Jennifer Dulos from New Canaan Connecticut has been missing since May 24 and her estranged husband Fotis Dulos is still claiming he is innocent.
In his first interview on NBC, he says he understands why people would think he’s guilty as spouses are always the first suspect when it comes to a spouses disappearance.
“I think they should wait (before assuming I’m guilty). So statically, when something like this happens, 90 or 95 percent it’s the spouse. So I can understand why people feel like this. I’m in the 5 or 10 percent category.”
Fotis and his girlfriend Michelle were caught on camera throwing away several trash bags in 30 bins in Hartford Connecticut. Two of the bags had items with Jennifer’s blood.
Since Jennifer’s body hasn’t been found, Fotis has only been charged with tampering with or fabricating physical evidence and hindering prosecution in connection with Jennifer’s case. He was released on a $500,000 bond and is not allowed to contact his children, who are with Jennifer’ mother;
“I don’t have my kids, Jennifer is not around, Michelle is not around. I have a GPS on my foot. Somebody has to look at who is the one worst affected in this situation,” Fotis said.
Two days before she vanished, Fotis was eating dinner at her New Canaan home, communicating again through their divorce. He claims they just started talking again mid-April and that he would never wish any ill towards her.
According to Jennifer’s own words, she was afraid of him. During the divorce, she claimed she feared for her life after Fotis bought a handgun. She described Fotis as a man who is “irrational, unsafe, bullying, threatening and controlling behavior.”
