Detectives have identified the 27-year-old man found dead outside a house in Goole, as Dale Partington from Snaith. Three people have been arrested on suspicion of murder.
They are a 37-year-old man, a 25-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman all from the Snaith area. Tests have revealed Mr Partington died from stab wounds. The scene at St. Lawrence Avenue and a house on Chestnut Close in Snaith have been cordoned off and forensic inquiries are on-going.
“My thoughts are with the family of Dale Partington at this terribly sad time and specially trained officers are with his family, offering support, during this difficult time.“We have arrested three people for murder but we have a lot more enquiries to do in order to establish Dale’s whereabouts and what happened to him leading to his body being discovered and I am appealing to anyone who saw anything suspicious in the area to contact us”.
