They say that the boy was 14 so the bones couldn't be him however this was in 1949, 4 years after so he would of been around 18 by then. Or it could be a murder that the bones were from.

The life bussiness man said he will destroy the children, not murder. So, it's possible that he did kidnapped them, sell the children to different people and the officials in that town are paid for them not to tell anyone nor the family who really did kidnapped them, and the private investigator is possibly killed. Well, this is my conclusion 😅

These are my therioes and u don't have to agree with them so don't hate The parent needed to get rid of some kids to save money The kids were not in the house and where able to escape but not remembering there history family or anything about there live Kids had lived a long life not remembering a thing and eventually died of sickness or old age The kids had something to do with it not wanting to share attention or have to share other things or not having to share money or rooms Kids did actually die trying to escape and where acually turned into dust They were murdered They were murdered and not ever found

Well I mean wouldn't the children call for help or something? I mean the kidnappers probably died a long time ago. The children very likely still have memories of the childhood, so wouldn't we have heard something by now?

Here is what happened. The Sicilian mafia found out that George was speaking out against Mussolini. To get revenge, they set fire to the house, payed off the police and fire department, and took the children. Mafia are strong nationalists so it would make sense

the father had just rewired the house and his ladder was later found ana nearby ravine. also it apparently took so long for the fire department to show up because the chief was the only one there and he did not know how to drive the truck. I also find strange how if the sodder children survived that they wouldn't remember being kidnapped and the house burning and later return when they were older. I mean I understand if the 4 year old didn't remember, but the 14 year old probably would have.
Writ In Water
'Writ In Water' 3 days ago
I have a theory that the children are buried on the property somewhere, and that the mother MAY have had something to do with it. I seriously doubt that any of the children are alive, as a couple of them were teenagers at the time of the fire, so it's doubtful they could 'forget' what happened, or that they would not protest when in public (such as when they supposedly had breakfast at the diner next morning). I also strongly doubt they died in the fire, and their bodies were simply never recovered, as completely destroying a body, including the bones, is a very complex task to accomplish, even using specialized equipment. I think the most likely explanation, when you ignore all the legend and rumors which cloud this case, is that they were killed on the property and at least some of the family members knew about it and covered it up. Just a theory though - don't mean to cause any offence.

What's with all the joking in these videos? I've watched a few of these and you just seem to make light of the events throughout them. Regarding the slow response of the firefighters, they were low on man-power due to the war and had to relay messages between each person, rather than have some central dispatcher. Also, the chief was unable to drive the truck and had to wait for someone to arrive who could drive it, before he could pick up the others. And for those trying to create some conspiracy theory that the slow response was on purpose, it should be pointed out that one of the firefighters was an uncle of the dead children.

For me, even though this happened so long ago, I find that these two guys, who are laughing their heads off--regardless of what happened to the 5 children--are extremely disrespectful! So disrespectful that I couldn't stomach the video feed, and terminated it at 5:21 minutes into the feed. At best, you are jerks! You have a horrible attitude!

a telephone repair man who came to the house afterwards also said that the phone wires were cut, not burned wich explains why they couldn't reach the fire department. so no this was deffinitly no accident. someone burned the house and wanted the house to burn long enough for them to take the children. that is why the sodder family wasnt alowed to reach the fire department as that wouldnt shorten their time in kidnapping the children.

wait wait wait, if the life insurance salesman described what happened and the directive just went gone with the money, also there was 2 men and 2 women, probably the life insurance salesman and the directive for the men it was them, but for the women i think it's the women that reported were the children were, but they were lies those might be the people that did it.
