Mother of Kirsty Maxwell speaks out for the first time since unexplained death


THE MOTHER of tragic Scot Kirsty Maxwell has spoken out for the first time since her daughter’s unexplained death.

Kirsty’s family flew to Benidorm after the 27-year-old’s fall from a tenth floor balcony at the Payma Apartments on April 29.

Hundreds of posters and leaflets were distributed to those living in the area while the family also visited a variety of people and organisations including Victim Support.

Speaking for the first time to the Scottish press, Kirsty’s mother Denise said the family are returning to Scotland with renewed hope but reiterated she will return to Spain if the case is not solved.

She said: ‘We have been putting leaflets around the pubs.

‘A lot of the people are Scottish and Spanish. They all know about it.

‘They all know Kirsty’s face from the picture.

‘We would like to think they would get in touch.’

During their return to Benidorm, the family tried to find the person who took a photograph of her body lying next to a swimming pool.

Consultant David Swindle said: ‘It is a devastating thing for the family to see. This could be something that leads to more information that helps gets the truth.’

‘We are not satisfied that the police have interviewed everyone that stayed in these apartments and that is a big issue.’
