PSP seeks help in murder cold case


The investigation into the November 2016 murder of a Philadelphia-area man in Great Bend Township has stalled and Pennsylvania State Police are reaching out to the public for help in solving the cold case.
Troopers responded to Cal’s Way for a report of a deceased male on Nov. 21, 2016, just after 3 p.m.
The body of homeowner Calvin Eugene Fichter, 64, of Broomall, was discovered in an upstairs bedroom of the residence.
There was no forced entry into the residence, and a handgun belonging to Fichter was missing from the home.
After Fichter’s wife failed to make contact with him, she notified a neighbor to check on him. The neighbor then notified police.
An autopsy, conducted Nov. 22, 2016, by Dr. Gary Ross, forensic pathologist, revealed Fichter sustained three gunshot wounds to the head and neck area. It was determined his date of death was Nov. 20, 2016.
His death was ruled a homicide by Susquehanna County Coroner Anthony Conarton.
According to information on Pennsylvania Crime Stoppers website, there are no suspects in the case.
