Yes Kingsley's brother did aid in the deception back in the day, I need to go back and reread those classic tales, so much better then the grist Marvel grinds out now.
If memory serves, per the Hobgoblin Lives mini, Kingsley wanted to retire as Hobgoblin and knew assassins were hired to kill him and set up Leeds to take the fall. Leeds wasn't juiced with the goblin serum he was just brain twisted and confused.
Macendale's constant failures as the new Hobgoblin prompted Kingsley's ego to seek him out and make Macendale pay.
