Authorities searched through a vast Philadelphia farm, looking to uncover the whereabouts of four men who went missing last week. Early Thursday morning, investigators discovered multiple human remains buried in a 12.5-foot-deep common grave at a farm in Solebury Township, Pennsylvania.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said that one victim has been identified as 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, one of the men who mysteriously went missing last week.
The other three missing men are 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick.
On Wednesday, police arrested 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo for allegedly attempting to sell the cars of one of the missing men only a day after he was last seen. He’s currently being held on $5 million bail.
Cosmo’s father owns the farm where the human remains were found.
DiNardo hasn’t been charged regarding Finocchiaro’s death. However, he is “a person of interest” regarding the investigation into Finocchiaro’s death and the disappearance of the three other men, according to authorities.
One of Cosmo’s friends, Eric Beitz of Bensalem, told The Philadelphia Inquirer about how his friend would talk openly about “killing people.”
“I can tell you on multiple different occasions, on multiple different accounts, from multiple different people, including myself –- Cosmo has spoken about weird things like killing people and having people killed,” Beitz told reporters. “Everybody you talk to about this guy, you hear he’s mentally unstable.”
