Philadelphia police assisted Bucks County authorities as they searched for more clues in the investigation into a man who authorities say confessed to killing two people on his family’s Bucks County farm who allegedly claims to have killed two other people as well.

Philly investigators joined the search of the Cosmo DiNardo’s family farm in Solebury Township, Philly police said.

On Thursday, crews could be seen loading a motorized cart onto a flatbed truck. It is unclear the connection the vehicle has to the investigation.

Authorities have held the scene with a mobile command unit and K-9 search teams at the DiNardo’s family’s farm since uncovering the bodies of Jimi Taro Patrick, 19; Dean Finocchiaro, 19; Mark Sturgis, 22; and Tom Meo, 21, on the sprawling property. A police car remains outside the garage when Meo’s car was discovered.

DiNardo’s past continues to paint a picture of a troubled young man who graduated to the murders of four men he allegedly admitted to shooting and burying on his family’s sprawling rural estate, according to authorities. Three of the bodies were doused in gasoline and lit on fire inside what was described in court documents as a “pig roaster.”

While questioning DiNardo, he allegedly said he previously killed a man and woman in Philadelphia. Earlier this week, Philly Police Commissioner Richard Ross said police would look into the claims.

DiNardo, who has been diagnosed with schizophrenia, was involuntarily committed to a mental institution in the past. The circumstances surrounding that committal remain unclear. He was barred from having a firearm.

Prosecutors said DiNardo’s 20-year-old cousin, Sean Kratz, also participated in the murders. Both have been charged in the case. Kratz’s attorney, Abby Leeds, told NBC10 Tuesday that her client is “presumed innocent.”

Both men remain jailed in Bucks County.
