Two arrested, charged with the murders of missing Bucks Co. men

15 July 2017

The other three men, Mark Sturgis (22), Tom Meo (21), and Jimi Tar Patrick (19), vanished between Wednesday and Friday of last week. Dinardo then shot Finocchiaro when he was laying on the ground, according to the affidavit. He posted 10 percent of $10,000 bail in March.

The district attorney of the county of Bucks, Matthew Weintraub said Thursday that the lifeless body of Dean Finocchiaro could be identified, which was not the case for the other bodies found.

"I can't predict the future, but that is what I believe", Weintraub said.

Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub confirmed during a press conference Friday afternoon the remains of Finocchiaro, Meo, Sturgis, Patrick's remains have been located.

18 year old Dean Finocchiaro of Middletown is only victim who has been positively identified.

At a press conference early Thursday morning, shortly after midnight, Weintraub addressed DiNardo, saying, "I feel that we bought ourselves a little bit of time in charging Mr. DiNardo with the stolen vehicle case today and getting that 5 million dollar bail". The four victims were only connected insofar as they agreed to meet Dinardo to buy marijuana, according to the affidavit.

He said investigators may never know the exact reason why the men killed the victims.

On February 9, police responded to a report of gunfire in DiNardo's neighbourhood and found him in his auto with a shotgun, and he told the officers that he had been involuntarily committed, Harran said.

Upon his arrest as a person of interest, prosecutors said DiNardo was schizophrenic and a flight risk. Weintraub said that if not for DiNardo's cooperation, authorities might not have found the body of Patrick, a Loyola University Maryland student. DiNardo said he picked up Patrick at the man's home in Newtown on July 5 and drove him to the DiNardo family's property in Solebury Township. The farm is owned by the parents of Cosmo DiNardo. He buried Jimi Taro Patrick in a hole he dug with a backhoe. DiNardo told investigators that he had a marijuana "deal" set up with Meo.

12 a.m.: Authorities announce that the remains of Finocchiaro have been found after an extensive search in Bucks County, mainly focusing a 90-acre property owned by the DiNardo family. Sean Kratz, 20, faces 20 counts, including three of criminal homicide.

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. Sturgis started running away, but he shot him, too, with a Smith and Wesson. Meo was struck in the back with a.357 handgun and Sturgis was sacked at several times after trying to flee. DiNardo said he had run out of ammunition, so he ran over Meo with the backhoe. Finocchiaro's body was then placed in a blue tarp and he was tossed into the pig roaster.

The FBI had been using heavy equipment to dig a deep trench on the farm property and then sifting through each bucket of dirt by hand.

Veselnitskaya told the USA broadcaster NBC she had been accompanied by one other man, but that she would not identify him. Emin Agalarov is a Russian pop singer whose billionaire father, Aras, is a friend of President Trump.

The two suspects' statements were similar, the affidavit says, but Kratz said Dinardo shot Finocchiaro, not him.

Authorities have said that Dinardo has a history of "severe mental illness" and had been committed to a mental health facility after an episode in which he fired a shotgun. For that, he was held on a $5 million cash bail.
