Thugs on Wednesday killed a British national who owned Lake View Resort in Nkhatabay.
Police have identified the victim as Alan Michael Fay aged 57.
Fay’s wife Tina Kamanga (Nyakaweta) told police that her husband left home at around 8PM to escort his resort manager who stays about one kilometer away from the resort.
Kamanga then felt suspicious as her husband was not returning home.
The woman and other employees of the resort formed a search party and started looking for Fay.
He was found in the early hours of Thursday dumped in the bush some metres from the road with deep cuts in the head and face.
It was also noted that the assailants went away with two mobile phones.
Police visited the scene and the body was taken to Mzuzu central hospital for postmortem.
Meanwhile, the law enforcers are looking for murderers and have appealed for information from the general public.
