DiNardo Family property and real estate
in New Hope, Bucks County, PA
Published: July 16, 2017
Earlier this month, family and friends became concerned when four young men, nearly-twenty somethings, went missing in Bucks County, PA. The local authorities began searching for at first one, then two, three and four of these young men within hours of their missing appearances. What no one expected was the worst news a family could hear that they were victims to gruesome murders and their remains would be buried across a local farm in Solebury Township, Bucks County PA. In order for the authorities to conduct their search, they began scouring through the DiNardo family property and real estate in Bucks County.
While the local news channels, newspapers and bloggers alongside national news outlets will cover the full story, as local Bucks County real estate agents serving local communities in Solebury Township, New Hope and surrounding central Bucks region, we outlined the specific DiNardo Family properties first reported on NBC10. This article further outlines the DiNardo Family Real Estate in Delaware Valley and Bucks County, PA.
As soon as Cosmo DiNardo became the suspect in the matter, before understanding the full motive and circumstances surrounding the murders (drugs, gun sales, mental conditions, accomplices, etc), the Dinadro family farm in Solebury Township became the target of their investigation. Since Cosmo DiNardo was heir-apparent to the family real estate holdings, we have received questions about what farm, farm houses, properties and homes are in question in this case which likely will not be brought to trial until the local authorities conduct their full investigation.
We’ve put together a history of purchases and acquisitions which consist of the DiNardo family property and real estate today.
