    Mother of five, Jennifer Dulos has been missing since Friday, May 24, 2019.



    A desperate search continues for a missing mother of five in Connecticut. Jennifer Dulos, 50, was last seen on May 24 in New Canaan.


    CBS New York has learned that police are convinced Dulos is a victim of foul play but on Friday, police said that they had not recovered a body and they "have not classified this case as a homicide." They said they would not discuss any possible persons of interest or suspects since the investigation is "active and ongoing."

    On Thursday, investigators expanded their search into Westchester County, New York. CBS New York reported the missing woman's parents own a mansion on Mallard Lake Road in Pound Ridge.

They said they would not discuss any possible persons of interest or suspects since the investigation is "active and ongoing."

    On Thursday, investigators expanded their search into Westchester County, New York. CBS New York reported the missing woman's parents own a mansion on Mallard Lake Road in Pound Ridge.

    Police from New Canaan, Conn., visited that property Thursday as they pursue leads in a desperate search for the mother of five, including two sets of twins. All of her children are safe with family, CBS affiliate WFSB-TV reported.

    Dulos vanished from her rental home in New Canaan after dropping the children at school on Friday. Her vehicle was found abandoned near Waveny Park, where Bill Stuek walks his dog.

    "I find it incredible," Stuek said of the situation. "Incredible, and also the spread of the information as to what has happened has been lacking."

    Police haven't shared much information as they've search, but sources confirmed they're finding no activity from the missing woman's cellphone or credit cards.

    Investigators are taking close look at her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos.

    In divorce papers, Jennifer Dulos accused her husband of infidelity, cruelty, and threatening to kidnap the children and take them to Greece.


    He denied the charges, and in a letter filed Tuesday claimed the children are under armed guard at the Fifth Avenue apartment of their maternal grandmother, Gloria Farber, and he wants them returned to him.

    Looks like the ex-husband owes Jennifer's family over a million dollars for an unpaid real estate loan:

    But court papers in two lawsuits filed in 2018 show Fotis Dulos stopped making payments and owes his estranged wife’s family $1.7 million.


    Richard Weinstein, an attorney representing Jennifer Dulos’ mother, Gloria Farber, and her late father, Hilliard, said Fotis Dulos stopped making mortgage payments on the Farmington home months ago.


    The mortgage was guaranteed by money put up by the Farber family, Weinstein said.


    According to the documents, Fotis Dulos owes the family a total of $1.7 million after defaulting on a loan for a property in New Canaan and for the purchase of the Farmington home where the family lived until the couple separated in 2017.


    The lawsuit is still in the discovery phase with the plaintiffs filing motions for a judge to require Fotis Dulos to turn over bank statements and other evidence.

    In another document, obtained by The Connecticut Post, Dulos said her husband was verbally abusive and she feared he would take her children away from her. “I am afraid of my husband. I know that filing for divorce and filing this motion will enrage him. I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me in some way,” a 2017 affidavit reads. She added that Fotis Dulos showed, “irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling behavior. I am afraid for my safety and the physical safety and emotional well-being of our minor children.” Fotis Dulos denied the accusations.

    Jennifer Dulos also wrote that Fotis Dulos had threatened to take the children to his native Greece or somewhere else where she would “never find” them, The Post reports. She also said her estranged husband had bought a handgun. “I am terrified for my family’s safety, especially since discovering the gun, since my husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior,” she wrote in the affidavit.

    “Detectives from the Connecticut State Police Western District Major Crimes Squad are currently in the Hartford area assisting New Canaan Police Department with search efforts,” state police confirmed around 4:20 p.m. Friday.

    The agency declined any further comment on the matter and said additional information would come from New Canaan police and the Stamford State’s Attorney’s Office.


    Richard J. Colangelo, the Stamford State’s Attorney, declined to comment.

    The Hartford Courant reportedabout two dozen state troopers and firefighters searched the area of Adams Street and Oakland Terrace along Albany Avenue Friday afternoon. A crew searched a storm drain in front of Scotts’ Jamaican Bakery, but found no evidence, Hartford Fire Deputy Chief Harry Tulier told the Courant.

    A WFSB source said Thursday that law enforcement were treating the case as a homicide. But Ferraro said Friday the investigation remains a missing person and criminal case.

    “Investigators from the New Canaan Police Investigations Unit as well as the Connecticut State Police Western District Major Crime Squad continue to work in partnership on both the missing person case as well as the criminal case,” Ferraro’s statement said.

    Police searched a property on Mallard Lake Road in Pound Ridge, N.Y. on Thursday, which records show is owned by Jennifer Dulos’ late father Hilliard Farber. The home is about a 15-minute drive from Dulos’ New Canaan rental home. Ferraro confirmed the search in Pound Ridge but wouldn’t disclose any more information.

    Police take DNA swab from missing woman’s estranged husband

    State Police collected DNA from Jennifer Dulos’ estranged husband Fotis Dulos on Friday, a source told FOX61 Saturday.

    New Canaan police confirmed their criminal investigation “does involve securing search warrants.” The department would not go into detail about what items are listed on the search warrants.

    A source told FOX61 that one warrant was a body warrant, another will give police access to Dulos’ Jefferson Crossing home.

    Dulos was seen driving away from his Farmington home in the middle of a State Police motorcade Friday evening. A source said that motorcade was taking Dulos to execute the body warrant. A buccal swab of DNA from Dulos’ cheek was taken, as well has a hair sample, the source told FOX61. We’re told an attorney was present during the procedure and no questioning took place.

    Husband of missing Connecticut mom and his girlfriend arrested, charged with hindering prosecution, tampering with evidence

    [​IMG]

    NEW CANAAN, Conn. -- The estranged husband of Jennifer Dulos, the Connecticut mother of five who has been missing for more than a week, was arrested and charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence, New Canaan police said Sunday.

    Fotis Dulos, 51, was taken into custody in Avon, Conn., on Saturday around 11 p.m., and then transported to New Canaan Police headquarters for processing. His girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, was also arrested and booked on similar charges.

    Investigators intensified their search Sunday morning at Fotis Dulos' sprawling 10,000-square-foot mansion. More than a dozen state police vehicles, along with two canine units showed up at the residence while others gathered near the road.

    In the past 48 hours, state police obtained DNA samples from Fotis Dulos, who married Dulos 13 years ago but for the past two years has been locked in a contentious custody battle over the couple's five children.

    The disapperance of Dulos is being treated as both a missing-person case and a criminal investigation.

    The 50-year-old brunette was last seen driving a black Chevy Suburban nine days ago, when she dropped off her children -- ages 8 to 13 -- at their private school in New Canaan. Authorities spent three hours on Friday handing out flyers that featured a picture of Dulos and her vehicle.

    Members of the close-knit Connecticut town have been gripped by the case.

    "Stuff like this doesn't happen here," Leila Roxo, an associate at LoLo Bag, an accessories boutique in New Canaan, told Fox News. "It's a really quiet and safe town. Parents are OK just dropping off their kids and letting them walk around town, eat, have ice cream, buy something and then picking them up. It's pretty safe."

    Roxo, who has a 6-year-old daughter, said she worries most about Dulos' children and the scars they may carry from their mother's disappearance.

    "The 8-year-old is definitely going to remember some stuff," Roxo said. "I don't know how far apart the other ones are, but I have a 6-year-old and I feel like if this were to happen to her, she'd definitely remember."

    A vigil for Dulos was held Thursday night at St, Aloysius Parish, where almost 200 people gathered in the rain for the half-hour service.

    "We could be wondering, we could be speculating, we could be guessing," Father Rob Kinnally, the St. Aloysius pastor said. "But it is best that we are praying."

    Another vigil has been planned for Sunday night.

    Husband of missing Connecticut mother allegedly owes over $2.5 million to mother-in-law

    The mother of a Connecticut woman whose been missing since May 24 claims her daughter's estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, owes her more than $2.5 million in loans. Court documents reveal Fotis, a luxury home developer and owner of building company the Fore Group, may have had financial troubles.

    Police arrested Fotis and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis on Saturday. Though no body has been found yet, the investigation is being treated as a homicide, and they are facing charges that include tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution in the first degree, reports CBS News' Mola Lenghi. Meanwhile, Jennifer's children are safe with her mother as the case unfolds. CBS News reached out to Fotis' attorney about his financial situation but has not heard back.

    Estranged husband of missing Connecticut woman held on high bond; prosecutor says more charges expected

    Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband of missing New Canaan mother Jennifer Farber Dulos, was held on bail of $500,000 after a prosecutor said during his court appearance Monday that more charges are expected.

    The case against Fotis Dulos was continued to June 11. His attorney, Eugene Riccio, said he did not believe Dulos would be able to post bond Monday. Prosecutor Suzanne Vieux asked the judge to keep the bail at $500,000 because more charges are anticipated.

    Troconis’ bail also was kept at $500,000. Her attorney, Andrew Bowman, said she will post bail on Monday, but will have to wear a GPS monitor. Troconis, whose parents were in the court, did not speak during her appearance.

    (Published Monday, June 3, 2019)
    Later on that Friday, officers found Jennifer Dulos’ black SUV abandoned on Lapham Road by Waveny Park in New Canaan, around three miles from her home.

    On May 25, the day after Jennifer Dulos disappeared, investigators made brief contact with Fotis Dulos.

    “To date Dulos has declined to cooperate with the investigation,” court documents state.

    The two have been going through a divorce.

    In the initial 2017 affidavit, Jennifer Dulos wrote that she was “terrified for (her) family’s safety” and said her “husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior.”

    But in a court filing from his attorney, Fotis denied those allegations. And the day before being served with divorce papers in June of 2017, he called 911 with his own concerns.

    “I’m worried about my wife and kids because they left to go to New York and I haven’t been able to get in touch with them,” Fotis said in a 911 call.

    Jennifer moved from their shared home in Farmington to New Canaan around the same time she filed for divorce.

    The court documents released Monday also include details on where Fotis Dulos' cell phone and vehicle were believed to be after his estranged wife disappeared.

    They say his cellphone left his Farmington home on May 24 and travelled to the area of 80 Mountain Spring Road, where it remained from 1:37 p.m. until 3:38 p.m., then back to his Farmington home at 4:17 p.m.

    Fotis Dulos' cell phone returned to Mountain Spring Road at 5:21 p.m., then to his home at 5:34 p.m., court documents say.

    This past Sunday, Connecticut State Police were seen searching at a home on Mountain Spring Road in Farmington linked to the Fore Group, which Fotis Dulos owns, but they did not release details about if the search was connected to the missing person case.

    The arrest warrant application for Troconis says that around 7:10 p.m. on Friday, May 24, Fotis Dulos’ phone travelled to the area of Albany Avenue in the North End of Hartford and surveillance video showed him return home around 8:10 p.m.

    Investigators obtained surveillance camera footage from Hartford Police and video of a black Ford Raptor that matched characteristics of Fotis Dulos’ vehicle, court documents state. That truck stopped at more than 30 locations along a four-mile stretch of Albany Avenue, between Baltimore and Edward streets.

    The videos also show a man matching Fotis Dulos’ description place several garbage bags in various trash receptacles and some of the discarded items appeared to be stained with blood, according to details from the arrest warrant application.
    One video clip also showed a woman whose appearance was consistent with Troconis lean out of the passenger seat of the pickup and either put something on the ground or pick it up, according to police.

    Another video showed a man put something into a storm drain grate, the documents state.

    An item police removed a grate was a FedEx box containing two Connecticut license plates that had been altered and the actual plates were canceled on a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban owned by Dulos, according to police.

    While searching trash receptacles, police found garbage bags with clothing that appeared to be stained with blood, a kitchen sponge that had blood-like stains and other items, according to court documents.

    The items were sent to the state police lab for testing, which revealed that they found Jennifer Dulos’ blood, court documents state.

    Fotis Dulos and Troconis both appeared in court on Monday. Full court documents available by scrolling up and down.

    Scores of New Canaanites on Monday placed candles out front of their homes in a show of support and solidarity for Jennifer Dulos.

    An idea that gained momentum on social media, the candlelight effort came hours after the missing New Canaan woman’s estranged husband, and his girlfriend, were arraigned on felony charges in connection with her disappearance.

    Residents of Farmington planned Monday to place candles in front of their homes as well. Many of those sharing photos are using the hashtag #mondaycandlesforjennifer.

    Jennifer Dulos in filing two years ago for both divorce and emergency custody of her five children described her husband of 13 years as dangerous, and expressed fears for her own safety and for the kids.

    She has been missing since May 24.

    New Canaan has held at least two well-attended vigils for Jennifer Dulos, sending prayers for her safe return. Her family in a statement issued Friday through police acknowledged the local support.

    Local and state police are investigating her disappearance both as a missing person case and a criminal matter.

    Jennifer Dulos has not been found, police have said.

    On Monday, New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski issued a town-wide email and robocall saying that investigators are seeking video surveillance footage from homes or businesses with cameras that capture vehicular traffic. Those who have such video taken between May 22 and 25 are asked to save it and to contact New Canaan Police Officer Kelly Coughlin at Kelly.coughlin@newcanaanct.gov.

Monday, June 3, 2019. Fotis Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend, Michelle C. Troconis, 44, were arrested at an Avon hotel late Saturday night and held on a $500,000 bond for charges of tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and first-degree hindering prosecution.

    Should investigators come to believe the worst in the case of a missing New Canaan woman, prosecutors don’t necessarily need to produce a physical body in order to bring a murder charge, according to one prominent local legal expert.

    It’s a popular misconception that circumstantial evidence is weaker than direct evidence, according to New Canaan-based criminal defense attorney Matthew Maddox of The Maddox Law Firm LLC.

    Though it helps prosecutors to have the body of the deceased, Maddox said, circumstantial evidence is just as effective as direct evidence so long as its pieces are “linked to each other directly.”

    “When you have a strong chain of circumstantial evidence that is uninterrupted from start to finish, the state can certainly produce proof beyond a reasonable doubt,” Maddox said. “It is when the chain is frail or when and there is a break in the chain that the state has to explain away.”

    Jennifer Dulos, 50, went missing May 24. A multi-agency investigation has been active since that day, though authorities have not yet found the mom of five.

    They did, however, find evidence of a violent assault in her New Canaan home, and her blood was found on items that her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, 51, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, 44, are believed to have dumped around Hartford on the day she vanished. That evidence formed the basis of arrest warrant applications on charges of first-degree hindering prosecution and tampering with or fabricating physical evidence. The offenses carry maximum sentences of 10 and five years, respectively, under Connecticut law. New Canaan Police arrested the pair Saturday night.

    Fotis Dulos remained in police custody following his arraignment Monday at state Superior Court in Norwalk. Troconis was released on $500,000 bond and on condition that she surrender her passport and wear a GPS device—conditions that Fotis Dulos also would need to submit to in order to be released.

    New Canaan Police Chief Leon Krolikowski has said he expects additional criminal charges to be filed.

    According to Maddox, authorities in the Dulos-Troconis case are seeking to establish “as complete a narrative or as complete a track of his comings and goings on the day that Mrs. Dulos was missing, and thereafter, so that they can tell their story.”

    A New Canaan resident, Maddox added that Krolikowski’s request via town-wide email and robocall Monday night for residences and businesses to produce video footage around the time of the disappearance “is a very, very telling request, because they want to place him as best can at or near the scene of a crime.”

    “And they want to trace, from thereafter, what other conduct he engaged in that may be consistent with demonstrating that he had engaged in a crime connecting him between New Canaan and Hartford.”

    Jennifer Dulos hasn’t been seen since dropping her kids off at school on the morning of May 24. Police later that day found evidence of blood stains and spatter at her house, as well as an attempt to clean it up, that point to an unthinkable violent assault of the mother of Fotis Dulos’s own children. Phone location records and video surveillance images captured in the hours that followed point to an attempted coverup of astounding arrogance and stupidity.

    Police seized Fotis Dulos’s phone when he came to meet them at New Canaan Police headquarters on May 25. A forensic examination of the device showed that it traveled on the afternoon of May 24 to the major metropolitan area of Hartford. The city is full of surveillance cameras, some of which showed a man and woman, believed by police to be Fotis Dulos and Troconis, driving around in a black Ford pickup truck of the same make and model as a vehicle registered to Fotis Dulos’s home construction company, stopping 30 times to dump items into trash receptacles and storm drains. In one storm drain, police later found canceled license plates that had been registered to Fotis Dulos’s Ford Raptor, with the digits of the plate itself slightly altered with tape and adhesives.

    In his an affidavit on the arrest warrant applications, a state police detective noted only cellphone location data starting at 1:37 p.m. and afterwards. It isn’t clear whether police already have location data for Fotis Dulos’s cellphone for earlier in the day, or whether that data places the device in New Canaan. Jennifer Dulos had been renting a house off of Frogtown Road, and her car was found on Lapham Road just north of the Merritt Parkway overpass, by Waveny Park.

    It also isn’t clear what video surveillance investigators already possess showing either Jennifer Dulos’s SUV or a vehicle driven by her would-be attacker or attackers in New Canaan on the day of what police believe to be a “serious physical assault” in her home. Nor is it clear whether experts believe the blood stains and spatter in New Canaan, or blood-stained evidence gathered by police in the Hartford dump sites, amounts to a life-threatening loss of blood.

    The Duloses had been in a contentious custody dispute since Jennifer Dulos, after learning that her husband was having an affair with Troconis, filed for divorce in June 2017, according to Jennifer Dulos’s emergency application for sole custody, made at the same time. In her affidavit, Jennifer Dulos said her husband had exhibited “irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling behavior” and that she feared for her life. The last motion she filed in the divorce case accused him of filing a misleading financial affidavit with the court.

    Neither Fotis Dulos nor Troconis has pleaded. Their lawyers could not be reached for comment. They’re scheduled to appear June 11 in state Superior Court in Stamford.

    The case has riveted the nation and horrified the town.

    New Canaan has held two vigils since Jennifer Dulos was reported missing, and the community has also commenced quiet efforts to support her family. The kids are safe with relatives, police have said. Scores of New Canaanites on Monday night placed candles out front of their homes in a show of solidarity and support for Jennifer Dulos. On Tuesday, Jennifer Dulos’s mother, Gloria Farber, filed a motion for temporary custody of the children, court records show.

    Meanwhile, as federal, state and local law enforcement officials search the grounds of Waveny as part of their investigative work, TV people daily set up tripods and makeshift green screens in the former Lapham estate for live broadcasts and interviews with locals, in some cases asking park-goers whether they feel safe there.

    The mother of a missing New Canaan woman filed for custody of her five grandchildren, but there were no changes to custody during a status conference on Wednesday morning.

    Jennifer Dulos has been missing since May 24 and her mother, Gloria Farber, filed a motion in court for custody of the children on Tuesday, the day after Jennifer’s estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, appeared in court in connection with the missing person case. He remains in police custody, held on $500,000 bond.

    The attorneys for Farber, the children and Fotis Dulos appeared in court Wednesday for a status conference about custody and the judge made no major changes in the case but did reference an order barring Fotis Dulos from having contact with his children.

    The children have been staying with Farber in New York since their mother disappeared and their representative said Wednesday that the children “are safe” and with a family member.

    According to court documents, Jennifer Dulos and the children planned to be with Farber on May 24, the last day Jennifer Dulos was in touch with her children and family.

    Farber is asking for custody, at least on a temporary basis.

    The documents say she has a “close and substantial” as well as “parent-like relationship” with the children and argue that primary residence with their father would be “detrimental to the minor children.”

    Jennifer and Fotis Dulos have been going through a divorce since Jennifer filed in June 2017.

    In the initial 2017 affidavit, Jennifer Dulos wrote that she was “terrified for (her) family’s safety” and said her “husband has a history of controlling, volatile and delusional behavior.”

    But in a court filing from his attorney, Fotis denied those allegations. And the day before being served with divorce papers in June of 2017, he called 911 with his own concerns

    “I’m worried about my wife and kids because they left to go to New York and I haven’t been able to get in touch with them,” Fotis said in a 911 call. Jennifer moved from their shared home in Farmington to New Canaan around the same time she filed for divorce.

    The court documents Farber filed state that the children have resided primarily with their mother and the court issued a decision in March that the children’s father was allowed only supervised access to them.

    Farber is asking that the children remain with her while their father is incarcerated but said it would be detrimental to the children to leave her custody upon his release from police custody.

    “(E)ven if the defendant is released, on bond or otherwise, it would be detrimental to the children, particularly in the midst of the investigation into the disappearance of their mother, to be forced to leave

    Mrs. Farber’s custody and return to the defendant’s custody, with whom they have not resided for more than two years. …”

    Another hearing will be scheduled on custody of the children.

    Fotis Dulos, and his 44-year-old girlfriend, Michelle C. Troconis, have both been charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution in the first degree in connection to the missing person case. Both appeared in court on Monday, where bond was set at $500,000. Fotis remains in police custody while Troconis was released after posting bond.

    The charges were filed after police searched Jennifer Dulos' home and found blood in the garage as well as on a vehicle, according to arrest warrant applications.

    Arrest warrants released Monday also say that blood was found on clothing and other items dumped in several locations in Hartford where two people matching the description of her estranged husband and his girlfriend were recorded on video disposing of trash bags.

    The state lab determined that blood found was Jennifer Dulos’ according to court documents.
