FARMINGTON, Conn. (WTNH) — New developments surfaced in the investigation of missing New Canaan mother of five Jennifer Farber Dulos. Thursday morning the attention centered around an Avon home near Fotis Dulos‘ former Farmington home at 4 Jefferson Crossing.

Sunday will mark one year since Jennifer Dulos has been missing and was presumably killed. To date, her remains have not been recovered, but the investigation into her disappearance still very active.

Fotis and Jennifer lived in the house on Sky View Drive in Avon in 2010. Then, in 2018 when the house needed major renovations, Dulos’ company, the Fore Group, was contracted by the owner to do that work.

The current owner of the Avon home, David Ford, said that Fotis had access to the Avon home from approximately January through April of 2018 to do those renovations. According to Ford, Fotis would not have had access to that home following that time — at least not with his permission. Fotis had a key to the house during the renovation, and Ford is not sure if he ever gave the key back.

State police also told News 8 that they have investigated the Avon property in the past, and now that they have received a new tip regarding the home, they may return to search the property again.

“Do whatever they want,” said Ford. “Don’t leave any stone unturned. I don’t care what they do, when they do, how they do it. If it helps five kids feel better about a horrible situation, they can do whatever they want.”

The house has been empty for the past year. It’s under renovation and in a heavily wooded area.

Ford told reporters that when he was preparing to move into the home in 2010, Fotis and Jennifer were in the process of moving out. He said he did not see any signs of trouble at that time.

“Look, I saw a guy that had a good relationship with his kids,” said Ford. “I saw a mom that had a good relationship with her kids. That was 10 years ago.”

Some in the community feel it’s time for closure.

“On the one hand, it would be good to find some closure,” said Justin, a Connecticut resident. “It’s really just an unfortunate situation all around but for the family and everyone involved; it would be a good thing.”

Jennifer is the estranged wife of the late Fotis, who died of an apparent suicide attempt in January 2020 while on house arrest. Fotis was facing murder charges in his wife’s disappearance. He was out on a $6 million bond at the time he died.
