Screenwriter, Victims Rights Advocate. A journalist and screenwriter, Leach spent nearly 20 years in Hollywood, first as a production assistant at MGM and later as a TV story editor and screenwriter. At MGM, he was involved with films including "Pat and Mike," "Adam's Rib" and "Rhapsody" before moving to CBS, where he helped develop story ideas into scripts for TV. His TV writing credits include "The Adventures of Jim Bowie", "Perry Mason", "The Case of the Dangerous Robin", "Ripcord", "Everglades" and "The Littlest Hobo". In 1959 and 1960 he also wrote for the series "Men into Space". In 1983, his stepdaughter Marsalee Nicholas, was murdered by an ex-boyfriend. That prompted Leach to co-found the non-profit organization, Justice for Homicide Victims.  (bio by: Louis Mata)
