Investigators found the body of one of four missing young men in addition to other human remains buried on a Pennsylvania farm, according to the Associated Press.  Cadaver dogs led authorities to a 12.5-foot-deep common grave.

The body of Dean Finocchiaro, 19, who is pictured above on the right, was identified. Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub called it a homicide but he did give any more specifics at this time. There are human remains of others in the grave, but police do not yet know how many.

He vowed to "bring each and every one of these lost boys home to their families” during a midnight news conference.

The other men are 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick. One of the missing, Patrick, attended a Catholic high school for boys with the suspect. Cosmo DiNardo, 20, was arrested on Wednesday after he tried to sell Meo's 1996 Nissan Maxima to a friend after his disappearance, according to NBC Philadelphia.

DiNardo’s parents own the farm. Police are pursuing homicide charges against him.
