Father Of Three Michigan Boys Missing Since Thanksgiving Googled: 'How To Break A Neck!'

Tom Skleton claims he gave his sons to an underground organization to protect them from their ‘abusive’ mother, but chilling new information suggests they may not be found alive.

Tom Skelton pleaded no contest to three counts unlawful imprisonment on July 28 and faces 15 years in jail. In court, the judge revealed Skelton’s internet records show he searched for information about how to break a neck a week before his sons vanished. How awful. This sounds like the Casey Anthony case all over again!

Judge Margaret Noe also revealed Skelton had told investigators: “The children will hibernate until they graduate.”

Skelton initially claimed he gave Andrew, 9, Alexander, 7, and Tanner, 5, to a friend, called Joann, who he met online. After investigators cleared Joann of any involvement, Tom changed his story and said he gave the boys to an “organization.”

He alleged their mom Tanya was abusive and he feared she’d harm their sons– claims Tanya strongly denies.

She’s still hoping she’ll find Andrew, Alexander and Tanner — but the family is beginning to fear the worst and that Tom Skelton will cheat justice.

Family spokeswoman Kathye Herrera says, “The family supports all the decisions made by law enforcement.’

“There is a sense of discouragement that John will not get the sentence he deserves… This will not be over until the boys are home.”

Tom Skelton will be sentenced on September 15.

Does this remind you of the Casey Anthony case, HollyMoms? Remember how someone had searched for chloroform and neck breaking on the Anthony family computer?

Do you think the Skelton boys will be found alive?
