The funny part to this episode is that I'm from WV and we're still horribly bad at getting to emergencies on time. Like, a few months ago, this guy was on a bunch of different drugs and was shooting at my neighbor's house and we called the cops at 11PM and they didn't show up until 6AM the next day. The police station, although is in the next town, only takes 30 minutes to get to the town we live in. And that's if you're going the speed limit
Samantha was hereXD
I like how the balance there videos. It's scary but then Shane always hits you with something funny!

There is a video game named 'Wick' which is based off the children, basically you get sent into a forest at midnight and much stay there till 6-7 am with only a candle wick and a match box the player must go around and find more candles before they run out of matches or the candle wick but whilst the player walks around they will be haunted by children if I remember correctly there was one girl, a baby, a boy that sleeps, a boy with a mask and another child that runs around, the player can explore the forest and encounter these children in different ways, but that isn't what makes the game interesting the fact is that the house the children were in was burned in a fire and no one found the body's, personality I love the game and you guys should try playing it it's rather funny to watch you get scared lolol best of luck not getting killed and if you do well then.... I'll see ya in hell you can meet me at the throne BYEZ *walks backwards slowly into darkness*

The family is so pity....I really hate the idiotic Fire Chief I fell like he can also be the possible one who started the fire or else he was paid cause the fire department also didn't answer the call so he actually knows that it is from the house of Sodder . I believe something really happened in Italy that's why that Father Sodder left cause a witness told em that she saw four of them with two men and two women that are Italian. I really believed they are kidnapped and they are told that they'll be killed if they said that... The family is really so freakin' pity 😭

These two guys (the hosts) are supposed to be funny, I guess, but not all stories should be told with such lightheartedness and jocularity. After all, the tragedy here resulted in the destruction of many lives. In memory of the distraught parents who lost five children, and the siblings who were forever damaged, this story should be told with all the seriousness and respect it deserves. There isn't really anything funny here.

What if the Sales man could've been diversion which could make them think he was the kidnapper as someone else could've kidnapped them and them leaving no evidence. And the "faulty wiring" could've been effected on certain parts of the house such as that lamp being powered by a generator such in other words the electricity was organized differently. So in Conclusion Something went down....something dark

Ok, so maybe arson was involved, that's reasonable enough. But how come none of the "kidnapped" kids ever came forward? Did they like being kidnapped? Why didn't they try to return to their parents once they were old enough?

'KNJ' 2 weeks ago
OK so I really hope that whoever the kids are, because I don't believe they are dead, hear or know about this case. If they do know about this, I hope they go back and give some closure. Their parents tried so, so, so hard to try and find their five kids, even going off on dead end clues. If the five kids had families, I hope they end up going to the remaining families and visit the graves of the parents. They deserve some closure, even if its to a gravestone marker

I do believe that this might have been a kidnapping of some sort, but I could have been a run away case or even a case involving the children burning the house down. Over all what I have to say is, whoever tried to kidnap the kids did a horrible job covering it up.
