British Mum, 20, Tortured And Killed In Front Of 11-Month-Old Daughter


The three burglars strangled 20-year-old Caroline Crouch, a UK citizen, to death and forced her to reveal where cash and jewelry were kept after breaking in at 5 am and tying up her pilot husband.

A young mother was tortured to death in front of her 11-month-old daughter and husband after burglars broke into their home in Greece.

Three men strangled 20-year-old Caroline Crouch, a UK citizen, and forced her to reveal where cash and jewelry were kept after breaking in at 5 am and tying up her pilot husband.

Her husband Charalambos Anagnostopoulos, 32, survived and the attackers made off with £13,000 in cash and jewellery

But he had to watch on in horror as his wife was tortured according to reports from Greek publication Proto Thema.

“It was shortly after five. I saw three hooded men. One was tall. They shouted and threatened in broken Greek,” the site reports him as telling police.

“They tied me to a chair and then went on my wife.”

Their baby was reportedly found crying next to her mother’s dead body.

A senior police investigator told The Times:

“The woman appears to have been strangled by the robbers in their bid to locate jewellery and cash the couple may have had in their home.

“We are waiting for the coroner’s report to establish if there was any other type of assault.”

The thieves also killed the family’s dog and left it hanging on the fence of the two-storey house.

According to  Proto Thema, four men were involved in the raid and three broke into the house while the other stood guard

The men were all wearing hoods and spoke broken Greek.

Police said it appears that the robbers were experienced and likely watched the couple for some time before the raid.

Mrs Crouch was a student at the University of Piraeus

In Greece, gang killings are normal but the strangling of the woman in front of her child has led to shock in the country

Officers are still investigating the case.
