LRPD to search field near England for Glasgow

In a windy field near England today, the Little Rock Police Department was preparing to search for the body of Little Rock businessman John Glasgow, missing since January 2008. Glasgow's car was later found on Petit Jean Mountain, and though the mountain was extensively searched, his body was never found. His family filed to have him declared dead last year. A Faulkner County Jail inmate came forward recently to say that he knew where Glasgow's body was buried: apparently in the soybean field behind a farm shed near Clear Lake, just off Highway 161, where a crew was forming a grid covering about an acre with stakes and small flags today.

This morning, LRPD spokesman Lt. Terry Hastings said that a team from the University of Arkansas would use ground-penetrating radar to search the area tomorrow. He said a team from the Army had already been over the field with their equipment, but added their radar was built to detect mines so possibly didn't go deep enough. At the scene, an officer in a knit cap embroidered with LRPD who didn't identify himself said that weather permitting, the search would go on tomorrow. Nearby neighbors said the field has been under 24 hour surveillance by officers for about a week now. Two unmarked police cars sat near a red farm shed adjacent to the field today.

There are several homes with a clear line of sight on the field where police are preparing to search. Joyce Bradshaw, who lives in a house about 150 yards up the road from the field, said that she could see how it might be possible to bury a body there unnoticed. "That wouldn't surprise me, because there's always equipment down at the farm headquarters," referring to the red shed at the end of the field.

Richard Williams, who lives in a trailer at the intersection of 161 and Old Dirt Road about 75 yards from the field, said that he has lived in his home for around 15 years. He said that unless he and his wife weren't home at the time, it would be hard to bury a body in the field without someone knowing it, especially if heavy equipment was used.

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
