It's a possibility, but given he was a young boy there probably wasn't a lot of meat to him. Remember them saying not to "keep" Clementine, because of her size?

I like to think so. Probably not but since there is no direct answer to what happened I'll pretend the brothers got to him, or got caught in a bear trap.

Walkers got him most likely. There are really only 4 possibilities of what happened to him:
#1 he survived on his own (extremely unlikely), #2 bandits found and killed him (very unlikely), #3 St. Johns caught him and used him for food (unlikely, see comments above) or #4 zombies got him (extremely likely).
I think while the bandits were assholes they wouldn't kill a young boy just for fun. Let's say they find him, do I expect them to help him, give him food, shelter etc? Most likely not. Most likely they would say "bad day for you son" and move on. Maybe even search him for food or valuable items but that'd be it. St. Johns was answered. There was no way he could survive on his own.
I think he got killed by zombies most likely, or maybe he managed to hide somwhere and died of dehydration or even starvation if he had water.

Could've been the boy in the attic. He went atlanta, zombies noticed him so he fled into the house where the couple were. Eventually zombies got into the house and they locked him in the attic, while they went to their bed and killed themselves.

you do realize that the couple was in the attic itself?

I want to know why no one was watching the car. You have EVERYTHING in it.

I'm still wondering how it's possible to lost your son like that? You're both hunting TOGETHER, it's not like he fell off a cliff or anything.
I'm pretty sure walkers got the boy. Same way his wife and daughter died the day after leaving him.

My guess is that the father probably shot some game, but that it didn't die right away. The wounded animal takes off, with the two chasing it through the woods and/or following its blood trail. They get into some thick underbrush and get separated, but dad has tunnel vision on the potential meal and doesn't immediately realize they are separated. The kid sees a walker or something else that spooks him, and worsens his situation by running and getting completely lost.
Meanwhile dad manages to catch up with the now dead or dying deer, begins to butcher it for its meat, and realizes his son is no longer following behind him. He goes back to search for his son and never finds him, with the boy most likely ending up being killed by a walker either at some point during the search, or not long after.

Wasn't the stranger's name Adam?

It's actually kinda funny, we know his wife was called Tess, his daughter, Elizabeth and his son, Adam but we don't know the stranger's name.

The names Tess and Elizabeth distract me now because I think of The Last of Us and Bioshock Infinite :P
Two things I must point out:
The couple who committed suicide were NOT Fivel's parents. They broke through the wall in the attic and went into the place next-door, didn't they? They'd have noticed the dead couple when searching the mansion earlier, otherwise.
I was shocked by the person who said the bandits probably wouldn't do anything to a young boy. Look what they did to Jolene and her little girl. They were monsters.
