Babis Anagnostopoulos arrested for the murder of Caroline Crouch in Athens – .


For more than a month, Babis Anagnostopoulos has insisted that a group of thieves tortured and murdered his wife in front of their 11-month-old daughter.
The 32-year-old Greek pilot said the gruesome May 11 murder of Caroline Crouch, 20, occurred after three intruders broke into their home near Athens and tied him up. Before leaving with £ 10,000 in cash, the thieves pointed a gun at his daughter’s head before strangling Crouch, Anagnostopoulos claimed, according to local media.

” Together forever. Have a nice trip, my love, ”Anagnostopoulos wrote in Greek on Instagram on May 16, alongside a photo of the couple on their wedding day.

But in a sensational twist, the Hellenic police said Thursday, Anagnostopoulos said had confessed to the murder of his British wife when asked about inconsistencies in his story.

The confession and arrest came just hours after a memorial service was held on Alonnisos Island for Crouch. After the service was over, Anagnostopoulos was brought to Attica Police Headquarters for further questioning, police spokesman Apostolos Skrekas said. His statements had started to unravel as more evidence came to light.

“We waited until the memorial service was over, however, and then the 32-year-old husband was transferred to GADA. It could have happened yesterday, but we respected his wish to attend the memorial service, ”Skrekas said.

Authorities, however, have been suspicious of Anagnostopoulos’ account since May. Evidence at the crime scene did not reveal any fingerprints or DNA to support a theft.

Suspicion only worsened after authorities discovered that data from Crouch’s watch showed the exact moment his heart had stopped beating, which was later than the timeline provided by Anagnostopoulos. Local reports indicate that police also discovered that home security cameras were missing memory cards, erasing critical moments from the alleged crime.

Police also discovered that Anagnostopoulos was having “suspicious” activity on his cell phone at the exact time of the murder, despite his claim that he was tied up and motionless.

Earlier this month, police called on the public to be “patient” after admitting that they still had not found a catwalk car or any suspects in the alleged crime, the New York Post reported.

“There is new evidence that requires explanation. The facts of the investigation cannot be accepted. For this reason, a group from the homicide division visited Alonnisos today, ”Skrekas said on Thursday, just before police announced Anagnostopoulos’ alleged confession.
