    These photos show two men using the credit cards of a murdered coffee shop owner from Brooklyn at an upstate outlet mall.

    Authorities in Pennsylvania have released surveillance photos of two men believed to have used the credit cards of a Brooklyn coffee shop owner whose burned body was found in Lehigh County in 2011.

    Joshua Rubin, 30, lived in Brooklyn and owned Whisk Cafe in Ditmas Park. He was reported missing on Oct. 31, and his body was discovered the next day in South Whitehall Township.

    An autopsy determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the head.

    Surveillance video shows two men using Rubin's credit cards to make multiple purchases at several stores at the Woodbury Commons Premium Outlets in Central Valley, N.Y, about two hours away from where the victim's body was discovered.
    If anyone has information on the identities of the men in the photos, they are encouraged to contact Lehigh County District Attorney's Homicide Task Force at 610-437-5252.
