There are some good theories here, but a few people are missing something. There's two Skip Brokes--if one of them is dead, then where is the other one hiding at?
I theory--and it goes along with @melb623's theory a little bit, sorry--that Brandi had a past relationship before she met Skip, and she broke up with that man for whatever reason. That man couldn't get over it, and when he found out that Brandi had married Skip, he decided to impersonate him so he could get Brandi back. He already had blonde hair, and he was determined enough to change his looks to match Skip's. But he couldn't change his eyes, so he either got contacts until his death... or people just didn't notice. I know someone who has two colored eyes, one blue one brown, and he told me alot of people don't actually notice that until after several months of knowing him, or sometimes even years. Or it could be because the eyes are green--I find that green and blue eyes can easily blend together and are hard to differentiate between the two of them, but that could just be me. Might just be me.
Anyway, the man kidnapped Skip and hid him somewhere, but didn't kill him. He wasn't crazy enough to do that. Brandi also got pregnant with the third son by this time as well, so who the real father is still a mystery. It could be either one of them.
Skip escapes wherever he was hidden at and races home. Brandi happens to be out somewhere and Dustin is at school, so Skip and the man are by themselves. The man is swimming, and Skip--angry about what had happened--removes the pool ladder, resulting in the man drowning.
Fearing what he had just done, Skip runs off to never be seen again, and also leaving his family to believe he's dead, which is why he doesn't show up as living in the family tree. And that's my theory.
