3 Michigan Children Still Missing 7 Years After Their Dad ‘Gave Them To A Group’

Three brothers have been missing from the town of Morenci, Michigan since 2010. Andrew, Alexander and Tanner Skelton vanished from their home seven years ago, the day after Thanksgiving, according to Click On Detroit. Andrew was 9 years old, Alexander was 7 and Tanner was 5 at the time of their disappearance. The National Center for Missing Children has created age-progressed photos of what the brothers could possibly look like now.

The boys’ mother, Tanya Skelton, told Morenci police that her husband John Skelton had the children last. He was supposed to bring the boys back home to her. John’s original story was that he gave his three sons to “a group.” No group has ever come forward. It is unclear what kind of group he meant. Since then, his story has allegedly changed. John is currently in prison, serving 10 to 15 years, on an unlawful imprisonment charge, according

Why The Murder Of JonBenét Ramsey Is Still So Haunting And Unsettling 20 Years Later

It is one of the most arresting images of the 1990s: the 6-year-old beauty queen done up in lipstick and eyelashes, her blonde curls falling about her face. The aspects of her all too brief life fascinate us as much as the brutal details of her death and the mystery of who killed her. Since her mother Patsy called 911 to report her daughter missing that fateful December morning, we have been fascinated by the murder of JonBenét Ramsey.

From the outside, the Ramsey family of Boulder, Colorado appeared to be the perfect American family. Father John was a successful businessman, while his wife Patsy was a former Miss West Virginia. They had two children: Burke, 9, and younger sister JonBenét. From a young age, Patsy had enrolled JonBenét in a series of child beauty pageants, for which she won the titles of America’s Royale Miss, Little Miss Charlevoix, Little Miss

5 Questions We Still Have About The Death Of Tupac Shakur

Snapped Notorious: Tupac Shakur airs Sunday, September 10 at 6/5c.

Rap legend Tupac Shakur was murdered in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996 at the age of 25. Snapped: Notorious ‘Tupac and Biggie Special’ investigates the infamous crime with commentary and reactions from Tupac’s friends, business associates and industry insiders including rapper Yo-Yo, collaborator Danny Boy and journalist Toure. Despite being so high profile, no charges have been filed in the murder of Tupac Shakur. Here’s five questions we still have about his death.

 

Gang Related?

One of the most prevailing theories about Tupac’s death involves an altercation with the Crips. Hours before he was shot, the rapper was seen in a scuffle at the MGM Grand—caught on camera—with gang member Orlando Anderson. Although a gun matching Tupac’s murder weapon was found in Anderson’s home afterwards, he was never questioned by authorities.

What Happened To Child Star Joseph Pichler: Foul Play, Suicide Or Still Alive?

A child star vanished without a trace in the early morning hours of January 5, 2006. Joseph Pichler, 18, left a party in Bremerton, Washington. When he left the get-together, friends said he was in good spirits. That was the last time anyone ever saw him. His Toyota was later found parked behind a Mexican restaurant.

Joe had been acting since he was a child, and starred as Brennan Newton in the third and fourth installments of the Beethoven movies. He had parts in The Fan, When Good Ghouls Go Bad and a storring role in Varsity Blues. His co-stars spoke highly of him.

“He was really sweet,” James Van Der Beek told People. “And he was really, really good. I was inspired by him.”

Jesse Plemons, who starred with Joe in Children on Their Birthdays, said: “He knew the names of everyone on the crew, took time to get to know them, and

Oxygen Examines Case of Ex-Cop Drew Peterson’s Still-Missing Fourth Wife 10 Years After Disappearance

For 10 years, the fate and whereabouts of Stacy Peterson have remained unknown, even as her ex-cop husband sits in jail on two unrelated convictions — one for murdering a different wife and another for trying to kill the prosecutor who put him behind bars for that murder.

Now the Oxygen network promises a fresh look at the mystery and at Drew Peterson, the disgraced, attention-seeking former police officer in Bollingbrook, Illinois, who has long maintained he had nothing to do with his bride’s 2007 disappearance.

The two-hour special Snapped Notorious: Drew Peterson premieres August 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT. An exclusive trailer is at the top of this post.

The broadcast marks the 10th anniversary since Stacy, who was Drew’s fourth wife, went missing. He has alleged in court records and his public statements that the 25-year-old was cheating on him with another man and had run off with him.
