A person of interest has been named in the disappearance of four young men from Pennsylvania. Now the question is, How are Jimi Tar Patrick, 19, Dean Finocchiaro, 18, Mark Sturgis, 22, and Tom Meo, 21, connected to 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo?
The most obvious connection is that Cosmo DiNardo is a Facebook friend of Jimi Tar Patrick.
NBC Philadelphia reports that the alarm was first raised for Jimi Tar Patrick on July 5 when he didn’t show up for work. The station, citing family members, said that his absence without calling was extremely unusual.
A friend of DiNardo’s told Heavy.com that the person of interest is a friend of Dean Finocchiaro’s. The pair are not friends on Facebook. Finocchiaro was last seen getting into the car of a man who is not missing on July 7, reports the Bucks County Times. A friend of Finocchiaro’s, Wil Snyder, told the County Times, “He’s a good guy, a good friend. I don’t think he would do something to cause this.”
Fox Philadelphia reports that Dean Finocchiaro has been arrested multiple times in the past. Those charges include assault, driving under the influence and drug possession. NBC Philadelphia reports that Finocchiaro was an acquaintance of Mark Sturgis and Tom Meo.
The relationship between DiNardo, Sturgis and Meo seems unclear at this point. What we do know is that Sturgis and Meo were close friends. The two were last seen together. ABC Philadelphia reports that Sturgis’ car was found in Peddler’s Village, 6 miles east of where Sturgis and Meo were last seen and three miles south of the Solebury Township, where the search for the missing men is concentrated.
The Courier Times says that the home in Solebury is owned by Antonio and Sandra DiNardo of Bensalem. Cosmo DiNardo is their son.
