The bodies of Megan Todt, and kids Aleksander, 13, Tyler, 11, and Zoe, four, were found when cops went to arrest Anthony on a separate charge at the home in Celebration, near Walt Disney World, on January 13.
In the letter, Todt claimed his wife poisoned the kids by tainting a dessert, and then killed them before taking her own life, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
He began by insisting: “I am 10000% INNOCENT of all these preposterous charges.”
“Long story short, she gave them the Benadryl/Tylenol PM pie, separated them, woke up at 11:30 [p.m.], stabbed and then suffocated each one,” Todt claimed.

“At the news of this I ran to the bathroom and puked — I was weak.”
He claimed he came home and his wife confessed to killing their children.
Todt claimed that his wife said she “released” the “souls” of the kids before killing herself in front of him.
The letter, dated June 19, was sent to Anthony’s father, Robert Todt in Westfield, Massachusetts, The Sentinel reported.
Prosecutors copied the letter as evidence and it was released to The Sentinel as part of a public records request.
The entire family was last seen alive on December 14.
Todt has claimed that he barely remembers the weeks between the murders and his arrest.
Cops went to arrest Todt on a separate charge on January 13, when they found the four bodies, stacked in a bedroom and decaying.
The family’s dog, Breezy, was also found dead, a source previously told The Sun.
Reports revealed that the mother and children were dead for at least three weeks by the time their bodies were discovered.

Authorities determined that Megan was stabbed twice, while Aleksander and Tyler were stabbed once.
Zoe was the only one not stabbed, investigators said.
Cops said Todd also tried to take a lethal dose of Benadryl when police arrived to do a welfare check.
Shortly after the bodies were discovered, it was revealed by The Sun that Todt had been evicted from his home two days after Christmas.
Court papers also revealed that Anthony had debts totaling $200,000, indicating the massacre could have been fueled by financial ruin.
Todt had learned months before the bodies were discovered that he was under investigation from the US Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Inspector General regarding fraud claims.
In January 2019, he received an eviction notice for on of his physical therapy practices in Connecticut.
