    Read at another place and watching Primetime Justice now...the POS confessed.
    He did it so they would take DO off the table.
    Wow! This is a crazy case.

    Maybe he'll tell how he managed to lure, execute and bury those young men 12 feet down by himself.

    I'm thinking there is an accomplice or 'helper' somewhere in this craziness.

    Reading here



    Lots of info on this there.

    Fucking piece of shit drug dealer. All that money his family had and he sold drugs and guns. He felt threatened by them but he has guns, not buying that excuse.

    I don't believe he acted alone either, no way could he dig that 12 foot grave. He also burned them. You can't tell me no one saw all this going on. Did daddy help, just my opinion?

    How did cadaver dogs detect Bucks County bodies 12 feet underground?

    July 13, 2017


    The search for four missing men in Bucks County this week spread far — an overgrown 90-acre property — and deep. It ultimately led investigators 12 feet below the ground after dogs picked up the scent of human remains.

    “I don’t understand the science behind it, but those dogs could smell these poor boys 12˝ feet below the ground,” District Attorney Matthew D. Weintraub said after the grim discovery was announced in a midnight news conference that spilled into Thursday.

    “It is a science,” said Mark Hopkins, chief of Greater Philadelphia Search and Rescue. “It is also a bit of an art because it is interpretive.”

    Hopkins’ team, which was not involved in the Bucks County search, has three trained cadaver dogs. Over 40 years, the all-volunteer group has responded to more than 100 searches for human remains, Hopkins said.

    Hopkins speculated that the “abundance of tragedy” in the Bucks County case, along with the hot July temperature, loose soil, and probably some trace evidence at the surface, combined to boost the dogs’ ability to get a hit 12 feet underground.

    While biology plays a huge role – dogs’ snouts are hundreds of thousands of times more sensitive than humans’ – the handler is arguably the more important partner on the team, Hopkins said.

    Handlers need to be in good physical shape to keep up with their dogs. They need to keep an open mind, be able to follow orders, and participate in twice-a-week training, he said.

    They also need to trust their dog and pick up on signals when the dog makes a hit, he said. Most train their dogs to signal them by sitting, jumping on them, or barking, he said.

    That training is not pretty, Hopkins said. Handlers purchase scents to simulate the smell of decomposing remains. They also collect samples of soil from crime scenes like the one in Bucks County to use in training — only after the scene is cleared by law enforcement and proper permission is obtained, he said.

    “We bury it, elevate it, and put it in water,” Hopkins said of the training process. They also put it into concrete. Some dogs only search on land, while others can traverse land or water.

    “Just like humans, some don’t do boats,” Hopkins said.

    What keeps dogs from hitting on the scent of a dead squirrel or chicken parts in the garbage? Their noses are sensitive enough to distinguish the different acid breakdowns of different species, Hopkins said.

    Dogs have been known to hit on remains that are a hundred years old, he said.

    AP Source: Cosmo DiNardo killed 4 men separately, burned them

    Updated 32 mins ago
    SOLEBURY TWP., Pa. (WPVI) -- A drug dealer has confessed to killing four young men separately after selling them marijuana and then burning their bodies at his family's farm, a person with firsthand knowledge of his confession said Thursday.

    The person spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to publicly discuss details of the case. The person said a co-conspirator was involved in the shooting deaths of three of the men, who had been reported missing.

    The details were provided after one of Cosmo DiNardo's lawyers said Thursday that DiNardo had confessed to murdering the missing men, who included a Maryland college student, and had told investigators where their bodies were.

    DiNardo, 20, agreed to plead guilty to four first-degree murder counts, attorney Paul Lang said outside court, where DiNardo had met with investigators.

    "I'm sorry," a shackled DiNardo said as he left the courthouse.

    The person with firsthand knowledge of DiNardo's confession said the men were killed after DiNardo felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions. DiNardo sold quarter-pound quantities of marijuana for several thousand dollars and sold handguns to area residents, the person said.

    "Every death was related to a purported drug transaction, and at the end of each one there's a killing," the person said.

    Full Story and Video at link:

    The DA won't give a press conference until 11 am tomorrow morning. At this time, DiNardo is still being called a person of interest and not charged in the deaths, yet.

    I think this story still goes deeper and this POS liar probably will name one of the dead men as his accomplice. IMO.

    Cosmo DiNardo confesses to killing four men, claims he had an accomplice

    July 13, 2017

    snipped

    One of DiNardo’s lawyers emerged after a late-afternoon meeting with investigators in Doylestown and said the 20-year-old Bensalem man had confessed to “participation or commission” of the killings and told the district attorney where to find the bodies.

    In return, lawyer Paul Lang said, prosecutors had pledged not to seek the death penalty for DiNardo. He gave no motive for the killings.

    A person with knowledge of the case told the Inquirer and Daily News late Thursday that under the agreement, DiNardo admitted that three of the men’s bodies had been dumped in a 12-foot grave discovered Wednesday on his family’s sprawling Solebury Township farm. DiNardo was also expected to help them find the remains of the fourth victim somewhere on the property, which is owned by his parents.

    The same person, who requested anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss the case, said DiNardo told investigators there was a coconspirator in the killings.

    Police took another person into custody late Thursday night in the 800 block of Magee Avenue in Northeast Philadelphia, according to a second source with knowledge of the investigation. Bucks County detectives were working to determine whether he could be the co-conspirator, the source said.

    The Associated Press reported late Thursday that DiNardo sold quarter-pound quantities of marijuana for several thousand dollars and that the victims were killed after DiNardo felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions. The wire service cited an unidentified source with knowledge of the confession who said DiNardo admitted he killed the men separately — at least three were shot — and then burned their bodies at the farm.

    snipped

    All four of the missing men appeared to be connected to DiNardo through school or social interactions, based on friends’ accounts, school information, and a review of social media. Snapchat text messages provided to the Inquirer and Daily News showed that DiNardo appeared unconcerned about Finocchiaro’s whereabouts, and included a photo DiNardo took of himself making an intense face, eyes wide, pointing what appears to be a revolver at the camera. Another acquaintance said DiNardo spoke of “killing people.”

    Rumors swirled on social media Thursday, including one that William Riddle, who was arrested last month for beating up another young man at Temple University, had a connection to the killings. Riddle was friends with Finocchiaro, according to their social media accounts. Law enforcement sources say they have no information that the cases are connected, and that the four victims were not witnesses to the Temple assault.

    snipped

    There were reports the suspect’s parents, Antonio and Sandra DiNardo, had been called Thursday to a grand jury hearing at the Doylestown building where their son would later admit to killing the men.

    As to whether DiNardo’s parents were involved, Lang said: “I’ll leave that for their attorney.… As far as I know, no.” He also said he could not answer questions about whether DiNardo acted alone.

    Read Texts About 4 Missing Pennsylvania Men From Person Of Interest Cosmo DiNardo

    snipped

    “Cosmo isn’t your buddy Dean missing,” one person in the group message asked last weekend. “Aren’t you worried about buddydead [sic] dean.”

    “I mean, I know the kid,” Cosmo answered. “But yeah I feel bad for his parents. He’s a pill-popping junky who had 2 duis… He prob just jumped parole Or probation.”

    The group messages shared were part of a Snapchat conversation titled, “Tom WYA,” a reference to Tom Meo, one of the missing men. WYA stood for “where you at?”

    “Tom where the [expletive] you at?” one message read. “Mark where the [expletive] you at? Dean aka Ryan Smith where the [expletive] you at?”

    Two unidentified participants in the conversation said Ryan Smith was a pseudonym for Finocchiaro.

    snipped

    In another portion of the messages, DiNardo complained about people coming onto his family’s property.

    “Yeah well a bunch of people went to my properties and now the cops are waiting to arrest them for trespassing,” he said.

    DiNardo also said he couldn’t understand why investigators were searching the land.

    “Because no reason for people tone [sic] at my place where we don’t live,” he wrote. “I have no clue bro it’s weird people keep hitting me up I have no idea what’s up.”

    Mr. DiNardo has had 30 “contacts” with the Bensalem Police Department over the last six years, the department’s director, Frederick Harran, said in a telephone interview. He declined to elaborate on what they involved but said the suspect was well known to the police.

    IMO now knowing that the murderer was well known to LE, LE knew from the beginning he was involved with the mens disappearances. So much being revealed each day.

    "...In 2015 and 2016, DiNardo was appointed to Bensalem Township’s Drug and Alcohol Advisory Board, records show. The city’s mayor appoints members of the board and they are approved by the township council, according to the township website. ..."

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

    from same link:

    "...DiNardo had been arrested Monday, on a refiled weapons charge that had been dismissed in late May. Because he had previously been involuntarily committed for mental health treatment, DiNardo was prohibited from possessing firearms under Pennsylvania law – but he had a Savage Arms 20-gauge shotgun and ammunition when he was arrested in February, according to court documents.

    The charge was dismissed because the mental health paperwork was filed improperly, Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran said Thursday. It had to be corrected before the district attorney could authorize the charges to be filed again. He did so on June 21, but DiNardo was not arrested until after the search for the missing men had begun. Weintraub has said the timing was “out of our control.”..."

    I'm a little confused... I've seen some say that they owed him, which is why he was selling Mao's car and how he got them there. Some think it's a new buy and he got them all to come out.
