The main counter-argument would be that at least one shot of
"Laura" (the victim, anyway) clearly showed blond hair
with dark roots. If they switched identities, it seems
more likely that they were both natural brunettes.
Either could have dyed to blond, and if they switched when Laura
was blond then she would have had to dye back to brunette
to become Madeleine. That's unless Madeleine was also blond then,
which might have been long ago.
But if Madeleine was a natural brunette then, and they did switch,
and it wasn't a LONG time ago (to let her hair completely grow out),
"Madeleine" (real Laura) would now have 2 distinctive dyes
on her hair -- blond under brunette. Maybe Albert should check
the living as well as the dead.
Or maybe they didn't switch identities after all. Still,
there's something damned suspicious about "sweet Madeleine"'s
arrival on the scene.
