Leaks from Murdered Mom’s Diary Spur Greek Investigation

ATHENS – Revelations about trouble in their marriage that appeared in media stories about the murder of Caroline Crouch – to which her husband confessed – led an angry investigator, Vassilis Pliotas to request a probe how it happened.

Crouch, 20, was killed May 11 and after Babis Anagnostopoulos confessed stories appeared in news outlets describing passages from her personal diary detailing just how troubled the marriage was.

Pliotas wrote to the Supreme Court Prosecutor asking for the investigation as Anagnostopoulos was taken into court in a case which has stunned society for its cruelty, Crouch said suffocated to death in a six-minute death struggle.

The diary also showed other sensitive moments in her life and Pliotis said the publication of them was an “affront to the deceased’s personality and may even contribute to generating a favorable climate for the defendant over the course of the criminal process,” that's still ongoing.

He also urged the journalist’s union to look into how any of its members may have gotten their hands on the information but it wasn't said if was tied to the police of other authorities working on the case.
