Police Search Park Near Where Jennifer Dulos' SUV Was Found As Two-Year Effort To Find Her Body Continues
Jennifer Dulos' husband Fotis Dulos was charged with her murder but died by suicide while under home confinement.
Police in Connecticut searched a park this week not far from where the SUV of missing mother of five Jennifer Dulos was found more than two years ago in the continued efforts to locate her body.
A public information officer for the Connecticut State Police told Oxygen.com in a statement via email on Tuesday that they “followed up on previous investigative information pertaining to the Jennifer Dulos homicide investigation” and that “detectives conducted a search in the area of Waveny Park in New Canaan” on Monday.
“This was done out of an abundance of caution to explore every avenue related to the case,” they stated. “These follow-ups are standard procedure as our detectives thoroughly investigate any and all leads.”
Police said Monday’s search of the park “has concluded” and that their office “has not been advised of any additional scheduled searches at this time.”
The spokesperson told Oxygen.com that they do not have any information to share regarding what, if anything, was found at the park.
Dulos’ 2017 Chevy Suburban was found near that same park after she was reported missing, NBC Connecticut reports.
The mother of five vanished in May 2019 amid a contentious divorce and child custody battle with her estranged husband Fotis Dulos. Fotis was brought up on capital murder, murder, and kidnapping charges in early January 2020 before he died by suicide while under home confinement.
Investigators believe that Fotis was “lying in wait” for Jennifer at her home before he killed her in her garage, according to an arrest warrant. Jennifer’s body has never been found. Authorities have alleged Fotis had co-conspirators — his then-girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, and former civil lawyer Kent Douglas Mawhinney — who were both charged with conspiracy to commit murder. They've each have pleaded not guilty.
Troconis has been released from custody and her next court date is scheduled for Feb. 15. Mawhinney has also been released and is due in court on Jan. 18.
The high-profile case, and Fotis’ bizarre theory that Jennifer staged her own disappearance captured the attention of the nation and inspired a recent Lifetime movie entitled “Gone Mom.”
