Phalombe Police Public Relations Officer Jimmy Kapanja identified the deceased as Joseph Madeya from Ntchedzinga village, Traditional Authority (T.A) Mkanda in Mulanje.

According to Kapanja, the deceased went to his girlfriend’s house, where he slept, and the following morning at around 7:00 the girlfriend’s boss noted that the girl did not report for duties which prompted her to make follow-ups.
