I've got faith in Albert.  He's very very thorough.  Remember, he had very
little time with the body.  ("Who knows what I could have come up with...")
He's also still assimilating all the information.  If it really is *not*
Laura that's dead, I bet he'll notice something odd.  The lack of time
means that Albert may not have gotten a chance to do all of the checking
he wanted.  Heck, he *didn't* get to do all the checking he wanted.  Like
taking the power drill to her forehead.

Albert's still working on the case...he keeps giving regular updates, so 
he hasn't finished yet.  If it really *was* Madeleine that got killed, I'd
bet that Albert will be the first to make that guess.  Second choice would
be James Hurley.  I still say that "Madeleine" didn't really look all
that sad at the's a long shot, but it's still very possible
that Maddy is really Laura.
