Her widower Adam, 28, who married Ms Maxwell just seven months earlier, said: ‘We made a promise as a family that we would leave no stone unturned for Kirsty.
‘This was my Kirsty. The circumstances surrounding it were impossible to believe.
‘It was just me and the rest of the family doing the investigation as such, which was hugely difficult.
‘At the same time we were organising Kirsty’s funeral, I was organising second autopsies to be done.
Tests have confirmed that Ms Maxwell was more than three times the drink-drive limit when she died, but had not taken any drugs.
Her family have also blasted any suggestion that she jumped.
