Application will not delete and not in Finder

Hi guys

I'm trying to delete an application, however it doesn't seem to delete. I've tried dragging in into the trash from the launchpad to no avail. It doesn't appear under Applications in Finder either.

Any suggestions?

The Launchpad is not a place where applications are stored, it is only a customizable (to a degree) place to sort applications and have them viewed in a fancy way.

Properly installed applications go into the Applications folder (Finder > CMD+SHIFT+A).
Best way to FULLY DELETE a program without the need of any additional, inefficient applications
