The parents of Mark Sturgis, one of the four young men murdered and buried in graves on a Bucks County farm outside of Philadelphia, have retained Ross Feller Casey to represent them civilly.

Last week, after an exhaustive search that drew nationwide media focus, authorities announced that they had recovered the remains of the four missing young men, including Sturgis, in graves on a farm in Solebury, Bucks County, Pa.

Cosmo DiNardo, whose family owns the farm, and his cousin, Sean Kratz, both 20, have been charged.

Nationally known for record-setting recoveries in catastrophic injury cases and wrongful death lawsuits, Ross Feller Casey will focus its investigation on the circumstances surrounding the murders and whether or not others, in addition to those charged, are civilly responsible for the senseless deaths.

Numerous news reports have indicated that, despite his history of involuntary commitment for mental health treatment and prior charges for illegal possession of a firearm, DiNardo used a family-owned gun to commit these grisly crimes.

Robert Ross, a founding partner of Ross Feller Casey, is representing the mother and father of Sturgis, 22, of Pennsburg, Pa.

The involvement of Ross, one of the nation’s most accomplished catastrophic injury litigators, drew media attention.

“We will likely never make sense of this ghastly murder spree, but we will not rest until we understand every detail, every nuance surrounding this horrific crime,” Ross told NBC-10. “The families of these young men deserve nothing less.”

Ross told 6-ABC Action News, “We are going to look under every rock and every stone until we figure out whether there are others responsible for these senseless deaths.”

In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ross said that he was looking to determine whether anyone recklessly or negligently allowed DiNardo and Kratz access to firearms or whether any guns were unlawfully sold to either confessed killer.

“There’s a bigger issue involved here,” said Ross. “If these two accused men aren’t given access to these weapons, these crimes don’t happen.” Read the story below:
