New details are emerging as officials released more than 400 pages of documents detailing the evidence collected in the homicide case of Fairfield County mother Jennifer Farber Dulos.

The documents include 469 pages of search and seizure requests dating back to the beginning of the search on Friday, May 24, following the disappearance of the New Canaan mother of five.

The documents include interviews with Farber Dulos' nanny, Lauren Almeida, who told police that her employer had been chased through their home by her estranged husband Fotis Dulos and that he tried to hit his wife with a vehicle, according to the Hartford Courant .

“Jennifer did not want to call the police as she was very afraid of her husband and he threatened to take the children permanently to Greece,” Almeida, told police.

Farber Dulos's estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, 52, has been charged with murder, felony murder, and kidnapping in the case. He is currently on house arrest after posting a $6 million bond.

His former lover, Michelle Troconis, 45, and his friend and former attorney, Kent Mawhinney, 54, have been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Troconis is also on house arrest after post a $1.5 million bond. Mawhinney remains in jail on a $2 million bond.

Dulos attorney Norm Pattis said his office is reviewing the search warrants.

“We’re beginning our review of the warrants and are relieved to see that the state police were listening to what we had to say," Pattis said. "The state dropped its theory that Mr. Dulos was motivated by animus regarding the divorce because it learned we were right — there was no such motive."

Pattis also said he was stunned the police never asked to interview Dulos: " We may well have been able to persuade them to drop the case altogether. We would have sat for an interview."

The new documents also reveal a large amount of blood found by officers in the garage of the Farber Dulos’ New Canaan home following her disappearance.

Police were able to get into the home after the nanny gave them the code to the garage doors, reported the Hartford Courant.

The documents said officers found fresh bloodstains on the garage floor, on the driver’s side of a black Range Rover, and that partial bloody shoe impressions were found on the concrete floor.

The warrant said a large amount of blood indicated a "serious assault" and indicated a clean-up had occurred.

A further investigation deduced it was likely multiple people were involved in the crime and clean-up, said the warrant.

Meanwhile, attorney Pattis said the new documents prove his client is innocent.

“A preliminary review of the warrant leaves us relieved and saddened," he said. "We’re relieved that there is nothing we didn’t expect or have heard about; saddened because it’s obvious the state police really have no idea what became of Jennifer. This remains an open case in our view.”
