No bail for cousins facing charges over 4 deaths

Human remains found in search for 4 Pennsylvania men

Human remains found in search for 4 Pennsylvania men

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Cosmo DiNardo confessed to the quadruple homicide on Thursday and indicated there was another person involved.

All four victims are believed to be buried on a farm property in Solebury, Pa., owned by DiNardo's family. That was followed by the disappearances of 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, of Pennsburg in Montgomery County, 21-year-old Tom Meo, of Plumstead Township, and Finocchiaro on Friday.

"I feel relief. I feel so proud of my team and I feel resolved", said Weintraub during a press conference on Friday.

DiNardo is "a subject known to be suffering from mental illness and admittedly having been the subject of an involuntary commitment to a mental institution for inpatient care and treatment", an investigator wrote in an affidavit about the gun charge.

On Wednesday, investigators found three bodies in a common grave under an oil tank on the farm.

The district attorney said there was an attempt burn, deface and obliterate three bodies, but it wasn't successful.

Lang says prosecutors agreed to take the death penalty off the table in return for DiNardo's cooperation.

Alabama preseason pick to win SEC Championship again
The media have correctly picked the SEC champion two of the last three years, but only four times in the last 20 years. The Bulldogs open their 2017 campaign at Sanford Stadium in Athens on September 2 versus Appalachian State.

DiNardo told police he then ran over Meo's body with a backhoe, before he and Kratz put the bodies in the metal tank with Finocchiaro.

Police on Monday arrested 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo on an unrelated gun charge and called him a person of interest in the case but wouldn't say he was a suspect in the men's disappearance. DiNardo sold quarter-pound quantities of marijuana for several thousand dollars and sold handguns to area residents, the person said.

The suspect drove Mr. Patrick to a wooded part of the property, but instead of going through with the gun sale, shot and killed him with a.22-caliber rifle, the complaints say.

The horrific case of four murdered young men wound to a close on Friday, as law enforcement officials announced they had apprehended the two men who police believe are exclusively responsible for the men's deaths and the disfigurement of their bodies.

A judge ruled Friday that 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo and 20-year-old Sean Kratz will be jailed separately after prosecutors argued the men were dangers to society. They both face multiple counts of conspiracy, robbery and abuse of corpse.

The four young victims, who went missing last week, were lured to the remote property with promises of buying marijuana, but they were shot and killed, and buried in graves dug by a backhoe, according to the Bucks County, Pennsylvania, district attorney.

Patrick's body was found after the district attorney's office "made an agreement" with DiNardo, Weintraub said, adding that without DiNardo's "assistance", authorities would not have been able to find Patrick's body.

Total solar eclipses are not a coincidence
The Washington Post reported that the total solar eclipse will traverse coast to coast after almost a century. Officials with Knox County Schools said schools will be closed on August 21, the day of the solar eclipse .

The Bensalem Police Department had frequent dealings with Mr. DiNardo, according to the department's director, Frederick Harran, but he would not elaborate. Kratz was arrested later the same day in Philadelphia. He is charged in the deaths of all four men. The cousins picked up Meo and Sturgis and when they got to DiNardo's property, they began firing, the records say.

Finocchiaro was positively identified early Thursday after his remains were found in what Weintraub called a mass grave.

At this point, court documents say, Meo was screaming in pain and Dinardo climbed into a backhoe and ran over the injured Meo, killing him. A warrant accused him of being a former mental patient in possession of a shotgun.

Weintraub said the two weapons used in the four homicides were also recovered.

On Wednesday afternoon, Weintraub said investigators had found a auto allegedly stolen from one of the missing men and charged DiNardo with theft.

Kratz's arrest reportedly happened in the 800 block of Magee Avenue in Philadelphia.

The county's top prosecutor indicated that Patrick's body was up to a half a mile away from the other men's bodies and described it as "being up on top of the mountain".
