Wont start, leaking diesel fuel

Alright ill try to make this as clear as possible. 2002 f250 7.3l

When winter came around I had to start plugging the truck up, no issues all the way from November to last week. However normally I would go out and it would start up in the freezing cold but last week I went out and it took me a few times to start it...odd. The following day It wouldn't start and had to have it jumped to get it going as I drained the batteries trying to crank it. THEN the next day It died, tried to jump it and crank for 20min and it started dripping diesel fuel behind the oil pan rapidly. Let it sit for 10 min and tried again, after 5 min of trying to start it, it just wouldn't turn over and when I turned the key it just went, 'click'. All electricity still works but it just simply would not turn over anymore.

Had it flat beded out to my mechanic and they still cant get it to start, They told me it is either a busted o ring which I pray it is so I don't have to spend out the you know what, or it could be a busted fuel pump, or the header. I also had a friend from home in VA say it could also be my injectors? I just find it out that my truck went from perfectly fine, to not starting. Please help me as I need to get this figured out!

I had the shop order new GP but that day I went to start it and take it there it crashed. The truck stopped cranking while the batteries were hooked up to a AAA truck so Im positive its not them. Plus they tried jumping it and again it wont start it just clicks when they turn the key.

my mechanic has just been trying to get it started to move it into the garage. Maybe the PCM but again everything still works except cranking. Maybe it could be my Crank Shaft position sensor? My mechanic said he is going to start at the fuel pump and work up to find the leak.

I would check the starter for the just a click especially since you cranked it for so long and as for the fuel leak look at the o-ring on the fuel filter cap ive seen them blow and fuel goes everywhere

What harness00 said. That's how my starter went just a click. With a bad starter you can also get a slow crank which will crank, but not it won't build enough icp pressure to start. Just what happened to me.
