    The funeral arrangements sent from the father are certainly ominous and might point to a 'murder-suicide' scenario. It's possible the father changed his mind and carried this out in a way which made recovering the bodies difficult. Although, the fact no bodies have ever been found offers some hope they might still be alive somewhere.
