The schizophrenic son of wealthy trucking and concrete business owners has confessed to killing four young men after selling them marijuana and burning their bodies at his family's farm in Bucks County, Penn., ABC News reported Thursday. The remains of only one, 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, have been identified, though authorities said other remains were found in the hole as well. According to the affidavit, he said Kratz shot Finocchiaro in the head as they were leaving a barn on the site.

The mystery of the four men's disappearances transfixed the Philadelphia area over the past week, taking a grisly turn when human remains were discovered in a 12½-foot-deep grave on a farm.

All four victims were found buried on an 80-acre farm in Solebury, Pennsylvania, owned by DiNardo's family. And Dean Finocchiaro, 18, of Middletown Township, Bucks County, was also last seen alive Friday.

The auto was then found on land owned by Antonio and Sandra Dinardo, the parents of Cosmo.

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

Shortly after, Dinardo and Kratz allegedly planned to pick up Meo and Sturgis, take them to the large property and then rob them.

Patrick graduated from Holy Ghost Preparatory School in 2016, where Dinardo was a 2015 graduate, school spokesman Bill Doherty said.

The search has focused on the extensive property - owned by Dinardo's parents, Antonio and Sandra, according to prosecutors - in Solebury Township.

As far as Sean Kratz's criminal history, we know he has an open charge of robbery out of Philadelphia...

When they arrived, Patrick said he only had $800, and Dinardo agreed to sell him a shotgun for that amount.

Although the Vandenberg Gate remains closed, " the base is otherwise returning to normal operations ", officials added. Bedford police said they are aware of the ongoing incident but there is "no danger to the community at this time".

As police led the handcuffed suspect to a van Thursday evening, DiNardo said "I'm sorry" when asked by reporters whether he had sympathy for the victims' families.

Once their bodies transported on the property of the parents Dinardo, they would have been burnt in a roasting pan for the pigs.

Data from a police license plate reader captured Dinardo's pickup and Meo's vehicle driving in Solebury Township within seconds of each other at 7:49 p.m. Friday, court documents said.

Also on July 7, Dinardo said he met Meo (fifth photo) and Sturgis (sixth photo) at a church parking lot in Peddlers Village, a short distance west of the Dinardo property on Route 202 in Lahaska, the court records say.

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. The charging documents state that DiNardo told police, "When they turned their backs on me, I shot Tom in the back".

Authorities had charged DiNardo earlier this year with having a gun despite an involuntary mental health commitment.

Kratz gave a similar statement to detectives on Thursday night, the affidavit says, but said that it was Dinardo, not him, who shot Finocchiaro. His lawyers, however, said his mental illness was being exploited in the case.

DiNardo also had been arrested Monday and held on $1 million bail on an old gun charge, before his father paid $100,000 to bail him out Tuesday.

The police authorities then ordered the research on all the properties of the torque, in order to find clues that may lead to the four men that it was now no news since five days.
