Investigators seen digging in wooded area in Farmington possibly connected to Jennifer Dulos disappearance
More than a dozen of law enforcement officers returned Tuesday to a Farmington property in connection to the Jennifer Dulos case.
The house is about 10,000 square feet and the land is 5 acres. It appears the focus for investigators was the woods behind the backyard.
Chopper 12 captured the massive police presence at 80 Mountain Spring Road - a place investigators have scoured before in the disappearance and presumed death of Jennifer Dulos.
Law enforcement officers dug holes in the backyard and used a ground penetrating radar while K-9s walked the scene - one that included the major crimes van and dozens of unmarked police cars.
Jennifer Dulos was last seen May 24, 2019 in New Canaan. Police believe she was killed by her estranged husband Fotis Dulos.
Though they haven't found her body, Fotis Dulos was charged with murder last January. He killed himself a few weeks later.
Fotis Dulos' former girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, as well as his friend and former attorney, Kent Mawhinney, have been charged as conspirators.
Mawhinney got his bond reduced and was released from jail in October.
Court documents show that happened after he met with investigators to talk about the case and possibly discuss a deal.
The property was one of several owned by The Fore Group, Fotis Dulos' homebuilding company. It's referenced in his arrest warrants as a place that police say he went to after attacking Jennifer Dulos in her garage.
It's a case that has captivated much of the state, with community members hoping for some closure soon.
"All we can do is to be patient, wait for sufficient evidence to be brought forth so that there's a justice that's available for Mrs. Dulos," says John Carusone, of Avon.
