Ambler, Pa. (WTXF) - Cosmo DiNardo's confession to killing four young men at his family's Bucks County farm last week included the stunning claim that he had an accomplice: his cousin. Now that man-- 20-year-old Sean Michael Kratz-- is behind bars charged in three of those murders.
Police using metal detectors spent Friday morning scouring a property linked to Kratz on Susquehanna Avenue in Ambler. The search would ultimately lead to the recovery of a .357 handgun.
"Nice kid," said Hale. Ever notice any hint of violence, asked FOX 29's Bruce Gordon. "No, no," replied Hale.
Court documents say Kratz teamed up with Cosmo DiNardo, his cousin, in the murders of Dean Finocchiaro, Mark Sturgis and Tom Meo-- all three lured to Dinardo's Bucks county farm property by the promise of drug deals.
"I can't believe!" said Bill Hale. "I can't believe it and I don't want to believe it!"
Long after investigators had left the Kratz property, FOX 29 paid a visit to the Lutheran church down the road.
"Very sad," said Eileen Ghenn of Worcester. "Tragic. All those lives that were lost and the families whose lives will never be the same. My heart goes out to them."
