==Character history==
 +
Leonora Johnson was born on August 29, 1952 to [[Eileen Johnson|Eileen]] and [[Harold Johnson]] in the [[United States of America|American]] Midwest. Her father was a chicken farmer and her mother a slopper at a dairy farm. She suffered from lung problems for many years due to her heavy smoking and gained the interest of many older boys and 'certain faculty members' at her high school due to her physical development occuring early. Her mental development, however, slightly longer and she was described as being a 'quiet, unremarkable' student. In [[1967]], aged 15, she moved to [[Los Santos in GTA V|Los Santos]] to pursue her dream of becoming a [[Vinewood in GTA V|Vinewood]] actress or a model. This may have been at the encouragement of or to get away from her uncle, who later sold naked pictures of her to the [[Los Santos Meteor]] following her brutal murder.
  
==Background==
+
She began working as a waitress but quickly came to the attention of people within film industry due to her 'naivete and stunning good looks', becoming a regular on the Vinewood party circuit. This allowed her to become a model with regular print advertisements and television commercials with some minor movie parts by the early 1970s. A rumour suggests that she had a brief relationship with film star [[Mitch Dexter]] in [[1969]] and in December [[1974]] tells the [[Daily Globe]] that a 'high-profile Vinewood celebrity had taken advantage of her before her 17th birthday, seeming to confirm the rumour. In [[1972]] she briefly dated casino croupier [[Everett Rogan]] although she ended the relationship after he began following her to work (paranoid about her rich suitors) and began weeping during sex. A year later, in [[1973]], she took out a restraining order against Everett and landed her first critically acclaimed film role as a wise-cracking disabled prostitute in [[Rum Runner]]. The [[Los Santos Shepherd]] described her, following this part, as "a pretty face to watch without perhaps much spark in the eyes". During this time, she had been living with roommate [[Carly Ferran]], who had begun dying her hair red (to match Leonora's) and wearing Leonora's clothing.
Leonora Johnson was born on August 29th [[1952]] in the Midwest United States. Her father Harold was a chicken farmer and her mother Ellen was a slopper at a dairy farm. She suffered lung problems from her heavy smoking during childhood. In school, Leonora was an unremarkable student, but developed physically early and attracted a lot of attention from other students and the school faculty.
+
  
In [[1967]] at 15, Leonora Johnson left school and hitched a ride to [[Los Santos in GTA V|Los Santos]] to get away from her Uncle and with dreams to become a movie star or model. After working as a waitress for several months, her natural beauty and child-like naivete caught the eye of the entertainment industry, and became a common face on the [[Vinewood in GTA V|Vinewood]] party circuit and casting-couch circuit.
+
Leonora continued to work in Vinewood and was allegedly a frontrunner for a leading part in [[The Many Wives of Alfredo Smith]] with long established actress [[Betsy O'Neil]] a rival for the main female part. On January 17, [[1975]], however, had decapitated body was found having been tortured and killed by [[Peter Dreyfuss]]. Her body had seemingly been placed 'like a gruesome piece of art'. She had been decapitated with some of her facial features missing, had her hands and feet removed and put back in place of the other, had part of her left thigh severed and positioned next to the body with the word ''HAM'' written in blood, had multiple incisions in her breasts and a star had been drawn on her back in cigar burns. An autopsy later revealed 'faint signs of sexual intercourse'. An anonymous tip-off, from a woman with a deep voice according to [[whokilledleonorajohnson.com]], led to the [[LSPD in GTA V|Los Santos Police Department]] finding her body next to the [[Land Act Dam]] but only after reporters had been there for several hours destroying forensic evidence.
  
By the early 1970s, Leonora Johnson was getting regular work as a model in print ads, television commercials and minor acting roles on movies. In 1973, she got cast in [[Solomon Richards]]' film "[[Rum Runner]]" in which she played a wise-cracking disabled prostitute and stole every scene she was in. Shortly before her death, it was rumored that she was in the running for the female lead role in "The Many Wives of Alfredo Smith", however she was murdered by [[Peter Dreyfuss]] in [[1975]] by torturing her, cutting off both her hands and feet and placed them in opposite areas, decapitating her, cutting off several facial features, multiple incisions on her breasts, sliced off a portion her thigh and wrote "ham" on it and performed intercourse on her body.
+
With forensic evidence either unusable or destroyed (due to the press trampling over it) the case remained unsolved with a number of people (including [[Johnny Sutton]]) confessing to the crime although no charges ever stuck. A number of people were suspected in her murder, including the actual killer Peter Dreyfuss who wrote a confession letter to [[David Richards]], founder of the [[Richards Majestic]] film studio, although the letter was hidden by David. Dreyfuss would continue to taunt the LSPD and her family for years with letters, phone calls and 'souvenirs', which included Leonora's locket and on the anniverary of her murder, her lips.
  
Following an anonymous tip to the [[LSPD in GTA V|LSPD]], her body was found by the side of the [[Land Act Dam]] by the reporters hours before the LSPD showed up trampling over all the usable forensic evidence.
+
After her murder, her uncle sold pictures of her skinny dipping to the [[Los Santos Meteor]] on January 18, 1975, one day after her body was found. [[Jessica Barlow]], who claimed to have been Leonora's best friend at high school, would make a lot of money through Leonora's death and even starred as Leonora in the [[1984]] pornographic film [[Lay Enormous Johnson]] about Leonora's death.
  
Years after Leonora's death, Peter Dreyfuss taunted her family for years by sending letters, making anonymous phone calls, and sending Leonora's locket and her severed lips on the anniversary of the murder.
