    Police are investigating the death of a man whose body was found wrapped in a tarp outside a Pennsylvania hotel where authorities say he and his son had been living.

    Investigators say the body of 65-year-old James Edward Tommor was discovered behind a utility shed near the Days Inn in Susquehanna Township on Saturday. Detective Michael Mull says the death is being treated as suspicious pending an autopsy Monday.

    Authorities say Tommor's son, 24-year-old Trent Tolene, was arrested Friday night after a police pursuit on Interstate 81. He's being held on $250,000 bail on DUI and theft charges.

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

    It wasn't immediately clear if Tolene had an attorney.

    Earlier this year Tolene pleaded guilty to trespassing, according to court records.
