"Shattered," a podcast from WDIV-TV and Graham Media Group, investigates the shocking 2010 disappearance of the Skelton brothers from their home in Morenci, Michigan.
John Skelton, the boys' father, claims he gave the boys away to a shadowy underground group. Police believe a far darker version of events, and John Skelton remains locked up in a Michigan prison on kidnapping charges, refusing to help investigators conclusively find what happened to young Alexander, Tanner and Andrew nearly eight years ago.
