Pennsylvania men confesses to murders, attorney says

Pennsylvania men confesses to murders, attorney says

That all changed with a pair of stark revelations Thursday.

UPDATE, 12:27 a.m. ET Thursday: Investigators have discovered human remains in the search for four young Pennsylvania men, The Associated Press reported early Thursday.

After Thursday's shocking turn in the case of four missing Pennsylvania men-a confession-come more details from what Cosmo DiNardo allegedly admitted to doing.

DiNardo, whose parents own the farm, remained in custody on $5 million cash bail, accused so far only of a gun possession charge and trying to sell one of the victims' cars. "I am very relieved to say we brought four young men one step closer to their loved ones so they can rest in peace".

DiNardo has agreed to plead guilty to four first-degree murder counts, attorney Paul Lang said.

"I don't understand the science behind it, but those dogs could smell these poor boys 12-1/2 feet below the ground", Weintraub said.

Authorities on Friday filed charges against Cosmo DiNardo and Sean Michael Kratz that include four counts of criminal homicide against DiNardo and three counts of criminal homicide against Kratz.

Court papers indicate DiNardo then crushed Meo with the backhoe, and Sturgis was fatally shot as he ran. On Thursday, DiNardo apologized when asked about the murders, CBS2 reported. He was released from Bucks County jail on Tuesday night after 10 percent of his $1 million bail was paid by his father.

Dinardo was briefly seen in public after the confession when he left the courthouse in Doylestown. As DiNardo was led away in handcuffs, he said, "I'm sorry". His behavior had been "altered" after he suffered a head injury in an ATV accident a few months ago, and his gun charge cited a history of mental illness.

An attorney for Dinardo did not respond to a message seeking comment, and no one answered when a Washington Post reported visited the address listed for the 20-year-old in court filings.

FBI investigators are using machinery to dig out an area identified by cadaver dogs on a 90-acre farm. After that, they buried the bodies in two separate graves. Large makeshift tents were set up across the property as investigative teams dug for evidence using large machinery.

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.

Two days later after Patrick disappeared, Finocchiaro went missing along with Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg, and Thomas Meo, 21, of Plumstead Township. "It is my hope that he does not post that but that is his prerogative of course if he can post it, but we're going to start looking seriously at the homicide charges and in fact we already have pursued that option".

The first to vanish was 19-year-old Jimi Patrick of Newtown Township. While en route, the cousins made a decision to "rob" Finocchiaro instead, the pair allegedly told police.

When they arrived, DiNardo said Patrick only had $800. Meo's girlfriend last heard from him in a text message on July 7, according to court records, and he did not show up for work on July 8.

Kratz told police that DiNardo "basically crushed" Meo with the backhoe.

A second person was detained in Philadelphia over the horrifying murders of four men whose bodies were torched and buried on a sprawling suburban farm.

Investigators say this is Meo's vehicle. Meo and Sturgis followed Dinardo in Meo's Nissan Maxima to Aquetong Road, the affidavit adds.
