Is Fotis Dulos' girlfriend cooperating with authorities in disappearance case?

Posted: Updated:
NEW CANAAN -

There are signs Michelle Troconis may be cooperating with investigators in the disappearance case of New Canaan mother Jennifer Dulos.

Dulos was last seen May 24. Police found evidence of a crime scene in her New Canaan home and items with her blood on them in trash cans in Hartford.

Dulos’ estranged husband Fotis Dulos and Troconis, his girlfriend, have been charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection to the case. Police found evidence of a crime scene in Jennifer Dulos’ New Canaan home and items with her blood on them in trash cans in Hartford. Security cameras captured Troconis and Fotis Dulos throwing out what appeared to be that evidence.

Fotis Dulos remains in jail on $500,000 bond. Troconis bonded out.

Cellphone video shows investigators leaving attorney Andrew Bowman's office yesterday after sitting down with Troconis. What she told them and how it might help the investigation is unknown.

And today a silver car carrying a woman who appeared to be Troconis left Fotis Dulos' home in Farmington, trailed by investigators.


High-profile criminal attorney Phil Russell, who is not affiliated with the case but has been following it, shared his thoughts on the investigation.

“It's pretty clear there's an agreement to cooperate with the prosecution, and I believe in a case that is as pressurized and as time-sensitive as this, the goal is to get the cooperation done and take it on faith and work on the details later,” says Russell.

Jennifer and Fotis Dulos were going through a contentious divorce case for the past two years. His divorce attorney filed yesterday to withdraw from the case.

Police continued Friday to search a trash facility in Hartford and properties owned by Fotis Dulos in Farmington.
