Danville Police on Monday released more detailed information about the suspect and the triple homicide in a pawn shop that shocked the community last Friday morning.

Investigators described the unknown suspect as being a white male; 40-to-50 years old; with a stocky build, possibly with a pot belly, and a dingy gray or yellow beard that could have been fake.

Witnesses told police that the man may have been wearing dark sunglasses and a green Army jacket.

Investigators said it appeared the suspect left in the van onto Fackler Street and was headed east.

Police also said the suspect may have been in the area the day before the shootings.

Investigators said about 9:00 a.m. Friday, a man robbed and killed Mike and Angela Hockensmith, of Stanford, along with gold and precious metals buyer Daniel P. Smith of Richmond, who was a regular visitor to the store.

The Hockensmith's were part owners and operators of ABC Gold, Games and More at 500 South Fourth Street.

The Hockensmith's two children, a 9-year old boy and a 14-month old girl, were in the store at the time of the shootings.  The boy called 9-1-1.  The children were not hurt.

The Boyle County Coroner said all three victims died of multiple gunshot wounds.
