Cosmo DiNardo has confessed to his role in four murders. In a stunning confession, the 20-year-old admitted to killing four men and says that he knows where the bodies are. "I'm sorry," the jailed inmate said as he left court today, per ABC News. DeNardo was a drug dealer who felt cheated after selling young men marijuana.
DiNardo's confession pertains to the disappearance of four men in the Philadelphia area over the past week. At least three of the men knew each other. The body of only one, 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, was identified through remains found in a gravesite on a farm in Solebury Township. The farm belongs to the DiNardo family.
DiNardo has told investigators where the rest of the bodies are. Per CBS News, law enforcement officials say that DiNardo suffers from schizophrenia. They did not release a motive for the crime.
The names of the four missing men are: Jimi Tar Patrick, Dean Finocchiaro, Tom Meo and Mark Sturgis.
DiNardo was initially arrested Monday and held on $1 million bail on an unrelated gun charge before his father bailed him out. As part of DiNardo's admission, prosecutors will take the death penalty off the table.
