Craig Mallon – born 3rd February 1986,
died tragically 19th May 2012


‘Killed Abroad’ on BBC One Scotland, Monday 20 August at 9pm

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 will be broadcasting a one-hour documentary, ‘Killed Abroad’, which examines Craig’s, and also 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 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.

The documentary also be available on the BBC iPlayer after beiing broadcast on the BBC in Scotland.

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.
