After an attempted suicide, murder suspect Fotis Dulos has died just two days after attempting suicide just 48 hours after being due to a court hearing regarding the suspicious murder of his wife. Dulos was under suspicion of killing his wife with the assistance of his girlfriend, Anna K. Curry.
A few words from Daily Mail:
Attorney Norm Pattis confirmed that his client died at 5.32p.m. Thursday at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, New York, surrounded by family, friends and his legal team.
The 52-year-old had clung to life for more than 48 hours, after trying to take his own life at his home in Farmington, Connecticut, on Tuesday.
Dulos’ family are now demanding that he is cleared of murdering his wife Jennifer last year.
‘The family is adamant that his name be cleared,’ Pattis said in a statement, after announcing Dulos’ death.
Pattis filed an ‘unusual motion’ on Thursday requesting the state continues to pursue the murder case against Dulos posthumously – so that his lawyers can clear his name.
In the move, which the Hartford Courant said is ‘unprecedented’, Dulos’ estate would become the defendant because Dulos is now deceased.
Shortly before midday Tuesday, police officers performing a wellness check when he did not show at court, found Dulos, inside his garage with a hosepipe taped to his exhaust in an attempted suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.
They dragged him into the fresh air, performed CPR and rushed him to the hospital. At one point he was legally dead before being revived.
He was on bail accused of murdering his estranged wife Jennifer Dulos when he died.
His attorney Pattis added: ‘Mr. Dulos was tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. Now he has been executed. We remain committed to demonstrating he did not murder Jennifer.’
