Four young men from Pennsylvania have been missing since the beginning of July 2017. Among those men include 19-year-old Jimi Patrick who has been missing since July 5th, 18-year old Dean Finocchiaro who has been missing since July 7th, and coworkers 22-year-old Mark Sturgis and 21-year-old Tom Meo who have both been missing since July 8th.
Tragically, one of the young men’s body’s was found in a 12-foot grave. The body has been identified as 18-year-old Dean Finocchiaro. Authorities mentioned there were other human remains in the grave, but they have not yet been identified.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub stated, “This is a homicide; make no mistake about it. We just don’t know how many homicides.”
A person of interest has been revealed to the public. His name is Cosmo DiNardo and he is only 20 years old. He has also been determined to be suffering from a mental illness. DiNardo was recently arrested on unrelated gun charges and is now being held in custody for theft of Meo’s car. During investigation, it was discovered that he and Patrick were friends on Facebook.
The investigation is still ongoing as the search continues for the missing men. As of right now, it is still unknown if there is other connections between all of them and if they even knew each other at all. No other suspects have been named as of July 13th, 2017.
