United States man confesses to killing four in Pennsylvania

Four young men reported missing in Bucks County

Four young men reported missing in Bucks County

Dinardo, of Bensalem, Pa., was being held on a $5 million cash bail after being arrested Wednesday; one day earlier, he had been deemed a "person of interest" in the missing-persons case after he was accused of trying to sell the auto belonging to one of the missing men.

Authorities are investigating after four men, aged between 19 and 22 years old, went missing over several days last week within miles of each other in Bucks County, Pennsylvania.

Cosmo DiNardo has confessed to his role in four murders.

DiNardo was originally arrested earlier this week over illegally possessing a shotgun and ammunition on a charge filed back in February, but was bailed.

While at the time of writing, it is unknown whether DiNardo is suspected to be involved in the disappearance of the four men, he is now being held on $1 million bail. Sean Kratz, 20, faces 20 counts, including three of criminal homicide.

Positing that DiNardo who was Facebook friends with one of the victims and had a previous outstanding firearms warrant against him, authorities brought DiNardo in on Monday as they sought to "explore" possible involvement.

Earlier, she had achieved another record by scoring seven consecutive fifties in ODIs, again a first in women's ODI cricket. Both started slowly with India taking 18 overs to reach 50, but they accelerated expertly in a 157-run partnership.

Investigators found human remains, including a body identified as one of the victims, on DiNardo's parents' property. Patrick was last seen July 5, while the other three vanished July 7. A reporter asked Weintraub whether he thought the four men were still alive, to which he replied that he hopes and prays they are, as that would obviously be the best outcome. Lang also said DiNardo is remorseful over the crime. When one asked why the police were at his parent's property, DiNardo responded "I have no clue bro, it's weird people keep hitting me up".

One went missing Wednesday and three others on Friday.

Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub (WINE'-trobe) has identified the men who went missing last week as 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo, 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick.

The body found today was that of 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro.

A friend of DiNardo's told HuffPost earlier this week that DiNardo's behavior was altered after he suffered a head injury in a dirt bike accident a few months ago. Investigators also searched a property in Bensalem that the DiNardo family owns, CBS Philly reports.

DiNardo was originally arrested on Monday for an unrelated gun charge. Weintraub said they could not disclose how many bodies they discovered in the 12-foot-deep hole. "I'd like to think that he wanted to help us get these boys home".
