Authorities in Bucks County, Pennsylvania say the body of one of four men who had been missing since last week has been found.
At about midnight on Wednesday, Bucks County District Attorney Matt Weintraub said that the remains of 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, had been found in a twelve-and-a-half-foot-deep "common grave" on a farm in Solesbury Township. "Make no doubt about it", Weintraub said at a news conference, describing how investigators had spent days searching land owned by Dinardo's parents in Solebury Township - an area that the district attorney's office describes as normally placid and picturesque.
A day later authorities came across the macabre discovery of Finocchiaro's remains amongst other human remains.
Jimi Patrick, 19, of Newtown Township, has been missing since last Wednesday and Mark Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg; Thomas Meo, 21, of Plumstead Township, and Dean Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown Township, have been missing since Friday.
Also on Monday, police began to focus their search on farmland owned by the DiNardo family in Solebury Township.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the case against 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo. Both Meo and Sturgis' cars were reportedly found.
