‘The Lost Boys of Bucks County,’ a documentary on ID, looks into the disappearances and deaths of Dean A. Finocchiaro, Thomas C. Meo, Jimi T. Patrick, and Mark R. Sturgis, all of whom were from Pennsylvania, in 2017. The assassinations not only made headlines, but also rocked the entire country. Sean Michael Kratz, Cosmo DiNardo’s cousin, was also accused and convicted for some of the murders, along with Cosmo DiNardo.
Who is Sean Michael Kratz?
Cosmo DiNardo’s cousin, Sean Michael Kratz, has been charged with three counts of criminal homicide, mistreatment of a corpse, conspiracy to commit murder, and two other crimes. Despite the fact that DiNardo had no past criminal history, Kratz did. He was charged with burglary, criminal mischief, trespassing, and other offenses. Kratz allegedly turned down a plea bargain in July 2018. He was convicted guilty of both first and second-degree manslaughter in November 2019. This was in regards to Tom Meo and Mark Sturgis’ deaths. He was then condemned to life in jail without the possibility of release. He was also ordered to pay $35,000 in reparations, according to the report.
According to rumors, Kratz joined DiNardo to assist with robberies. Before meeting Dean Finocchiaro, he was picked up. Despite the fact that DiNardo agreed to shoot Dean, he claimed that Kratz fired the first shot. Although he offered a contradictory statement, his role in the deaths of Thomas Meo and Mark Sturgis became clearer following the investigation. “He was an absolute and dismal failure,” stated District Attorney Matthew Weintraub. The defendant had so many chances to not only get out of this horrible, wicked, diabolical plan to suffocate the lives of three boys he didn’t even know, but he decided to think solely of himself.” Weintraub further stated that Kratz should not become renowned as a result of the case, but rather as a ‘afterthought.’ Kratz’s defense attorney, Charles Peruto, remarked that he may file an appeal soon and that he is relieved that his client did not receive the death penalty. The reason for Kratz’s withdrawal from the plea arrangement was not specified.
Meo’s mother testified in court, saying, “Everything you, Kratz, took, is exactly what you no longer have the right to receive. You call your cousin a monster. Yes, he’s a sick monster but you’re an evil monster.”
Where is Sean Michael Kratz Now?
Sean Michael Kratz is now incarcerated at SCI Phoenix. He is, however, scheduled to be transported to SCI Camp Hill outside Harrisburg, where the male convicts’ Diagnostic and Classification Center is located. This, according to reports, will decide his custody categorization. Rich Patrick, Jimi Patrick’s grandfather, remarked, “I’d rather him be in maximum security prison. I can’t understand why he’s not when he killed four people.” Adding to it, Weintraub said, “We really don’t have any say or control where a person convicted of a crime serves sentence, no matter how heinous.”
