Sodder Family Tragedy: The Mystery of Five Missing Children, West Virginia Crime Files: Volume 1, Douglas MacGowan

Author Name    Douglas MacGowan

Title   Sodder Family Tragedy: The Mystery of Five Missing Children, West Virginia Crime Files: Volume 1

    Paperback, 27 pages

   108

One Christmas Eve in 1945, the Sodder family goes to sleep, the kids dreaming of Santa. By morning, their house is in ashes and five young children have vanished. Cursory policing, planted "evidence", Italian politics, and small town crime all play into the picture. The FBI was called in, but no records remain of their investigation.

This is a story that has fueled speculation well beyond Fayetteville, West Virginia for decades. Coincidences, highly unusual unexplainable events, and peculiar behavior are present at every turn in this true-life tragedy. Read about nationwide when it happened, and investigated and reported on in West Virginia all the way up till the 1970s, this is a story you will never forget.

This is indeed a most unbelievable yet true story; and the title of the 1970 report on the subject called “The Saddest Christmas Story Ever Told” still rings true.

Price = 4.95 USD
