Did Fotis Dulos kill his wife Jennifer Dulos?

Jennifer Dulos from New Canaan, CT, was last seen in May 2019 after she dropped her kids off at school in New Canaan, Connecticut. Her husband, Fotis Dulos, is a suspect in her disappearance. Some of the evidence the police have is that in 2017, Jennifer told her nanny that Fotis tried to run her over with his car. Investigators looking into Jennifer's disappearance found blood stains at her home on the garage floor. They also found her blood mixed with her husband's DNA in their kitchen.

Surveillance cameras showed someone fitting Fotis' description placing garbage bags in various trash receptacles in the Hartford area. The police found clothing in some of those trash receptacles with Jennifer's blood on it.

On January 7, 2020, Fotis was charged with the murder and kidnapping of his wife. He was allowed to remain on house arrest pending the outcome of the case. On January 28, 2020, Fotis attempted suicide through carbon monoxide poisoning. He was found unresponsive in his garage sitting in his vehicle with the engine running. On January 30, 2020, Fotis succumbed to carbon monoxide poisoning.

Fotis left a suicide note. Some people say the note states he didn't kill his wife Jennifer. Below is a picture of his suicide note.

Fotis Dulos Suicide Note

The closest Fotis comes to denying killing his wife Jennifer is in the second sentence where he wrote, "I refuse to spend even an hour more in jail for something I had NOTHING to do with."

The only good denial is when a person denies committing the act. This is done by saying, "I didn't do it" or by being more specific; "I didn't kill Jennifer." Fotis didn't write that. He only said he "had nothing to do with." He doesn't even state what he had nothing to do with. This reminds me of John Allen Muhammad the D.C. Sniper. He represented himself in court and told the jury, "The evidence, if we monitor step by step and be patient and listen to it carefully, it will show that I had nothing to do with these crimes." Muhammad was convicted and executed for being the D.C. Sniper.
