What to Know
Fotis Dulos is the estranged husband of Jennifer Dulos, who has been missing since May 24. Police do not believe she's alive.
The couple was in the midst of a divorce and custody battle at the time of Jennifer's disappearance.
Fotis is facing criminal charges in her disappearance and a civil case from his father-in-law's estate.
The Farmington mansion Fotis Dulos, the estranged husband of missing New Canaan mother Jennifer Dulos, calls home is no longer on the market.
“Mr. Dulos sent us an email that said hey I want to cancel the listing and we were fine with doing that but we wanted to make sure the interest of Mrs. Dulos were protected,” Tea Leaf Realty Managing Broker Rob Giuffria said.
Giuffria says he took the $4.35 million property off the market Thursday per Dulos’ request and after a deposition with the attorney for the estate of Jennifer’s late father Hilliard Farber. Giuffria says Dulos didn’t specify why he no longer wanted the home listed for sale.
“No specific reasons, the only thing that I can assume is when a property is in foreclosure there’s different things that a seller might try to do with the property,” Giuffria said.
Last week, Farber’s estate, filed a lawsuit against Dulos for foreclosure on the home. According to court documents, the estate has been paying the property’s mortgage since October of last year, the same month Dulos listed the house on the market with Tea Leaf Realty.
Giuffria says Dulos built the house as a showcase home, a home builders create, live in, show off their work to potential customers and eventually sell. Giuffria says initially the listing had interest from potential buyers but slowed down after Jennifer’s disappearance.
“I think Mr. Dulos is a good builder and he builds a great product and unfortunately there’s a cloud over him now and his company and I’m not sure how that’s going to turn out,” Giuffria said.
Dulos is often seen running outside the Farmington home wearing his court-mandated GPS monitor. That system now at the center of Dulos’ latest court appearance set for Monday. His attorney Norm Pattis saying in a statement,
“Apparently a man presumed innocent needs the battery on his GPS monitor adjusted. We expect no drama and no controversy.”
Dulos has pleaded not guilty to the criminal charges he faces in connection with Jennifer’s disappearance.
