Jefferson City Police say they are ending the search for the body of Christopher Cray at the Allied Waste Landfill, just under a month after it began.

In a press release, the department says it will be sending in evidence found at the landfill for testing, but would not disclose what that evidence is because it's an ongoing investigation. The department also says it will follow up on other leads as the investigation continues.

Cray was last seen in Jefferson City on May 20th, and police believe he was murdered. Two men have been arrested in the case, one charged with tampering with a witness, the other with tampering with physical evidence and abandoning a corpse.
