  • Details of Disappearance
    Galion Leak was reported missing on September 14, 2002. Leak's last known address was 278 Pevia Drive in Red Springs.

    Reginald Murphy was sentenced to 10 to 13 years in prison for the murder of Galion Leak. Murphy pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Leak. The motive was to keep Leak from testifying against Murphy's brothers, who have been charged with murder in a separate case. Investigators from the Robeson County Sheriff's Office believe Leak was shot and killed in an area called the Campbell Compound in September 2002. A missing-persons report was filed on Sept. 14, 2002, by Leak's family members.

    During the investigation information surfaced that Leak was shot in the head and buried off of Johnson Road near the compound, authorities said. His body was never found.
