HARTFORD (1010 WINS) -- A homeless man claims to have been questioned by police about a hunting knife in the case of missing Connecticut mother Jennifer Dulos.

Police believe the switchblade was used to kill the 50-year-old mom, who went missing on May 24.

The Hartford Courant spoke to the homeless man, identified only as “Fudge,” who told them that he was given the blade by another homeless man who had salvaged it from a trash bin in Hartford.

Fudge says he was approached by investigators, who told him the knife was “possibly the murder weapon from some missing woman case.”

Fudge told the Courant Saturday that he sold the knife for $10 and doesn't know the man who bought it from him.

He said he had no idea the knife was possibly used in a murder until he was told by police. “I said I had nothing to do with no murder,” he told the Courant.

Police reportedly believe the knife and a bloody pillow were placed in a bag and dumped in a bin in Hartford the same day Dulos disappeared. The bin was in the same area where bloody clothes belonging to Dulos were found.

Dulos’ estranged husband, Fotis Dulos, and his girlffiend Michelle Troconis have been twice charged with tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution in the case. They are to appear in Stamford Superior Court later this month.
