The Sodder children disappearance

The Sodder children disappearance is a well-known unsolved mystery that took place on Christmas Eve 1945 in Fayetteville, West Virginia, USA. The Sodder family, consisting of parents George and Jennie and their ten children, lived in a two-story house in Fayetteville.

On the night of December 24, 1945, a fire broke out in the Sodder house. George, Jennie, and four of their children managed to escape, but the other five children – Maurice (14), Martha (12), Louis (9), Jennie (8), and Betty (5) – were never seen again.

The cause of the fire was never determined, and the remains of the five children were not found in the debris. The Sodders later became suspicious of the circumstances surrounding the fire and began their own investigation.

They discovered that the phone lines to their house had been cut, that a ladder they usually kept against the house was moved, and that there were no footprints in the snow around the house except for their own. They also received strange phone calls and a letter after the disappearance of their children, leading them to believe that their children may have been kidnapped.

The Sodders hired private investigators, but they were unable to find any solid leads or evidence. Over the years, several sightings of the missing children were reported, but none of them were confirmed.

The case remains unsolved, and the fate of the five missing Sodder children is unknown. The case has attracted widespread attention and speculation, with many theories put forth, including organized crime involvement, a revenge plot against George Sodder, and even the possibility of the children being taken by the Italian mafia. However, none of these theories have been proven, and the case remains a baffling mystery.
