4 men mysteriously vanish in Pennsylvania

Dean Finocchiaro, 19, was identified as one of those found.

Two of the men vanished last week with two more reported missing Sunday. But little has been said about how all are connected or what might have led to the disappearance of the four.

The Bucks County District Attorney's Office has released disturbing new information in the murders of four men.

At a Thursday morning press conference, the district attorney was not able to report the identities of any other remains found, and said that police have not yet named a suspect. "This is a homicide - make no mistake about it".

Of the search on the DiNardo property, Weintraub said, "We're not exactly sure what we're going to find there, but we're pretty confident that the investigation is proceeding in the direction we believed that it would".

On Monday, police arrested 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo, whose family owns the sprawling property, on an unrelated gun charge. His attorney said his client had pleaded guilty and was being held on a $5 million bond.

DiNardo's parents, who own the farm property in Solebury and construction and concrete companies in Bensalem, where they live, declined to comment Thursday when they left a court building after their son confessed.

Police have been scouring the area for leads and discovered one of the victim's auto at a home in Solebury Township.

DiNardo was initially arrested on Monday on charges relating to illegal possession of a shotgun and ammunition. DiNardo is prohibited from possessing a firearm because he has a mental illness and had previously been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility.

A Pennsylvania prosecutor plans to announce at midnight Wednesday a major development in the investigation of four missing men. His family owns the farm. The FBI found them Wednesday after four days of methodical hand-digging and sifting in a spot on the 90-acre farm that dogs had sniffed out. The confession came a day after the body of one of the missing men, Dean Finocchiaro, 19, was discovered in a 12 foot deep common grave on his parent's family farm.

Finnochiaro, of Middletown Township, and Meo, of Plumstead Township, both in Bucks County, were reported missing last Friday, along with 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, of Pennsburg, Montgomery County.

Cosmo DiNardo, 20, carried out the killings after he felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions, a person with firsthand knowledge of his confession said.
