Lincolnshire Police have officially named the man who was found dead by a roadside in the county this weekend.

Chase Tate, 23, died on the A1104 at Miles Cross Hill, Ulceby on Saturday, January 7.

Police continue to investigate the circumstances of his death.

Chase’s devastated family have urged anyone with information to get in touch with police as soon as possible.

Although Chase used the surname Tate, he was formally known as Chase North.

Sergeant Dave Mitchell, the senior investigating officer, said: “Chase was 23-years-old, he did not deserve to die.”

“Someone and probably more than one person knows what happened that has led to his death early on Saturday morning.

“I cannot believe anyone wants his death on their conscience. I am very open minded about what has happened, it was dark, Chase has been described as being unsteady on his feet and wearing dark clothing.

“I appeal to anyone who knows anything to come and speak to us.

I ask that anyone who had a visitor to their home or work, maybe a delivery or friends or relatives visiting who may have travelled on the A1104 in the area of Ulceby, between 4 and 6am on Saturday morning to call in.

“Please think if you know anyone who could help us with information, let me decide if this is relevant information.

“My officers are working tirelessly to identify the circumstances which have led to the untimely and very sad death of Chase Tate.”

Anyone with information should contact Lincolnshire Police on 101, quoting incident 54 of January 7.
