A man from Miami, Florida, confessed that he killed his wife, 3 kids, and their family dog in a community built by Disney World.
The incident happened to Disney’s famous Florida theme parks.
44-year-old Anthony Todt, a physiotherapist, confessed that he killed 42-year-old Megan and his children 13-year-old Alex, 11-year-old Tyler, and 4-year-old Zoe.
He also killed Breezy, the pet dog of the family.
Russ Gibson, the Sheriff of the Osceola County, said, “I cannot understand what would cause a person to commit such evil and horrendous acts.”
Todt, who is cooperating with the police, is facing 4 charges of first-degree homicide and one count of animal cruelty.
The motive for the killings remains unknown.
Todt was seen handcuffed and dressed in a white jumpsuit earlier as he was being brought to the Osceola County Jail.
According to the public records that were published in the Orlando Sentinel, Todt was in serious financial difficulties in 3 states.
He is also being instigated for fraud.
The police found the bodies in the family home on Monday but were unable to definitively identify them until Wednesday.
The family was not home since January 6, 2020.
Family, friends, and other people started a group on Facebook that asked people to look for them and share information about the family.
The page prompted the police to launch an investigation.
