Note: Different characters pronounce his name differently in Season 1 Episode 5. A ballistics detective refers to some "motherfucker named 'Liggit'", which Bunk corrects to "Le-got". Later on Bunk mentions the mop to McNulty as "Le-get" which McNulty corrects as Leggett. Bunk tries to put a fancier pronounciation on the dead man's name for the sam reason he wears excellent suits and smokes fine cigars.
