Updated at 3:14 p.m. ET with reports on Dulos' condition. 


Fotis Dulos, the man accused of killing his estranged wife Jennifer Farber Dulos, was found unresponsive at his Connecticut mansion Tuesday and was rushed to the hospital amid reports of an attempted suicide.

There had been conflicting reports Tuesday afternoon as to whether Dulos was still alive, however Norm Pattis, Dulos’ lawyer, told Oxygen.com in a statement that "Mr. Dulos is en route to the hospital with a pulse. Our thoughts and prayers are with him."

That statement was issued shortly after 1 p.m.

By a little after 3 p.m., NBC Connecticut and other local outlets were reporting that Dulos was hospitalized in critical condition. 

Dulos was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday for an emergency hearing related to his $6 million bond but after he was a no-show, police went to his home and found him unresponsive. Another lawyer representing Dulos, Rich Rochlin, told NBC News that he attempted suicide.

The 52-year-old was arrested on murder and kidnapping charges earlier this month in connection with what authorities say was the killing of Jennifer Dulos. Jennifer has not been seen since she dropped her children off at school on May 24 and is presumed dead. Fotis Dulos has long denied any involvement in Jennifer's disappearance or death.

Just last week, he was placed under strict house arrest after taking items from a memorial dedicated to his missing wife, which was erected on the edge of his property. 

Michelle Troconis, Dulos' (possibly former) girlfriend, and his former civil lawyer Kent Douglas Mawhinney have both been charged with conspiracy to commit murder in Jennifer Dulos' disappearance.
