The Dulos Case

BRONX, N.Y. (WTNH) — In a new statement released Monday, a spokesperson for the family of missing mother Jennifer Farber Dulos said the five Dulos children did get to say goodbye to their father, Fotis Dulos, before he was pulled off life support almost three weeks ago.

Dulos, the main suspect in his estranged wife’s disappearance, kidnapping, and murder, died Jan. 30 at a Bronx hospital, two days after an apparent suicide at his Farmington home.

As previously reported by News 8, Dulos’ sister, Rena Dulos, and other family members from Greece flew to New York City to say their goodbyes to Fotis at the Jacobi Medical Center in his final days as he was kept alive on life support.

In a statement Monday, it was revealed that Jennifer and Fotis’ five children – who had been residing with their grandmother, Gloria Farber, in New York City during the investigation into the disappearance of their mother – were able to see their father in the hospital to say their own goodbyes.

“Five children have lost both parents in the span of eight months. Our top priorities are ensuring their wellbeing and protecting their privacy. Understandably, they wished to say goodbye to their father, which we arranged with the assistance of hospital personnel.

Tragically, the children have not been — and may never be — able to say goodbye to their mother, Jennifer, who remains missing.”
