Jennifer Dulos case: Timeline of Connecticut mother’s disappearance, death

Fox News Digital details a timeline of events between the day Connecticut mom Jennifer Dulos disappeared in 2019 and the day suspect Michelle Troconis appears in court.

Jennifer Dulos, a 50-year-old Connecticut mother of five, disappeared May 24, 2019, and her remains have yet to be recovered.

Dulos’ estranged 52-year-old husband, Fotis Dulos, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were charged in her death in 2019. Fotis died by suicide shortly after he was charged, and Troconis’ criminal trial begins Thursday.

“It has been more than four years and seven months since Jennifer Farber Dulos was murdered and disappeared,” Jennifer’s family said in a statement Wednesday, according to FOX 61. “We, her family and friends, have waited patiently, understanding that the justice process moves slowly and deliberatively [sic], especially given the disruption of a global pandemic. 


“We remain deeply grateful to the state’s attorney’s office, the Connecticut State Police and the New Canaan Police for their tireless dedication to this case and the related, ongoing criminal investigation.”

The statement added that as Troconis’ trial begins, “it is crucial to remember who is at the center: Jennifer, whose five children have lost their mother and, as an eventuality, both parents.”

Troconis, now 47, has pleaded not guilty and has insisted she did not know what was going on when Fotis disposed of various garbage bags from his truck with Troconis in the vehicle after Jennifer disappeared. She also claims she does not know anything about a written timeline of their activity that day that police obtained as evidence.

Affidavits allege Fotis was about $7 million in debt by 2019.

“Michelle is an amazing woman, mother, daughter, sister, and friend, who has been treated unfairly, contrary to what the American Justice System is supposed to be about: ‘With freedom and justice for all!’” her family wrote. “Michelle has been treated as if she were guilty from day one, with police, investigators, the media, and members of the public ignoring the presumption of innocence that the United States Constitution claims to offer to all its citizens.” 

They added that the New Canaan Police and Connecticut State Police conducted their investigations “with predetermined assumptions and unsupported conclusions.”
