Detectives investigating a fatal scrambler bike crash in Fazakerley believe the rider may have been involved in a chase shortly beforehand.
A report was received at around 4.40pm, last Tuesday, that an off-road bike had been in collision with a wall on Longmoor Lane. Emergency services attended and the male rider was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
Adam Egan, 24 years, from Liverpool, a father of one young child, died from his injuries on Saturday 31 March in hospital.
Detective Inspector Paul Speight said: "We are investigating the possibility that Mr Egan was being chased shortly before the incident and are very keen to hear from anyone who might have information that could help our enquiries.
"If you noticed anything suspicious, or any vehicles being driven at speed in the area at the time of the incident, please contact police as that information could prove vital.
"Also, if you have any CCTV or dashcam footage taken in the Longmoor Lane area before or after 4.40pm on Tuesday 27 March, that footage could be significant and we would ask you to contact police."
