State Police Release Footage From Inside Hartford Trash Facility in Missing Mom Case

State police have released footage from inside a Hartford trash facility in the search for missing New Canaan mother of five Jennifer Dulos.

State police have been investigating for more than two weeks at a Hartford trash facility in connection with the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, who has been missing for nearly a month, and a police source said the search at that plant is winding down.

Investigators said they have a "good idea of what they're looking for and where it came from."

On Friday, police said the search at the Hartford facility should be "concluded in the very near future," but the exact ending date is not known.

“I think they would all agree that their efforts have been worth it,” Brian Foley, an aide to the commission of the state Department of Emergency Service and Public Protection, said Tuesday.

He declined to go into detail about the evidence that investigators might have gathered while sifting through piles of shredded garbage.

State Police troopers have worked in 12-hour shifts at the trash plant and one employee who witnessed the search describes investigators combing for clues through mountains of trash shredded into eight-inch pieces. State police said they are using cadaver dogs to search for a human odor in the pile.

Police are going through garbage that would have been collected along Albany Avenue in Hartford in the days after Jennifer Dulos disappeared.

Police first arrived at Material Innovation and Recycling Authority, a trash-to-energy plant in Hartford, in connection with the disappearance on Monday, June 3 and the search has continued in the weeks since.
