# A Calabi-Yau manifold with finite simple fundamental group?

Is there a known example of a Calabi-Yau manifold (say, a Kähler compact manifold with $$c_1$$ torsion) with finite simple (non cyclic) fundamental group, for instance $$\mathfrak{A}_5$$? I am pretty sure such an example is not known in dimension 3 (see this paper1), but perhaps it is easier to find it in higher dimension (?).

• @Jason Starr: Well, I didn't rule out holomorphic symplectic manifolds. But I agree that finding a IHS manifold with a free action of $\mathfrak{A}_5$, hence of dimension $2(60k-1)$, is extremely unlikely. I had in mind the odd-dimensional case.
