Watch: Preview of 'Gone Mom' movie based on Jennifer Dulos disappearance

NEW CANAAN — From the lavish wedding to Jennifer Dulos arriving home the morning she vanished and the investigation that ensued, A+E Networks’ Lifetime Television has offered a brief glimpse into its movie based on the Connecticut mother’s disappearance.

On Saturday, Lifetime released a 30-second trailer to its movie, “Gone Mom: The Disappearance of Jennifer Dulos,” which is set to premiere on June 5.

“I love Fotis, I’m going to have a family with him,” actress Annabeth Gish, portraying the 50-year-old New Canaan mother of five, says during the preview.

A few clips later, a woman tells investigators, “You need to find her husband, whatever happened to Jennifer, he is behind it.”

The movie chronicles the life and disappearance of Jennifer Dulos, who was embroiled in a two-year divorce and custody battle with her estranged husband when she vanished on May 24, 2019.

“People make all sorts of horrible assumptions, they don’t know me,” actor Warren Christie said in a clip as he portrayed international water ski champion and high-end real estate developer Fotis Dulos. “I’m innocent.”

The real-life saga that unfolded in the quiet Fairfield County community made international headlines as the frantic search and investigation gripped Connecticut following the disappearance.

Friends reported Jennifer Dulos missing around 7 p.m. May 24, 2019 after police said she didn’t show up for several appointments that day and wasn’t answering her phone.

When they arrived at her Welles Lane home, police said they found blood in her garage and signs the scene had been cleaned up, according to arrest warrants in the case.

The discovery touched off one of the largest police investigations in Connecticut history.

Police believe Fotis Dulos was “lying in wait” for his wife to return home from dropping off their children at school around 8 a.m. May 24, 2019, the warrants state.

The state’s chief medical examiner determined Jennifer Dulos was the victim of a “serious physical assault” and would likely have died of her injuries without immediate medical attention, the arrest warrants state.

However, while defending Fotis Dulos, attorney Norm Pattis offered several alternative theories to what happened that day, including that Jennifer Dulos staged her own disappearance like the “Gone Girl” novel that was turned into a movie.

But police and prosecutors contended the evidence pointed to Fotis Dulos.

Around the time Jennifer Dulos was reported missing, police said Fotis Dulos and his girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, were captured on Hartford surveillance video. Police said Fotis Dulos was seen making a series of stops and discarding bags that were later determined to contain his estranged wife’s blood and clothing, the warrants state.

Police said they later found more evidence connecting Fotis Dulos with the crime when they seized a pickup truck belonging to one of his employees, the warrants state.

Police said traffic cameras captured the pickup truck driving to and from New Canaan the day of the disappearance and it was also seen near Waveny Park where Jennifer Dulos’ abandoned SUV was later found, according to arrest warrants.

One of the seats that Fotis Dulos told his employee to remove from the truck was found stained with his estranged wife’s blood, according to arrest warrants.

Fotis Dulos died from a suicide in January 2020 while facing murder, kidnapping and other charges in the case.

Troconis has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder, tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution. She is scheduled to be back in court on May 25 — two years and one day since the disappearance.

Kent Mawhinney, a longtime friend and former attorney for Fotis Dulos, has pleaded not guilty to conspiracy to commit murder. Mawhinney is accused of helping to create an alibi for Fotis Dulos the day of the disappearance, according to arrest warrants. Prosecutors have said Mawhinney is expected to testify if Troconis’ case goes to trial.

“Gone Mom: The Disappearance of Jennifer Dulos” will air at 8 p.m. June 5 on Lifetime. A+E Networks is a joint venture between Hearst and The Walt Disney Company.
