Keely's Story – Chapter Three. The final episode
Main article content
On day 13 of the 16 days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence we’re sharing the third and final chapter of Keely’s Story.
We have re-released the videos as part of the campaign, but also as we are close to the second anniversary of her death.
Keely McGrath was 30-years old when she was murdered by her partner Anthony Davis in their home in South Normanton on 13 December 2018
She had suffered from coercive and controlling behaviour and domestic abuse in silence for several years, her family unaware of what she was going through.
In Chapter Three, you can watch her parents, Martin and Claire, reflect on legacy of their daughter’s death.
They hope that her Keely’s Story doesn’t in fact end here, but that by speaking out they can stop someone else from suffering in silence, and help others to spot the signs in their own loved ones.
It will always be a difficult time of year for Keely’s family, and we are so grateful for them allowing us to share her story again in the hope it will help make a difference to others. Our thoughts are with them.

Davis, 40, of Alfred Street, South Normanton, was found guilty by a jury and jailed for life, with a minimum of 24 years.
