My theory from two minutes in, the five children got out, lit the fire and made it so you couldn't ring the fire department and then ran

Erin Briggs

If the basement was still there, couldn't the kids have ran to the basement during the fire which could be why the lights were on in the ground floor house? The ash could have covered the top of the basement trapping the children inside. Did anyone clear the ash and look inside? Eventually, they would have died leaving they bodies buried in the basement and as the ash and soil was on top of the basement, no one would have ever found them. Therefor their bodies could still be in the basement of the house. This is probably really hard to understand, but if no one looked in the basement after the fire this could be true.

This was a tragedy. A family lost 5 children. I don't think their laughter and joking well presenting this story as appropriate. If I was a member of the Sodder family, I would be mad, like they aren't treating my family tragedy with the respect it deserves.

Cerise Hood
'Cerise Hood' 1 week ago
I know for a fact that a parent would still look for their missing children after all those years because my grandma lost my Uncle during a storm while he was fishing [our town was next to a beach] and to this day, even with einsheimer [cant spell. I'm sorry ;3;] she still remembers looking for him, all the information she got about him and still wants to look for him to this day.

Those kids were probably taken by the Italian mafia and brought to Italy, that is why there has been a lack of communication. They're in separate countries

I like how the reason a lot of these cases are unsolved is because people either don't know how to do their fucking jobs or organizations are corrupt af.

Here's a theory: Someone in the community didn't like the remarks the father was making about that Italian dictator, so they got his kids in on running away and starting new lives in adoption centers all over the world. that's very possible, maybe the kids weren't happy in the house. because it doesnt make sense to me how a 12-year old and 14-year old would just let this happen
Party Poison

whats really sad is that probably only betty is still alive (seeing as how she was five) anyone involved in the kidnapping or buying of the children or whatever you believe would have been dead for at least 15 years now. so if betty is never found (and even if she was its likely she may not even know she IS betty) no one can ever 100% say what happened

okay but what if... the children planned everything out and started the fire? what if there's some dark family secret that they wanted to get away from and the only way to do it was to fake their own deaths? like, what if the father was pretty intent on solving the case not to just find the children, but to get them back to ensure whatever this secret was stayed hidden? idk I'm too much of a conspiracy theorist
