Police found the missing men – Dean Finocchiaro, Thomas Meo, Jimi Patrick, and Mark Sturgis – after a grueling, five-day search. Three were lit on fire and placed 12-feet deep in an oil tank converted into a pig roaster. DiNardo allegedly lured them to his family’s 90-acre farm under the guise of making marijuana deals.
