Disappearance of New Canaan mother reaches 3 weeks

Posted: Updated:
NEW CAANAN -

Friday marks three weeks since the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, a New Canaan mother of five children.

The 50-year-old was last seen Friday, May 24, when she dropped her kids off at the New Canaan Country School.

Police found her car that night at Waveny Park, a black 2017 Chevy Suburban.

Since then, the search for Jennifer has expanded from the park to her estranged husband's home in Farmington, a lake in Avon and a trash plant in Hartford.

Her husband, Fotis Dulos, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were arrested and charged with tampering or fabricating evidence and hindering prosecution in the case. 

Both posted bonds of $500,000 and have since been arraigned in court. They had to turn over their passports to authorities and wear GPS tracking monitors. 

 

Arrest warrants show police found signs of a physical assault and blood spatter in Jennifer Dulos’ New Canaan home. 

Surveillance video captured what appeared to be Fotis and Michelle driving through Albany Avenue in Hartford dumping bags with bloody items into garbage cans.

Fotis Dulos has hired attorney Norm Pattis, who is known for controversial cases.  

In a radio interview with WPLR, Pattis stated Troconis passed a polygraph exam and says she did not know what was in any of those bags.

Investigators say they have received over 600 tips regarding the disappearance of Jennifer and nearly 80 responses with video surveillance from homes or businesses. 

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 203-594-3544.
