Crimestoppers offering £2k reward for information on Ian Brown’s death

Crimestoppers are offering a reward of up to £2,000 to anyone who can provide information on the hit and run which killed Ian Brown last year.

The father of two was killed on the B734 Girvan to Dailly road on July 28 2012 when he walking home from a night out.

Ian was the main carer for his wife, who suffers from multiple sclerosis, as well as a dad to two sons and support to his elderly mother.

Police want to speak to the driver of a DAF LF45 model large goods vehicle. They believe this may have been a box van delivery vehicle, horse box, recovery vehicle or other large goods vehicle which was on the B734 between 0030 hours and 0300 hours. Anyone who may have passed or seen a vehicle similar to this is asked to contact officers.

They are also asking for someone who has already contacted them anonymously to get back in touch.

And the significant reward will be given for information which leads to an arrest and conviction for this crime.

Crimestoppers’ Scotland Chairman, Alan Gall said: “Ian’s death has left a huge hole in this family that can never be filled. It is hoped that finding answers to what happened will at least help them find some peace. Dailly is such a close-knit community that someone in the village or surrounding area must know who this person is.”

If you have any information on this incident please contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our anonymous online form at

This reward is valid for three months from 05/11/13 and will expire on 05/02/14.
