BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — The suspicious death of a Bensalem chiropractor is now a homicide investigation. Police say 64-year-old James Sowa was found inside his home, which also served as his chiropractic office on the 3100 block of Hulmeville Road.
Police say they feel fairly comfortable that the community is not at risk. Though they can’t get into too many details, they’re hoping for some leads.
“Everybody in the community likes him. He was well-known,” said Bensalem Police Department Director Fred Harran.
It was a gruesome discovery for a son in Bensalem on Monday afternoon.
Sowa was found dead in his home, which he also used for his chiropractic practice on the 3100 block of Hulmeville Road.
“We want to find the individual or individuals responsible for this, for killing Jim. We want to find them, bring them to justice and get them locked up as soon as possible,” Harran said.
Bensalem police say Sowa’s cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head.
So far no arrests have been made but police believe someone in the community had to see something.
“Hulmeville Road is right off of Street Road, for people who don’t know where the 3100 block is. It’s just north of Street Road. That’s a heavy traffic area,” Harran said.
As police continue to search for clues, they’re pleading for your help.
“Somebody saw something that day — somebody running from the house, something that didn’t look normal.”
Call police if you think you saw anything suspicious.
