Harrisburg police are investigating as a homicide the death of Torin Dworchak, a 2019 Middletown Area High School graduate whose body was discovered near the National Civil War Museum early Thursday.

Harrisburg police on its Crimewatch page identified Dworchak, 18, as the man whose body was found in Reservoir Park along Chamberlain Drive at 7:03 a.m.

Police said Dworchak appeared to have been shot multiple times.

Detective Sgt. Kyle Gautsch confirmed to the Press & Journal that police are investigating the case as a homicide but had no further information to provide.

“The Middletown Area School District community is deeply saddened by the recent passing of Torin Dworchak. Torin was a member of the high school chorus. Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers are extended to Torin’s parents, siblings, relatives and friends as they deal with this tragic loss,” MASD Superintendent Lori Suski said in an email to the Press & Journal on Tuesday.

Anyone with information should contact police by calling 717-558-6900 or by submitting a tip through the Crimewatch page.

A Crime Stoppers reward of $2,000 may be awarded for tips that lead to an arrest, according to the city police Crimewatch page.
