17-year-old Teen Found Guilty Of The Murder Of Malcolm Mide-Madariola

A 17-year-old teenager has been found guilty of murder and possession of an offensive weapon at the Old Bailey.

Malcolm Mide-Madariola, who was also 17 years old was stabbed in the heart near Clapham South Tube station on 2 November 2018.

The attack was launched following a confrontation with a group of  students after college. The culprit was found guilty of murdering the student with a hunting knife near the South London Underground station.

Police and paramedics rushed to the scene and administered emergency first aid before taken him to a south London hospital.

Autopsy report showed the extent of his injuries. He sustained stab wounds to his body including once in the heart.

The court heard that the killing came two days after an incident at the south London sixth form college where Malcolm was a student.

On 31 October, there had allegedly been “unfriendly eye contact” and “an exchange of words” between Malcolm’s friend and the 17-year-old defendant after they passed in the corridor.

“Whatever happened that day appears to be the reason for the confrontation and murder of Malcolm two days later.”

Sentencing will take place on 5 July 2019.
