Caroline Crouch’s husband was testifying at GADA late Thursday by Greek police when Babis Anagnostopoulos admitted to committing her gruesome murder on May 11 in their Athens home.
He was taken in for questioning a day after he attended a memorial service for the late Caroline Crouch on Alonissos island.
Crouch, 20, according to the made up story was strangled to death in front of her 11-month-old daughter on May 11 at their house outside of Athens. Initially, the husband, Anagnostopoulos stated that the murder was committed by robbers.
The suspect told detectives that he killed Crouch because she threatened to leave him and take their 11-month-old child with her during an argument, according to reports.
“That night, we had a fight. She threw the infant into the crib at one point and told me to get up and leave the house. She hit and shoved me. He told investigators, “I blurred, killed her, and then I staged the robbery.”
Her husband admitted to setting up the murder scene to support his initial story to police that the 20-year-old was attacked and strangled by three robbers hunting for cash and valuables while he was tied to a chair and helpless.
When questioned by local reporters, Apostolos Skrekas, a spokesman for the Greek Police, declined to say if Anagnostopoulos acted alone or had hired accomplices.
