Dr. James Sowa, the chiropractor eliminated at his home office in Bensalem
on Monday, was kept in mind Friday as a male who loved his neighborhood and served it well. In truth, good friends and area officials stated he was a Republican committeeman, who prepared to work Election Day at the surveys Tuesday– simply a day after authorities believe he was killed in his home
. Bensalem Mayor Joseph DiGirolamo saw the doctor at the regional Republican head office Sunday where he stopped to get election products he needed for Tuesday at the Lower East 4 ballot area.
The mayor stated Friday that he was still surprised by the township's loss of such a good man and neighborhood leader.
“He was expected to be at the surveys. It's incredible, terrible. The election fades beside that,” DiGirolamo stated.
Sowa, 64, was eliminated at some point from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday. He died from blunt force trauma to the head, said township cops, who ruled the death a homicide.

Township Council President Edward Kisselback and Councilman Joseph Knowles both stated they understood Sowa and his partner and saw how committed they were to the township and its activities, including occasions for veterans.
“He was a great household man, associated with the community and worked as a chiropractic doctor for years,” Knowles said. “I'm wishing his household.”
Kisselback stated the Sowas were an “iconic” family and served the township well. “I can't picture him having an enemy in any way whatsoever.”
Kisselback urged anybody who saw anything of interest to get in touch with the Bensalem cops as they continue to examine. Police did not release details on the case Friday.
When criminal activity happens, Kisseback stated, “you never ever think it will be close to house, where you'll know the person, or in your neighborhood.”
Poprik stated the Republican Committee hopes “the criminals of this heinous criminal activity are quickly caught and brought to justice.”
