The biometric watch that Crouch wore on her wrist, which recorded a pulse at a time when her husband's testimony should have shown that there was no sign of life for the 20-year-old. It coincided with a series of murders seemingly related to organised crime from April to June, leading to fears of a new violent crime wave taking over the country.
Specifically, during the period when he claimed to have been completely immobilized and tied up by the burglars, unable to assist his wife as she was being suffocated, police found that he was actively using his phone.
The evidence, however, was clear, and Anagnostopoulos confessed to the crime.
The family's pet husky was also strangled with its own lead and left on a fence.
But today police said Mr Anagnostopoulos had confessed to her murder under questioning.
He was transported to Athens by helicopter from the nearby island of Skiathos.
Anagnostopoulos played the game for as long as he could, even posing as a grieving husband on social media with statements like "sad that our daughter will grow up without remembering her attractive mother, who was the joy of my life".Читайте также: China launches first astronauts to new space station
The disgraced helicopter pilot even drowned the family dog and hung its body from a stair banister to blame it on the burglars and strengthen his story, investigators said.
"That night, we had been fighting since early in the day".
Mr Anagnostopoulos had told police he was tied up by three robbers, while a fourth stood guard, who put a gun to his child's head, strangled his wife, and then got away with £10,000 in cash.
He is believed to have suffered hypoxia - a potentially fatal lack of oxygen - before wriggling free and calling the police in the early hours of May 11.
He said the gang threatened to kill his baby if they did not hand over the money. He said that they often argued in recent months and said what he cared most about was their infant.
