Michelle Troconis – charged with assisting her boyfriend in connection to the disappearance of Jennifer Dulos – provided “crucial information” to law enforcement earlier today, RadarOnline.com can exclusively report.
“Ms. Troconis voluntarily met with officials from the Stamford-Norwalk States Attorney’s Office Thursday afternoon,” multiple law enforcement sources told Radar in the case of the missing mother of five.
“She provided crucial information to assist authorities in their investigation.”
New details were being discovered in the brutal death of the missing Connecticut woman.
“The meeting lasted approximately three hours and Ms. Troconis agreed to let authorities record the meeting with both audio and video equipment,” the insider explained.
Radar was first to report that authorities sources deemed the case a homicide, stating: "This is no longer a missing persons investigation. This is now a murder case."
“We feel a lot of sadness, we feel relief, and we feel some resolve following the meeting with the co-defendant,” the source continued. “We will work tirelessly, non-stop, selflessly around the clock. We had to force officers and others assisting in the search to leave when their shifts were over.”
The FBI joined state and local law enforcement officers to search several properties that belong to her estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, who was arrested on June 1 with his girlfriend for allegedly tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution.
The missing mother was 50-years-old and she was last seen May 24.
“The information provided us additional leads in which authorities are actively and vigorously pursuing,” the law enforcement source continued, noting they obtained an additional search warrant and expect to continue searching for evidence overnight.
“Although we’ve sped through this week and we’ve accomplished so much – we have so much more to do to bring justice to this case,” the source noted. “Authorities gained very valuable intelligence and information that they did not have and have now been able to cohobate which will yet come to be proven in a court of law.”
“We are pleased with our progress,” a second law enforcement source told Radar. “This perpetrator was the worst of the worst.”
The source noted that police are swarming a large property located in Farmington, Connecticut based on the information provided to them in the three-hour meeting.
“An emergency search warrant was obtained for a property owned by the victim’s estranged husband,” a law enforcement source said. “The FBI Evidence Response Team responded to search for potential evidence.”
Radar was first to report new details relating to an emergency search warrant authorities obtained late Wednesday night after they received several tips that law enforcement sources claimed "circled back to that residence."
No further information was immediately available.
