The horrific case of four murdered young men wound to a close on Friday, as law enforcement officials announced they had apprehended the two men who police believe are exclusively responsible for the men's deaths and the disfigurement of their bodies. DiNardo was released Tuesday evening to his parents' home in Bensalem while Federal Bureau of Investigation agents sifted through mounds of dirt from a deep pit they dug on the farm about 20 miles away, and police cadets combed the vast cornfields nearby.
DiNardo, 20, then burned the bodies - three of them inside a drum - at his family's farm in Solebury Township, about 30 miles (48 kilometers) north of Philadelphia, the person said.
The back-to-back arrests bought investigators time as they scoured the farm and other spots across the county for clues to the men's disappearance, Weintraub said. Prosecutors say DiNardo has been diagnosed as schizophrenic.
So far, investigators have only been able to identify one set of remains - those of 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, one of the four young men who vanished last week. "I feel relief. I feel so proud of my team and I feel resolved", said Weintraub during a press conference on Friday.
"As we are all deeply affected by this news, I encourage you to take care of yourself".
Many people, she said, were trying to convince themselves this is nothing that could ever happen to their kids. Matthew Weintraub, the District Attorney had high hopes that these persons were alive.
The criminal complaint said DiNardo told authorities the killings began July 5 after he agreed to sell Jim Patrick, 19, the first victim, four pounds of marijuana for $8,000. He says Patrick only had $800 so he offered to sell him a shotgun instead; then he shot him.
Dinardo allegedly used a backhoe to dig a 6-foot-deep hole and bury him, the affidavit states.
Neighbors on the cul-de-sac where Dinardo lives in Bensalem described him as a good kid who went out of his way to help others, such as volunteering to shovel them out during snowstorms and refusing payment.
All four victims had been shot, according to a probable cause affidavit, which said both suspects gave incriminating statements to police on Thursday.
The three of them drove back to Dinardo's large property. DiNardo told investigators Kratz shot Finocchiaro in the head, but Kratz claimed DiNardo did it.
They then placed him in a metal tank that Dinardo referred to as the pig roaster, according to the criminal complaint. He picked Patrick up and drove him to his family's 90-acre property.
It is the result of this discovery of Cosmo Dinardo would have happened to the confessions. Sturgis was shot as he tried to run away and fell to the ground. Dinardo then took the backhoe and drove it over Meo's body. He put them in the same metal tank as Finocchiaro and poured gasoline in it and lit it. He said he believed DiNardo attempted to burn them but was not successful.
Dinardo's parents own a construction and cement company called Cosan LLC.
Earlier this year, authorities charged DiNardo with possessing a firearm despite an involuntary mental health commitment.
The original charge was dismissed by a judge in May, and the Bucks County district attorney's office authorized police to reinstate and refile that charge on June 21.
A law enforcement official escorts Cosmo DiNardo, whose attorney said has admitted to killing four men reported missing in the Bucks County area. On Tuesday, DiNardo was released on $1 million bail on an unrelated gun charge.
Kratz was reportedly arrested after his cousin told cops he'd been involved. For that, he was held on a $5 million cash bail. He was out on bail at the time of the killings.
Police say the Loyola University Maryland student didn't show up for work as a beer runner at a restaurant-bar in nearby Doylestown, CNN affiliate WPVI-TV said.
