Human remains found in search for missing men, 1 victim ID'd

Thomas Meo and Mark Sturgis were ready to buy some pot.

DiNardo's lawyer said his client is remorseful and led investigators to the men's remains.

Dinardo would later tell police he had a Smith and Wesson.357 revolver.

The FBI had been using heavy equipment to dig a deep ditch on the farm property, and then sifting through each bucket of dirt by hand. The body was later found Thursday by investigators. In exchange for that confession, prosecutors agreed not to seek the death penalty against him.

Laura Hefty, who lives a few miles from the gravesite in Solebury Township, where farms bump up against new residential developments, said many people were trying to convince themselves this is nothing that could ever happen to their kids. "And I'm not sure we'll ever know". "I'd like to think that he wanted to help us get these boys home".

He pleaded guilty on June 27 to the disorderly conduct and retail theft charges, court records show. Weintraub said that was a bit lucky.

Kratz was charged with three counts of criminal homicide, nine counts of conspiracy, three counts of robbery, three counts of abuse of a corpse, possession of a weapon and possession of an instrument of crime with intent.

It's unclear how well the four knew DiNardo, if at all. Kratz spoke to investigators on Thursday night.

After killing the men, DiNardo confessed to burning the bodies in a metal tank that was converted into a cooker that he labeled a "pig roaster", according to The Daily Mail. A witness said DiNardo offered to sell him the vehicle on Saturday. 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 told detectives he used a backhoe to dig both graves.

Finocchiaro was killed two days later after DiNardo agreed to sell him a quarter pound of pot for about $700. DiNardo picked Patrick up at home in Newtown and drove him to the property on Lower York Road. A friend of Meo and Sturgis, Eric Beitz, said that DiNardo had been hanging out with them recently and that he talked about "weird things like killing people and having people killed".

Later that same day, DiNardo shot Sturgis and Meo and placed them in the same tank as Finocchiaro.

Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg in Montgomery County, is one of four missing men that police from several departments are looking for in Bucks County.

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

- Later that day, Meo and Sturgis met similar fates in their pursuit of weed. Kratz told interviewers DiNardo "basically crushes him" with the backhoe (referring to Meo).

Authorities have confirmed Finocchiaro's body was found.

Dinardo allegedly poured gasoline into the tank and lit it, the complaint says. Authorities located the bodies of all four men on a 68-acre property belonging to DiNardo's parents.

DiNardo got his mother's.357 gun and gave it to Kratz, the charging documents state. 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. The district attorney, Matthew D. Weintraub, said on Thursday that the 12-foot deep grave was getting deeper as the search effort continued.

A second person of interest is in custody in the deaths of four young men in Bucks County, according to two published reports citing sources.

His father bailed him out, but he was jailed again later in the week on the stolen-car charges, and bail was set much higher, after a prosecutor said he was a danger to the community because he had been diagnosed as schizophrenic. A second suspect has also been arrested.

"That will come out in time".
