Probably Mafia business. Guy and his family are from Italy where the whole Mafia game is pretty big. Ladders gone and trucks are tampered with which shows this is not an amateur kidnapper. The father seems to be very good at investigating details which could mean the father had ties with the Mafia. The fire department and police could have been forced to shut up and not talk because of the Mafia. What really got me chills was that the investigator who was sent to Kentucky disappears, probably captured by the Mafia. The father was talking bad about Mussolini so more Mafia evidence. 90135 is a postal code in Italy so the kids may have been taken there and then who knows what happened. I'm *very* convinced this was all Mafia business. The father may have had un-payed money or something else.

Bones and teeth! Teeths do not burn in the fire so if the children would have burned in the fire we would have found teeths too.

They said that they found bones in the basement in 1949, 4 years after the incident. Martha, who was 12, would be 16 by then. Maybe the children were kidnapped but 4 years later Martha and the others were killed and her bones were kept in the basement.

I wish they'd do more recent cases I mean all of those are so old they'll never get solved because all of those involved are dead The only thing I can't grasp about this case is why they didn't go looking for their family if they were indeed kidnapped or something They probably did die

they got burned i reckon, my theory is the fire was hotter than usual because the air is more dense in the winter therefor the fire will have more oxygen????? or aliens

my great-grandfather was kidnapped by fascists because he was a partisan and he got ptsd from the torture they did to him so it's not unbelievable that someone kidnapped this poor man's children for a similar reason

You kinda glossed over the fact that although the Sodder family was a respectable middle class family in their neighborhood, their father faced a lot of disagreement and spite from others because on his negative stance against Mussolini, the current ruler and fascist dictator of Italy at that time. Wikipedia is pretty helpful.

Simple commoners. The answer is so incredibly clear. I am incredulous as to how you humans cannot believe that your world was crumbling beneath your feet while watching this video. YouTube has blinded you from the truth. I laugh at your ignorance due to poor wifi connections. Millions of scholars in both of our planets have tried to prove it to you. You are stubborn and arrogant. The earth is flat. It is the truth.

There's a high chance that they could have perished in the fire and we're chasing down a rabbit hole. But if they are alive and adults now, they should contact their family despite any threats, or even if they might be living in much better conditions with their kidnappers.

the firemen didn't arrived in time because they were short in people due to the war. And also, the couple had 10 children and the oldest child had accounted that he tried to physically awaken them but couldn't do it.

Well it makes me question the whole thing when you consider that if the kids survived, why wouldn't they try to come back and find their parents? Even if they were adopted out, the one boy was 14 fuckin years old!! It's not like he would've forgotten his parents

'FlamingHeartComics' 3 weeks ago
In addition to the kids being kidnapped, they must've been kidnapped and then the fire was started, because it'd just be a lot more trouble to kidnap 5 kids while a fire is happening, like that's a bit unnecessary.

the children would probably of spoken up if they were out there... they either died, which i honestly think is unlikely, or as kidnapped children, forced into some sort of slavery, in italy...or something..

Ok this is all a load of crap. In Christmas 1945 Mussolini had already been dead for a while and Italy was in the midst of a revolution. Some fake Salesman isn't going to get on a boat all the way to this guy because he said 'bad' things about Mussolini
