The new lawyer for the estranged husband of missing Connecticut woman Jennifer Dulos claimed on Monday that there was “powerful reason to doubt” his client was at Dulos’s home the day she disappeared, a report said.
Norm Pattis, who also represents conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, said in a statement that there was no proof Fotis Dulos was at his estranged wife’s home when she disappeared on May 24, according to the Stamford Advocate.
“There are powerful reasons to doubt he was even at the scene of his estranged wife’s home the day she disappeared,” Pattis said. “I am unaware of any evidence supporting the theory he was involved in foul play.”
Pattis also said on WPLR’s Chaz & AJ radio show that Dulos’ girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, was not in New Canaan the day Jennifer Dulos disappeared.
“I’m told by people with information that the girlfriend was never at the New Canaan home that day — the day the wife went missing — and that she can prove she never was there and that law enforcement may be satisfied,” Pattis said on the radio show, the Advocate reported. “That is a very significant fact in this case.”
Fotis Dulos and Troconis have been charged with evidence tampering and hindering a prosecution in the disappearance of Jennifer, which is being treated as a homicide.
They’re expected to plead not guilty in court on Tuesday.
Jennifer, 50, a mother of five, has been missing since the morning of May 24.
