Body Of Missing Man Found By Pennsylvanian Authorities

Person of Interest Cosmo Di Nardo Posts $100,000 Bond

An attorney representing the couple issued a statement earlier on Wednesday (Thursday NZT) saying they sympathise with the families of the missing men and are cooperating "in every way possible with the investigation".

"We have now received the official announcement of the death of Jimi Patrick, Class of 2020". Viewers could watch investigators haul up buckets of dirt and sift it through handheld screens in what looked like an archaeological dig.

Meo's 1996 Nissan Maxima was discovered on the same farm as Finocchiaro's body and the other human remains.

Prosecutors said DiNardo suffered from schizophrenia.

Authorities might never have found the fourth body unless they worked with DiNardo, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said. Aerial footage shows teams searching under a large tent, and Weintraub has said they are enduring stifling heat as they painstakingly search the property.

"I don't know what convinced him (to confess)".

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

Dinardo and Kratz were apparently on the illicit trade of marijuana and firearms. Weintraub's office would not confirm or deny media reports that Dinardo had implicated a co-conspirator and that someone in Philadelphia was taken into custody late Thursday night.

DiNardo might have been released, but still he remains a person of interest.

Investigators located Patrick's body Thursday.




DiNardo, the son of the farm property's owners, was being held on $5 million cash bail before his confession, accused of trying to sell one of the victims' cars. Patrick only had $800, and they walked to a secluded part of the property where DiNardo shot him with a.22 caliber rifle. He similarly told detectives Kratz and he agreed to rob Finocchiaro while selling him marijuana. It was the body of a 19-year-old who had gone missing on Friday. Dinardo said he picked him up at Patrick's home in Newtown on July 5 and drove him to the Dinardo property at 6071 Lower York Road in Solebury, the affidavit says.

Dinardo told investigators, in the affidavit, he shot Meo and Sturgis as they exited the truck. Sturgis then attempted to run away, prompting DiNardo to shoot him until he ran out of ammunition. He then led authorities to the site of the initial killing. The affidavit alleges DiNardo confessed he then ran over Meo with the backhoe before using it to lift both bodies into a metal oil tank, where he had already placed Finocchiaro's corpse.

Dinardo allegedly poured gasoline into the tank and lit it, the complaint says.

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

For five days, dozens of law enforcement officers searched the farmland owned by DiNardo's parents.

Weintraub said investigators found Meo's critical diabetes treatment kit in the vehicle.

But 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.

A judge dismissed the charge in May, but the Bucks County district attorney's office authorized police to reinstate and refile charges last month.

Suspect Cosmo DiNardo attended a Catholic boys school with one of the missing men, Jimi Tar Patrick.

DiNardo, 20, was first arrested Monday and held on $1 million bail on an unrelated gun charge before his father paid $100,000 to bail him out Tuesday.
