5:04 am
number of sources because at this point the district attorney when he cancelled yesterday afternoon's press conference he has not addressed the media since confession broke. we are waiting to hear from him later this morning. what cosmo dinardo's attorney told thaws his client admit hissed guilt and told investigators where they can find bodies in exchange for a life spared. d.a. promised him death penalty would be off the table , despite confess to go killing and burning the bodies of four young men, dean finocchiaro, tom meo, jimi patrick and mark sturgis. remains of the finocchiaro has been located in a 12-foot hole on dinardo's expansive solebury township farm. according to the source dinardo told prosecutors there are two separate grave sites on the farm which contain all four bodies. we still do not know exact relationship between the victim and dinardo, source tells fox 29 news a motive in this case may be related to a drug deal and a gun. dinardo's attorney addressed reporters yesterday as his

5:06 am
investigation. yesterday we broke news about an arrest of the second person of interest in this case, our steve keeley picks up the story from there, steve. >> reporter: for sure it is a nervous few days for this 20 year-old accomplice who salt home wondering if his name would ever come up. imagine him watching television news at 5:40 and seeing that his accomplice has confessed and that has dimed him out. thinking that might happen, bucks detectives quickly notified philadelphia police before this guy could run knowing that he would get pick up, to go get him before he could take off, and once word got out about that confession philadelphia police were right here on the house, where is this? this is lawncrest section right off of roosevelt boulevard, intersection of the oxford and magee a row house on the edge of mcgee's block right there. this is just a 20 minute, 13- mile relatively quick drive
5:07 am
to dinardo's bensalem home. these guys essentially friends and neighbors. expect bucks detectives to go back to this northeast philly house armed with the search warrant to see what this guy has got in his place in terms of the any possible evidence for this case beside having just the word of a confessed killer saying this guy is involve. we have learned this second person has a criminal history themselves in philadelphia and history of being a victim of violence. philadelphia police source tells us he was just shot in another incident in march. now through confession if you weren't paying attention dinardo says this guy only helped in three of the four murders and heard jenny explaining two separate graves on the solebury property this guy helped kill three, set bodies on fire and then bury the three according to dinardo's confession and dinardo may be brought back there in handcuffs and leg irons today karen and thomas to pinpoint for detectives and search teams where that second
5:08 am
grave is if they cannot find it based on his directions and descriptions. because that one property that want farm, one of the many properties they own is 68 acres wide they may know that property by back of the hand from seeing where any soft dirt may be but that may be the initial grave of jimi patrick, a source tells us and he may be taken there to show him where his body may be underground. >> so many swift moving developments, thanks, steve. family member of the one of the victim tom meo speaking out about this tragedy. meo's uncle lives in kansas city, missouri and sat down with our sister station to share his thoughts about thomas and says it is just so hard for the family. >> it is tough, i think anybody who has been through a tragedy like this could imagine. it is really tough. >> they say tom was a good kid who liked to help people work on their homes.
5:09 am

5:36 am
of interest in this case. our steve keeley has the story on than that, steve. >> reporter: yeah, count me as not surprised at all when we learn through dinardo confession that he says he had an accomplice because yesterday we reported right here on this show at this hour that a source close to this case reported that to us that he likely had help especially when you look at how big, how deep that gravies. i will get out of the way we are getting hit by somebody here. hours after that was confirmed by a killer's confession just as confession became public philadelphia police were net filed by detectives in bucks county to go grab second accomplish dinardo name before that second person knew he had been informed by dinardo and before bucks detectives cold drive down quickly enough to go get him. philly police got him at oxford and magee just off roosevelt boulevard in philly 's lawncrest section where bucks detectives and evidence recovery teams will
5:37 am
likely go back real soon with the search warrant. bucks authorities picked up this person at northeast detectives about 1:00 a.m., brought them back here to be held, charges likely to follow real soon. we know this accused accomplice through the dinardo lawyers admission about the confession helped dinardo in three of the four killings and we now know there are two separate graves on the dinardo properties this accomplice helped set three of the bodies on fire and then bury them underground 12 feet down. fact that they were burn likely one only one has been positively identified so far. don't be surprised if you hear dinardo being taken back up in legal irons, cuffs to pinpoint where that second gravies, the authorities cannot find it on their own. based on his description, directions hopefully they will find it on their own but from a philadelphia police source fox 29 news has learned that this accomplice has a criminal history here in philadelphia and already a previous shooting his own shot just four months ago, in march.

5:39 am
get it to the floor yet. big weekend, trying to get those votes to get this passed >> g.o.p. senators have created a compromise there, some still are not satisfied what are some of the sticking points. >> reporter: sure, number of changes we have seen, three weeks ago they have been behind closed doors trying to change some stuff get moderates and conservatives on board. biggest thing $70 billion for states, going in the states, they can come up with their own programs to figure out how to help their health care services, health savings accounts can now be used to pay for premiums. this is a big one too, 45 billion more dollars to battle opioid addiction, that is a huge one for many rural states in the middle of the country. this is a sticking point the ability to buy cheaper plans with less coverage. that is what conservatives wanted all along, 22 and healthy, you should be able to buy bear bones coverage. moderates complained they say if you are older, sicker you will be priced out of the market. still a licensing way to go
