Hallandale Beach Police Reveal New Composite Sketch in Canadian Couple's 2013 Slaying

Using DNA evidence, Hallandale Beach Police have revealed a new compsite sketch of a possible suspect in the slaying of a Canadian couple three years ago.

On Thursday, police revealed the new sketch of a possible suspect in the slayings of David Pinchosky and Rochelle Wise in January of 2013.

The composite sketch was made utilizing DNA found at the scene.

The couple was found dead inside their apartment at the Venetian Park West at 926 Northeast 25th Avenue.

Nearly a year after the deaths, police said they found the DNA of two unidentified women at the scene along with a shoe print.

Wise's wedding ring was also missing, and police said robbery might have been a possible motive in the killings.

The shoe print came from an Adidas Supernova sneaker that was made in 2000 and is out of production, Police Chief Dwayne Flournoy said.

The DNA did not match anyone in law enforcement databases in the U.S. or Canada. Detectives were waiting on DNA testing results from the Broward Sheriff's Office crime lab.

"They have no enemies, they did not carry large sums of money around, they were not flashy, so we just have not been able to pinpoint the reason why someone would either target them or was it a crime of opportunity," Flournoy said in an earlier press conference.

Police believe the couple was asphyxiated but haven't said how they were asphyxiated. They couple was also found bound.

The case remains unsolved.
