We actually have the MaxRequestsPerChild set to 1000 and KeepAlive off.

Know of any way that we could find the leak considering the vastness of all
the possibilities?

Everything you describe is incredibly normal behaviour associated with a
memory leak :-) You can also set a maximum number of requests per child
to alleviate the problem.

Of course the leak could be in Apache or php itself somewhere, but
vastly more likely is that some php code is responsible for it. Probably
the best place to look first, if you want to fix it.
