Two Charged With Murder In Case Of 4 Missing In Pennsylvania

Missing PA men update - 1 found dead

On a Friday night a week ago, three men got out of a pickup truck on a sprawling piece of rural Pennsylvania real estate. Authorities say all the men were shot and that the suspects tried to set the bodies on fire. Teens regularly circulated DiNardo's number, he told the newspaper.

The next day, Meo's mother reported him missing.

The men will be at separate jails so they can not communicate with one another.

"We have now received the official announcement of the death of Jimi Patrick, Class of 2020". 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.

The body found in the 12 1/2 foot common grave Wednesday was identified as Dean Finocchiaro, 19.

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said that if he hadn't made the deal, "we'd still be looking" for Jimi Patrick's body, which was buried about half of a mile away from the other grave. "And I'm not sure we'll ever know". "We wanted to be supportive and comforting for our community", said Bucks County resident Wyatt McLeod.

At today's news conference, Weintraub paid tribute to the many investigators, searchers and volunteers who had assisted, including the Bucks County Detectives, numerous municipal police departments and fire companies across Bucks County, the Pennsylvania State Police, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Philadelphia Police Department, the Central Bucks Crime Scene Unit, the Bucks County Sheriff's Department, the Montgomery County Detectives, the Montgomery County Police Academy and the American Red Cross, as well as community organizations, private citizens, businesses and other charitable organizations that provided food, drinks and supplies to those involved in the search efforts. DiNardo picked Kratz, his cousin, beforehand, and they drove to Finocchiaro's residence in Middletown Township.

After killing the men, DiNardo confessed to burning the bodies in a metal tank that was converted into a cooker that he labeled a "pig roaster", according to The Daily Mail.

There was also a co-conspirator in the deaths of three of the men, who has not been identified, the AP source said.

At least some of the missing men are friends, but it's unclear how well they knew DiNardo, if at all.

Some top news reporters spoke to some of the investigators.

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. He told Patrick that he could sell him a shotgun instead of money.

Dinardo then drove a backhoe that was on the property to where Patrick lay, dug a hole no more than 6 feet deep and buried him, the affidavit states.

The three of them drove back to Dinardo's large property. Patrick's body was discovered on a separate part of the property.

Police latched onto Dinardo after finding Meo's Nissan Altima and his diabetes kit on Dinardo's property. He then led authorities to the site of the initial killing. The killer then ran over Sturgis' body with a backhoe. He put them in the same metal tank as Finocchiaro and poured gasoline in it and lit it.

Meo's vehicle was found at a separate property owned by the DiNardo family, a day after authorities said DiNardo attempted to sell Meo's auto to a friend for $500, according to a criminal affidavit.

Dinardo's parents own a construction and cement company called Cosan LLC.

The girlfriend of Moe said investigators had exchanged text messages with his companion up to about 19 hours, and then nothing more, which would be "out of the ordinary and unusual", she says. They say DiNardo has a history of mental illness including schizophrenia.

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.

DiNardo was charged with homicide after attempting to sell one of the missing men's stolen vehicle, and his property was investigated.

He had been previously held on a $1 million bond until Tuesday evening for an unrelated weapons charge.

Kratz was reportedly arrested after his cousin told cops he'd been involved.

The defendants were jailed without bail and ordered held separately at a Friday afternoon hearing.

Kratz, too, has several criminal arrests. One stems from a December 2016 incident that resulted in the filing of burglary, criminal trespassing, theft, receiving stolen property, and other charges.
