Update: As Police Continue Their Search, New Details of Jennifer Dulos’s Disappearance Are Released

It has been three weeks since Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos was last seen alive. New information about the case has emerged raising more questions about her disappearance.

This comes after Dulos’s estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were charged with tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution. Both have pleaded not guilty to the charges.

On May 24, the day Jennifer, 50, went missing, an employee of Fotis’s construction company was apparently driving the company’s black Ford F-150 Raptor in the Dulos’s town of New Canaan, law enforcement sources told the Hartford Courant. He was apparently working on a home the company was building. Meanwhile, Fotis was driving the employee’s truck that day.

Later that day, the employee returned Fotis’s truck to him at his employers Farmington home, Courant reported.

Investigators have seized the truck, phone, and computer of the employee, who has not been identified or charged as a suspect, in connection with Dulos’s disappearance.

Police said later that day Fotis and Troconis were allegedly seen disposing of two garbage bags filled with bloody clothes, towels, and sponges. Courant reported that the blood on the items seized from the garbage cans matched Dulos’s.

Moreover, the pair allegedly attempted to get rid of license plates that had been partially taped by throwing them in a storm drain, reported the newspaper, citing an arrest warrant. The licence plates belonged to a vehicle Fotis used to own in 2017.

According to WTNH8, authorities have gone back to a trash facility on June 14 to search for evidence.

The defense attorney for Fotis, Norm Pattis, claimed to WPLR that Troconis has been ruled out as a suspect in the case as she had passed a polygraph test claiming she did not know what was in the bags when she helped her boyfriend dispose of them and has an alibi for when Jennifer had disappeared.

“My understanding is … the police have ruled her out as a participant in any foul play in New Canaan,” Pattis said.

“My understanding is she’s taken a polygraph exam on the question of whether she had any knowledge of any foul play or disposal of evidence and she satisfied police in that polygraph exam and she provided an alibi,” he added.

Troconis had been out on bail since her initial court appearance, while Fotis posted a $500,000 bond on June 11, reported the Courant.

The Connecticut mom was last seen driving a 2017 black Chevrolet Suburban in New Canaan, which had been located by police on the same day she went missing. She was allegedly embroiled in a custody battle with Fotis, who she was married to for 13 years.

The couple had five children, aged between 8 and 13, including two sets of twins. Documents reviewed by Fox 61 showed that Jennifer filed for divorce in 2017.
