Man confesses to killing four in Pennsylvania: Attorney

Man confesses to killing four in Pennsylvania: Attorney

Investigators with the Federal Bureau of Investigation continued to look for the bodies on the farm Thursday evening, local media reported.

The body identified early Thursday was that of 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro.

The victims are 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo and 19-year-old Jimi Taro Patrick. Authorities on Sunday, July 9, 2017, were searching a Solebury property for Finocchiaro and three other men.

Investigators made a break in the case Wednesday when the remains of Finocchiaro, of Middletown, were found in a 12-1/2-foot deep grave on DiNardo's family's farm property, along with other human remains, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub announced at a midnight press conference Thursday.

Another Bensalem man, Eric Beitz, who was friends with Meo and Sturgis, told The Philadelphia Inquirer that DiNardo had spent considerable time with them recently, and spoke of "weird things like killing people and having people killed". The documents indicate that DiNardo drove Patrick to a remote part of his parents' farm property in Solebury, Pennsylvania, and killed him with a.22-caliber rifle. The other remains still need to be identified. The families of the missing men and community members are waiting there for any updates on the search. The hole in which the remains were buried, according to DiNardo's confession, is 12 and a half feet deep and was discovered by police dogs. A second suspect was also arrested and charged in three of the deaths. The mystery is over, but the horrific task of removing and identifying bodies from two deep graves is still underway as Cosmo DiNardo, 20, confessed to these murders and described where he buried the men. DiNardo also told investigators where the four bodies were buried.

"We are not here to make moral judgments on any of their actions", Weintraub said Friday.

The person of interest in the disappearances of four men in Pennsylvania has confessed to their killings, his defense attorney says.




Court papers indicate DiNardo then crushed Meo with the backhoe, and Sturgis was fatally shot as he ran.

It's unclear how well the four knew DiNardo, if at all. "I don't know what convinced him (to confess)". Kratz told interviewers DiNardo "basically crushes him" with the backhoe (referring to Meo).

DiNardo's parents, Antonio and Sandra DiNardo, own the farm in upper Bucks County, a bucolic area with rolling hillsides, new housing developments and historic sites.

DiNardo revealed where he had concealed their bodies on the 90-acre farm, about 30 miles north of Philadelphia, in exchange for avoiding the death penalty.

"I'd like to think that he wanted to help us get these boys home".

DiNardo was arrested on 10 July at his home for owning a gun he was not allowed to possess because of his previous involuntary committal to a mental health facility. Lang also said DiNardo is remorseful over the crime.

Among the alleged victims, Patrick disappeared last Wednesday, according to authorities, and Sturgis, Meo and Finocchario vanished Friday. But Kratz told police that Dinardo was the one who shot Finocchiaro.
