Pal pays for bar victim's US funeral.

Byline: Jack Mathieson

A FRIEND of a Scot whose wife was shot dead in a bar robbery in the US has offered to pay for her funeral.

Kelly Fallon, 44, was one of five people killed inside Fero's Bar and Grill in Denver on October 17.

Police believe they were shot and the premises burned to cover up the crime.

American Kelly, who married Tam Hill from Edinburgh three years ago after meeting in Las Vegas, was buried in a plot next to her mother and brother.

Tommy Ross said he wanted to pick up Tam's PS4000 funeral bill.

Speaking from the US, Tam said he was "flabbergasted" by his pal's generosity.

He added: "It's unbelievable.

He's a good friend - I'll see him when I get back to Scotland. It's the type of guy that he is."

Three men have been arrested and accused of carrying out the murders.
