Sean Kratz is 2nd 'person of interest' in Bucks County slayings

Sean Kratz is 2nd 'person of interest' in Bucks County slayings

The four young men went missing within days of each other.

Prosecutors further revealed they were led to the DiNardo farm after pinging one of the missing men's cellphones.

Local, state, and federal investigators have been working to solve the case since their mysterious disappearance.

The fourth victim, 19-year-old Jimi Taro Patrick, was found buried in a different area of the property about a half-mile away.

This combination of undated photos provided by the Bucks County District Attorney's Office shows four men who went missing last week: Tom Meo, top left; Jimi Tar Patrick, bottom left; Dean Finocchiaro, top right; and Mark Sturgis, bottom right.

DiNardo, who was arrested Wednesday after trying to sell a victim's vehicle July 9, reportedly named a co-conspirator involved in three of the killings during his confession, who was then taken into custody Thursday, the Associated Press reported.

Weintraub says they've found additional remains on a sprawling farm in suburban Philadelphia that they still have yet to identify.

Finocchiaro, Meo and Sturgis all knew each other, the AP reported, and news outlets have reported that cars belonging to two of the men have been located.

Authorities have been searching properties owned by the parents of first person of interest Cosmo DiNardo, 20, of Bensalem, Pa.

Cosmo DiNardo is accused of trying to sell another victim's auto after he disappeared.

Officials said there were signs some or all of the men knew one another and were working to discover their links.

Authorities found the body of one of the men, 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, buried at a farm in Solebury Township farm. The charging documents state that DiNardo and Kratz made a decision to rob Finocchiaro instead.

DiNardo and Kratz have each provided statements to investigators, and DiNardo has described Kratz as his cousin, according to the district attorney's office.

Eric Beitz, who said he had hung out with DiNardo in recent weeks, told philly.com that DiNardo routinely sold guns and on multiple occasions had talked "about weird things like killing people and having people killed".

The district attorney has said it is now a homicide investigation.

Dinardo, who was arrested for theft on Wednesday, confessed to his involvement in the killings the next day, his attorney Paul Lang said.

The three men exited the truck, according to the affidavit, and DiNardo allegedly shot Meo in the back with a.357 handgun, then fired several times at Sturgis as he ran.

Prosecutors confirmed DiNardo will not face the death penalty after agreeing to plead guilty to four first-degree murder counts.

As DiNardo was being led by authorities into a police van Thursday evening, reporters asked him whether he had any sympathy for the victims' families.

DiNardo was initially arrested on Monday on charges relating to illegal possession of a shotgun and ammunition.

"I'm not sure", he said, "we could ever answer that question".

Investigators say DiNardo is an admitted drug dealer with a history of mental illness, CBS2 reported.

Later that same day, DiNardo shot Sturgis and Meo and placed them in the same tank as Finocchiaro.

Patrick and Cosmo Dinardo, whose parents own the farmland, graduated from Holy Ghost Preparatory School a year apart from each other, school spokesman Bill Doherty said.
