On July 15, 2020, Briseida and Sukhjinder Sran reported their two-year-old special needs son, Thaddeus, missing from the family’s new home in Madera, California. When the parents stopped cooperating with the police early in the investigation, Thaddeus’s parents came under suspicion, which only intensified after the public learned that the couple had another child, four-month-old Divina, who died five years earlier. After Thaddeus’s charred remains were found miles from home, Briseida and Sukhjinder were arrested.
This is the story of two beautiful siblings who never had the chance to meet during their time on earth. It’s also the story of a community that came together first to find a missing little boy, then to ensure he would never be forgotten.
This is the tragic story of Divina and Thaddeus Sran.
