Glasgow brother: "No evidence" to support inmate buried body story

The brother of a Little Rock businessman who disappeared four years ago, says he doesn't believe a felon's story about what happened to John Glasgow.
LITTLE ROCK, AR - The brother of a Little Rock businessman who disappeared four years ago, says he doesn't believe a felon's story about what really happened to John Glasgow.

KARK-TV reports convicted felon Jon Brawner claims he helped bury Glasgow's body the night he disappeared. But his brother Roger Glasgow said Thursday there's no evidence to back up his claim.

Glasgow says the last four years without his brother John is hard to describe.

"The not knowing and not being able to get any kind of resolution as to what happened, it just lingers on and on,” Glasgow says. “You think about it everyday."

And even more thoughts today. After Faulkner County inmate Jon Brawner told detectives John Glasgow is buried in a bean field in Lonoke County near England.

"There's no evidence, other than him,” Glasgow says. “And before I am willing to believe this at all, I'd have to see some evidence."

Evidence is scarce in this case. John Glasgow served as the CFO for Little Rock contractor CDI when he vanished January 28, 2008. Petit Jean Mountain State Park in Conway County yielded his abandoned SUV, but nothing else.

America's Most Wanted featured Glasgow’s story in November 2009 but no credible leads turned up.

"We've had a lot of wild stories that we've received that didn't pan out to be anything,” Glasgow says. “So I don't know if this will pan out to be something or not."

Glasgow says Little Rock police first told him about Brawner a few months ago. And that a search of land where his brother is supposedly buried turned up nothing.

"I can't either believe it or not believe it,” Glasgow says. “I'm a lawyer by training and I'd like to see the evidence. And if some evidence is produced, that's a whole new can of worms."

Glasgow continues to hope for closure and answers to what happened to his younger brother.

A Pulaski County circuit judge declared John Glasgow dead in June 2011.

Glasgow added that Little Rock police are waiting to use sonar technology from the University of Arkansas Archeology Department that will show if the land out in the field has been disturbed.

LRPD would not say Thursday when that search might happen.
