On Christmas in 1945, the Sodder Family home went up in flames. 4 out of the 9 children escaped, but the other 5 were never seen again. While some think they perished in the fire, parents George and Jennie were convinced the children were still alive. Some strange details seem to confirm the fire was caused by foul play. Danny & Sara go through the events and theories of what happened to the Sodder children. Plus, updates on the Alonzo Brooks case, Fort Hood, and Amanda Knox.
