Overview of Randy Leach
Randy Wayne Leach is the compassionate and loving son of Alberta and Harold Leach. He loves spending time with his family and friends; he did not hesitate to help them when the opportunity presented itself. He grew up on a 10-acre farm in the small town of Linwood, Kansas where the population was 377. On their farm, Randy had rabbits, chickens, a horse, a dog, and a pig named porkchop that he enjoyed caring for. He earned A’s and B’s, played basketball, and tried out for track where he hoped to break the shot put record. Randy also had his own lawn mowing service and planned to cut lawns for the summer before going to trade school in the fall.
On April 15, 1988, Harold and Alberta Leach described Randy as "in a good mood". Harold Leach had just bought him a John Deere lawn tractor the day before; Randy used this tractor to cut the yard of a customer before returning home where he spent four and a half hours mowing his parents' lawn. When he finished, he cleaned the tractor until it looked like it was "brand new" before he showered to get ready to go out for the evening. Randy made a few stops before he reached the pre-graduation party that was hosted by Kim Erwin at the Erwin farm.
On April 16, 1988, Harold and Alberta Leach of Linwood, Kansas reported the disappearance of their son, Randy Wayne Leach, to the Leavenworth County Sheriff's Department. Subsequent investigation determined that Leach was last seen in the early morning hours of April 16, 1988, at a high school pre-graduation party given by a classmate in rural Leavenworth County, Kansas. Leach had driven to the party in his mother's gray 1985 Dodge 600 4-door sedan. During the course of the investigation, no one was located who saw Leach or his vehicle leave the party. To date, neither Leach or his vehicle have been located.
