What Happened to Leslie Cargile?

The news this past week-end provided shocking information on a doctor and her husband who were found dead in Galveston, Texas.When I first heard Leslie Cargile was missing, the astounding news hit home.  Her practice was in Black Mountain, North Carolina, and my home town. Years ago she was my doctor. For me, Leslie was a kind lady who doctored with grace and intelligence. Her disappearance has effected many in this small town, and surrounding area.
The news is sketchy right now. Leslie was reported missing when she didn’t come to work on Monday. She and her husband William were later found dead in a motel room in Texas. But why were they so far from home when found? Co-workers believed Leslie and her husband were only taking a short week-end trip to celebrate a wedding anniversary.


How did Leslie and William die? What preceeded their death that remains questionable? Where their two sons aware of potential problems leading to their parent’s disappearance, and later their death? She was 53; he was 58. Were medicine samples found strewned about the motel room an indication of a cause of death? No gun shot wounds, or stabbing scars were found. Therefore, foul play isn’t indicated. What will the toxicology report later indicate? Did they die of a drug overdose, or commit suicide? What happened?


This tragedy may be a story for 48 hours to showcase in the future. It certainly has the makings of an interesting chronicle.


My heart goes out to all involved.
