  • The Search for 4 Bucks County Missing Men: What We Know

His cousin, Sean Kratz, 20, is now charged in connection with three of the slayings.

The men are Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, of Newtown Township in Bucks County; Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg in Montgomery County; Dean Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown Township in Bucks County, and Tom Meo, 21, of Plumstead Township in Bucks County. Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said he could not identify the other remains at this time, while issuing a fresh appeal for more help from the public.

On Thursday, DiNardo, of Bensalem admitted to killing all four men and told authorities where the bodies were located in an agreement to avoid the death penalty.

A drug dealer has confessed to killing four young Pennsylvania men after he felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions and then burned their bodies at his family's farm in suburban Philadelphia, a person with firsthand knowledge of his confession said. He shot and killed Patrick on July 5, and used a backhoe to dig a hole in which to bury the body.

Police charging documents indicate DiNardo agreed to sell four pounds of marijuana to Patrick for $8,000 and picked him up at his home, but Patrick only had $800.

DiNardo then took the 19-year-old to a remote part of the property and gave him a shotgun. He also said DiNardo "basically crushes" Meo with the backhoe.

Wrapped in blue tarp, Finocchiaro's body was removed from the barn with a backhoe and placed into a metal tank that DiNardo referred to as the "pig roaster".

Patrick and Cosmo Dinardo, whose parents own the farmland, graduated from Holy Ghost Preparatory School a year apart from each other, school spokesman Bill Doherty said. The charging documents state that DiNardo used a backhoe to pick up both men's bodies, put them in the same metal tank as Finocchiaro and poured gasoline into the metal tank and lit it.

The mystery of the four men's disappearances transfixed the Philadelphia area over the past week, taking a grisly turn when human remains were discovered in a 12½-foot-deep grave on a farm. The remains of Patrick were recovered from a separate location on the farm.

For good measure, DiNardo said he took the gun from Kratz and also shot Finocchiaro while he was lying face down on the floor, but claimed Finocchiaro was already dead when he shot him.

Dinardo told police that when they exited the property he shot Meo in the back, who fell to the ground screaming.

Police say the two suspects are cousins. However, Kratz told police that Dinardo was the one who shot Finocchiaro. In exchange, investigators agreed not to seek the death penalty. "I am very, very relieved to say that we brought four young men one step closer to their loved ones". "I'm sorry", he said. While Kratz waited at the farm, court documents say, Dinardo returned with Meo and Sturgis all in a silver pickup truck driven by Dinardo.

"It was described to us as being up on the top of a mountain and we found him, we found him where we were told we were going to find him and I don't know if we would have ever", Weintraub said. They have a construction company and cement.

Authorities had charged DiNardo earlier this year with having a gun despite an involuntary mental health commitment.

Dinardo was previously arrested Monday on a charge of possession of a firearm, an offense dating to February unrelated to the missing men, Weintraub said.

Dinardo's father paid 10% of his $1 million bail in cash, and he was released Tuesday evening. Dinardo's bail was set at $5 million after the district attorney argued that he was a flight risk. Meo, 21, and Sturgis, 22, were friends and coworkers.
