A new true crime documentary looking into the tragic death of Kirsty Maxwell, who fell from a balcony whilst on a hen party in Spain, is set to air this week.
True Life Crime UK: Kirsty Maxwell Hen Night Horror will explore the circumstances leading up to the tragic moment the 27-year-old newylwed plunged to her death.
Kirsty was found by a swimming pool after falling from a tenth-floor balcony in an apartment block in Benidorm back in 2017.
Her death was ruled as an accident at the time but a lot of mystery still surrounds Kirsty's final few hours and her family and friends have many questions that need answering.
The documentary will examine new evidence and will raise further questions surrounding Kirsty's tragic death. Her grieving parents Brian and Denise Curry and her husband Adam hope it will put pressure on the Spanish authorities to look into the case again.
Her friends and family have been fighting for justice and have heavily criticised how the Spanish authorities handled the case including the disappearance of possibly vital DNA evidence.
Kirsty was on a friend's hen do when she fell from the balcony of an apartment occupied by five British men. There were many theories considered at the time, from sleepwalking to a prank gone wrong to misadventure through intoxication. A Benidorm judge ruled in September 2019 that the men had nothing to do with Kirsty's death and it was an accident.
But Kirsty's family and friends aren't satisfied with any of these conclusions and have been pressing for the Spanish police to follow up all the potential leads and clues in order to get some answers on how and why Kirsty died.
The documentary will follow MTV correspondent Linda Adey as she searches for the truth. It's the second episode in the True Life Crime UK series which investigates four stories of lives taken too soon. Other cases investigated in the series include Jayden Parkinson, Champion Ganda and James Brindley.
True Crime UK continues Wednesdays at 10pm on MTV
