According to Lt. Tim Mackenzie with the Farmington Police Department, Fotis Dulos is at the UConn Health Center in critical condition, following an attempted suicide inside his Farmington, Connecticut, home.
Dulos, who has been accused of kidnapping and murdering his estranged wife, Jennifer Dulos, was found inside his garage in a running car, in clear medical distress.
After multiple outlets reported Fotis Dulos had died, his attorney Norm Pattis released a statement saying, “I am told he is en route to the hospital with a pulse. Our thoughts and prayers are with him.”
This is a breaking news story and will be updated.
The estranged husband of Connecticut mother, Jennifer Dulos, who has been missing since May and presumed dead, has reportedly taken his own life.
According to FOX 61, Dulos’ lawyer, Rich Rochlin, confirmed that Dulos has passed away. First responders reportedly found Dulos inside his running car, inside his garage.
The Hartford Courant reports, however, that Dulos’ other attorney, Norm Pattis, indicated that Dulos had a faint pulse while on his way to the hospital.
“This is a shocking and truly sad day,” Pattis said. “My heart goes out to his children and his family. It’s just a horrible day.”
Dulos was out of jail on a $6 million bond and was awaiting trial while on house arrest.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Dulos is accused of kidnapping and murdering Jennifer Dulos, who disappeared on May 24 after dropping their five children off at school.
Investigators accused Dulos of “lying in wait” for Jennifer to come home on the morning she vanished. Security footage captured her walking into her New Canaan home at around 8:30 a.m. Authorities noted that Jennifer’s SUV left her residence at some point on May 24, but they think Fotis Dulos was behind the wheel.
The pair were in the process of a tumultuous divorce and a bitter battle for custody of their children when Jennifer disappeared. The children are now living in New York with Jennifer’s mother.
