Reward In Bojangles' Manager Murder Now $20,000

The reward for information on the murder of a Bojangles' manager has now been increased to $20,000.

Kenneth Leefe was gunned down back on June 24, 2010 outside the Bojangles' on Highway 70 in La Grange.

Last week the Governor's Office and a local businessman announced they would each offer $5,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction for those responsible for the death of Leefe.

Now, Tands, Inc, the franchise owner of local Bojangles', says it will offer another $10,000 in reward money.

Lenoir County deputies say over the past two years they have performed many interviews and have developed suspects in the case. But they say they need the community's help in deputies bringing about an arrest.

Nearby surveillance video showed a dark colored Mazda 626 stopping at Leefe's vehicle after the manager left the restaurant. It then sped away down Willie Measley Road after the shooting.
Anyone with information on Leefe's murder should call the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office at 252-559-6140.


Previous Story

More than two years after a restaurant manager was murdered, the Governor's Office has increased the reward for an arrest.

Kenneth Leefe was the manager of the Bojangles, just outside of La Grange. The 55-year-old man's body was found in his car in the parking lot on June 24th, 2010. He was shot once in the abdomen.

Now, the Governor's Office is offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction in the unsolved murder.

Lenoir County deputies say over the past two years they have performed many interviews and have developed suspects in the case. But they say they need the community's help in deputies bringing about an arrest.

Nearby surveillance video showed a dark colored Mazda 626 stopping at Leefe's vehicle after the manager left the restaurant. It then sped away down Willie Measley Road after the shooting.

Meanwhile, a local businessman is offering to match the Governor's reward. Steve Barbour says he's a regular customer of the Bojangles where the murder occurred.

Anyone with information on Leefe's murder should call the Lenoir County Sheriff's Office at 252-559-6140.
