Husband of missing Connecticut mom’s NEW claim: Bill shows Jennifer Dulos got medical treatment after disappearing

An attorney for the estranged husband of Jennifer Dulos claims that the missing woman sought medical care after she vanished from her Connecticut home in May, but her family says no way.

The Stamford Advocate reports that on Friday, defense lawyer Norm Pattis, who represents Jennifer’s estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, filed a motion at Stamford Superior Court and claimed that the missing woman sought medical treatment two months after she disappeared.

Pattis reportedly provided a medical bill that indicated Jennifer received “reproductive” services on July 7, at a medical facility in New York.

“If Ms. Dulos did, as the bill suggests, receive medical services on July 7, 2019, she is obviously alive, if not necessarily well,” Pattis wrote, according to The Hour.

Pattis filed the motion in a second attempt to get access to Jennifer’s medical records.  Pattis first attempted to gain access to the missing mom’s medical records in August, but Stamford Superior Court Judge John Blawie denied the request.

Carrie Luft, a spokesperson for Jennifer’s family, explained that the medical bill is sent out quarterly and has nothing to do with someone actually showing up to receive medical services on the date of the bill.

“The insurance claim in question, dated July 7, 2019, is for an auto-billed quarterly fee with no connection to in-person services — the Anthem claims summary in Mr. Dulos’s possession lists this same charge every three months. To allege that Jennifer obtained medical treatment in July is absurd. To allege that Jennifer — together with her family — orchestrated her own disappearance is baseless and cruel.”

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jennifer was last seen at around 8 a.m. on May 24 while dropping her children off at the New Canaan Country School in the prominent New Canaan community in Connecticut.

Police later found her vehicle, a black 2017 Chevrolet Suburban, parked off of Lapham Road. Jennifer was nowhere to be found. A cleaning service arrived at her home at noon on Friday but Jennifer was not there.

Jennifer also missed several appointments that day, including one at 11 a.m. and one at 1 p.m. Since she vanished, she has not used her cellphone or her credit cards.

Search dogs and search teams scoured through wooded areas by Jennifer’s home, as well as a 300-acre park, bodies of water and a cornfield. Authorities also spent days searching at a large dump facility and scouring Fotis Dulos’ property in Farmington.

Both Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis were arrested in June after authorities said the pair tampered with evidence in connection to Jennifer’s disappearance. According to the arrest affidavit, investigators found, in part:

  • Bags of blood-stained clothing and sponges that Dulos allegedly dropped into trash cans at businesses in Connecticut
  • Stains of blood on Jennifer’s garage floor
  • Blood spatter in numerous areas of Jennifer’s home
  • Dulos’ DNA mixed in with Jennifer’s blood on her kitchen faucet
  • Obvious attempts to clean up the scene
  • Altered Connecticut license plates that belonged to Dulos
  • Security footage of Dulos driving his Ford pickup to various locations, dropping trash bags into different public trash receptacles
  • Security footage of Troconis “leaning out of the passenger seat of the Ford pickup and either placing something on the ground or picking up an item”
  • Blood DNA that matched to Jennifer inside Gummienny’s truck

Both Dulos and Troconis bailed out of jail, but both were arrested again in September on additional tampering with evidence charges after Troconis reportedly turned on Dulos and admitted she lied about seeing him on the morning Jennifer vanished.

Troconis told detectives that she did not know where Dulos on the morning of May 24, between 6:30 a.m. until 1:30 p.m, taking back her original claim that she was with him.

Authorities believe a “serious physical assault” happened to Jennifer, and the “the crime and the cleanup are believed to have occurred between 8:05 a.m. and 10:25 a.m.” on May 24.

Trocinis also said that Dulos borrowed a truck from his friend, Pawel Gummienny, around the time Jennifer vanished, according to court documents. Troconis said Dulos later had the truck detailed and washed.

When detectives asked her why the truck was cleaned, Jennifer allegedly referenced to blood inside the vehicle.

“You showed me the picture of the blood in the door. It’s because the body of Jennifer at some point was in there.”

The arrest warrant stated Dulos later offered replacement rear truck seats to Gummienny. The owner of the truck reportedly told police that Dulos instructed him to get rid of the old seats “so they would not be found.”

Gummienny claimed he held onto the old seats, in the event authorities asked for them.

Investigators obtained the old seats from Gummienny and performed a swab test on a “blood-like substance,” which matched Jennifer’s DNA. Further, investigators accused Dulos of “lying in wait” for Jennifer to come home on May 24, when security footage captured her walking into her home at around 8:30 a.m.

Investigators noted that Jennifer’s SUV left her residence at some point on May 24, but they think Fotis Dulos was behind the wheel.
