Bethlehem native's death ruled a homicide

There's a new development in a death investigation just outside Harrisburg.

The coroner has ruled James Tommor's death a homicide. According to family members, Tommor grew up in Bethlehem, and his brother still lives there.

Tommor's body was found Saturday wrapped in a tarp outside a hotel in Susquehanna Township, Dauphin County.

Investigators say Tommor and his son, Trent Tolene, were staying there before checking out on Thursday -- the same day Tommor was reported missing.

Investigators say they found blood in the room the men were staying in.

On Friday, police arrested Tolene for DUI after a short case.

Police originally said Tommor's driver's license indicated he was from Allentown, but his last known address was in Duncannon, Perry Co.

No arrests have been made in connection with Tommer's death.
