Police: Missing Connecticut Mom’s Estranged Husband Arrested Again
According to the Connecticut State Police, detectives from the State Police Western District Major Crime Squad arrested Dulos at his home early Wednesday afternoon (September 4) in connection to the disappearance of the mother of five.
While police have yet to release any further information and say that a formal press release containing the criminal charges and more will be soon released, Fox 61 reports that Fotis' new charges could potentially be related to more counts of evidence tampering.
Before his arrest this afternoon, Fotis Dulos was free on bond after he and his girlfriend Michelle Troconis were accused of evidence tampering.
As previously reported, police say that they've located some items of clothing and sponges that are believed to be soaked in the blood of 50-year-old Jennifer Dulos, a Connecticut woman whose disappearance has gathered attention from media outlets across the county. The bloody clothing was reportedly found in trash receptacles in Hartford.
In what police are describing as related evidence, the Hartford Courant reports that phone records for Fotis Dulos show that he was in fact in the same areas as the Hartford trash cans on the very night Jennifer Dulos disappeared.
Also, police say that surveillance footage they obtained from the same Hartford area in question show a Ford Raptor truck stopping at many locations over the course of a large stretch of Albany Avenue. In the footage, a white male was reportedly seen placing items into trash cans, and in one specific clip, a white female was reportedly seen leaning out of the side of the Ford. The male, the female and the truck itself all match the respective descriptions of Fotis Dulos, his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, who was also arrested on tampering charges, and the Ford Raptor that belongs to Dulos.
All of that reported evidence comes just a short time after investigators determined that some sort of physical altercation had occurred inside of Jennifer Dulos' New Canaan home. Police say they found blood stains, blood spatter and evidence that coincides with an attempt to clean up a crime scene.
Currently, Jennifer Dulos' disappearance is still being treated as a missing persons case.
