Fotis Dulos’ Sister: ‘Real Perpetrator Still At Large, Still A Threat to Public Safety’

After spending months defending and comforting her infamous brother Fotis Dulos against accusations and subsequent charges pertaining to the murder of his estranged wife Jennifer, Rena Kyrimi broke her silence in a statement to the Hartford Courant.

Fotis’ sister Rena asserts the perpetrator behind Jennifer’s disappearance remains at large and a threat to the public. She also criticizes the state, judicial system and members of the media for influencing public opinion.

Following the revelations about her brother and the investigation that surfaced on the Hartford Courant, a source close to the situation told Your Content that authorities faced “grim hurdles stemming from unreliable leads,” noting the investigation “reached the level of desperation.”


We feel devastated that a man, only 52 years of age, found himself in a dead-end where he saw taking his own life as the only way to be granted peace.

“We are shocked at how Law Enforcement obsessively focused with speculation and circumstantial evidence on an innocent man and turned their back on finding the real perpetrator of this tragedy, who is now at large, still a threat to public safety.” Rena said in the statement. “Words are not enough to describe our thoughts, emotions, and sorrow.”

“We are enraged with the Media that used him to make sensationalistic headlines, thus manipulating public opinion; the Media abandoned the presumption of innocence, seeming heedless of the effect its reporting would have on the children in this case.”

Jennifer Dulos, 50, vanished on May 24 after dropping her five children off at school. 

Fotis Dulos’ Sister: 'Real Perpetrator' Responsible for Murder of Jennifer Dulos 'Still At Large, Still A Threat to Public Safety'

Rena continued: “We, the family of this great man, feel let down by the State that pursued and harassed him and us relentlessly and with no mercy, without ever giving him or us a chance to speak our truth and to share, with a world that was too quick to call him a monster, our story. We feel devastated that a man, only 52 years of age, found himself in a dead-end where he saw taking his own life as the only way to be granted peace.”

One individual who was previously briefed on the investigation told Your Content the investigation faced grim hurdles but proceeded due to the immense and increasing pressure.

“This investigation was extremely thorough when it came to focusing in on Fotis – probably one of the most comprehensive investigations in the history of the state of Connecticut. But it was directed at one person and one person only,” the insider told Your Content. “Professional police work took a backseat in this case and they were more concerned about the public than they were at doing their jobs. This case is heavy on emotion and low on evidence.”

The source added: “The problem with this investigation that you’ll find is that it reached the level of desperation. At what point do we stop speculating and guessing; at what point do we stop being so desperate?”


Full Statement by Rena Kyrimi

Suicide – the last word anyone who knew Fotis would associate with him. Caring and nurturing father, son, brother, and uncle, achiever, hard worker, fighter, loyal friend, accomplished sportsman, book worm, a great cook, unparalleled host. This was Fotis. He would walk into a room and immediately light it up. He was the man everyone wanted to befriend.

Fotis was a loving man much loved by those who actually knew him.

We, the family of this great man, feel let down by the State that pursued and harassed him and us relentlessly and with no mercy, without ever giving him or us a chance to speak our truth and to share, with a world that was too quick to call him a monster, our story. We feel devastated that a man, only 52 years of age, found himself in a dead-end where he saw taking his own life as the only way to be granted peace. 

We are enraged with the Media that used him to make sensationalistic headlines, thus manipulating public opinion; the Media abandoned the presumption of innocence, seeming heedless of the effect its reporting would have on the children in this case. 

We are shocked at how Law Enforcement obsessively focused with speculation and circumstantial evidence on an innocent man and turned their back on finding the real perpetrator of this tragedy, who is now at large, still a threat to public safety. Words are not enough to describe our thoughts, emotions, and sorrow.

Will the State now investigate the circumstances that led to this horrible end? A family court system lacking accountability? A family court system bleeding the estate of Gloria Farber, while destroying a loving man’s relationship with his children? We are not alone in wondering how great wealth can be abused to destroy a family.

We call the Judiciary System, in the name of justice, to publicly release the family relations study in the family case; Fotis had no motive to kill. We demand nothing less than the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

We urge the State to recalibrate their investigation and work towards solving this tragic mystery. We urge the Media to understand their destructive role in this turn of events.

We call the public to pause and reflect after truly spending time reading what paltry evidence was brought against Fotis. What has become of the spirit of fair play, of the presumption of innocence? What crazy lust inspires the haters?

We had contemplated burying Fotis in Farmington but fear desecration of his grave. We will remove his remains to Greece and bid farewell to a nation at war with its ideals.
