Glasgow Family Speaks Out About Remains Findings

LITTLE ROCK, AR — It’s been seven years since John Glasgow went missing. Thursday, investigators confirmed his remains have been found. 

Hikers discovered them in a rugged, remote area of Petit Jean State Park in Conway County Wednesday afternoon. The full remains have not been recovered.

Roger Glasgow says the news of this discovery is bittersweet. But while the family is able to say one final goodbye — they still have a lot of questions about how Glasgow died.

“We feel relief and a terrible sense of sadness,”said Victim’s Brother Roger Glasgow.

Roger Glasgow sharing his feelings with his brother’s wife and his sons by his side. They learned Thursday that skeletal remains found Wednesday are those of John Glasgow. Glasgow has been missing since 2008.

“Since that time he disappeared over seven years ago we have received zero credible information that as to what may have happened to him or where he might be,” said Roger.

Roger says park officials found his brother’s skull near the bottom of a cliff at Petit Jean Mountain State Park. Officials used dental records and DNA to identify the remains. Investigators told the family no trauma was found on the skull which they believe rules out a fall or self-inflicted gunshot. 

“We want this thoroughly investigated, if there is a perpetrator that has caused his death we want them found and brought to justice,” said Roger. 

With no cause of death determined Roger suspects his brother was murdered.

“We have always suspected foul play was involved and the discovery of these remains simply strengthens that belief in our minds,” said Roger.

The remains were found above ground. Which investigators say means Glasgow was not buried. Roger says with new evidence he and his family are hopeful the death of the Bill Clark and Dillard’s Inc. CFO will be solved. 

“These past seven years we’ve lived with this tragedy. Time has worn off some of the raw edges. But this event has reopened the wounds,” said Roger.

Roger says park officials will return to the area where the remains were found. Along with dogs investigators will use metal detectors to search for zippers, rings or any other metallic items Glasgow may have been wearing.
