Georgia Anagnostopoulou disowned her identity as the mother of the murderer of Caroline on camera.

The camera crew of the show "Super Katerina" met the mother of Babis Anagnostopoulos and as can be seen in the video, she categorically denied her identity, telling the journalist that she is wrong and that she is not talking to the right person.

The journalist of the show addressed questions about her son Babis. Georgia appeared visibly annoyed and even reached the point of denying that she is his mother.

Dialogue with the journalist:

Georgia Anagnostopoulou: I don't understand you. Who are you talking to? What did you call me?

Journalist: Mrs. Georgia.

Georgia Anagnostopoulou: You are wrong. You are talking to the wrong person

On the other hand, Alexandros Papaioannidis, defence attorney for Babis Anagnostopoulos, confirmed that this is the mother of the murderer and explained the reason why she denied her identity to the media crew.

"There is no doubt that this is the mother of Babis Anagnostopoulos. This is a troubled mother who is devastated by what has happened to her family," said Papaioannidis. "The character that this woman has shown so far is exemplary."

Babis Anagnostopoulos is a 33-year-old helicopter pilot from Greece. His family made international headlines after his 20-year-old wife Caroline Crouch was murdered in their Athens home on May 11, 2021.

He initially claimed they were victims of a gang burglary, but has since confessed to her murder.

How did he meet Caroline Crouch?

Caroline and Anagnostopoulos began dating while she was a teenager.

The pair are believed to have married in Portugal in 2019.

What happened to Caroline Crouch?

On May 11, 2021, Caroline was allegedly tortured and strangled in front of her 11-month-old daughter at her house in an upmarket Athens suburb.

Police found Caroline's lifeless body next to her crying daughter later that morning.

Lydia, the couple's daughter, was not harmed.

A police spokesman said he found Anagnostopoulos handcuffed to the floor near Caroline with duct tape over his eyes and mouth.

The family's pet husky was also strangled with its own lead and left on a fence.

When did Babis Anagnostopoulos confess?

On June 17, 2021, Anagnostopoulos confessed to murdering his wife after she vowed to leave him.

Anagnostopoulos admitted to smothering her after more than eight hours of interrogation in the homicide department of Athens' police headquarters.

The authorities said in a statement: "The culprit is her 33-year-old husband who has confessed to the act."

Police have described him as a "top class actor" after staging the elaborate crime scene and keeping up with the sick charade as the grieving widower for over a month.

The disgraced helicopter pilot even drowned the family dog and hung it up to blame it on the burglars and strengthen his story, investigators said.

According to reports, Anagnostopoulos eventually broke down saying: "That night we had been arguing from early on.

"At some point she threw the child in her cot and she told me to get up and leave the house.

"She pushed me and punched me.

"My judgement became blurred, I strangled her and then I staged the robbery."

In a text message found on Caroline's phone, it had become apparent that the student had threatened to leave the man she had first met as a teenager just hours before her own murder.

Where is Babis Anagnostopoulos now?

In May 2022, Anagnostopoulos was convicted of premeditated murder by three full-time judges and four jurors at the Athens Mixed Jury Court.

He was also found guilty of animal abuse and two counts of perverting the course of justice after his elaborate lies were unmasked.

Anagnostopoulos received a life sentence for the premeditated murder of Caroline and is now in prison.

He was also given 11 years and six months for brutally killing their dog and a fine of €21,000.

His lawyer said the verdict was "expected" and now the 34-year old is expected to live decades behind bars.
