Caroline Crouch's husband seen in 'VIP' prison wing as shameless pilot to use 'good behaviour for special treatment'

CAROLINE Crouch's depraved husband has been spotted in the "VIP" prison wing as the pilot plots to use "good behaviour for special treatment".

Shameless Babis Anagnostopoulos has been behind bars for several days in Greece, and has been described as "calm'' and ''distant".

The twisted 33-year-old is being held in the so-called "VIP" wing of the prison in Korydallos, where he shares a cell with three others, reports Protothema.

It has two bunk beds, a refrigerator, and a separate bathroom.

The wing houses "low risk" inmates and a picture has emerged of Anagnostopoulos in its courtyard behind barbed wire, reports Star.

It's reported he plans to use "good behaviour" as a way to get special treatment.

Meanwhile, police have revealed they believe Caroline was hiding her diary from her husband, which she had penned heartbreaking entries to record the horrifying abuse she suffered.

"The only person she could possibly have been hiding it from was her husband," a cop told the Mail.

Detectives believe it was written in a form of code, made up on English and Greek abbreviations.

An officer told the paper part of what they had deciphered, including a recurring abbreviation of "DG" next to Greek symbol for gamma, an expletive in the country equivalent to the F-word.

Police believe this stands for "F****** dangerous guy".

Two crosses, "XX", also appear throughout the diary, cops says, which they suspect is short for "Xylo" in Greek, or "beating" in English.

Some of the excerpts depict a rocky and controlling marriage with Anagnostopoulos, which led her to threaten to leave him. 

It comes after he shamelessly claimed he is ''mourning'' the loss of his wife in prison.

In a sickening bid to gain sympathy, Anagnostopoulos keeps repeating that he regrets killing his 20-year-old wife and emphasises his baby daughter is the only one that matters.

The pilot who confessed to strangling his wife in a fit of a rage last week, is currently in hell-hole Korydallos prison, home to terrorists and rapists.

Speaking to Star from inside the prison he said: ''I have been mourning the loss of my wife since the first moment and I still do today.

''I am mourning for everything that has happened.

''I destroyed my family and lost everything. I am waiting for the case to be processed for my daughter's sake.

''All I truly want is the best for my child.

''I am sorry and my apology is genuine.''

His comments come after he tried to blame Caroline and claimed she had started becoming aggressive after the loss of their first baby.

He explained how that the 20-year-old Caroline went to see a psychologist but then stopped.

It was then her "explosions" that she had with him that made him kill her, the warped husband claimed.

"Caroline became pregnant a few weeks after we got married," he told a judge in an Athens court.

"Unfortunately, when she was three months pregnant, Caroline miscarried, and since then her behaviour had been gradually changing.

"But the catalyst for the change in Caroline’s behaviour was the miscarriage of her first pregnancy.

"From that moment on, she started to have aggressive outbursts and explosions towards me."

Anagnostopoulos went on to say that what he did was for the safety of their daughter.

"Again, I apologise and I would like to point out that my only thought and guide to what happened next was my only daughter," he said.

Meanwhile, Thanassis Katerinopoulos, a retired brigadier who heads the Greek Police Union has revealed a mysterious trip that one of the couple took prior to the murder, might be relevant to the case.

Speaking to Ant1 , he said that a witness has come forward and claimed that either Anagnostopoulos or Caroline ''travelled to Crete during lockdown, alongside a third person, to see a house for renting,'' ta Nea report.

Caroline's family's lawyer has revealed that a battle is underway for the custody of eleventh-month-old, Lydia.

Speaking to "Good morning Greece" Thanasis Harmanis said if an agreement over the child’s future couldn’t be found, Susan and David Crouch would apply to the courts, and the prosecutor in charge of the minors division, for consent to look after the little girl.   

“We believe that the family environment on Alonissos is absolutely suitable at least for the first years of the child’s upbringing,” he told the TV show ruling out the child being sent to a foster home or orphanage. 

Taking care of Lydia would be a form of consolation for the family, he said. 

“I can tell you what word-for-word, what the mother said to me,” he added referring to Susan Crouch, Caroline’s distraught mum.

“He took my child from me, if I lose my grandchild it will be the last shot for me.” 

Lydia, who was found by police lying next to Caroline’s lifeless body on the morning that her father strangled her mother, is currently being cared for by the self-confessed killer's parents in Athens.

But Harmanis reiterated that the two grandmothers had “good relations.” 

“There is communication between the two families. If we can come to a compromise solution we will announce it to the prosecutor, if not, we will submit our request for exclusive custody [to be given to Susan].” 

The lawyer said there was recognition that at some point Lydia would begin to ask questions. 

“The years pass. At some point, she will want answers and of course, we will need the help of experts,” he said.

Emphasising his role as Lydia’s father, he has also said Anagnostopoulos wants to have a hand in looking after her from behind bars if, as expected, he is convicted.  

“His only concern is little Lydia who he wants to continue to see and to bring up when he gets out of jail,” Anagnostopoulos’ lawyer Alexandros Papaioannou said.  

But legal experts have called his stance a ruse – saying the pilot wants to exploit his position as a father to get parental leave and even shorten his sentence.
