On Christmas Eve 1945, George Sodder's five children disappeared without a trace during a mysterious house fire. During the fire, attempts to extinguish the blaze or alert authorities were hampered by a missing ladder, cut phone lines, and sabotaged vehicles. The coroner ruled that the children perished in the fire, but their remains have never been found.
The mystery of what happened to these children has never been solved despite the grieving parents' lifelong search. Various people have claimed to have seen the children alive in the weeks after the fire, but none of the reports have been substantiated.
Were the children victims of sex trafficking? Or was it a simple, explainable house fire?
