She's not stateless. She's a citizen of the Islamic State.

Unfortunately there is no roof design that would make much difference in reducing the danger of snow removal. Even the gasshou-zukuri mentioned above (never mind the ENORMOUS cost of these roofs) requires dangerous snow removal.

A seven-year old left on a road would walk down the road in the direction the car that his family is in had gone. It is completely counter-intuitive that he would strike out into the dark and forbidding forest. The probability of a bear coming along in the less than 10 minutes the family claims to have left him, killing him (no blood on the ground) and dragging him away (again, no blood on the ground) is incredibly small. It's also not really how bears behave. I suspect this will develop into something other than how the parents have been describing it.
