Caroline Crouch’s killer husband tried to fast-track plans to build dream home just days after smothering her


THE CALLOUS killer of Caroline Crouch tried to fast-track the construction of his dream home just a few days after he strangled her.

 Babis Anagnostopoulos visited a plot of land the couple had bought, planning to build a house, just days after he murdered his 20-year-old wife.

The 33-year-old pilot met with an engineering team alongside his architect father,to discuss the construction of his dream home –a three-bedroom prefab east of Athens.

The plot of land was bought on Anagnostopoulos name for £47,000 (€55,000) and according to  Alpha TV about £42,000 (€50,000) came from Caroline’s mum.

The outlet reported that the couple needed another £163,000 (€190,000) to start the construction and took a loan for £137,000 (€160,000).

Greek media claim that the self-confessed killer’s shocking behaviour is further proof of his motives, despite the pilot insisting the murder was no premeditated.

”More evidence of the cynicism and insensitivity of the wife killer comes to light after Caroline’s murder,” To Vima wrote on Monday.

”It comes after Caroline’s family lawyer revealed that the self-confessed murderer asked for Caroline’s  mother to pay for her coffin at the funeral.”

Thanassis Haramanis, the lawyer for Caroline’s family, confirmed that the pilot asked the Crouch family to pay for her coffin.

He told The Sun: “This man has no shame.

“First he killed Caroline, then he asked her parents for money to pay for her coffin and to fly her body from Athens for the funeral.

“They gave him 4,000 euros.

“He paid nothing.”

Anagnostopoulos told shocked members of the team that it would have been ”Caroline’s wish” to continue with the construction and even went so far as to say to them ”I am a good man,” SKAI news reported.

When it turned out that the plot wasn’t connected to the power grid and electricity supplies posed a problem, the pilot urged the team to ”accelerate” the process of  applying for a permit with the local town hall.

Back in May, when the twisted killer had claimed that a group of thugs had broken into the couple’s home, it was revealed that the pair had withdrew £86,000 from the bank to purchase a plot of land in Drafi to build their dream home.

Meanwhile, the pilot’s luxury lifestyle is under investigation amid claims he is involved in drug trafficking.

It comes as Caroline Crouch’s parents were granted today the full custody of their granddaughter Lydia.

The one-year-old is expected to join Susan and David Crouch in Alonnisos on Wednesday while her father has been stripped off his parental rights

Caroline’s mum had previously requested full custody of her granddaughter so that she is “not known as a killer’s daughter”.

The Crouch family lawyer Thanasis  Harmanis said: ”The court has accepted our request. We were always confident it would. 

”Lydia will be collected on Wednesday by her grandmother mother and go back to Alonissos where she will be surrounded with the love of her family and local people.

”Everyone there loved Caroline and it is right Lydia is there. David and Susan are delighted with the news.”

A prosecutor ruled that Anagnostopoulos’ parents who had also fought for custody of the child would be able to see her five days a month between 10am and 2pm – but only in Alonissos.

The parents of the pilot had requested a joint custody and applied to look after her for at least six months of the year.

It currently remains unknown if they will try to overturn the judgement – legally they can apply against it within 30 days.

The two families – and particularly the two grandmothers – are said to have “excellent relations.”
