‘Killed Abroad’, BBC One Scotland, Monday 20 August at 9pm
BBC Scotland will be showing a one-hour documentary, ‘Killed Abroad’, which examines Craig Mallon’s and Kirsty Maxwell’s cases. It discusses wider issues about families losing loved ones abroad in terrible circumstances, who are then abandoned by their governments, leaving them to do their own investigations in countries abroad.
This will be a very sad and powerful programme, which we hope will result in:
- the public coming forward with information regarding Craig’s and Kirsty’s cases
- the Spanish authorities providing much needed answers for Craig’s and Kirsty’s families
- change regarding the support provided to UK families losing loved ones abroad to homicide or in suspicious or unexplained circumstances
Social media appeals and support from the public have played a major role in identifying potential evidence and pushing the authorities in Spain to progress lines of inquiry regarding Craig’s and Kirsty’s cases.
The questions as to what happened to Craig and to Kirsty remain unanswered. We hope that this documentary will help to obtain those answers.
As there will be a lot of marketing, media and social media activity around this documentary, we would appreciate everyone using any social media opportunities to help push awareness of it.
The documentary also be available on the BBC iPlayer after beiing broadcast on the BBC in Scotland.
Kirsty’s and Craig’s families thank everyone for their amazing continued support.
