DETROIT (WWJ) John Skelton, the father of three brothers missing since Thanksgiving Day, tells Channel 7 in a jailhouse phone interview he did not harm the boys.

Skelton says he has “always maintained” he did not hurt nine year-old Andrew, seven year-old Alexander and five year-old Tanner, who were last seen outside Skelton’s home in Morenci, in Lenawee County.

Morenci’s police chief said Tuesday that the case is now a homicide investigation. 

Skelton is charged with parental kidnapping.

Despite the denials of harm, Skelton has refused to give any information regarding the where-a-bouts of the boys and remains jailed.
