PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) - A case involving a possible grave in the backyard of a Greene County home is now done, officials said Friday.

A Paragould family found a headstone and possible grave in its backyard in early April while trying to build a chicken coop.

"So I bought some material and my son and I were stacking it and he threw a piece of wood over here and it unearthed just a piece of the tombstone and he said, 'Dad, there's something there besides a rock," Gary Moore said in April.

However, Greene County Coroner Dick Pace said after examining the area, no one was found to be there and that the case is now closed.
