NEW CANAAN, Conn. (WTNH) — Jennifer Farber Dulos, a New Canaan mother of five, disappeared on May 24, 2019, after dropping her children off at school.
Although her body has never been found, authorities believe Farber Dulos was killed by her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos. He was charged with her murder in January 2020 and died by suicide a few weeks later.
Two others charged in the case — Kent Mawhinney and Michelle Troconis — are still awaiting trial. Mawhinney, a former attorney and friend of Fotis Dulos’, and Troconis, Fotis Dulos’ ex-girlfriend, have pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder.
“Due to ongoing criminal prosecution related to this investigation and at the request of the State’s Attorney, our agency will not be issuing any statements at this time,” state police wrote in a statement to News 8.
Carrie Luft issued a statement Wednesday on behalf of the family and friends of Farber Dulos.
“May 24, 2023, marks four years since the murder and disappearance of Jennifer Farber Dulos. We continue to grieve the loss of her loving devotion to her children and family, her friendship, courage, brilliance, humor, and singular ability to touch the lives of the people she encountered.
The investigation into Jennifer’s case is open and active, and the Connecticut state’s attorney’s office continues with pretrial discovery and preparation. Two individuals have yet to stand trial for conspiracy to murder, and we await the next steps in the legal process.
Intimate partner violence cuts across gender, economic, and racial/ethnic lines, and it disproportionately affects women of color. In Jennifer’s honor, we wish to turn the public’s attention to the many victims and survivors of intimate partner violence whose stories do not receive widespread media coverage. You can help change this disparity by donating to the Black and Missing Foundation, and by encouraging the media to give equal attention to all victims. Thank you.”
