Police did not offer details on how the bandits arrived at the home, how they entered it, or what types of guns or other items they may have taken.
About 10 a.m., the woman escaped and ran to a neighbor's house to call 911, police said. A second child had left for school before the pair entered the home, police said.
Police said Canazaro and the woman lived in the home but did not own it, and property records do not list Canazaro as an owner.
Records list Canazaro as an executive in the group that owns Finn McCool's Pub in Ambler, and there were several messages expressing condolences left on the pub's Facebook wall.
According to court records, Canazaro was charged in Bucks County in 1993 with possessing a gun with intent to use it in a crime.
Friends and family of the victims gathered at the Hilltown Township Police Department, where detectives interviewed the woman. Those at the station declined to speak to reporters.
In the afternoon, police announced that they had recovered the stolen vehicle in upper Bucks County, but did not offer details on where it was found or whether anything was recovered inside the truck.
The robbers, described as armed and dangerous, remained at large, police said, adding that the FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives agents joined the investigation.
The investigation was "very fluid," Hilltown Police Chief Christopher Engelhart said Friday morning, and police combed the property throughout the day.
The large home has several front-facing windows, a long driveway, and fields surrounding it. There is a basketball court next to the house, and hay bales line the fence that borders a neighbor's property. A paintball facility is at the property's other end.
Hilltown police would not say when the last homicide occurred in the township, but according to township records online, one was recorded between August 2011 and September 2012.
