One Month After Murder At Local Restaurant, And Still No Answers

One month later, the murder of a Lenoir County Bojangles manager still remains unsolved.

Saturday marks one month since Kenneth Leefe, age 55, was murdered in LaGrange.

Since a month has gone by the family still has no clue who the killer is. Leefe left behind his wife, Penny and his two children Christopher and Brandi.

The family says it has been an emotional roller coaster since Kenneth was killed.

But even the grieving process is at a standstill, due to a homicide investigation Leefe says her husband's life insurance policy is frozen which means she can't bury him.

His daughter Brandi hopes the authorities will catch who killed her dad for some justice and a little closure.

Lawmen say they still have no motive. The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is also working on this murder investigation.

    "Scoot" if you must know law enforcement does do there job. Smoking weed is against the law..and SELLING WEED IS TOO....getting stopped for seat belt,fictious tags, window tint is against the law. Law Enforcement does a outstanding job. If you ride dirty YOU WILL GET Caught

    From my understanding Mr. Leefe was cremated on June 30th. I don't know of anyone who had been cremated so will someone help me to understand what kind of funeral follows that.

    Asa, we tried to open a memorial fund for my dad at BB&T. After 30 mins of waiting around for them to figure out how to do it, we were told we would have to get a lawyer to do it for us. If we had the money to hire a lawyer, don't you think we would have had the money to bury my father already. It has been one thing after another since my dad was killed. How much more are we supposed to go through. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers. Keep them coming.

    "Scoot" I don't know where you live but you need to be mayor, police chief, and public prosecutor, you are just too smart. Are you Harvard educated?

    Why don't we all offer to help with the burial arrangements? Anyone that cares at all, whether you know the family or not, can spare some change. WITN, PLEASE find out if there's a fund to donate to. No family should have to endure this.

    I live within seeing distance of this business. My heart goes out to the family, friends of this man. I think Bojangles should help this family with his funeral, he was an employee. This was probably a robbery that went wrong. Again, God bless this family.

    see, thats what im saying, you got cops tracking down joint smokers and crap, yet crimes like this one go unresolved, put the men in uniform to protect the law abiding citizens instead of wasting tax payers money for other BS like busting someone for a seatbelt or smoking pot, this crap has gotten so bad that i never leave home without my 9mm pistol at my side, you simply cannot depend on the police to protect you, they may,"if ur lucky" find the person that killed you, but that doesnt help the person who got killed by a scumbag, my oh my, buy urself a gun and protect urself for gods sake.

    Please - can someone at Bojangles Corporate help this family to give their husband, father and YOUR manager a proper burial? Small towns are supposed to pull together. I am sure the family would repay you after the life insurance pays them. The funeral allows you to say your final goodbyes and bring some closure, even if the murderer has not been brought to justice yet. God Bless them in their time of need.

    We need to bring back the gas/electric chair. Quit waiting 15 years on death row. Ok some of you say what about the innocent, that's where the cops and DA need to do their job right to start with. As Jesus says if you do it right to start with, you dont have to do it over. Prayers to the family.
