it's insane that the lives of these parents changed so horribly so quickly. just like that, their lives would forever be empty. the only small piece of "comfort" anyone had was probably the hope that all 5 of the children were kept together. so fucked

I have a theory that when the sales man got angry and pissed off he then watched them go home to see if his plan would have worked out and when the "pinnacle grenade" hit maybe he was meant to blow up the house to try to kill the family but then failed and before this happened maybe he disabled the car then lured the kids outside and then when they went into his car he then turns on the lights but before he runs off with the kids he then drops those bones which would have made the family think that they passed away and then runs off with the children and he would have gotten to plenty of states dropping kids off in adaption centers and making harder for the police to find and this is my reason

absolutely not the house fire. it's like the entire town was sabotaged or in on it, for the firemen to have done nothing, nobody could reach anybody, anyone looking for answers or trying to help was swept out of the way. someone was definitely out to hurt this family. it makes sense that whatever his past was like in Italy followed him to America and due to his outspokenness, was shut down. freaky stuff for sure. i feel so bad for those parents. great videos my dudes.

It's likely the children died in the fire, and the police were so ill-trained for their job that they didn't find remains. Plus I sincerely doubt 2-3 hours is long enough time to search for remains, that were buried under a collapsed house, after being burned throughout a night. The parents were likely so grief-stricken that they didn't want to believe their children died -especially because no remains were found. It's like how people don't want to give up on missing loved ones because nothing is ever found.

1945? That's a bit ironic since that's when Hitler died, and when Trump was born. Jk I'm just trying to scare you. But that is actually when Trump was born and when Hitler died.

honestly this story frustrates me so much. like how absolutely annoying is it that law enforcement are incapable of doing their job???? like those parents were close to finding their kids so often and if the police or whatever just helped, they would've been found. but no, they kept searching for their missing children up till death, and even past that...

This is one of the saddest stories from my home state. When the billboard was finally removed, there was some disappointment from the community believe it or not. Being from a place where families and communities don't have a lot of money (compared to the rest of the US), really puts how hard they tried and the lengths they went through to try and reunite the family. Even folks from other parts of the state were frantically trying to do what they could to help.

theory: a strange man had been in their house before. he put bones in there to make it look like the kids were killed in the fire. when the fire began, the man took the kids and escaped with them. he made them believe that the rest of the family died in the fire. they put in a orphanage and were given to other parents.
