He failed because IMO he didn't even try or WANT to kill himself. I mean, the guy was a hunter, he owned guns. He could have killed himself very easily.
Would they scale back volunteer searching because they know where the bodies are and don't want volunteers finding them?
All you can do at life is play along and hope that sometimes you get it right.
^ That makes perfect sense to me.
That or they are running out of resources and have decided to focus attention elsewhere.
Poor little boys.
Now they are saying they found 3 small nooses and are searching a body of water. The man has set everything up for an insanity plea and it wouldn't surprise me if he goes to the nut house
My grace is sufficient for you, for my my strength is made perfect in weakness...I love you dad!
Piece of shit.

He'll go to prison for sure.
^^ I agree...with the premeditation, lying to police after the fact, no way will this guy have a successful insanity defense.

Regarding the insanity plea, there is a great book covering it, called "Alone with the Devil". It was written by a court pyschiatrist who had to evaluate a whole slew of people to determine if they were competent to stand trial. Among those he found sane was Richard Chase, the "Vampire of Sacramento". Even though Chase was schizophrenic, he was found sane enough to stand trial because of his lead up to the crime (shooting animals first - to harden himself to killing living things), as well as his attempt to cover up the crimes.
Father of Missing Michigan Boys Gets 10-15 Years in Prison

John Skelton was sentenced Thursday to 10-15 years in prison in connection with the Thanksgiving disappearance of his three young sons, who are presumed dead.
The Morenci, Mich., dad has said he handed his boys off to an underground group to keep them from their mother, and that he wanted to deprive her of memories of her sons. Police, who found a noose in Skelton's home, vowed Thursday to pursue murder charges.
Lenawee County Circuit Judge Margaret M.S. Noe, who imposed a much harsher sentence than state guidelines, told Skelton that "their mother, their family, the schoolchildren, the community of Morenci will never lose their memory of these children. They will lose their memory of you."
Skelton was never tried for the disappearance of Andrew, Alexander and Tanner, ages 9, 7 and 5. Instead, he took a plea deal last July, pleading no contest to false imprisonment in exchange for the dropping of kidnapping charges.
The boys' mother, Tanya Zuvers, who holds out hope that the boys are still alive, told the court she can't stop thinking about the boys and whether they're okay.
"I worry about them – are they safe, warm, being fed and, most importantly, being loved?" Zuvers said. "My fear is that the answer to these questions are no because no one will ever be able to love those three precious boys like I do."
