Brit mum strangled in front of baby daughter by robbers in horror Greece crime

A British mum strangled to death in front of her baby daughter in Greece has been pictured.

Caroline Crouch, 20, was tortured and murdered by three robbers in her home in the Glyka Nera suburb of Athens.

They reportedly forced her to reveal where valuables were kept in the two-storey house, before fleeing with £13,000 and jewellery.

The hooded robbers first strangled and hanged the family’s dog to stop it from raising the alarm on Tuesday, May 11.

They smashed a window and entered the property at around 5am while a fourth man stood guard outside.

Once inside, the trio tied up Caroline’s pilot husband Charalambos Anagnostopoulos, 32, to a chair in the bedroom.

The robbers then found Caroline, a student at the University of Piraeus, in the attic with her 11-month-old baby.

They tied up and tortured her in a bid to get her to reveal where the valuables were, before they strangled her.

The killers left the scene with the valuables and her husband managed to untie himself at around 6am, according to Proto Thema.

He is said to have then discovered his wife’s body face down with the crying baby next to her.

The pilot reportedly phoned police and told them that “robbers killed my wife”.

He added: “I saw three hooded men. One was tall. They shouted and threatened in broken Greek.

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

Police arrived at the scene and the baby was taken to a children’s hospital.

They are scanning CCTV in the area in a bid to figure out how the criminals escaped.

Authorities say the robbers were experienced and probably knew about the money in the house so targeted the couple, local media reported.

Caroline was born in Greece but had a British passport, according to reports.
