Bucks County District Attorney Releases Disturbing Details On Deaths Of 4 Men

DiNardo acknowledged murdering four young men in a plea bargain deal that will spare him from the death penalty.

Eric Beitz, a friend of one of the missing men, told the Philadelphia Inquirer that DiNardo was "aggressively" seeking new customers to sell marijuana and guns to and that some of the men first met DiNardo while he was trying to sell them weed.

A Pennsylvania man has confessed that he was involved in the deaths of four missing men in eastern Pennsylvania, his lawyer told reporters Thursday.

The search has focused on the extensive property - owned by Dinardo's parents, Antonio and Sandra, according to prosecutors - in Solebury Township.

The only motive disclosed by investigators was that DiNardo said he wanted to set the victims up when they came to the farm to buy marijuana.

The next day, Kratz and DiNardo returned to the scene to bury the three men in 12 ½-foot deep holes.

Patrick's body was found in a six-foot grave elsewhere on the property.

DiNardo admitted to killing Jimi Patrick, Tom Meo, Dean Finocchiaro and Mark Sturgis in Bucks County, north of Philadelphia, his lawyer said Thursday.

Kratz and DiNardo had made a decision to rob Finocchiaro after luring him to the farm, but for some reason, Kratz shot him in the head, the affadavit said. DiNardo and Kratz picked Finocchiaro up, but then changed their minds about selling him the drugs and instead plotted to rob him. He then used the machine to lift both bodies into the metal tank where he had already placed Finocchiaro's corpse, according to the court documents.

That same night, DiNardo told authorities he arranged a deal with Meo.

All three victims were dropped into a large container on the farm, what DiNardo called a "pig roaster", and then he burned the bodies, according to the affadavit. Dinardo told police that he shot Meo in the back, and as Sturgis started to run away, Dinardo shot Sturgis, killing him.

Officials say DiNardo then drove a backhoe over Meo, picked up the bodies of Meo and Sturgis and threw them in the same "metal tank" as Finocchiaro. The farm where the bodies were buried belongs to the DiNardo family, who owns the business, Cosan LLC, which is a cement and construction company in the area.

Authorities might never have found the fourth body unless they worked with DiNardo, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said.

Authorities have said that Dinardo has a history of "severe mental illness" and had been committed to a mental health facility after an episode in which he fired a shotgun.

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

"We are going to find something for sure I have no doubt of that", Weintraub said. Lang says prosecutors agreed to take the death penalty off the table in return for DiNardo's cooperation. Weintraub will lay out the case in detail Friday afternoon, according to a spokesman. Kratz's mother, Vanessa, declined to comment on her son arrest's when reached by phone. Kratz has reportedly denied this. On June 21, an assistant district attorney, Megan B. Brooks, told Officer Katherine Bailey of the Bensalem Police Department to "reinstate and refile" the second-degree felony charge.

The remains of at least one of the men were found after an extensive search on a massive property belonging to DiNardo's parents.

After Meo and Sturgis exited his vehicle, DiNardo said he shot Meo in the back with the.357 handgun.

So far officials have only been able to confirm the identify of one of the bodies-Dean R. Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown-while the other three bodies remain unidentified. Jimi Patrick, a 19-year-old who just finished his first year at Loyola University in Baltimore, vanished two days earlier.

Second suspect Kratz charged in Pennsylvania killings
At least three of the four missing men knew one another. "Our work is not done", Weintraub said at the news conference. He placed Finocchiaro's body in a metal tank, which he referred to as a "pig roaster", according to court records.
