Lydia, daughter of the late Caroline Crouch and convicted murderer Babis Anagnostopoulos, is said to be in the Philippines since Sunday evening, specifically in Manila.

According to The Newspaper, the parents of Caroline Crouchs made the decision to leave Greece, wanting their two-year-old granddaughter to grow up in a safe environment, away from everything that reminds her of the murder of her mother.

Susan and David Crouch's main priority is little Lydia and they want her to grow up with the family of Caroline's half-sister Donna in the Philippines.

Also, according to the same media, Caroline's parents are thinking of changing the child's last name, while David Crouch has declared that he will do everything in his power to prevent Babis Anagnostopoulos from seeing little Lydia again.

The pilot's parents by court order can see Lydia for the last five days of each month from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. It is expected that a request will be filed with the court to make the communication via Skype.

Anagnostopoulos is serving a life sentence for suffocating 20-year-old Caroline in front of their 11-month-old daughter in May last year.

Caroline had been tortured and suffocated with a pillow at their Athens home, with Anagnostopoulos staging a robbery and even hanging the couple's dog Roxy in a bid to cover his tracks.

The 34-year-old claimed that an Albanian gang had been responsible for Caroline's death, only to eventually admit to the killing as his web of lies was exposed.

Anagnostopoulos' lawyer told The Sun that his client had been attacked in a notorious Athens prison.

In one incident, which was narrowly prevented by prison guards, Papaioannidis said an inmate had told him that he had sought him out and planned to kill him.

“Reports that he said 'I want to kill him. I came from another prison. I’ve been looking for him'” are true," Papaioannidis told the outlet.
