Why the hell not?  Sounds like a most interesting way for someone to figure the
whole charade out, to me.  People, especially people engaging in surreptitious
charades, DO make mistakes, you know, and this very sort of mistake could
certainly be the factor that leads to the uncovering of the whole charade,
and may even be part of the direct cause for the murder.  E.g., two unrelated
and uninvolved (with each other, at least not directly) people see "Laura" at
the same approximate time in different places, but do not relate this to each
other.  Cooper learns this from the disparate sources, and deduces a
conclusion.
