    Hello WebSluths! I’m new to this community and I recently joined because I have a few questions about the Sodder case. Not about the children, but the private investigator known as C.C. Tinsley.

    I have had so much trouble with finding reports of him, as in most articles he’s mentioned only once before moving on. But on the wiki article about the case (Sodder children disappearance - Wikipedia) they mention; ‘The Sodders hired a private investigator named C.C. Tinsley from the nearby town of Gauley Bridge[1] to look into the case.’ This was exciting, because I finally had some sort of lead. I didn’t even know his name.

    Looking on the internet, (West Virginia Vital Research Records - Birth Records Search Results) I was able to find two men with the last name tinsley and a C letter name. I found Clarence Tinsley, and I believe this could be C.C. Tinsley.

    I am posting on here because I would really like to find out these details;

    •Who was C.C. Tinsley?
    •What happened to him?
    •Was he the detective to go missing in Kentucky?
    •Why is no one interested in finding him, his disappearance (if disappeared) could lead to some kind of clue?

    Any help would be appreciated! Thank you!

    C.C. Tinsley was one of the detectives hired by George. He discovered that the man who got mad at George for not buying life insurance from him served on the jury to find how the fire started.

    George hired another detective and paid him good money to follow a lead in Kentucky and he was never was seen again. It is believed he took the money and ran without any intention of following the lead in Kentucky.

    I hope this doesn’t come off as rude, I’m just genuinely interested! :)

    The only reason I have trouble believing C.C. didn’t go missing in Kentucky, is because I can find absolutely nothing on other this detective, not even a name. Tinsley’s identity is hard enough to find as it is, but I can’t find the other detective anywhere. Not even a name.
    Can I ask where you found that information?
