But he was not arrested again on the charge until July 10, days after the men went missing.

Police re-arrested DiNardo Wednesday when they said their investigation led them to the discovery that DiNardo had tried to sell the vehicle of one of the missing men recently. The other men missing are 22-year-old Mark Sturgis, 21-year-old Tom Meo and 19-year-old Jimi Tar Patrick.

Weintraub said Thursday he does know more about the relationships among the men but can't share more information because he needs to "maintain the integrity of the investigation".

Finocchiaro, Meo and Sturgis all knew each other, the AP reported, and news outlets have reported that cars belonging to two of the men have been located.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to publicly discuss details of the case against 20-year-old Cosmo DiNardo.

DiNardo is accused of killing Patrick on July 5, and burying him in a single grave on a sprawling farm owned by the DiNardo family. Lang said the motive for the murders will come out in time.

Video aired by KYW-TV showed the handcuffed Dinardo emerging from a meeting with authorities and telling reporters "I'm sorry" when asked what he had to say to the families of the men.

A person with firsthand knowledge of DiNardo's confession said he killed the men after he felt cheated or threatened during three drug transactions and then burned their bodies at his family's farm. They went to the property at 6071 Lower York Road; Kratz shot Finocchiaro in the head inside a barn.

Eric Beitz, who said he had hung out with DiNardo in recent weeks, claimed to Philly.com that the killer routinely sold guns and on multiple occasions had talked "about weird things like killing people and having people killed".

Cosmo DiNardo's attorney Paul Lang said his client admitted to "the four murders" and is ready to plead guilty, USA Today reported. The prosecutor had said he thought a backhoe may have been on the property.

"As we are all deeply affected by this news, I encourage you to take care of yourself". Kratz told interviewers DiNardo "basically crushes him" with the backhoe (referring to Meo). "In exchange for that confession, Mr. DiNardo was promised by the district attorney that he will spare his life by not invoking the death penalty".

"I'd like to think that he wanted to help us get these boys home". DiNardo allegedly told investigators he then took the gun and shot Finocchiaro a second time as the victim lay on the ground.

DiNardo's parents, Antonio and Sandra DiNardo, own the farm in upper Bucks County, a bucolic area with rolling hillsides, new housing developments and historic sites.

DiNardo also told detectives he agreed to sell Finocchiaro a quarter-pound of marijuana for about $700 on July 7. Patrick, who was a year behind DiNardo at a Roman Catholic high school for boys, was last seen on July 5; the other three disappeared on Friday.

Meo and Sturgis were both employed by Sturgis' father's construction firm.

DiNardo was initially arrested Monday on charges relating to illegal possession of a shotgun and ammunition.
