I tend to the theory of kidnapping, but I do not understand: after all these years that prevents the disappeared children finally show up? Are they still under the influence of the mafia after all these years?
Curious Curiouser

Surely the children were old enough to remember that they had a previous family, and once they were old enough, would search for them. Opinion? Tragically they are no longer alive, one way or another.

This is a sad case and I believe that they were kidnapped and slowly torn apart from each other and they are trying to find each one

There's a lot of things in the world we actually really don't know things like what really happens behind governments etc. thus, my guess is George maybe did some shady business or maybe he left a dark job or something and this is what happens but that rlly hurts, having that feeling and longing that your kids are still alive but you can't find them. Tbh i'd prefer knowing and be able to confirm that my kids are really up there in peace instead of wondering where they are my whole life. Overall the government hides a lot of things from everyone.

How more creepy can it be that a LIFE insurance salesperson is also a coroner 😰 SICKNESS! That's a conflict of interest. Why didn't the F.B.I. immediately do an independent investigation; that in itself is a red flag and at the denial of help from both agencies. That poor family. But why take the kids? Where'd they go?
good investigation, terrible narration. I hate it that they're just joking about a serious topic​ like this!

Denell L. Bennett Survivor/Warrior
You really forgot the theory about the child sex trade. Please remember that Italian children are really beautiful!!! So maybe Mr. Sodder was in the Italian mafia, maybe Mr. Sodder stole from the Mafia, or He was the Son of a Big Mafia Boss (His Father?) and his children were kidnapped then sold as child sex slaves; and then maybe some of the younger ones were murdered. Some of those pedophiles get off sexually, on killing helpless children!!! Those pedophiles are God awful and Damned-to-hell Actual True-To-Life MONSTERS!!!

I've been doing some more research about this and one of the firefighters was Jennie Sodder's (George's wife) brother at that time. ''According to one another account, the firefighters did actually find some bone fragments and internal organs in the ashes but chose not to tell the family''

'Fuzzyfoot88' 3 weeks ago
I find it hard to believe that this case is still unsolved what with social media and the like out there. Someone has to have seen them or is the child of one of the missing kids or something. I knew about this case before I saw this episode so to think they aren't aware people want to know what happened is a little naive. Either they are all dead or they/their children refuse to come forward, but someone out there has the answers.

I was watching this and the boy in the Box episode and I don't particularly appreciate the humor these gentlemen try to interject .. these are people who are either missing or deceased. Especially the boy in the Box. Having been born and raised around Philadelphia, I was very familiar with that story and to hear about this poor child who was murdered and thrown into a box with a blanket... That is nothing to joke about and there was nothing funny about that. I suggest these two clowns take their stand-up routine somewhere else because the subject matter has no place for humor

twas the night before Christmas and all through the house,not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. The house was on fire, which caused quite a scare.THE HOUSE WAS 2.7 MILES AWAY YOU COULD HAVE GOTTEN THERE! the house was quite litterally burned down to the ground,and five children disappeared, and have not been found.The children had visions of sugar plums in their head, but my guess is that the children are dead.
