Murder suspect Fotis Dulos had a new girlfriend who fronted thousands of dollars in cash in order for him to make bond, DailyMail.com has learned.
Anna K. Curry, 42, put up $147,000 in cash and said she would pay an additional $272,000 to secure the $6million bond that Dulos posted after he was charged with the murder of his estranged wife, Jennifer Farber Dulos, who has been missing since last May, according to documents obtained by DailyMail.com.
Curry was seen at Dulos’ home at 4 Jefferson Crossing in Farmington, Connecticut, on Tuesday in the hours before he was due to attend a hearing at Stamford Superior Court where he feared his bond would be revoked and he would be jailed.
She left Dulos’ home around 10.30am to run errands and returned to find police officers fighting to revive him on the driveway, according to sources.

Shortly before midday, police officers performing a wellness check when he did not show at court, found Dulos, 52, inside his garage with a hosepipe taped to his exhaust in an attempted suicide by carbon monoxide poisoning.
At one point he was legally dead, before being revived.
He remained in a critical condition at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, New York, after being airlifted on Tuesday until Thursday afternoon, when he died.
Curry, 42, also said she would pay an additional $272,000 to secure the $6million bond for Dulos, who was charged with the murder of his wife Jennifer
Sources confirmed that Curry, who bears a striking resemblance to Dulos’ missing wife Jennifer and his ex-girlfriend Michelle Troconis, who has been charged with conspiracy to commit murder, was in a romantic relationship with him.
A neighbor told DailyMail.com: ‘A young woman has been at Fotis’ house several times over the past few months. They’ve been out jogging together. She’s been driving one of his cars.’
Curry lives in Charlotte, North Carolina, and works in financial services.
She worked at Capgemini, a consulting firm in New York, as a senior consultant in wealth management strategy for four years from 1999 until 2003, according to her LinkedIn.
Dulos overlapped with her time at the company when he was a manager at Capgemini for seven years from 1997 until 2004.
Curry went on to take other senior positions in wealth management at New York firms until 2013 when she relocated to North Carolina, where her family are based. She graduated magna cum laude from Duke University in Durham with a BA in history in 1999.
Social media pictures appear to show she is a keen equestrian.
On Curry, Dulos’ lawyer Norm Pattis said in a earlier statement: ‘It is my understanding and belief these were old friends who developed a friendship years ago at work and out of loyalty to that friendship she has assisted Mr. Dulos. We should all be lucky enough to have such a loyal friend.’
Pattis confirmed to DailyMail.com in a text message that he was representing Curry.
He declined to elaborate on Dulos and Curry’s relationship.

The Hartford Courant first reported that Curry wrote two checks for a total of $147,000 on January 9, according to public records, in order to pay the bail bondsman his fee on the $6million bond. Dulos contributed a check for $1,000.
The conditions of Dulos’ $6million bond meant putting up 7 per cent of that amount or $420,000 in cash, to prevent him awaiting trial in jail.
In the documents, seen by DailyMail.com, Dulos lists Curry as his ‘best friend’. He also lists the names of his five children and his sister, Rena, who lives in Athens, Greece and was due to arrive at the hospital to see her brother.
According to the filing, Curry agreed to pay the balance of just over $272,000 in 15 installments until April 2021.
Palmetto Surety Company, which originally posted the bond, had recently learned that two properties offered as collateral, including the real estate developer’s mansion in Farmington, were subject to foreclosure and a third was overvalued by over $300,000.
At Dulos’ rescheduled bond hearing on Wednesday, the judge ruled that Dulos would not have to deal with issues over his bond unless he recovers.
If his bond had been revoked, it may have prevented family from visiting him in hospital.

Rena Kyrimi, his sister and closest living adult relative, has traveled to New York with his niece Angelika.
Dulos had unsuccessful treatment in a hyperbaric chamber for carbon monoxide poisoning. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is used to raise the level of oxygen in a patient’s blood and to reduce carbon dioxide levels as quickly as possible in cases of acute carbon monoxide poisoning.
Sources told DailyMail.com that before the suicide, Dulos was ‘losing his mind’ at the prospect of having to go back into custody and that he tried to take his own life because of it.
Dulos called Mark Motuzick of Capitol Bail Bonds in Hartford on Tuesday morning about taking over his bond. Motuzick had a conversation with Dulos around 10.30am when he called him back, and Motuzick said that Dulos had sounded out of breath and ‘loopy’.
