Anna Curry is a North Carolina financial advisor and the “best friend” of Fotis Dulos who helped him make his $6 million bond after he was charged with the murder of his estranged wife, Jennifer Dulos, in Connecticut. The 52-year-old Dulos was declared dead on Thursday, January 30, 2020, two days after he attempted suicide at his home in Farmington, his attorney told the Hartford Courant.
Jennifer Farber Dulos’ body has not been found. She disappeared from her home in New Canaan on May 24, 2019. Connecticut State Police and prosecutors have accused Fotis Dulos of waiting for her to return from dropping their five children off at school and then of killing her and disposing of her body. They had been going through a contentious divorce and custody battle. Prosecutors also charged Dulos’ girlfriend, Michelle Troconis, and his civil lawyer, Kent Mawhinney, with conspiracy to commit murder.
Fotis Dulos was on house arrest after posting bond. According to the Courant, Curry paid $147,000 in cash to 24/7 Bail Bonds LLC to help free her friend from prison. She also promised to pay an additional $272,000 divided over monthly payments until April 2021.
According to the Courant, Curry was staying at Dulos’ Farmington home and was at the scene when he tried to kill himself on January 28. Dulos was supposed to be in court for a bond revocation hearing and was found unresponsive by police conducting a welfare check after he failed to show up. Dulos was initially pronounced dead, but was then revived and eventually taken to a hospital in New York City. He was taken off life support on January 30 after family members came to the hospital from Greece, his attorney said.
Curry, 42, lived and worked in New York City for several years and was associated with the Manhattan socialite scene, photos of her at events reveal. She is pictured at a Hamptons Magazine event with designer Ralph Lauren’s daughter, Dylan Lauren, and Lauren’s son, Andrew Lauren, in 2005. The event was in honor of Dylan Lauren, who was on the cover of that month’s magazine. She was also pictured at the Frick Collection Garden Party in 2010.
