Just a thought about the necklace(s); didn't we see Laura give James the 
Half-Heart in a flashback? If that is so, then why does it follow that the 
person with the half corresponding to the one at the scene of the crime is 
the murderer?  Wouldn't the half-heart be just as likely to prove that Laura 
and James were really in love, and that even if she said she couldn`t see her 
anymore she must still love him or she would have asked for it back? 
Seems to me that if the Sheriff finds out that Laura gave the half-heart to 
James and he no longer has it, then that casts suspicion on him.  (and how 
would James know that the Sheriff didn`t already might have been in 
the diary). 

Of course, no matter who dug up the heart, we are left with the problem of 
how he knew where it was.  Perhaps James had a change of (half-)heart and 
retrieved it and the doctor does indeed have a different half-heart.  

Perhaps she did give half-hearts to all her lovers, making sure that it was 
always the same half.
