THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE SODDER CHILDREN” and More! #WeirdDarkness

Listen to ““THE DISAPPEARANCE OF THE SODDER CHILDREN” and More! #WeirdDarkness” on Spreaker.

IN THIS EPISODE: One of the most haunting mysteries to ever occur in West Virginia – and perhaps even in America – began during the predawn hours of December 25, 1945. The fire that occurred at the Sodder home that night was the key to the mystery, but whether it was a vanishing, a kidnapping, or a mass murder has never been determined. *** Plus, even though a young man was tried, convicted, and died in prison for the murder – along with two others – there are many who believe that Suzanne Degnan’s murder was never actually solved. And that may be the reason that Suzanne’s spirit has never rested in peace.
