Thomas Meo and Mark Sturgis were ready to buy some pot.
Did the four men know each other? He used a backhoe to move the body into a metal tank.
Twenty-year-old Cosmo DiNardo has been charged with the murder of all four and investigators now say he had an accomplice Sean Kratz who is charged with three counts of homicide.
A judge entered not-guilty pleas on their behalf and they are being held without bail.
The memorial ceremony is set for the Garden of Reflection 9/11 Memorial in Newtown Township, the hometown of one of the victims, Jimi Taro Patrick, 19.
The horrific case of four murdered young men wound to a close on Friday, as law enforcement officials announced they had apprehended the two men who police believe are exclusively responsible for the men's deaths and the disfigurement of their bodies.
As a law enforcement official escorted a shackled DiNardo from the courthouse on Thursday, he said "I'm sorry". Investigators continue to dig and sift through dirt at the Solebury Township farm where the bodies were discovered.
Investigators located Patrick's body Thursday. Their arrival came just hours after authorities took Kratz into custody at a Northeast Philadelphia home late Thursday night.
In exchange for this admission, Dinardo hopes to be able to avoid the death penalty, according to his lawyer.
Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub said that if he hadn't made the deal, "we'd still be looking" for Jimi Patrick's body, which was buried about half of a mile away from the other grave. "I don't know what convinced him (to confess)". "I'd like to think that he wanted to help us get these boys home".
Sheldon Silver's Corruption Conviction Has Been Overturned
The question presented to us, however, is not how a jury would likely view the evidence presented by the Government. Another part of the McDonnell case that might come into play is the role of low-key favors in Silver's conviction.
In exchange for DiNardo's cooperation, Lang said, prosecutors were taking the death penalty off the table. The homeowner later posted the video to his Facebook page, where a witness - whose neighbor was dating Kratz at the time - identified him in the footage, the document states. DiNardo admitted to killing Patrick after he didn't have the $8,000 he agreed to pay for four pounds of marijuana.
"I'm not sure I could if we could ever answer that question", he said at a news conference Friday afternoon.
It's not clear why Dinardo cooperated. DiNardo told Patrick he could sell him a shotgun for another $800. Kratz, 20, faces 20 charges, including three of criminal homicide.
The 90-acre farm property was used as a killing field.
On July 7, DiNardo and Kratz met with Finocchiaro, also involving marijuana sales. The remains of only one, 19-year-old Dean Finocchiaro, have been identified, though authorities said other remains were found in the hole as well. DiNardo said they drove around the property on his ATV and that Kratz was going to rob Finocchiaro in the woods, but failed to do so. Sturgis' father said he had heard his son and Meo mention Finocchiaro in the past.
It was the discovery of Meo's auto on a DiNardo family property a half-mile from the farm that led to Cosmo DiNardo's re-arrest.

At this point, court documents say, Meo was screaming in pain and Dinardo climbed into a backhoe and ran over the injured Meo, killing him. He then took him to a remote farm and shot him with a 22 caliber rifle and used a backhoe to dig a grave to bury the body.
"We are not here to make moral judgments on any of their actions", Weintraub said Friday. Then, according to a police affidavit, he placed the Finocchiaro's body in a metal tank he referred to as the "pig roaster", doused the corpse in gasoline, and lit it ablaze.
