    PA - Four young men, 18-22, Bucks Co., 5-9 July 2017 #6 *Arrests*


    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."

    [...]

    BREAKING: Cosmo DiNardo defense attorney says client confessed to 'participation in murders of four young men

    BREAKING: Cosmo DiNardo defense attorney says his client has confessed to "participation in murders of four young men."

    Defense attorney Paul Lang wouldn't say if others are involved in the killings, but says the four men who are murdered are the four missing since last week.

    Lang says DiNardo's confession comes in exchange for the district attorney's promise not to pursue death penalty.

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.

    A second person of interest has been taken into custody at the Philadelphia Police Northeast Detectives Division and being held for Bucks County authorities to pick up and question. So far, no charges have been filed.

    I believe the oil tank was on top of the bodies in the grave. Maybe he thought if they found that they'd think that was all that was buried?

    Even Fox doesn't have a credible source....they just word it as "a source".

    Does this bring the other burned body from June into play? Can't think of the person's name or the circumstances, but similar MO (re: torture and burning of a young man).

    I think the whole BR angle is just FB and Reddit rumors. Not once mentioned by LE or DA.
