Jennifer Dulos

Socialite girlfriend of man whose wife is missing gives ‘confession’

The girlfriend of a Connecticut man whose wife is missing is cooperating with police and has reportedly made a “confession” to investigators, the Daily Mail reports.

On Thursday, Michelle Troconis, 44, reportedly met with authorities for several hours at her lawyer’s office in Westport.

Traconis is out on $500,000 bail after being charged with hindering evidence related to the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, 50, who was last seen May 24 dropping off her kids at school.

Her husband, Fotis Dulos, 51, remains jailed in lieu of $500,000 bail on charges of evidence tampering and hindering prosecution.

Traconis was observed Friday with investigators at a home that she had shared with Fotis Dulos, where police also were seen in the woods behind the residence, according to the Hartford Courant. She gave a videotaped interview, which her attorney, Ryan McGuigan, said indicated “that there was a confession and that she gave evidence as to what she saw, heard and did.”

The case is not officially a homicide investigation because authorities don’t know if Jennifer Dulos is still living or dead.

Police have also reportedly looked through garbage bins in their hunt for clues.

Investigators have spent days exhaustively searching properties linked to The Fore Group, a home building company that Fotis Dulos owns.

Evidence obtained by Harford police shows that someone who looks similar to Fotus Dulos was dumping garbage bags – as many as 30 – in trash receptacles on the evening his wife went missing, according to court records obtained by the Hartford Courant.

A woman who looks similar to Troconis can also been seen in the images sitting in a passenger seat as Dulos discards the bags, some of which police have recovered.

A neighbor of one Dulos property reported hearing loud metal banging in early morning of May 25, one day after Jennifer Dulos disappeared. Authorities have been seen at the site repeatedly.

A metal dumpster at a separate property has also reportedly been the subject of a police search.

According to Fotis Dulos’ arrest warrant, investigators have recovered numerous pieces of evidence that correspond to the garbage bag dump locations captured by surveillance cameras. The state’s crime lab found that these items contained Jennifer Dulos’ blood.

“Based on the crime scene processing, investigators came to the consensus that a serious physical assault had occurred at the scene, and Jennifer Dulos was the suspected victim,” the warrant reportedly states.

Her blood was also on clothes and kitchen sponges that were found near the dump sites, court records state.

Documents show Jennifer and Fotis Dulos argued over who would have custody of their children and allegedly threatened to harm one another during two years of divorce proceedings.

A grandmother is caring for the couple’s five kids.

In a court record, Jennifer also expressed fear that Fotis would harm her and indicated that he had a gun.

Fotis sought custody of the children, whom he could see every other weekend, after Jennifer went missing.

Cell phone data show that on the day Jennifer vanished, he went from his residence to one of his business’ properties multiple times between 1:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Police then tracked the phone to the dump sites where bloodied evidence was found.
