SUSQUEHANNA TWP., Pa. -

The death of a Perry County man has been ruled a homicide, authorities said Monday.

Police found the body of James Tommor wrapped in a tarp behind a utility shed near a Days Inn motel in Susquehanna Twp., Dauphin Co., near Harrisburg, Saturday morning.

Tommor, 65, of Duncannon, died of multiple injuries, the Dauphin County coroner said.  

Blood was found in the motel room where Tommor and his son, Trent Tolene, stayed before checking out Thursday, said investigators, adding that they believe the blood came from Tommor.

Officers arrested Tolene, 24, Friday night on DUI charges after a brief chase on Interstate 81, said police. Tolene was committed to the Dauphin County Prison on $250,000 bail.

Tommer's driver's license indicated that he was from Allentown, said police, adding that they believe it may have been a fake address.
