The most recent report I read indicated that every re-evaluation of multiple SIDS deaths in families had turned up information that the deaths had other causes. This was a couple of years ago, but I haven't seen anything to refute that since. It didn't rule out the possibility of SIDS occurring more than once within a family, but suggested that they were probably either a result of genetic issues not previously discovered, or due to non-accidental events.
