Philly Police looking into claims DiNardo reportedly made during confession

Cosmo DiNardo remains behind bars accused of the deaths of four Bucks County men. A line in the New York Times has a lot of people talking. Could he been linked to additional killings?

The 90-acre Solebury corn field--the scene of last week's frantic search--has grown quiet. However, the controversy around Cosmo DiNardo has not faded.

DiNardo's Bucks County attorney deflected all questions Monday about reporting on the front page of Monday's New York Times that DiNardo told investigators he killed two people in Philadelphia when he was 15 years old.

The spokesperson for Philadelphia police says homicide investigators are aware DiNardo made statements regarding killings in the city. They are attempting to determine if there is a link between the claims and any unsolved cases, but have few details.

The spokesperson says The Bucks County District Attorney is vetting all statements made by DiNardo in his Thursday confession.

In his Friday new conference and in documents detailing the killings, D.A. Weintraub made no mention of murders beyond the four young men DiNardo says he and his cousin killed in the field in early July.

Weintraub's spokesperson said Monday his office was not the source of information to the New York Times and will not talk about this issue.

FOX 29 has been in contact with someone who knows DiNardo and says he has tendency to exaggerate about acts of violence.
