “Mother[expletive], I’m going to kill

Wife Of Man Killed By Police While Begging For His Life In Graphic Video: ‘It Was An Execution’

In 2016, Daniel Shaver was shot to death by police. The officer who killed Shaver, Philip Brailsford, was recently found not guilty on charges of manslaughter, despite the existence of an incredibly graphic video of the incident, in which Shaver can be seen begging for his life. Now, Shaver’s wife is speaking about the incident, categorizing the slaying as “an execution.”

“I’ve been fighting for two years and screaming. Finally, now, it took people watching my husband die a very horrible inhumane death for people to care,” Laney Sweet said in a recent interview.

“You had a man begging for his life, and he was shot five times for what?” she continued. “For his elbow coming up too high? For being confused? For being compliant? Why did he deserve to die? He didn’t.”

The video in question had been sealed by courts until after the not guilty verdict was delivered. In it,

Police Confirm 4 Michigan Highway Shootings Are Connected

Michigan police say they have now established a link between four seperate shootings that occurred on I-94 and I-96 near Detroit last week. A Michigan State Police spokesperson now says that the “four shootings are one single incident.”

According to The Huffington Post, a Southfield woman’s vehicle was struck by a bullet on December 7 while driving on I-94. On Monday, the highway was closed by police as they looked for evidence. It’s unclear if anything was discovered.

The driver said he was heading westbound when a car pulled up near him and opened fire. Other cars were struck by bullets reportedly coming from a silver Impala. There is no known relation between the victims. No other shootings occurred following the incidents on the 7th.

Police: Three Alleged Gang Members May Have Been Involved In More Than 10 Murders

Police believe that three men from Kansas City, Missouri who were arrested last week may have been involved in over ten murders in addition to other violence.

Chrizion Banks, 20, Trevontae Stewart, 24, and Cedric Ford, 28 are suspected of a variety of charges. Stewart and Ford have been charged with owning illegal firearms, according to KSHB. Banks has been charged with robbery.

Capt. Chris Young with the Violent Crimes Enforcement Division told KCTV: “These individuals are involved in numerous robberies, numerous shootings. They’re wrapped up in numerous homicide investigations as well. These guys have been able to avoid the police and charges for some time now. I mean, the bottom line is they intimidate their witnesses and the victims of the crimes they commit.”

Young did not specify any of the details of the homicides. The trio all allegedly members of the  “Young Hitters” gang. They were all listed on

Police Release Body Cam Footage Of The Night A Republican Senator Was Caught In A Motel With A Teen Boy

Police from Moore, Oklahoma have released shocking body cam footage of the night a Republican Senator was found in a motel room with a 17-year-old boy he met off Craigslist.

The release of the footage, shot in March, came just days after former Sen. Ralph Shortey, 35,  pleaded guilty to federal child sex trafficking last week. As a result of his plea deal, child pornography charges were dropped, according to KFOR.

On March 9, police went to a Super 8 Motel for a welfare check. Soon, police began knocking on the senator’s door.

“What we are worried about is you having a juvenile in there. Yeah, this one,” a cop said to the door.

After seemingly getting dressed, Shortey answered the door in a religious tee, which is printed with a bible verse Ephesians 5:22 (which references women submitting to their husbands) in addition to the phrase, “now go make me a sandwich.”
