Fotis Dulos, 52, is in critical condition at UConn Health Center in Farmington, Connecticut and is being treated for carbon monoxide poisoning, Farmington Police Lt. Tim McKenzie said. He is being transported from UConn Health to Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, New York, a law enforcement source told CNN.
McKenzie said officers conducted a well-being check at his house on Tuesday just before noon after Dulos did not appear in court for an emergency bond hearing. Upon arrival, officers saw Dulos sitting in his vehicle in the house’s garage in obvious signs of medical distress, so they forced entry and began CPR, he said.
He was alone at his home at the time, McKenzie said.
She and Fotis Dulos, 52, were in the midst of a bitter custody battle. Jennifer Farber Dulos moved out in 2017 to a home in New Canaan and filed for divorce, court records show. She had told officials she was afraid of her husband before her disappearance, according to court documents obtained by CNN.
“I know that filing for divorce and filing this motion will enrage him,” she said, according to the documents. “I know he will retaliate by trying to harm me in some way.”
Fotis Dulos denied making any threats or bullying her, according to court filings.
Fotis Dulos has denied wrongdoing and his attorney has said the murder case against him lacks sufficient evidence.
Fotis Dulos is president and CEO of the Fore Group, a Farmington-based company that builds custom homes.
