Police in Florida have provided an update on the deaths of a Canadian couple killed three years ago.
The bodies of 71 year old David Pichosky and 66 year old Rochelle Wise were found in their Florida condo on Jan. 10, 2013.
Autopsies concluded the deaths were homicide by asphyxiation and the suspected motive was robbery as Wise’s $16,000 wedding ring was missing from the couple’s condo.
Hallandale Beach police say they were able to use a new process called DNA phenotyping from evidence collected at the crime scene to produce a composite sketch of a suspect.
Police said in 2014 that DNA evidence collected at the crime scene suggested at least two female suspects were involved in the murder.
Investigators said the DNA testing company was only able to produce one image as the evidence wasn’t sufficient for the other.
The suspect in the composite sketch is described as a white female with a southeast European background from the Slavic regions such as Kosovo and Bosnia.
She has brown or black hair, with brown or hazel eyes and with a light or olive skin complexion.
Police say the suspect in the sketch closely resembles the image of a woman who was caught on video walking to the rear of the couple’s home a day prior to the murder.
Police say they haven’t had any concrete leads in the case for over a year and are appealing for information from the public on the case. they say they are one tip away from a break in the case.
A monetary reward for information on the case has since been reduced from $57,000 to $3,000.
