Second person in custody in connection to quadruple murder

The gruesome discovery is the latest development in the search for Finocchiaro, Jimi Tar Patrick, 19; Mark Sturgis, 22 and 21-year-old Tom Meo.

Officials found several bodies buried in a 12-foot mass grave on a Pennsylvania farm. Weintraub will lay out the case in detail Friday afternoon, according to a spokesman.

Cosmo DiNardo was being held on US$5 million (NZ$6.83 million) cash bail after he was charged with trying to sell another victim's auto after he disappeared.

After driving to the farm to complete the sale, Patrick, a fellow student with DiNardo at a Catholic high school for boys, said he only had $800. DiNardo told authorities that he and Patrick had arranged to meet on the farm for a marijuana drug deal, but once Patrick had arrived, DiNardo fatally shot him instead. DiNardo then continued to shoot at his body after he had died, The Daily Mail said. He said he used a backhoe to dig the hole in which he buried Patrick's body.

Authorities have arrested the son of the property owner where the search is underway on an unrelated gun charge, WTXF reported, and are holding him as they try and figure out the relationships among the men.

He admitted to being with his cousin when they agreed to rob Finocchiaro and picked him up.

Dinardo told investigators, in the affidavit, he shot Meo and Sturgis as they exited the truck.

Later the same day, DiNardo picked up Meo and Sturgis. Top row: Dean Finocchiaro, 18, left, and Tom Meo, 21. Sturgis then attempted to run away, prompting DiNardo to shoot him until he ran out of ammunition. Sturgis was struck and fell to the ground.

In addition to charges of criminal homicide, both men faced multiple counts of robbery, conspiracy and abuse of a corpse, according to court documents reviewed by ABC News. It is unclear if either man has entered a plea to the charges against them. However, court documents note, Kratz claimed Dinardo shot Finocciaro.

Activist Mommy Rallies Prayers For Baby Charlie Gard
The European Court of Human Rights has refused the parents' appeal to take him to the United States for experimental treatment. But all of that changed after the president offered to help the terminally-ill British baby.

His lawyer Paul Yang said that in exchange for the confession, prosecutors agreed to remove any death penalty.

An attorney for DiNardo's parents, Antonio and Sandra DiNardo, issued a statement Wednesday saying the couple sympathize with the families of the missing men and are cooperating "in every way possible with the investigation".

"I'm satisfied at this time that we have the two men locked up that need to be brought to justice", Weintraub said at the press conference. Lang said DiNardo has deep remorse. The Dinardo family owns a cement and construction company called Cosan LLC.

Dinardo was released Tuesday evening after his father paid 10% of his $1 million bail in cash. DiNardo was allegedly stranded in the woods for a day after the crash and suffered a severe brain bleed.

Another vehicle helped authorities put Dinardo behind bars while they investigated the case.

This story has been corrected to show DiNardo is 20, not 22.

According to Beitz, DiNardo also sold marijuana and guns and aggressively sought new customers.

DiNardo has been charged with possessing a firearm despite an involuntary mental health commitment. Charges include burglary, theft, receiving stolen property and more.

Kratz was also arrested for alleged shoplifting in Montgomery County last December, but that case was closed and PEOPLE was unable to determine how it was resolved. Dinardo's bail was set at $5 million after the district attorney argued that he was a flight risk. Kratz's is being on an unspecified bail amount.
