What to Know About the Girlfriend Suspected in Disappearance of Missing Mom Jennifer Dulos
Michelle Troconis was arrested Saturday together with Jennifer Dulos' estranged husband, Fotis Dulos.
Police are reportedly hoping the girlfriend of a man suspected in his estranged wife's disappearance will help them figure out what happened to her.
Michelle Troconis was arrested Saturday together with Fotis Dulos. Both are suspected in the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, a Connecticut mother of five who was in the midst of a nasty divorce with Fotis.
Jennifer was last seen on May 24. She dropped her kids off at school but then didn’t show up for multiple appointments she had that day, the New Canaan Police Department said.
Fotis and his girlfriend, Troconis, are charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution in the first degree. They made their first court appearances Monday.
Before Troconis made bail, the two were being held at different locations, reportedly in the hopes that Troconis will be more forthcoming to cops.
Fotis is a luxury homes builder, while Troconis describes herself as a corporate events coordinator. She also once hosted a show called "Snow Time" on ESPN and helped launch a world-famous ski resort in Argentina.
A photo shows the pair at a construction industry awards ceremony last year.
Fotis and Jennifer have been involved in a bitter divorce for the past two years. Their five children, who range in age from 8 to 13, are all currently staying with Jennifer's mother in New York City, where they are reportedly being protected by an armed guard.
In court papers, Jennifer referred to Troconis as her husband's "paramour" and claimed he wanted her to move into the "marital home."
"When I disagreed, he became enraged," she claimed in the papers.
She also told a judge she feared her estranged husband would kidnap her children or kill her. Fotis refuted her allegations, saying there is "no reason" for Jennifer or anyone else to fear he "will harm her in any way."
Police said they are treating Jennifer's disappearance as a homicide after finding blood at her Connecticut home. Authorities were seen searching a storm drain after a report that a man was seen stuffing something into it. Police are trying to determine if it was Dulos.
Police said in court papers the husband and girlfriend stopped at least 30 times to drop bloodstained clothing and a kitchen sponge.
