I have camped on lakes that are man-made and on which the
water levels are controlled by, yes, paper mills.  I have
seen the water level fall several inches a day, when they are
letting water out.  It is very possible that the plastic 
wrapped body was found on the shore of just such a lake,
and, as you recall, when the scene returned to the body,
there was a large flat of land behind it.  Just like the 
tide went out, or a flat that was uncovered when the water
level was lowered several inches by a paper mill - seems
like there is a mill in Twins Peaks, isn't there????

The foghorn?  Well, ever see a cowboy movie where there
are contrails on the sky?  Sometimes it is tough to edit
out ALL the intrusive sounds.  Or, they left the sound in
because it fit in so nicely and effectively...
