It seemed to me not so complicated.  Cooper had heard from Albert (or perhaps
knew from last year's victim) what the brand of twine was that was used to
tie up poor Laura.  When Andy returned with the product, Cooper then named the
brand before even seeing the roll - for effect.  This correlation then pro-
vided the evidence needed to search the offices of Dr. Lydecker, because it
implicates anyone having easy access to this particular brand of twine.  Does
anyone else have a different interpretation?
