Troopers had previously been at the property as part of the case. State police brought in several K9s to help search the property.

"J4J" meaning "Justice for Jennifer" could be seen spray pained throughout the Sky View Drive property. The owner of the home, which is now vacant, believes it was spray painted around the one year anniversary of Dulos' disappearance.

A septic company was brought in to pump the property's septic tank.

At least a dozen state police vehicles were seen arriving at the home by an NBC Connecticut crew.

Jennifer Dulos has now been missing more than a year, vanishing after dropping her kids off at school and the search for her continues.

Fotis Dulos maintained his innocence until his passing earlier this year. He died after attempting to take his own life.
