|~ Monroe warning Jack Kelso.|
Leland Monroe is the secondary antagonist of videogame L.A. Noire. He is the president of Elysian Fields Developments, a housing company. In the advertising billboards and papers, he always have a smile on his face.
He isn't confronted until Cole Phelps and his partner, Herschel Biggs, arrive in his office questioning him about the fires. While being confronted, Monroe has kept his cool. Later, he calls Jack Kelso about meeting with him. However, he has ordered his men to kill not only Jack, but also his army buddies. This attempt failed. Jack enters Monroe's office and shot him in the leg. While he begs to be nursed to health, he discovers his dirty dealings, including the people who are on his payroll such as Roy Earle, Cole's former corrupt Vice partner.
What happened to Monroe is unknown, but it is assured that he is placed in jail with the other Suburban Redevelopment Fund members or dies of blood loss.
