as Leo Kurtz
Father to Ginger and brother to sympathetic Dr. Stan Kurtz, Leo purchased Delaney Brands in early 1972. Unbeknownest to anyone, he was affiliated with a powerful crime syndicate that wanted control of Somerset.
Leo was responsible for much mayhem, including a plant accident that paralyzed production manager Rex Cooper and a complicated blackmail scheme against Delaney Brands' new president Sam Lucas.
In 1973, Virgil Paris, Leo's shifty plant manager at Delaney Brands, raped Ginger Cooper, who was several months pregnant. When Virgil turned up murdered, the police arrested Ginger for the crime, but Leo stepped forward to admit his involvement with the mob, which had ordered a hit on Virgil in retaliation for his daughter's attack. In return for his testimony, Leo was admitted into the witness protection program and left town.
