Philadelphia Police were on the scene at the Solebury Township farm owned by Cosmo DiNardo ‘s Thursday morning for an extensive “walk-through” of the property to ensure no evidence has been missed, according to the Bucks County District Attorney’s Office.



DiNardo, who has confessed to killing four missing men at the property, also told authorities that he killed two other people, a male and a female, both in Philadelphia when he was 15. Philadelphia police said Wednesday they were investigating the claim but had very little information to proceed and were waiting for Bucks County officials to disclose more details.

Philadelphia Police spokesman Jeff Chrusch confirmed Philadelphia police were on the property Thursday morning, working under the direction of the Bucks County district attorney’s office. Video footage of the activity was broadcast by Fox29.


“There is increased activity out on the Solebury property today because investigators are considering releasing the crime scene soon,” Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub said in a statement. “Because of that, and because renewed probable cause would be required for us to revisit the property once it is released to its owners, we want to make absolutely certain that we have not missed any evidence before departing.”

“To that end, and because of the vast size of the property itself, a large number of law enforcement personnel, police cadets and others, including horses and dogs, are required for this comprehensive walk-through,” Weintraub added.

Live footage from Fox29 showed several police vehicles parked near a house on the property around 10:30 a.m. Thursday.





The Bucks County District Attorney’s Office this week had been working to clean up the scene where law enforcement searched last week for the remains of four young men who went missing earlier this month.

DiNardo confessed last Thursday to the killings of Jimi T. Patrick, 19, of Newtown; Dean A. Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown Township; Thomas C. Meo, 21, of Plumstead Township; and Mark P. Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg, Montgomery County. Prosecutors say Dinardo, 20, from Bensalem, with help from his cousin Sean Kratz, also 20, lured the men to his property under the guise of selling them marijuana. He admitted shooting and killing them and burying the bodies on his parents’  90-acre property.
