FBI's Search for 4 Missing Pennsylvania Men Leads to an Arrest

Missing Dean Finocchiaro

Cadaver dogs found the remains, and authorities are working to identify them, the district attorney said.

"We are not done yet".

In a press conference on Monday, reporters asked police whether foul play was suspected, to which Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub replied "it sure would seem so".

The body found today was that of 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro.

DiNardo, 20, who once sold guns and marijuana and bragged about having someone killed over a debt, was arrest on a $5 million cash bail.

A 20-year-old drug dealer with a history of mental illness has been charged after confessing to the killings of four U.S. men who vanished a week ago.

The other men missing are 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick. It is understood the two are friends.

Weintraub would not answer questions on why the DiNardo property is the main search site, and stressed that Cosmo DiNardo does not face any charges related to the men's disappearance.

DiNardo's attorney said his confession was exchanged for the prosecutor to take the death penalty off the table.

The area had been in the grips of panic after four men disappeared in the span of three days last week.

"They're down 12 feet deep in a hole that's getting deeper by the minute", Weintraub said of investigators.

Also on July 7, Dinardo said he met Meo and Sturgis at a church parking lot in Peddler's Village, a short distance west of the Dinardo property on Route 202 in Lahaska, the court records say.

DiNardo was originally arrested earlier this week over illegally possessing a shotgun and ammunition on a charge filed back in February, but was bailed.

On Sunday evening, state police searched a home along Aquetong Road in Solebury Township and found a auto belonging to one of the teens in a garage. The attorney also said his client was ready to plead guilty to four counts of first-degree murder. He said Patrick's buried body was described by DiNardo as "being on top of a mountain" and without his help "I don't know if we ever would have found [Patrick]".

It's unclear how well the four knew DiNardo, if at all.

DiNardo was prohibited from owning such a weapon, the document alleges, as he was "known to be suffering from a mental illness" following his involuntary commitment to a mental institution.

Not yet. Police on Monday arrested Cosmo DiNardo, 20, whose family owns the farm in Solebury Township that authorities searched.
