The former husband of the missing Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos said he had a & # 39; beautiful life & # 39; had with his lover before his estranged wife disappeared, but he hopes she & # 39; sometime & # 39; will appear in an interview that was recorded before he was arrested for a second time in connection with her disappearance.
Fotis, 52, was arrested last Wednesday for manipulating evidence. He placed $ 500,000 bonds and was released. Police say he was filmed on surveillance cameras & # 39; s with his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, dumping garbage bags the night Jennifer disappeared with bloody clothes.
The car he used on the day she disappeared was also tested for her DNA and found in a bloodstain in the back seat.
Despite their clear evidence, Fotis has not been accused of assault or murder and there has been no sign of Jennifer or her body since 24 May.
In a Dateline interview he recorded for his second arrest, but after his first arrest, he denied damaging her and said he thought she was alive.
& # 39; I would lie to you if I told you that I didn't have a very nice life. I had a beautiful life, I was with someone I was completely in love with, Michelle.
& # 39; And the divorce was the only thing that wasn't positive in my life and I couldn't wait until it was over. But now my life is a mess and I had absolutely no desire or interest in being in this mess & he said.
Troconis confessed to the police in her second interview that she lied when she said she had an alibi for her boyfriend and that he & # 39; alibi scripts & # 39; had given to recite them about where they had been and what they were doing the day Jennifer disappeared.

Fotis Dulos recorded an interview with NBC & # 39; s Dateline which was broadcast on Monday before being arrested for the second time earlier this week in connection with the disappearance of his ex-wife
In his Dateline interview, Fotis insisted that he had never been violent against her, despite the fact that in divorce papers she claimed to be scared of him and said: & # 39; There is never, never, never violence, abuse of any kind been wise.
Jennifer Dulos has not been seen since 24 May
& # 39; Jennifer and I haven't even had a fight all these years. I don't blame her or me. It just happens and it always happens, & he said, in a clear explanation why they broke up.
He said he believed she was alive and he wanted her to appear & # 39; to & # 39; solve this mess & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I wish she was here to solve this mess. And I still hope she'll show up, & he said.
Although he said he could not discuss the matter, he did not hurt Jennifer and had nothing to do with her disappearance.
He also said that she was a & # 39; grand mother & # 39; and said he thinks she's alive.
& # 39; She was a wonderful mother. I think she was an excellent mother.
& # 39; And I hope she remains an excellent mother, & # 39; he said.
Asked by host Dennis Murphy if he believed his alienated wife was still alive, he replied: & # 39; I know. & # 39;
Dulos seemed to be in a house when he gave the interview. He placed a $ 500.00 bond on Wednesday after his second arrest
Murphy replied: & # 39; Against all circumstances … & # 39;
Michelle Troconis would have admitted that she originally lied to the police and could not give her boyfriend an alibi on the morning that Jennifer was missing
Dulos intervened: & # 39; I don't want to discuss this … on the advice of my lawyer. & # 39;
Asked if he & # 39; had anything to do & # 39; with her disappearance, he said: & i didn't do it. But I would like to leave it at that. & # 39;
He and Jennifer had been married since 2004. They met at Brown University and made the knot within weeks of his first divorce.
She discovered that he had an affair with Troconis and fled in the middle of the night, calling 911 and causing bitter divorce.
In court documents, Jennifer said she was terrified of him and that he had threatened her with & # 39; sickening revenge fantasies & # 39; if she had ever applied for divorce.
Fotis & # 39; second arrest last week gathered shocking new details from the police investigation.
Under claims in the new arrest report;
- In her third interview with the police, Troconis admitted that she was lying about Dulos' Alibi and said she did not know where he was between 6:40 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. on the day Jennifer disappeared.
- Dulos swapped the back seat of the Toyota Tacoma truck he had borrowed on the day of the disappearance of an employee with seats from the Porsche of Jennifer
- Five days after she disappeared, he took the truck without the owner's knowledge or permission to clean and re-arrange a car wash
- He told the employee to get rid of the original backseat, claiming that the police might find one of Jennifer's hair on when he hugged her & # 39; on May 12, weeks before she disappeared
- A blood stain was found in the back seat that, when tested, corresponded to Jennan's DNA
When the new, explosive details appeared on Wednesday, when leaving the prison, Fotis said: & # 39; It's a tiring fight. I love my children. That's about it. & # 39;
He has both his girlfriend and the employee, whom he as & # 39; handyman & # 39; has been fired, accused of lying.
His lawyer Pattis said Wednesday: & apparently Michelle has changed his tone and tells a handyman stories to divert attention from himself.
& # 39; If this was Christmas morning, I would say & # 39; have I waited all these months for this meager gift? There is not much here that we have not heard before. & # 39;
& # 39; Where is the murder charge?
& # 39; We would like the state police to spend more time looking for Jennifer and less trying to set up a case against Fotis.
& # 39; We will not be guilty of these allegations next week in Norwalk. & # 39;
In their arrest warrant, state police details how he & # 39; has done nothing to help this investigation to date & # 39 ;.
Their theory is that he drove to his wife's rented house in New Canaan and assaulted her after & # 39; on May 24.
Dulos & # 39; was lurking to attack Jennifer at home & # 39;
The police say that Fotis & # 39; is lurking & # 39; for Jennifer on the morning of May 24 after the red Toyota Tacoma pickup truck, owned by Gumienny and to which Fotis had access, was pictured parked in New Canaan, close to where Jennifer Suburban was later found abandoned that day.
Shortly after 8 o'clock, JEnnifer is pictured when she comes home after dropping her children into school and somewhere in the next two hours, the police say that & # 39; the crime and cleaning up & # 39; takes place.
Around 8.05 am the police said he was waiting for her & # 39; at her place. The crime & # 39; and clean up & # 39; happened between 8.05 a.m. and 10.25 a.m.
Before 8 o'clock in the morning, the Tacoma truck that borrowed Fotis was spotted on surveillance footage that drove to Jenny's house (shown)

At 11.12 am, after the alleged attack, the truck – reportedly with Fotis in it – is filmed and returns to his hometown
Around 10:20 am Jennifer's car sees her home leave, but the police say he was driving it.
It is unclear where the vehicle in which he had been, the Toyota Tacoma, was at this stage.
After the & # 39; serious attack in the garage & # 39; – which the authorities will not explicitly say he committed – he reportedly drove Jenny's car with her in it.
Allegedly he is picked up again at 11.20 am in the Tacoma by surveillance cameras on the way to Farmington.
It is not thought that he went home, but instead went to a property that he owned.
He then had lunch with his girlfriend at 1.30 a.m.
Fotis & # 39; told the employee whose truck he was borrowing to get rid of after he changed back seats where Jennifer's DNA was found with some from HER Porsche & # 39;
The most explosive claims in the new order come from Pawel Gummieny, the employee whose truck would have used Fotis.
He told police how he drove one of his cars – a Ford Raptor – on May 24 while driving to New Canaan for a job.
It was common that he owned his boss's cars, he said.
His car, the red Toyota Tacoma, was at Fotis's home in Farmington.
He said that he received a message from Fotis around 2:30 pm asking when he would return to & # 39; the office & # 39 ;.
The pictured red Toyota Tacoma pickup, owned by Pawel Gumienny, was parked in New Canaan, near the place where Jennifer Suburban was found abandoned later that day

He told him around 4:30 PM. When he came home to Fotis, however, he was not there.
He then found Fotis, Troconis and his truck in another area where they are cleaning & # 39; seemed to be.
Fotis asked him to help him bring a few other vehicles to his house. By the time he returned to the area where his Tacoma was, Troconis had disappeared with the keys, he said.
Fotis, he says, then urged him to keep his Raptor for a few more days, but he refused and said he wanted the Tacoma back.
He took the vehicle back, but five days later on May 29 he was surprised to hear that Fotis and Troconis had washed it without his knowledge.
Over the next few days, he continued to encourage him to remove and replace the sleeves. He described Fotis as tenacious and & # 39; intrusive & # 39 ;, sometimes to the point where Dulos became angry that he had not yet changed the seats.
In future conversations, Fotis referred to the chairs as hardware.
By May 31, when the police first met him at Fotis, he had swapped the back seat of his car with Jenny's Porsche seats.
During an interview, Gumienny said that Fotis ordered him to do it and that he also ordered him to get rid of them so that they would not be found.
Suspicious, Gumienny said he decided to keep them.
Gumienny told the police that when he asked Fotis why he was so determined to change or get rid of the truck, Fotis gave a story that he hugged Jennifer on May 12, Mother's Day, while visiting her home.
He said that because she had been missing for days and no suspects were named, he was afraid the police would have a & # 39; her & # 39; in the back seat and try to link him to her disappearance.
Gumienny held the seats that had been in the Tacoma on May 24 and told the police that they could search and test them.
It was there that the police said they had a & # 39; bloody substance & # 39; had found Jennifer's DNA, despite Fotis' alleged attempts to clean the car, as seen in the Russell Speeders Car Wash surveillance video.
The girlfriend of Fotis is no longer his alibi, admits that she lied and said that he & # 39; alibi scripts & # 39; gave
The arrest warrant also sheds light on how Troconis has now admitted that she had originally lied to the police and could not give her boyfriend an alibi on the morning Jennifer was missing.
She would also have told the police that Fotis told her that he was cleaning up spilled coffee in the Toyota Tacoma, but Troconis said it didn't smell like the drink.
When it is said why she thought he was cleaning the car, she would have said to the police: &, of course … all the evidence says because … you give me the photo of the blood in the door showed, it's because Jennifer's body was there at one point. & # 39;
& # 39; Of course, all the evidence says, because … you showed me the picture of the blood in the door, it's because Jenny's body was there once. & # 39;
The order adds that she provided & # 39; a substantial amount of information that was contradictory and did not suffice during the & # 39; investigation, when she was interviewed on June 2.
And in notes that the & # 39; Alibi scripts & # 39; mentioned, the pair of pages would have come up with handwritten fake covers.
One of the alleged lies that was written on them was that they showered together that morning.
Troconis told the police that Fotis told her.
On August 13, Troconis admitted during her previous two interviews & # 39; she had not been truthful & # 39 ;.
She confirmed that she did not physically see Fotis when she woke up in the morning of 24 May until after noon.
She said she was mistaken & # 39; & # 39; when she reported that they had been in the shower together.
The next time she saw him was at 1.30 pm when he came home for lunch.
That afternoon they went to the 80 Mountain Spring Road building. She said she had witnessed the cleaning of what he thought was spilled coffee.
He gave her a stained towel that he had used and put it in a plastic garbage bag.
When she asked, she said she couldn't remember the color of the stain, but said it didn't smell like coffee.
When asked why he would wash the car, she said: "Of course, all the evidence says that … you showed me the picture of the blood in the door, because at a given moment Jenny's body was there was. & # 39;
