Second Person In Custody In Connection With Killing Of 4 In Pennsylvania

Tips sought in search for 4 missing young Pennsylvania men

A drug dealer has confessed to selling four young men marijuana before killing them and burning their bodies at his family's farm, a person with firsthand knowledge of his confession said Thursday. The auto was found on a second DiNardo family property about a half mile from the farm.

The back-to-back arrests bought investigators time as they scoured the farm and other spots across the county for clues to the men's disappearance, Weintraub said.

Authorities may release more details at a briefing Thursday morning.

On Monday, he was picked up on a weapons charge and held in lieu of $1 million bail.

At a press conference early Thursday morning, shortly after midnight, Weintraub addressed DiNardo, saying, "I feel that we bought ourselves a little bit of time in charging Mr. DiNardo with the stolen auto case today and getting that 5 million dollar bail".

Pennsylvania authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are searching for four young men between the ages of 19 and 22 who vanished within days of each other last week, one on Wednesday and three on Friday.

Lang says Cosmo DiNardo has pleaded guilty to four counts of first degree murder. Make no mistake about it.

Patrick was buried in a six-foot grave on top of a mountain as much as a half-mile away from the common grave, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said at a news conference on Friday afternoon.

DiNardo was also charged on Friday. The charge stems from accusations that DiNardo was caught with a shotgun and ammunition in February despite a prior involuntary commitment to a mental health institution. They own a concrete company near their home in Bensalem, closer to Philadelphia.

Weintraub said he did not believe the bodies were burned as was reported on Thursday.

The FBI had been using heavy equipment to dig a deep trench on the farm property and then sifting through each bucket of dirt by hand.

DiNardo and Kratz, of Northeast Philadelphia, are charged with the July 7 slayings of Dean Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown Township, Bucks County; Thomas Meo, 21, of Plumstead Township, Bucks County; and Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg, Montgomery County.

Police said the victims were buried in a 12-foot grave on the suspects' family's large estate in Solebury Township. Patrick, who was a year behind DiNardo at a Catholic high school for boys, was last seen on July 5, while the other three vanished on Friday.

"They're tenderly, painstakingly, reverentially recovering the remains of people they do not even know", Weintraub said.

He said investigators may never know the exact reason why the men killed the victims.
