The Boone County Sheriff's Office says no further searching is planned for the remains of a man who was murdered and dismembered.

Three men, Jefferey All, 21, Anthony Baumgartner, 23, and Stephen Harkness, 22, were arrested Tuesday for Murder, Kidnapping, Abuse of a corpse, and Tampering with physical evidence in the death of a man who has yet to be identified.

Crews searched the Rumpke landfill in Butler, Ky. as well as a barn on Allen's property in Verona for the man's remains on Tuesday. Sheriff's spokesman Tom Scheben tells FOX19 no further searching is planned.

Investigators believe the victim is a suspected heroin dealer who was targeted by the suspects because they wanted to 'rid the world of evil.'
