Leila was only 30-years-old when she was killed violently in a camper in East Mesa. The exact details aren't confirmed, but it's been claimed by Pinal and Maricopa County locals that she and 70-year-old Phillip Marquis were brutalized with an ax or some other kind of object of similar destructive caliber. The person(s) responsible for such a violent crime would have to be of considerable size and/or strength. If this is truly how the duo died, the person responsible was likely in a rage. These are the only details available in the case to the public, so all that can be done is speculation and theorizing.
Disturbingly enough, Lelia Ziegler had once acted in a low budget horror flick in which she was also brutally murdered, as can be seen from the photo to the right. It's absolutely strange looking at the photo, even though it's staged violence and not real. This young woman suffered a demise similar to her one-and-only movie role -- and her killer is walking free among us.
Please do me a favor: If you live in Arizona, or if you have people from Arizona in your social network, share this post and share Leila's photos. Keep her face fresh in the minds of anyone who may have possibly known her. Who knows, we may end up exposing a suspect or clues behind who killed her and Marquis. It's a longshot, but after two years without any publicized updates, something needs to be done.
