FARMINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — Police were called to the Farmington residence of Fotis Dulos on Thursday afternoon. Sources told News 8 that Dulos’ family was trying to remove items from the residence.
News 8 crews arrived to the house and saw his family on scene. Movers were also seen carrying items back into the home.
The Superior Court of Hartford issued a motion on Thursday precluding any personal property from being removed from the home. In the motion, the court stated:
“At this point, the issue exists as to the contents of that house and the rights to that personal property. There has been no inventory made of the house. There needs to be an exercise of control of the disposition of the personal property for the benefit of the Fotis Dulos Estate and the plaintiff. “Motion filed by Superior Court of Hartford
Upon his client’s death, attorney Norm Pattis said Dulos’ legal team has filed a “motion to substitute an estate for Fotis Dulos for him as a defendant to force the state to show its hand in a trial filled with evidence we think that amounts to no more than innuendo and unsupported suspicion.”
Dulos died on Jan. 30, after being found unresponsive after an apparent suicide attempt two days before inside the garage of the property at 4 Jefferson Crossing. His family had been staying in the house since his death.
Dulos’ former girlfriend Michelle Troconis is scheduled to appear in Stamford Superior Court on Friday. Troconis faces conspiracy to commit murder charges in the case related to Dulos’ estranged wife Jennifer Dulos. Troconis changed her legal team in the case this week.
“I can tell you we’re going to be a little bit more aggressive,” said her new attorney, Jon Schoenhorn. “I believe it’s clear from my motions that Michelle Troconis is innocent of these charges.”
He replaced her former attorney, Andrew Bowman.
With Dulos’ death, Schoenhorn said he’s worried the state is making Troconis the scapegoat.
“There’s an investigation they need a scapegoat or someone to blame, and I think just based on what I’ve read that’s going to now be placed on Ms. Troconis…All I can tell you is based on the arrest warrants, I have not seen anything that suggests that the DNA — which is we’re talking about skin, we’re talking about skin cells of Michelle Troconis — was found anywhere near any of the DNA which is alleged to belong to Jennifer Farber Dulos.”
