The search for his body had followed a jail inmate's allegation that he helped bury John Glasgow in a farm field outside England four years ago.
Crews using a backhoe owned by the City of Little Rock searched different sections of the field for five hours before calling it quits around two o'clock this afternoon. While they found no evidence of a grave, they did find some prehistoric relics.
The dig site is just on the other side of the Pulaski county line in rural Lonoke County, near Old Dirt Road off Highway 161.
The areas for digging were selected last week after state-of-the-art archeology equipment was used to comb the field for a possible grave. A ground penetrating radar machine that sends beams of energy into the soil and can go down about 10 feet, looks for areas where the earth has been disturbed in some way, beyond normal farm work.
After the data was analyzed, the archeologists recommended to police that four specific areas be examined closer.
Earlier this month, Jon Brawner, an inmate in the Faulkner County Jail, told KARK 4's Lauren Trager that while he did not kill Glasgow, he was asked to help to bury him by those who did commit murder. Brawner is facing up to 20 years on a recent stalking conviction involving his ex-wife.
In January 2008, John Glasgow reportedly drove away from his home one morning and hasn't been seen or heard from since. His car was later found on Petit Jean Mountain, reportedly wiped clean of any evidence.
