The death of a man found wrapped in a tarp outside a Harrisburg area hotel has been ruled a homicide, according to the Dauphin County coroner.

Coroner Graham Hetrick said he made the ruling Monday after said an autopsy on 65-year-old James Tommor.

The cause of death was multiple traumatic injuries, Hetrick said.

Tommor's body was found Saturday behind a utility shed near the Days Inn in Susquehanna Township.

His biological son, 24-year-old Trent Tolene, was arrested Friday night after a police pursuit on Interstate 81. He was being held on $250,000 bail on DUI and other charges.

Investigators said blood was found in the room where the men were staying and they believe it came from Tommor.

Dauphin County District Attorney Ed Marsico said Tolene is considered a suspect in Tommer's death.
