I suffocated my British wife with pillow, Greek husband confesses


British wife Greek husband Crouch Anagnostopoulos

Following a month-long investigation, a Greek national, Babis Anagnostopoulos, has confessed to killing his 20-year-old British wife, Caroline Crouch, for threatening to leave him.

Metro UK reported that the 33-year-old Anagnostopoulos had initially told police his partner was murdered by robbers who had tied him up at their home in the affluent suburb of Glyka Nera, near Athens, in the early hours of May 11.

Events took a twist on Thursday after a six-hour interrogation on Thursday night by Hellenic Police. He was forced to confess to the murder after the interrogators confronted him with the evidence from a smartwatch data discovered by detectives which contradicted his initial testimony that he had been bound and gagged by three assailants.
