On the night of 1945, the Sodder family experienced a huge house fire which ended up burning the entire house down. However, many different aspects of the story have suggested foul play, including no remains found of the children that were still trapped in the house, and how law enforcements and the fire department didn't arrive to the scene until 7 hours after the fire had started. The town was no help to the family at all, and only pushed for the case to be closed, stating that the children were nowhere to be found and it would be hopeless for the parents to continue looking. To add to the suspicions, the Sodder family received letters and pictures from an unknown source where the picture looked like one of their missing sons. To this day, this mystery still remains unsolved.
