A British mother who was strangled to death by her husband kept a coded diary to write about the abuse she suffered before, it has been revealed.

Caroline Crouch’s Greek husband admitted last week to strangling her, in their home just outside Athens, after she threatened to leave him on May 11.

The confession came after police called Babis Anagnostopoulosa, 33, a ‘leading actor’ for his performance as a grieving husband who told the world his 20-year-old wife was gang-killed during of a home invasion.

He even killed the family dog ​​to help make the staged robbery more compelling.

Now it has emerged that coded passages from Ms Crouch’s diary were included in a 26-page police report.

But the Greek authorities do not want to publish the extracts, the Times reported.

Supreme Court Prosecutor Vassilis Pliotis said: “The publication of the entries not only offends the memory of the victim, but it can help create a favorable climate for the accused and his line of defense. “

Mr Pliotis has ordered an investigation into how certain extracts have already been disclosed.

The clips are believed to detail the horrors of Ms. Crouch’s relationship which has proven to be controlling, possessive and physically harmful.

There are entries that have been previously leaked that describe the suffering of the young mother.

In December 2019, Ms Crouch wrote: “I fought with Babi again. This time it was serious. I hit him, cursed him, and he kicked in the door.

“All I wanted was for him to ask me how I’m doing when I woke up. I woke up so weak and tired.

‘I am thinking of leaving. I am thinking of going to my sister’s house, I don’t know if I can continue with Babi.

“I love him so much that I can’t leave him even though this relationship hurts me. ”

In July, she wrote: “Today my little one was a month old. And today is the day I told Babis that I wanted to leave the house.

“As soon as he left to pick up a document that had sent us to do a test for the little one, I started looking for houses.

“I found exactly what I was looking for in Halandri (a suburb in the north of Athens).

“When he (Babis) came back from the hospital, I told him. He asked me if I wanted to separate.

Another entry read, “After a few tears and a lot of screaming, I told him.

“I told him that before I got pregnant I had thought about leaving him, but after I got pregnant, I stayed with him so that my daughter wouldn’t grow up without both of her parents. ”

Anagnostopoulosa is currently being held in the women’s wing of a maximum security prison for her own safety, pending trial.

He had previously told the police: “That night we fought early. At one point, she threw the child into the crib and told me to leave the house.

“I lost my temper, I smothered her with the pillow. “Then I invented theft. “

Although Anagnostopoulosa admitted to killing his wife, he should say it was not premeditated and could reduce the prison term he faces to a maximum of 15 years.

His lawyer Alexandros Papaioannidis has already said: “(Anagnostopoulosa) never wanted all of this to happen.

“It wasn’t something he had planned. He panicked. And he did what he did to protect his daughter who would be left alone [had he been imprisoned].’
