CAROLINE Crouch was ''shocked by something terrible before she was killed'' and her coded diary might give the answers, sources have claimed.

Cops previously revealed that the 20-year-old was keeping a secret diary, to report the horrific abuse she was suffering at the hands of her twisted husband Babis Anagnostopoulos.

It is believed that the young mum used a type of codethat contained English and Greek abbreviations and different coloured pens to prevent her husband from reading the heartbreaking journal.

It appears that she used code for the word "beating" and symbols to brand her husband  a "dangerous man."

Meanwhile, crime journalist Angeliki Nikolouli, claimed a source told her that ''something had shocked Caroline before she was killed''.

She said: ''Had she seen anything that she shouldn't have? My source is very significant, but I have to respect them and not tell more.

''However, something had shocked the girl.''

A police officer has revealed what they believe some of Caroline's shorthand means, reports the Mail.

The cop told the paper part of what they had deciphered, including a recurring abbreviation of "DG" next to Greek symbol for gamma, an expletive in the country equivalent to the F-word.

Police believe this stands for "F****** dangerous guy".

Two crosses, "XX", also appear throughout the diary, cops says, which they suspect is short for "Xylo" in Greek, or "beating" in English.

Detectives have also interpreted the initial "M" to be short for "Malakas", or "w*****" in English.

Meanwhile, cops believe the letters "PP" stands for "Palio Poustis", meaning "Dirty Old F*****".

It is believed that the diary entries reveal disturbing details of the couple's abusive marriage.

However Greek prosecutors have banned further publication of the secret diary, arguing that they could "offend the victim’s memory" and prejudice the trial.

In one leaked entry, written last July, a month after giving birth to her daughter, Lydia, Caroline writes of her plans to move out of their home.

In December of 2019, she wrote: "I fought with Babi again. This time it was serious.

"I hit him, I cursed at him and he broke down the door.

"All I wanted was for him to ask how I am when I woke up. I woke up so weak and tired.

"I am thinking of leaving. I am thinking of going to my sister, I don't know if I can keep going with Babi.

"I love him so much that I can't leave him even though this relationship hurts me."

Caroline writes in another entry in 2019: "Last night we fought with Babi because I had a meltdown because of my hormones.

"I yelled at him and hit him and told him I don't want our baby…

"I am not well, I am very upset, I know he would never hurt my baby.

"My love for her is stronger than anything in the world.”

On July 3, 2020, when her baby daughter Lydia was a month old Caroline wrote: "Today my little one is a month old – it's also the day I told Babi I want to leave… I feel awful."

The diary includes several entries where Caroline blames her hormones for the couple's arguments and says she feels "embarrassed" her hormones affect her so strongly.

Meanwhile, Caroline's father, David Crouch, 78, told the Mail that police had informed him that the investigation was still at an early stage and that they ''had a long way to go'' before they found the ''true motive'' of his daughter's murder.

''The only commitment they were prepared to make was they were looking at motives other than jealousy and possessiveness,'' Mr Crouch told the outlet.

''They gave me no indication as to what direction their investigation was heading.''

It comes as he and his wife Susan, requested full custody of her 11-month-old granddaughter Lydia while Anagnostopoulos' parents are believed to be requesting joint custody of Lydia suggesting she could split her time between Alonissos – Caroline's final resting place -and Athens.

Babis who confessed to strangling his wife after she threatened to leave him with their baby daughter Lydia is currently in the so-called VIP ward of Korydallos prison.

It's reported he plans to use "good behaviour" as a way to get special treatment.

 The twisted 33-year-old shamelessly claimed he is ''mourning'' the loss of his wife in prison.

Speaking to Star from inside the prison he said: ''I have been mourning the loss of my wife since the first moment and I still do today.

''I am mourning for everything that has happened.

''I destroyed my family and lost everything. I am waiting for the case to be processed for my daughter's sake.

''All I truly want is the best for my child.

''I am sorry and my apology is genuine.''
