After posting bail in connection with the disappearance of a missing Connecticut mother of five, the girlfriend of a that woman's estranged husband has met with detectives in her lawyer’s office.
Michelle Troconis, whose boyfriend Fotis Dulos is still jailed on $500,000 dollars, was spotted having a meeting with law enforcement Thursday at the office of her attorney Andrew Bowman.
The state’s attorney Richard Colangelo and four Connecticut State Police officers arrived at the Bowman's office that day, according to WLNY in New York. The police officers were spotted bringing in audio visual recording equipment which is typically used to record confessions, according to that outlet.
Bowman did not immediately return Oxygen.com’s request for comment. Colangelo has also not immediately returned any request for comment.
Troconis, 44, posted bail after her arraignment Monday. She and Fotis Dulos, 51, were charged Saturday night with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution. Neither entered pleas at Monday's hearing.
Fotis Dulos’ estranged wife Jennifer Dulos, 50, disappeared on May 24 after last being spotted in New Canaan, an affluent area of Connecticut, dropping her kids off at school. Two of her friends reported her missing after she didn't show for appointments and wasn't heard from for about 10 hours.
Fotis and Troconis, were allegedly seen on video disposing of garbage bags, some of which contained bloody clothing, in more than 30 trash receptacles. Additionally, police found blood spatter and evidence of cleanup attempts at Jennifer Dulos' New Canaan home, according to the arrest warrants.
And an unnamed neighbor of Fotis Dulos told the Stamford Advocate that a resident of his home woke up during the early morning hours of May 25 — one day after Jennifer vanished — after hearing loud banging sounds which prompted dogs in the area to begin barking.
Police began searching Fotis’ Farmington mansion Wednesday night after a warrant was executed, according to the Stamford Advocate. The home being searched is up for sale at $4.35 million and is reportedly still owned by Jennifer, local outlet The Hour reports.
State police announced they were going to have a press conference Thursday, but that was canceled, according to NBC Connecticut.
At least six police vehicles and K9s were reportedly spotted at the residence on Thursday morning.
The search warrant is being referred to as an emergency search warrant, a state police source told the Stamford Advocate. Another unnamed source told Radar Online that authorities have obtained “key pieces of evidence” which led them back to Fotis’ home.
During a status conference at Stamford Superior Court on Wednesday, Judge Donna Heller ordered Fotis to have no contact with the five children he shares with his estranged, missing wife. The couple had been married for 13 years and have five children who range in age from 8 to 13.
Jennifer filed for divorce from Fotis, who operates a construction business, in 2017. Jennifer moved out after finding out about the affair that her husband was having with Troconis, CNN reports.
Troconis worked as marketing director for Cerro Castor, an Argentinian ski resort, according to the Stamford Advocate. Jennifer had worries that the ski resort, which hosted the 2012 Freestyle Skiing World Cup, would be an escape route for her estranged husband.
“I am afraid of my husband,” Jennifer wrote in an affidavit tied to an order of custody filed in June 2017, according to the Stamford Advocate. “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.”
She also wrote in the same document what she was “afraid for my safety and the physical safety and emotional well-being of our minor children.”
