Jennifer Dulos (née Farber; born September 27, 1968) is an American who disappeared on May 24, 2019. Authorities suspect she was killed in a violent attack on her home in New Canaan, Connecticut. Her husband, Fortis Dulos, and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were arrested on suspicion of tampering with evidence and obstructing prosecutions related to Jennifer’s disappearance. The pair later – along with Fotis’ lawyer Kent Mawhinney – faced further charges related to Jennifer’s murder. Fortis committed suicide in January 2020.
Jennifer and Fortis find themselves embroiled in contentious divorce and custody proceedings. Police suspect Fotis ambushed and attacked Jennifer when she arrived home from school with her children. On the night Jennifer disappeared, he and Troconis drove to Hartford to dispose of garbage bags containing Jennifer’s blood, police said. Police further charged Mawhinney with conspiracy with Fotis and Troconis.
Jennifer Farber Dulos (born September 27, 1968) was born in New York City to bankers and philanthropists Gloria Ortenberg and Hilliard Farber. She has an older sister, Melissa Erin Farber. Jennifer’s aunt and uncle Elizabeth Claiborne and Arthur Altenberg founded the fashion company Liz Claiborne Inc. Jennifer graduated from Brown University in 1990 and later received an MA in Writing from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Jennifer is a stay-at-home mom who makes a living as a writer for Patch.com and runs her own blog.
Fotis Dulos was born in Turkey, grew up in Athens, Greece, and moved to the United States in 1986. He graduated from Brown University in 1989 and later received an MBA in Finance from Columbia Business School.
Fortis married Hilary Vanessa Aldama, also a Brown University graduate, in Athens in June 2000. The marriage lasted four years and they divorced on July 12, 2004. That year, Dulos founded Fore Group Inc. in Connecticut, a real estate development company specializing in luxury home development.
Dulos started emailing Farber, who also met Brown when he was with his first wife. They married in Manhattan on August 28, 2004, just over a month after the Dulos divorced, before moving to Farmington, Connecticut.
They have five children together, including two sets of twins, named after Greek Orthodox saints – three sons: Petros, Theodore and Constantine; and two daughters: Christiane and Cleopatra Noelle.
