Her victim died on the phone to 999 - #DEAD2ME


Simon Gilchrist's tragic murder at the hands of his girlfriend Caroline Mawhood represents one of 700,000 male victims of abuse. Having known Caroline since he was a teenager, both he and his family thought they could trust her. That illusion shattered one night in 2004 when she attacked him. With testimony from those closest to each case, #DEAD2ME will explore the stories of ten couples from all over Britain whose relationships were borne out of the digital age. While these relationships started promisingly enough, they would all take a turn for the tragic, and in each case a running commentary provided by their digital dialogue and postings reveals how and why.
