Father who ‘murdered family’ lived with dead bodies in Disney vacation home for WEEKS – The Sun

ANTHONY Todt was living with the bodies of the family members he allegedly murdered at the time of his arrest.

The Osceola County Sheriff's Office revealed that Anthony had been in the house for weeks with the lifeless bodies of his wife, three children and the family dog – who authorities believe were killed in late December.

Anthony was also without electricity as the landlord had cut the power on December 27, the same day he posted the family's eviction notice.

The accused killer's financial woes are also now coming to light.

An employee at one of his physical therapy facilities told The Sun that they had not been paid for a month at the time of Anthony's arrest.

The victims' decaying bodies were found on Monday when officers accompanied federal agents to the home so they could serve Anthony with an arrest warrant.

It was also revealed on Wednesday that Megan Todt, 42, and her three children – Alex, (13) Tyler (11) and Zoe (4) – may have been dead back on December 29 when police previously did a welfare check at the request of a family member.

Anthony and his company Performance Edge Sports LLC were hit with three lawsuits in the past year according to court records.

He settled the first just days before the alleged murders, but had not settled two others.

In all three cases, he had accepted investor funding for his business and then defaulted on his payments.

In addition to the $278,908.51 judgement, he also owed $63,525.82 and $36,200.79 in two other cases.

It is unclear why Anthony decided to pay off the largest judgement but not the $5132.05 in rent to avoid being evicted from the family's Florida home.

Police believe that the deceased had likely been dead since late December, but could not confirm that until the medical examiner had finished performing autopsies on all four bodies.

The family had been evicted from their rental home after being one-month delinquent with their rent but remained in the home, despite owning another home that was just 500 feet away.

Anthony split his time between Florida and Connecticut, where he had a physical therapy practice.

He had fallen on hard times how ever, and Anthony's license to practice had expired last year according to records obtained by The Sun.

The Todt family had been evicted from their property two days after Christmas.

Facebook messages had been posted by Anthony's sister the past two weeks hoping for any word on their brother or his family.

"I know a lot of people will have questions but we honestly do not have answers right now. Please let us know if you have seen or heard from Tony Todt or Megan Todt," wrote his sister Kellie last week."Please share this as I know a lot of people in Colchester know my brother."

She posted again later that day, writing: "This is a sensitive matter for our family so please don't ask questions, as we don't have a lot of answers at this point. Thank you everyone for your help and shares. Keep our family in your prayers. I last heard from Tony Todt on Monday January 6th."

It was also an out-of-state friend or relative who called authorities and ordered that December 29 wellness check on the family.

Now, some have begun to question why family members did not contact law enforcement.

Anthony's sister responded to this on Monday, shortly after it was reported that her brother was in custody.

"I have a good relationship with my brother. These last few days have been really hard for me and my family. I find it enraging that some people feel the need to exploit others pain," she wrote.

"I have seen some pretty upsetting posts about theories and nasty things being said about my sisters. To those people, I pray that you are never in this position and you should be ashamed of yourself. Tony if you happen to come across this please let us know that you guys are ok. We love you and you are terribly missed."

The children were reportedly homeschooled by Megan and spent most of their time in Florida.

It was when she and one of her sons failed to show up in Connecticut for a planned trip last week that concern turned into fear for family members.
