Pennsylvania Murder Case Takes Unexpected Turn

July 18, 2017Jul 18, 2017

In early July of 2017, four young men went missing in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, capturing the nation’s attention. 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick of Newtown Township, 22-year-old Mark Sturgis of Pennsburg, 21-year-old Tom Meo of Plumstead Township, and 19-year-old Dean A. Finocchiaro disappeared after involvement in a drug deal, prompting a massive hunt.

Investigators later found human remains buried in a 12-foot grave on private property, which was identified as one of the young men, Finocchiaro. Police arrested 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo, the son of one of the property’s owners, as a person of interest, who confessed to all four murders and revealed to police where the other bodies were located.

After DiNardo confessed to the murders and DiNardo’s cousin, Sean Kratz, was arrested for conspiring to rob and kill the missing men, the case seemed to be closed. However, an unexpected turn has taken place.

DiNardo reportedly admitted to killing another man and a woman in Philadelphia, reports CBS News. He claims it happened sometime in the past five years, but does not know their names.

Authorities are in the process of determining whether DiNardo’s claims of these additional murders are true. Once the investigation results are in, this article will be update accordingly.

More on Cosmo DiNardo:

DiNardo has been described as ‘mentally ill’. Prior to confessing to the murders, he was recently arrested on unrelated gun charges and theft of Meo’s car. A friend of Meo’s stated, “I can tell you on multiple different occasions, on multiple different accounts, from multiple different people, including myself — Cosmo [DiNardo] has spoken about weird things like killing people and having people killed. Everybody you talk to about this guy, you hear he’s mentally unstable.”
