Since Lynch removed his rescue scene from the script of the final episode, I think we can presume he was killed. He definitely did NOT return to father Becky who then grew up to kill him as was posited on here and a couple of other websites I went to.
From what I've heard of the absent 'rescue' scene Leo sees Hawk and Andy at the window, smiles because he is about to be saved, and inadvertently releases the trap that kills him. As it is his absence is more ambiguous.
I don't think it's THAT much more ambiguous! As shown, the last we ever see of Leo, he's in desperate, dire situation with little to no hope of escape, and ... well, we never heard from again! I actually think the intent of what happened to Leo is pretty clear.
The more we talk about this original script for Ep 29, the more I am sure that I once read it somewhere. I definitely remember the cut Leo scene exactly as you describe it. Was this thing ever published somewhere? Did I read it online somewhere? It was a very long time ago. My memory is fuzzy, but I absolutely did read it.
