Sources: State police to end search for evidence on Jennifer Dulos case in Hartford trash plant


State police are expected to end their search in a Hartford Trash Facility for any key evidence in the search in the case of the missing New Canaan mother Jennifer Farber Dulos

Law enforcement sources close to the investigation tell News 8 that they plan to wrap up the search at the trash facility this coming weekend. They have found no significant evidence at that facility related to the case.

There’s a reason why so much time has been spent here at this trash facility. You may recall that police accused Jennifer’s estranged husband Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend Michelle Troconis of dumping trash bags into dumpsters along Labany Avenue in Hartford

Those bags contained Jennifer’s blood. Attorneys for both Dulos and Troconis say their clients are innocent and have alibis from the day Jennifer went missing which was back on May 24th. 

She dropped her kids off a school that day, and was then reported missing that evening. 

Police found blood stains and splatter inside her home and believe she was the victim of a violent attack.

Her car was then found parked near Waveny Park. Since then the search has taken police to New Canaan, Farmington, Avon, Hartford, and Pound Ridge, New York.

Both Fotis Dulos, Jennifer’s estranged husband, and Fotis’s girlfriend Michelle Troconis are free after posting bond. They were charged with tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution. Troconis is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on July 18, and Fotis’s next court date is August 2.

Jennifer and Fotis were going through a bitter divorce. In fact, Thursday is two years to the date that Jennifer filed for divorce, moving out of what was the family home in Farmington and relocating with the kids to New Canaan. 

Police continue to ask for the public’s help as they try to figure out what happened to Jennifer Dulos. 

The New Canaan Police Department has created a website,, and a dedicated email address, If you have any information at all, no matter how small, please email or call the New Canaan Police tip line at (203) 594-3544.
