ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers on Wednesday identified the tools taken during a robbery in which an airplane mechanic was killed on the Kenai Peninsula last week.

Gerald Sibley, 61, was found dead Friday at an airplane hangar at a private airstrip near Mile 18 of the Kenai Spur Highway. He lived in an apartment in the hangar. Troopers said he was shot, and tools and other items were missing.

Troopers said the stolen tools were Snap-On brand hand tools. A Sears Craftsman model five-drawer tool chest also was missing.

Sibley's body was flown to Anchorage for an autopsy by the state medical examiner's office.
