TODAY, April 29, marks exactly two-years since the suspicious death of Kirsty Maxwell in the British favourite holiday resort of Benidorm on Spain’s Costa Blanca.
And during the period April 27 -30 members of the review team supporting Kirsty’s family have been in the town to talk to tourists who holiday there at the same time every year and speaking to locals in an effort to trace witnesses and obtain information to assist the ongoing court-led investigation.
Kirsty’s family who will be having private time together have requested privacy at this particularly poignant, reflective time.
The team says: “Two years we have been fighting for answers and justice, two years we have been fighting to get to the truth that led to the brutal death of our beautiful girl Kirsty, two years of heartbreak fighting to find and present the missing pieces of this nightmare puzzle that will help explain the circumstances and events that occurred within the eleven hours Kirsty spent in Benidorm that finally lead to her suspicious death.
“We know there are people out there who have yet to come forward with information that could assist us as a family getting closer to the truth. Please help us.”
Investigator David Swindle said: “It is shocking that Kirsty’s family have had to keep pushing and pushing for answers and basic lines of enquiry to be progressed.
“We know there were people at Hotel Presidente and Payma Apartments with information which can assist. Some of our team will be speaking to tourists and locals in the hope of jogging people’s memories.”
Kirsty Maxwell, a 27-year-old from West Lothian, was on a hen party with friends in Benidorm when she plunged to her death on April 29, 2017.
It is known Kirsty had been with friends before she apparently left them for a different hotel room occupied by five men she did not know.
Joseph Graham, Callum Northridge, Ricky Gammon, Anthony Holehouse and Daniel Bailey were part of a group of 50 men on holiday together at the time of Mrs Maxwell’s death.
The men, all from Nottingham, have given statements to Spanish police, but Mrs Maxwell’s family claim they ‘can’t grieve’ because they say the men’s stories do not add up.
Kirtsy’s husband Adam, who she married just six months before her death, has said that the circumstances surrounding it were “impossible to believe” and that they still are.

In April the judge handling the case signalled she was close to ending her probe saying: “To date no new evidence that allows me to attribute the commission of a specific criminal act to the people under investigation has been obtained.”
However, the family has reissued their plea to the public: “Please help us push for answers and share and publish the information and appeal points which are on our various social media sites.”
They ask for any information you think may be relevant to be sent to their confidential email address [email protected] or phone / text (0044) 07376 040519
