New details unearthed in police report of Fotis Dulos’ attempted suicide

The Dulos Case

FARMINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Farmington police have released the report regarding the attempted suicide of Fotis Dulos, the man charged in the murder of his estranged wife Jennifer Farber Dulos.

The 19-page police report stems from Jan. 28, 2020 when Dulos reportedly tried to take his own life in his Farmington home by carbon monoxide poisoning.

At the time of his death, Dulos was on house arrest after being charged for capital murder in the death of Jennifer, who has been missing since May 24, 2019.

According to newly released court documents and witness interviews, no one had any idea Dulos was thinking about suicide.

He met with his attorneys the day before his bail hearing, and they said he gave no indication that he was feeling depressed.

At 10:55 a.m. on Jan. 28, about an hour before his previously scheduled bond hearing, one of his attorneys, Kevin Smith, talked to Dulos asking where he was. It was just minutes before the suicide attempt.

Smith said of the call, “Fotis gave no indication that he was about to try and take his own life.”

An hour went and Dulos didn’t show up in court. His defense team starts calling around. The case report states they reached out to Anna Curry, who told police she was Dulos’ girlfriend at the time.

His lawyers told her that the GPS tracker on his ankle showed Dulos was still at the house in Farmington.

The documents said of Curry, “at that moment she knew that Fotis must have done something to harm himself” and that she told Smith “to call 911 to get an ambulance for Fotis, but that Smith refused. She went on to say Smith said that he didn’t want to cause more problems for Fotis in case Fotis had removed the GPS device.”

News 8 reached out to Dulos’ lead attorney, Norm Pattis, and his legal team about these allegations, and they have yet to respond. However, the Hartford Courant reported Pattis said the exchange between Curry and Smith never happened.

Dulos was found unresponsive by first responders in his car in the garage of his Jefferson Crossing home. He was treated at UConn Medical Center with a pulse, then flown by Lifestar to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx for treatment in a hyperbaric chamber. He was pronounced dead on Jan. 30.

A note was found next to Dulos in the car at the time he was found. In it, he claimed he had nothing to do with Jennifer’s death or disappearance.

The new report stated, “There were multiple photographs of Fotis and his children found on the center console and in the right front passenger compartment. There was an empty, uncapped bottle of Tylenol PM and two rolls of duct tape on the front passenger seat.”

About an hour after his death on Jan. 30, Pattis said Dulos’ attempt to take his own life was not an admission of guilt.

“To those who contend that Mr. Dulos’ death reflects a consciousness of guilt, we say no. We say it was more a conscience overborne with the weight of a world that was too busy to listen and that wanted a story more than it wanted the truth.”
