Family: Man, killed in Dauphin Co., was from Bethlehem

Initial confusion about a homicide victim's ties to the Lehigh Valley has been cleared up.
James Tommor's brother, Charles, says he's a Bethlehem native.
On Saturday James' body was found wrapped in a tarp outside a hotel in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County.
That's not far from his last known residence in nearby Duncannon., Perry County.
Police also say blood was found in a room at the hotel where Tommor was staying his son, Trent Tolene.
Tolene was arrested for DUI on Friday.
Charles Tommor says his brother was a Temple graduate and a former real estate appraiser who was just trying to get by.
"When the real estate market went belly up he got himself a commercial drivers license and he was making as much money as he could," said Tommor.
The investigation is ongoing.
No arrests have been made.
