Legal Expert Analyzes Jennifer Dulos Investigation

What to Know

  • Jennifer Dulos has been missing since she dropped her children off at school on May 24, 2019.
  • Her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, have been arrested in connection with the case.
  • Court documents state police found blood in Jennifer Dulos' home and said she may be the victim of a "serious physical assault."

Two weeks after she dropped her five children off at New Canaan Country school, 50-year-old Jennifer Dulos is still missing and the search to find her continues.

“They very much want to do that for a whole lot of reasons both legally and morally and emotionally for the family," Attorney John Williams said of efforts to find the missing mother. "Will that happen, I don’t know.”

A longtime criminal defense attorney based in New Haven, Williams closely reviewed key court documents from the investigation. He is not involved with this case that's gained national attention.

“This is an exceptional example of all of the stands of modern forensic criminology coming together,” Williams said.

Williams is referencing the surveillance video from Albany Avenue in Hartford and cell phone tracking from that led to New Canaan Police to charge Jennifer's estranged husband Fotis Dulos and girlfriend Michelle Troconis with evidence tampering and hindering prosecution.

“The one thing I hadn’t picked up from the news reports was that he voluntarily turned over his cell phone in the presence of his lawyer," Williams said, "which is not the usual procedure.”

NBC News confirmed Friday that Troconis and her attorney Andrew Bowman met Thursday with investigators.

“I think the prosecutors really, really need her cooperation," Williams said of Troconis, "I think it would be very valuable to them if they can get it.”

NBC Connecticut ended the interview with Williams by asking, if there is a chance these cases could be tried outside of Fairfield County.

"Is there any place in Connecticut where people haven’t formed opinions about this case?" Williams said. "I don’t think so.”

Next Tuesday morning, all eyes on Stamford Superior Court where Dulos and Troconis will next face a judge. Dulos has yet to post his bond, while a judge required Troconis wear a GPS monitor on her ankle as a condition of release Monday.
