Cosmo Dinardo's attorney, Paul Lang, said Dinardo made the confession to Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub and told investigators where the bodies were buried in exchange for avoiding the death penalty, reported Reuters. So far, investigators said they have only been able to identify one set of remains - those of Finocchiaro. Sturgis and Meo are last seen that day, as is Dean Finocchiaro, 19, of Middletown Township.
ORIGINAL STORY: Pennsylvania authorities and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are searching for four young men between the ages of 19 and 22 who vanished within days of each other last week, one on Wednesday and three on Friday.
Police focused the search for four days on the land around properties owned by Antonio and Sandra Dinardo, as their son Cosmo, 20, has been identified as a "person of interest" in the case.
Cosmo DiNardo was arrested after investigators found he tried to sell a missing young man's vehicle the day after he vanished. According to NBC, police searched two properties both owned by the man's family on Sunday and Monday, as part of their missing persons investigation. It's unclear what, if any, connection the disappearances might have, but investigators did confirm that the four men know each other.

An admitted drug dealer with a history of mental illness was charged Friday with the killings of four Pennsylvania men who vanished a week ago.
Local authorities were searching for the bodies of four young men who all disappeared last week. DiNardo was arrested on Wednesday for allegedly trying to sell Tom Meo's 1996 Nissan Maxima for $500.
DiNardo is a person of interest in the four disappearances and was previously been taken into custody on an unrelated gun charge, authorities said. On Saturday, they got a break: Mr. Finocchiaro's cellphone was tracked to the farm in Solebury Township, where they found Mr. Meo's vehicle. An unidentified source, however, told the Associated Press that DiNardo said he killed the men at separate times after selling them marijuana and then burned their bodies at the family farm.
Weintraub, when asked if foul play was involved, said during the news conference: "It sure would seem so".
He is being held in the Bucks County jail on $5 million cash bail.
