For nearly forty years, travelers along Route 16 near Fayetteville West Virginia, were met with a billboard featuring blurry photos of five children. Each child had dark hair and solemn eyes. Below the images were their names and ages—Maurice, 14; Martha, 12; Louis, 9; Jennie, 8; and Betty, 5. Accompanying their names was speculation about their fate.

The small town with a main street barely a hundred yards long, was steeped in rumors regarding the case, with speculation often outweighing concrete evidence. There was even disagreement about whether the children were actually dead. With this episode of Still Unsolved, we hope to find answers. This is the case, of the Sodder Family.
