Missing 'Boys' Add Up to Big Mystery in Bucks County Pennsylvania

Missing 'Boys' Add Up to Big Mystery in Bucks County Pennsylvania

Cadaver dogs led authorities to the spot on the 90-acre (36-hectare) farm in Solebury Township where they discovered the remains inside a 12½-foot-deep (3.66-meter-deep) common grave.

Wil Snyder, 19, who called himself one of Finocchiaro's best friends, told the Bucks County Courier Times that Finocchiaro worked a retail job. -Weintraub says he believes "foul play" is involved in the disappearances.

The search is not over, and there are still more human remains in the grave, Weintraub said.

He vowed to "bring each and every one of these lost boys home to their families" during a midnight news conference. Patrick was last seen by his family on July 5 and the others have been missing since July 7. Online records suggest he attended the same Catholic high school as Patrick but was a year ahead. They also own a nearby farm parcel that was also searched and a concrete company near their home in Bensalem, closer to Philadelphia.

"We're going to start looking seriously at the homicide charges and in fact we already have pursued that option", Weintraub said, noting he could not comment on the type of homicide. "Mr. Dinardo is a person of interest in this case, but sometimes the chasm between being a person of interest and being a person who is accused, arrested and convicted of a crime is so wide that we never cross it".

Authorities found the vehicle on Sunday, along with Meo's auto keys and title, in a garage on a Solebury Township property owned by DiNardo's parents, Weintraub said. "On June the 9th, we allege that Cosmo DiNardo attempted to sell Meo's vehicle for $500 to a friend whose identity we know but are protecting in court documents for potential safety". He apparently was the first of the men to go missing. DiNardo was arrested on Monday on unrelated firearms charges and was held in jail with a bond of $1M.

Meo's diabetic kit, "which he would never leave without", was found inside the auto, Weintraub said.

TWEETS: The mixed reaction to the drawn test series
It wasn't to be and the man in the middle bore the brunt of the frustration with the lack of a clear outcome. We're accepting of whatever decisions are made.

"We have people combing the entire county working on this case and the amount of manpower that we've deployed just at this property is mind-boggling", Weiintraub said.

The earlier charge stems from accusations that DiNardo was caught with a shotgun and ammunition in February despite a prior mental health commitment. "I don't understand the science behind it", Weintraub said, "but those dogs could smell these poor boys twelve-and-a-half feet below the ground". The other remains remained unidentified when Weintraub gave his next update Thursday morning.

Meo and Sturgis had been spotted Friday evening in the Doylestown area, confirmed as friends who went out together sometimes by Sturgis's father.

"I am very, very pleased, paradoxically, with our progress", Weintraub said.

No one has been charged in Finocchiaro's death or the disappearance of the other men.

Weintraub stated: "We've been treating this from the outset as a criminal investigation and nothing has deterred that from this point".
