    Even more details of the fraud case coming out. I wish we could get our hands on the full affidavit.

    Man’s insurance fraud scheme led investigators to Celebration home where family was found slain, court records say

    Interesting thought. Could very well be....but not sure we will ever know.

    Seriously. It's awful. I hate these cases. Beautiful families that deserved to live and some coward decides slaughtering them is the solution to his issues?

    So he causes all the problems and decides to kill his innocent family, instead of himself. How does that solve anything? It's just evil.

    It seems to follow the classic family annihilator pattern though of shame and narcissism. I don;t know what these buffoons think is going to happen next though.

    That's what I don't understand. Your immediate family is gone, but you are still here with this legacy. Evil is the only explanation. The whole world will know you by this act. Unless he saw his father walk free and thought he could somehow get away with this?

    So, professionally I've seen a company be bled dry by the types of loans that he took out on his business. They're essentially payday loans for businesses with ALL the implications of that characterization. But, I still don't understand why he wouldn't just declare bankruptcy once this was all over. Adding murder to the mix just isn't rational.

    That's what I thought and then deleted. He had opportunities to shower after being arrested. I wonder how long it takes to wash off. Surely he had to shower? Jmo

    Unfortunately, it boils down to $$. A divorce can cost a LOT of money..... alimony, child support and lawyers. If these losers kill their spouses and get away with it, they have it all. They will risk their own freedom not to lose a cent of "their" money. Very sick people. And the sickest of all will kill their children too :(

    I'm a teacher, and I live about 20 miles from Celebration. I pay $2,200 a month. It's a lot for us. But we get by. I can't imagine that a guy who owns his own physical therapy business would struggle to pay $4,000 in rent. But I know there's more to his finances. And that's exactly what I'm interested in.

    Why did he need all of these loans? What was he doing with his money? I am guessing that he had been living a double life. First, he moved his family away from Connecticut despite continuing to run, apparently, multiple clinics there. That seems to suggest a need to put some distance between two lives.

    I suspect that he was siphoning cash out of his business and personal finances to fund living expenses for a girlfriend in Connecticut.

    Another possibility is that he was an addicted gambler. It said that he took trips. I wonder if he was going to casinos. Gamblers have been known to dig themselves deeper holes by trying to win themselves out of debt.

    It's painful to know that a family was hurting so close by. Obviously, I would have sacrificed all of our Christmas spending to help out a family in crisis. In fact, I've talked in the past about how we don't really need anything and should spend our money to help people who are more needy. I almost did it this year, but I thought my kids would protest. It turns out that I didn't spend much on them but got some things they like, and they were very happy. So I think I'm going to give it a shot next year. I just need to find a way to identify a family in need.

    It's sad that so many people are secretive about their financial problems. Everyone deals with something. One bright spot in this whole thing is when I read that the sheriff said that there's help out there for people who are struggling with life. That message can't be sent loud enough.

    Maybe if Tony Todt's confession is full of self-serving lies, the manner and cause of deaths will shed more light on his mindset.

    I wonder if he possibly had life insurance policies on Megan and/or the children and was caught before he could figure out how to capitalize on them without incriminating himself? Just a passing thought.

    On the money subject...many years ago I lived near Colchester in Norwich for about a year. There are two VERY large casinos in that area; Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. It is possible that he was gambling when he was home. We still don't know exactly where he stayed when he traveled back to the area (I've heard some rumors, but nothing in MSM yet).

    I remember when Casey Anthony made bail and all the reporters were shoving microphones in her face filmed by other people with big cMeeAs. How times have changed I 11 1/2 years. Now they all just have iPhones

    It's usually drugs, sex, or gambling that cause major financial issues. I think you hit the nail on the head. Jmo

    It is a yucky thought that’s for sure but that’s probably what it was.
    If the power to the house was shut off then the hot water heater probably wouldn’t kick on if he tried to take a warm shower.

    Have we heard that he had a mistress in CT he was spending lots of $ on trying to hold her interest even though he was a lumpy middle-aged loser who had to commit fraud to support his lifestyle? If not, I see that coming.

    I'm wondering just how many hours a week he really worked? Was he angry at his wife for deciding to leave the business, relocate to Florida and spend her time homeschooling their children?
    I think so.
    However, I don't think she would have done all that if she really knew what was going on with the business.
    With all the phony income from his fake billings, she must have thought that they were financially okay, and that he was working his butt of for their family.
    When nothing could be further from the truth.
    I'm just not going to be happy to hear how he killed them.
    I am guessing similar to Chris Watts.
