Investigators, family baffled after well-liked chiropractor found murdered in home office

A Pennsylvania chiropractor was found dead of an apparent murder in his home office this week.

According to WPVI, police responded to a call about a medical emergency at an address in Bensalem on Monday, and found the body of 64-year-old James Sowa, a chiropractor who ran his business out of his residence.

Sowa reportedly suffered blunt force trauma to the head, and his death was declared a homicide. Police do not appear to have identified any suspects.

“It’s a bizarre case,” Fred Harran, the director of Bensalem Township Police Department, told WPVI.

The victim lived at the home with this wife, who had gone to work Monday morning, before Sowa was killed. The WPVI report indicates that the victim’s wife, Barbara, claims to have no indication of why her husband was killed.

“Who could do that to him, he was the nicest person ever,” Barbara Sowa said in an interview with the news station. “He would have helped anybody, his patients, he would run to anyone’s house and help them with anything they needed.”

Sowa’s son echoed his mother’s sentiments, and pleaded for anyone with possible information to come forward.

“We love him, and if you’re out there, and you did this, you know we just want you to come forward, and turn yourself in. Our dad did not deserve this, he was a good man,” Kurt Sowa told WPVI.

Anyone with information or who witnesses suspicious activity in the area on Monday is urged to call Bensalem Police at 215-633-3719.
