More about the documentary
Craig Mallon’s young life ended tragically when he was killed in a single punch attack whilst on holiday in Lloret de Mar, Spain on 19th May 2012.
BBC Scotland’s one-hour documentary, ‘Killed Abroad’, examined Craig’s, and also Kirsty Maxwell’s, cases. It discussed 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.
Whilst sad and powerful, we hope the programme will result in:
- the public coming forward with information regarding Craig’s case
- the Spanish authorities providing much needed answers for Craig’s family
- 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 enquiry regarding Craig’s case.
The question as to what happened to Craig remains 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.
Craig’s and Kirsty’s families thank everyone for their amazing continued support.
Help Craig’s family to find answers
Craig Mallon was murdered in the street outside Rockefellers Nightclub in Lloret de Mar, Costa Brava, Spain in the early hours Saturday 19th May 2012, in a motiveless and unprovoked attack.
The person who committed this crime – and his friends who know what happened – have not been traced.
There were also lots of people in the area where Craig was killed. These people could have information which could assist enquiries but have still not come forward, possibly because they think what they saw/heard is not relevant.
This website is intended to assist the investigation and support Craig’s family in their desperate search for the truth about his sad death.
