The Connecticut developer accused of murdering his estranged wife was rushed to the hospital Tuesday afternoon after an apparent suicide attempt.

Citing an official familiar with the case, the New York Times initially reported that the 52-year-old Fotis Dulos, who was charged earlier this month with murdering his wife Jennifer, had died Tuesday. But Dulos’ lawyer, Norm Pattis, said to the Hartford Courant that Dulos was rushed to the hospital with a pulse.

Authorities believe Dulos poisoned himself with carbon monoxide, according to the Times’ source. Fotis was found alone at his home, where authorities responded to a wellness check after he did not respond to a court hearing on Tuesday, according to CNN.

Jennifer Dulos, 50, disappeared in May 2019 after dropping their kids off at school. Her body has never been found.

CEO of Farmington-based developer Fore Group, Fotis Dulos also had been charged with kidnapping his wife. His girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder.

Dulos used an employee’s truck, which was captured on surveillance footage driving between Farmington and New Canaan, where Jennifer Dulos lived, on the day she vanished, according to authorities. The passenger seat of the truck, a red Toyota pickup, had a blood-like substance that was linked to Jennifer Dulos’ DNA, according to arrest warrants.
