Husband of Caroline Crouch confesses to suffocating her weeks after claiming criminals broke into their home and strangled her



The Greek husband of a British woman named Caroline Crouch, 20, has finally confessed to murdering her after she vowed to leave him and take their baby with her, police have confirmed.



Babis Anagnostopoulos, 33, admitted to suffocating her to death after more than eight hours of interrogation in the homicide department of Athens' police headquarters.







Babis, a helicopter pilot, had claimed that Albanian criminals broke into his home on Tuesday, May 11, 2021, blindfolded him, tied him up, then beat his wife and strangled her to death. He added that the killers went off with 15,000 Euros in real money and other valuables

He even granted interviews, pretending to be a grieving husband for over a month. Even after his wife was buried in May, he continued in the pretense.







At his wife's funeral, Babis looked mournful as he carried their daughter.







In a moving eulogy, an emotional Babis said:
"I was very lucky that I knew Caroline and that she loved me. I was very lucky for all the moments we shared.



"One thing that makes me even more sad than her death is the fact that our daughter will grow up without remembering her beautiful mother who was the joy of my life.



"But through her daughter, Caroline will always be with me and with all of us. Our loved ones are the most important people to us all."








Cops spent weeks searching for the non-existent Albanian criminals. But Babis eventually confessed following interrogation.



"The culprit is her 33-year-old husband who has confessed to the act," the authorities said in a statement released at 9.36 PM local time on Thursday, June 17.




Police have described him as a "top class actor" because of the way he staged the elaborate crime scene and continued pretending as the grieving widower for over a month.



Babis even drowned the family dog and hung its body from a stair banister to blame it on the burglars and strengthen his story, investigators said.



According to reports, Babis eventually broke down saying: "That night we had been arguing from early on.Latest Post
