In a gated community called Celebration, owned by Disney World, a mother and her three children were found dead in their home and the father was arrested at gunpoint.
Anthony Todt, his wife Megan and their children Alex, Tyler and Zoe, were reported missing by family members a week ago. Relatives said they last heard from them on January 6, while neighbors say they hadn’t been seen since mid-December.
Police only went to the Todt’s home on Monday – a day after a concerned neighbor called them. It’s not clear if the officers had been to the home after family initially reported the Todts missing.
The Daily Beast reports that the Todt’s had recently moved from Colchester, Connecticut, to Celebration, Florida. It’s not clear how long they had lived in the rented home but court documents show the couple had recently been served with an eviction notice.
Celebration, a gated community on the outskirts of Disney World, boosts population of around 7, 400 people and was created by the Walt Disney company.
