Upon entering the residence, police discovered the deceased female, as stated in the release. On May 16, a Canada-wide warrant was issued for Lal Kannampuzha Poulose, aged 31, on the charge of first-degree murder. Investigators suspect he has fled the country and may currently be residing in India.

Meanwhile, Dona's mortal remains were brought to Chalakudy after 18 days and the cremation will be held on Sunday (May 26). Her family demanded that a look-out notice be issued for the accused husband. It has been reported that Lal absconded with Rs 1.5 crore and Dona's phone before boarding a flight to Delhi.

Dona's father, Sajan Francis, revealed that on May 7, Lal, Dona's husband, sent an email to his son Deljo, who is also in Canada, stating that they both intended to commit suicide. Deljo immediately alerted the police and rushed to their house. "About an hour later, Deljo called us and informed us that the authorities confirmed Dona's death and that Lal was missing. It was only later that we learned it was a murder, and Lal had fled to India," Francis recounted.

Lal, who was involved in money lending and gambling, reportedly quarreled with Dona. It is suspected that Dona's efforts to prevent him from gambling again led to the altercation and ultimately to her murder.
