There are many unsolved mysteries. There are many things that have happened that never got reported. It’s sad and many families don’t get proper closures.

the two idiot men laughing about the deaths is the most disturbing aspect of this. two actual sociopaths.

I heard you say the basement was fine but the bones were found near the basement what if the salesman did start the fire and the other stuff but they ran into the basement for some reason and died because they buried the basement so what if the kids are in the basement.

I don’t believe it was an accident. It was purposely set by one of the enemies of the sodders. I believe the reason the ladder was gone was because the kidnappper used it, prior to when George looked for it, to get the children out when they were unconscious from the heat and smoke of the fire. The firefighters took a long time because it was most likely snowing and cars weren’t that great in 1945. The police and firefighters refused to talk to the FBI because they felt that the case was hopeless. That man who sent that letter, that was one of the missing sodders, no doubt. It’s a bit concerning that a PI went missing whilst looking for a missing child who might not be missed afterall.

I question the motive and how many people were originally involved? It would take a lot of guts and a huge grudge. Why didn't the kids run?

Did they ever check the basement?

Game Pirate (1 day ago)
My theory is the children were kidnapped well before the fire started. After that, the fire was started as a cover up. Or maybe they intended to kill the rest of the family members but somehow they survived? It's not definitive what exactly happened. But it is certain the kids were kidnapped!

I have a theory! If the basement had not been damaged, The children must have gotten under there. And soon after the fire, they may have died off of starvation or lack of water.

This is so frustrating because usualy those unsolved cases have close to no evidences, or they all point in different directions. BUT HERE they were so many different things you could analyse and they all make sense but they were just ingored I AM SO F R U S T R A T E D

On the night before Christmas no one through the house not even the children who were stuck in their rooms No flesh nor teeth, not even a bone, or even a source of the bodies remains. The children are gone without a trace but at least they had breakfast It seems that someone set the house on fire but it looks like there are no people with common sense I think that beef looks like their hearts but I also found some bread that looked like some vertebrae But the sobber children are still missing without a trace.

Okay. I have a theory- sorry if it's already been said. So, I think that Realtor person was the culprit, but he had crime buddies. So, one night, they go and throw the napalm bomb on the roof, making it catch on fire? I don't know if napalm is flammable, I know it eats away at skin. The daughter gets everyone out and runs to the neighbours to call the ambulance, whilst there, the Realtor's crime buddies grab the kids, bind them so as there's not too much noise, so the girl, if she were to come back, couldn't see or hear her siblings. They also grab the girl and drive like hell away. I think they threatened, blackmailed the firedepartment, or cut their phone lines maybe (although there is no report of that) or tampered with the phones temporarily so as they wouldn't ring- maybe they were also in on it? The crime buddies start thinking and say "Huh, instead of killing the kids, we coud make a quick buck out of them" and choose to sell them anonymously to couples who can't have children or other "buyers". Make of that what you will. The kids, now seperated and fearing for their lives, probably blackmailed into silence in exchange of their live or their siblings', say nothing. To add the cherry on top, they got bone fragments from a grave or an autopsy or something and threw it into the now pile of ash- or paid someone to do it, is the most likely answer and blackmailed, because if they waited for the house to stop burning and turn to ash, they'd be there a while and risk getting caught. They probably thought that the bones WOULD burn into ash if they threw it into the fire and wanted to make it seem like the kids died in the fire, so the paid person threw it in after it was done.

These story’s are creepy but right when you are going to leave they make a joke and pull you back in
Ally Elizabeth (10 days ago)
But if you think about it, at least two of the kids had to have argued. There was a 12 year old girl and a 14 year old boy, and both would most likely put up a fight. There has to have been some trust or great motivation to leave.

what is there 5 children were still alive and watching this mystery hahaha
Who else is watching this on Halloween
Zoe Gonzalez (18 days ago)
The children could still be alive, but very old. Betty would be 78, Jennie 81, Louis 82, Martha 85, and Maurice 87. If they grew up in captivity or in an orphanage the likelihood that all of them are alive is slim. Best bet is on Betty or Jennie.
christoforos0609 (18 days ago)
What exactly is so hilarious ? 5 children were kidnapped, a family lost their house and all belongings. And you present the story like it's something soooo funny.
Markulator (18 days ago)
This screams mafia. House burns down, the authorities are paid off or threatened to be blind. Kids were probably told their parents died. Anyone who gets close to people resembling the missing kids, vanish. You would be foolish to believe they burned in the fire. The only thing is, who knows where the now adults are and what they are doing.
