Police have finished searching a trash facility in Hartford for evidence in the Jennifer Dulos disappearance case, but say the investigation remains "very active and dynamic."
New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski announced the focus at the Material Innovation and Recycling Authority in Hartford ended Monday night – one month after the New Canaan mother of five disappeared.
Krolikowski says the public has provided police with over 950 tips regarding the disappearance of Dulos and nearly 80 responses with video surveillance from homes or businesses.
Police say they found Dulos' blood in her home and on items tossed in garbage cans in Hartford. Her estranged husband Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend Michelle Troconis are charged with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution in connection to the disappearance.
Both are out on bond, but now Fotis Dulos' attorney Norm Pattis has asked for a clarification of a judge's order that barred them from seeing each other. In the motion, Pattis says Troconis was overheard saying she still loved Fotis Dulos, believed he had nothing to do with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos and felt badly he had been accused of foul play.
Pattis also filed a motion to unseal a recent custody evaluation in the divorce case so it can be used in his client's defense. His motion says it will rebut claims Fotis Dulos was violent, controlling or menacing to Jennifer Dulos.
Previous divorce filings by Jennifer Dulos show she was afraid of her husband and thought he would try to hurt her.
Last month, the judge ordered that custody evaluation sealed to protect the emotional and psychological well-being of the children.
The attorney appointed to represent them says statements made about the study by Pattis are in direct violation of the court's order. He wants a status conference on the issue Wednesday. Pattis has asked for it to be delayed.
