Whigham -- Federal agents are looking for a body buried on a South Georgia farm. Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearm agents, along with Grady County sheriff's deputies, are digging on the Whigham farm owned by Don Harrell.

Agents declined to provide details about today's search, but investigators previously said Martin Harrell is suspected of killing Bobby Eugene Powell in August 2000. Harrell had hired Powell to intimidate a farmer with whom he had a dispute.

Don Harrell was acquitted in March of witness intimidation in his son, Martin's, arson trial.

Martin Harrell and Dexter Harrison were convicted in March of setting fire to the Ramada Limited motel in Donalsonville.
