On Thursday, July 13, 20-year-old Pennsylvania man, Cosmo Dinardo, confessed to his involvement in the murders of four young men in eastern Pennsylvania. Last week, Jimi Patrick, Thomas Meo, Dean Finocchiaro, and Mark Sturgis went missing over several days last week, each within a mile of each other.
According to Dinardo’s attorney Paul Land, Dinardo admitted “his participation or commission in the murders of the four young men.” Land did not specify whether Dinardo personally killed the four men. Because of Dinardo’s confession, the Bucks County prosecutor will not seek the death penalty during trial.
Dinardo was arrested on Tuesday, July 11, after allegedly attempting to sell Meo’s car one day after Meo was reported missing. On Wednesday, July 12, remains of 19-year-old Finocchiaro were found on Dinardo’s family owned, Philadelphia property. According to Lang, Dinardo informed police where the other three bodies were located.
The investigation into this incident is ongoing.
