Exposure: Babis Anagnostopoulos was a drug smuggler and Caroline found out about it


Caroline’s father made a “sensational” claim, accusing his son-in-law of being part of a drug gang and transporting drugs by helicopter.

“If she leaves you, and she leaves anyway, she will know about everything … And one day she will speak, and you will have to get rid of her,” the Pοταμός edition quotes. In an interview, the father of Caroline’s brutally murdered husband emphasized that the family’s intention is to protect the granddaughter (daughter of pilot Babis Anagnostopoulos and Caroline) from her criminal father. The intention of the grandparents who took little Lidia away is not to return to Alonissos and continue to live permanently in the Philippines.

Speaking to ANT1, David Crouch said that Babis Anagnostopoulos was “involved in a drug gang” and “told Caroline about it”, who told him in response that if he continued, she would leave for the Philippines.

According to Mr. Crouch, “Babis was very stubborn” and told the gang members that Caroline found out about the drugs, so they told him, “We have to get rid of her” and “he ended up killing her himself.”

“Do you know that he was involved in a drug gang? There was a restaurant that Babis and Caroline used to go to all the time. The owner of the restaurant was involved in the drug trade and told Babis that he and the gang he was in needed a helicopter pilot to deliver and transport drugs. So it was a job for which he was paid a lot of money,” says David Crouch.

“That was the only reason he killed her”

“Babis was very stupid. When he shared the secret with his wife instead of keeping his mouth shut, he later regretted it. Caroline was a very honest person and said that she wanted nothing to do with this, and if he continued to transport drugs, she would immediately leave for the Philippines with the child. Babis said he wrote me a letter! And he also told his mother about everything. If you talk to his mother, she will confirm this,” Caroline’s father said and commented on the letter. – It was written in very good English and not signed. This is not a confession. But if you talk to his mother, she will tell the truth.” When asked why Babis did not mention this during the trial, he replied: “What’s the point? This man was tried for premeditated murder and received the maximum sentence. This is the end of the story for me.”

The course of events of the murder of a 20-year-old young mother, pilot’s wife Caroline Crouch

The pilot killed his young wife and presented it as a robbery case. As it turned out during a long investigation, there was no robbery in the house, and the culprit of the crime, the killer of a young mother, turned out to be her 32-year-old husband Babis Anagnostopoulos, who all this time “played the role of a heartbroken widower”, both for the relatives of the unfortunate girl and in front of reporters.

After long testimony, he “broke” and confessed in his terrible deed, since the evidence against him was irrefutable. However, the cold-blooded behavior of the head of the family is impressive, however, as well as the way he planned to hide murder of the wife and mother of his child.

The robbery at the home of a pilot’s friend on the night of July 17, 2018 in Alepochori, told to him by a colleague, seems to have inspired the story of the robbery that he tried to “recreate” and the theatrical scenes that the killer husband acted out. The way he described to police the behavior of the three perpetrators who allegedly entered their home in the early hours of May 11 leads experts to believe the man was inspired by what he heard from a friend. And he decided to use a terrible crime as a basis in order to divert suspicion from himself.

Nevertheless, the facts became more and more as the investigation into the murder of Caroline went on. As a result, it became clear to the police that her husband is the killer. The detainee confessed to the crime.

The society is divided into two parts: some consider the pilot, driven to extremes by his wife’s tantrums, a “decent family man”, while others cannot forgive the “cold-blooded behavior” of the killer of the mother of his 11-month-old daughter. After the pilot was detained, custody of little Lydia was given to her grandmother (Caroline’s mother).

Life in prison for the murder of Caroline Crouch plus 10 years for the murder of the family dog ​​- pilot Babis Anagnostopoulos was sentenced on Monday by the Athens Criminal Court. In addition, the defendant received a fine of 21,000 euros – 20,000 euros for killing an animal and 1,000 euros for perjury to the police. For minor offenses, he was sentenced to one year in prison for “falsely reporting” to the police, and three years’ probation and a fine of 3,500 euros for “falsely reporting to the authorities”. The amount of the life sentence and the fines amounted to 11.5 and 21,000 euros.

But, despite this, he is thinking about how to implement a plan for his own release from prison in 7 years (although he was sentenced to life imprisonment). In addition, the producer of some famous film concern made a “lucrative offer” to Babis – to buy a “life story” from him, on the basis of which to make a colorful film. The pilot refused. But nothing prevents him from changing his mind …. He sits for a long time, but there is no entertainment …
