TOWNVILLE, Pa. (AP) - An autopsy was set on a 74-year-old man found dead in his northwestern Pennsylvania home.

Crawford County Coroner Scott Schell isn’t saying how authorities believe 74-year-old Kenneth Halsaver was killed, only that the case is being treated as a homicide.

Halsaver’s body was found by a relative about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday in his home in Townville. That’s about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.

Halsaver’s co-workers became concerned when he didn’t report for work Tuesday morning, and contacted the relative who went to check on him.

State Trooper Stephen Oler of the Corry barracks is leading the investigation.

He says police have leads, but wouldn’t provide details about the killing or who police suspect may be responsible.

The autopsy was scheduled for Wednesday morning.
