Jennifer Dulos has been missing since Friday, May 24, after dropping off her children at school in New Canaan.

Police believe that Fotis Dulos was lying in wait for her at her New Canaan home and killed her and got rid of the evidence along with help from Troconis.

Her body has never been found.

Dulos and Troconis were charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence in June after they were seen on video surveillance dumping garbage bags in New Haven that later proved to hold items containing Jennifer Dulos' DNA.

The pair was arrested again in September, and charged with tampering with/or fabricating physical evidence,

Both have pleaded not guilty and were free on bond.

New Canaan Police, along with state police, have worked tirelessly searching for the missing mother.

The department had vowed that they would not rest until they found justice for the beloved woman.
