Police: 1 Dead, 2 Tied Up In Bucks County Home Invasion

Posted: Updated:
HILLTOWN, Pa. -

Authorities in Bucks County are trying to solve a mystery and find the men who killed the owner of a popular restaurant.

The whole thing started Friday morning, when cops say two home invaders burst into the home in Hilltown Township, Bucks County.

They believe the two suspects may have been in the house for hours before leaving and killing a 48-year-old father and local businessman.

The two armed and masked men stormed the upscale home on Swartley Road. Killed was Joseph Canazaro. His fianceé Diane Capone and his 12-year-old son escaped after being tied up in the basement.

Police spent the rest of Friday interviewing family members and searching for clues. Detectives were still at the scene late Friday night collecting evidence and mapping out the crime scene.

Investigators say the house was ransacked.

The two suspects, described by police as an Asian male and a Hispanic male, made their getaway in a black Lincoln pickup truck.

SkyFOX was over the scene when police found that truck ditched hours later behind Quakertown Plaza. It was hauled into the Hilltown police headquarters along with the trash receptacle that was next to it.

Capone's family stayed at the police station for support late into the night as police questioned her and the child.

Investigators say guns and possibly bank books are missing from the home.

Police said they do not believe this was a random act. What the home invaders' specific motivation was is yet to be determined.

According to the state liquor license and the D.A., Canazaro was an owner of Finn McCools in Ambler, Montgomery County. His fiancee', Capone, is listed as the manager. Investigators aren't sure if his business dealings have any connection to the home invasion and his subsequent death.

Authorities are still waiting on an autopsy to determine the exact cause of death.

As for the suspects, they are still on the run and considered extremely armed and dangerous, FOX 29's Omari Fleming reported.

Anyone who might know the whereabouts of the two men is urged to dial 9-1-1, police said.
