Morenci Dad Pleads No Contest In Case Of Missing Boys

MORENCI (WWJ) – John Skelton, the father of three missing boys from Morenci, Michigan, has pleaded no contest to three charges of unlawful imprisonment of his sons.

Skelton entered the plea as part of a deal with prosecutors in Lenawee County Circuit Court. The plea comes a week before his scheduled preliminary exam.

Skelton’s sons — 5-year-old Tanner, 7-year-old Alexander and 9-year-old Andrew — disappeared last Thanksgiving weekend, while in their dad’s custody. Skelton has repeatedly said that his sons are still alive. He said he gave the boys to “an organization” to keep them safe, but won’t say where they are.

Earlier this month, Morenci Police Larry Chief Weeks said recent public service announcements have generated some new leads in the case.

    Chief WEEKS probably should have said, “If only I had taken a responsive action the day John came into my office with this situation, we may not be in this mess”
