More gruesome details have emerged in the deaths of four young men in Bucks County this week. Cosmo DiNardo, 20, confessed to participating in the four murders related to disputes over drugs and guns. The men were shot or burned before being buried on DiNardo's family farm. Late Thursday, the investigation extended to Philly, as a person of interest was taken into custody on the 800 block of Magee Avenue in the Northeast. Per reports this morning, the man was being held for questioning, but no additional charges had been filed.

Here's a full breakdown on the costs.
There were several elements to the saga of bringing professional ultimate frisbee to Philadelphia. First there was one team. Then came a split, which resulted in two different teams in two different leagues. Teams changed hands, business models diverged and there was plenty of drama. This town ain’t big enough for two ultimate frisbee teams. But it once was. This is the story of the business of professional ultimate frisbee, and what the future holds for Philly.

Yes, the French Revolution was full of political dissidence and gruesome beheadings, but these days, Bastille Day celebrations are usually lighthearted affairs. Except this year, Fairmount's annual street festival re-enacting the storming of the Bastille will contain more than just song, dance, food and drink. What else will there be? Protest messages. Lots of them. Here's what Signs of Solidarity has planned for this Saturday's block party.
It's hot. Temps dip a little today, but the humidity is still going to be gross. So cool off this afternoon with everyone's favorite drink: something free! Starbucks is promoting a new drink that mixes tea, "fruit and botanical blends" and liquid sugar into what they're calling Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Infusions. You can get a freebie today between 1 and 2 p.m. Don't worry if the lines are long in the city. Just head to the suburbs, where there's one on Every. Single. Block.
