TikTok psychic-medium finds blood-stained rug in river, claims link to murder of Connecticut’s Jennifer Dulos
Jennifer's husband Fotis who was charged with her murder and kidnapping died by suicide on January 30, 2020, but new evidence prompts investigation
FARMINGTON, CONNECTICUT: The curious case of the disappearance of a Connecticut mother has revived again after a TikToker found something potentially related to the case. The mother disappeared back in 2019 and has not been found since. Jennifer Dulos, a mother of five, was missing and presumed dead after vanishing in May 2019. There were no leads, especially after her husband Fotis Dulos killed himself too.
TikTok influencer Sean Austin found the rug not far from a house where Fotis had previously lived and quickly reported the discovery to the authorities on Sunday, September 11. The police were quick to descend into the area of the discovery in an attempt to find any other evidence. Austin calls himself a paranormal investigator, a psychic-medium and demonologist, and claims that "supernatural evidence" led him to this spot where the rug, with a vertical stain on it, was found. In fact, the rug seems big enough to be used in a living room and seems to be covered with stains entirely.
Jennifer Dulos went missing during a resentful divorce and custody battle with her estranged husband Fotis. He was charged with her murder and kidnapping but he committed suicide on January 30, 2020. A body was never found but Fotis was still charged. Austin posted the video on YouTube and could be heard saying, "We did a little investigation here with scuba divers in the Farmington River, and we found something shady, possibly having to do with the case of Jennifer Dulos."
Diving back into the missing case of Jennifer Dulos
The Dulos were married for a good 13-year time but before things turned ugly, they were caught up in a two-year-long custody battle over their children. In her divorce documents, Dulos mentions that she is afraid for her children's safety and that the divorce filing could make Fotis angry enough to harm her. She wrote that he would "retaliate by trying to harm her in some way" and claimed that he exhibited "irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling behavior." The court documents also read, "I am afraid for my safety and the physical safety and emotional well-being of our minor children."
The police believe that Fotis attacked and killed Jennifer Dulos on 24 May 2019, and even searched a property in Farmington which belonged to him. But he is not the only one who was dragged into the list of suspects. Fotis' former girlfriend Michelle Troconis and former lawyer Kent Mawhinney were also accused but they have denied and pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder in relation to the case. Troconis and Mawhinney are out on bail. The reason why Dulos was even presumed dead is because of a serious assault that was discovered by the police and took place in the garage of her New Canaan home. Up until his suicide, Fotis denied his involvement in his wife's murder.
