    PA - Four young men, 18-22, missing, Bucks Co., 5-9 July 2017 #4


    Police continue searching for 4 missing Pennsylvania men, identify ‘person of interest’ in the case

    July 11, 2017

    The disappearance of four young men last week has touched off an extensive criminal investigation in a picturesque rural area outside of Philadelphia in one of Pennsylvania’s wealthiest counties.

    [...]

    Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said in a news conference Monday that foul play is suspected in the disappearances, and that leads are “incredibly hot.” At a briefing Tuesday, Weintraub said someone in custody on unrelated charges is believed to be a “person of interest” in the case.

    The first to go missing, Jimi Tara Patrick, 19, was last seen Wednesday. Then, on Friday, Mark Sturgis, 22; Tom Meo, 21; and Dean Finocchiaro, 18, also vanished. Some or all of the missing men appear to know each other, authorities said. Two of them, Sturgis and Meo, worked together at Sturgis’s father’s construction business.

    Sturgis was last seen leaving his house Friday night to visit Meo, Sturgis’s father told NBC 10. When the two men didn’t show up for work Saturday morning, Sturgis’s father, Mark Potash, grew worried, he told the Philadelphia Inquirer.

    [...]

    Finocchiaro, a mutual friend of Sturgis and Meo, was last seen Friday night getting into a vehicle driven by another individual, who is not missing, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

    [...]

    Authorities on Monday arrested Cosmo DiNardo, 20, whose family owns the farm, on a previous weapons charge that had initially been dismissed.

    Weintraub said Tuesday that DiNardo “is a person of interest in this case,” but he emphasized that there is a big difference between being of interest and being charged with something, noting that the chasm “is so wide that we never cross it” in some cases.

    Human remains of 1 of 4 missing Pennsylvania men found, says district attorney
    By David Caplan Jul 13, 2017, 12:11 AM ET


    Human remains of one of the four missing Pennsylvania men have been found and identified, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said at a press conference early Thursday morning, shortly after midnight.

    The remains, found on a sprawling farm in suburban Philadelphia, were those of Dean Finocchiaro, 19 of Middletown, Penn., Weintraub said.

    [...]

    Weintraub did not mention the three other missing men, but added, "there are additional human remains inside that grave. So this painstaking process will go on. We're not done yet. This is a homicide, make no mistake about it. We just don't know how many homicides, we have yet to know the answer to that questions."

    [...]

    Why would that preclude it from being JTP? Did JTP not have any tattoos? Does a K tattoo have some particular meaning that would not be something related to him?

    It was said way earlier that no, JTP had no tattoos that had been reported.

    This is the stuff that nightmares are made of.

    How on earth does this crap happen? How does it come to this? Assaults and drugs and quadruple murder? Like...just how??? Especially for these boys to be this young, it's just hard for me to understand how things could get this far, this fast, this early in life.

    There is so much pain in Bucks County tonight. I can't even imagine. Man.

    My sister is a high functioning schizophrenic. She is a Certified Nurse Practitioner.

    He is nothing but a spoiled rich bratty POS who has had his families money to keep bailing him out of his nonsense.

    I call BS that "oh he had schizophrenia he couldn't have done this alone." He could have, did he? We don't know.

    I am really unclear where some are getting these boys were burned? What has lead you to believe this? That he put eff with me and get smoked? That does not necessarily mean burned, That could be killed, shot, etc.

    The press conference ( I abhor the word presser) wasn't what anyone expected? Why else would LE and the DA call a MIDNIGHT press conference? Why not wait until
    7 am, 8 am? Everyone had to know this would not be a good press conf.

    SMH, ALL MOO
    I'm wondering if this was done to get some more tips in.

    His mother submitted a 302 commitment after his first arrest.

    "Following the press conference, a video arraignment took place inside Magisterial Judge Maggie Snow’s office.

    The second in command, Bucks County DA, Gregg Shore, requested a $5 million cash bail.

    “He is a danger to society and is at risk for flight,” Shore said. He noted Cosmo DiNardo has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and that his mother submitted a 302 commitment during his last arrest on Tuesday.

    Defense Attorney’s Michael Parlow and Paul Lang explained DiNardo has no history of legal trouble.

    “This information was known days ago,” Lang said to the Judge. “This is an added charge to hold him in jail.”

    After a less than 10 minute debate, Judge Maggie Snow set the bail at the request of DA Shore.

    Per another request of DA Shore, DiNardo is being transferred from Bensalem to the Bucks County Correctional Facility. "

    For those wondering what a 302 is:

    A 302 commitment in Pennsylvania is an involuntary commitment into a mental health institute for emergency psychiatric evaluation. The person who signs or calls for the 302 must have direct first hand knowledge of the person and the danger they pose to themselves or others.

    I still want to know more about Jimi Tar Patrick. Did he have a car? Where is it? What time did he leave and when was he expected at work? Tattos?

    And for what it's worth a friend said after the accident he started using K2 heavily. The same drug that Aaron Hernandez allegedly was using when he killed himself in prison. :


    A friend of DiNardo’s told Heavy.com that “six or seven months” before his arrest, though another source said the injury occurred closer to November 2016, DiNardo suffered a head injury following a quad biking accident. The friend said that DiNardo was stranded in the woods alone for around a day and a half with injuries, including broken bones and bleeding on his brain. As a result of the accident DiNardo had frontal lobe damage. The friend said that sometime after the accident, DiNardo began using K2, a synthetic marijuana drug.

    Later, the same friend told Heavy.com that DiNardo had an IQ of around 158. The source said, “[DiNardo] is extremely smart and deceptive and knows his way around forensic data.”

    What exactly does the DA mean by "common grave"? Were several unidentified remains found there? Maybe not even of the boys? Ugh.
