No, maybe the fact WASN'T hidden, but I wouldn't put it past Doc Hayward to
have told them that the other infant had died. Of course, this leads to some
odd and far-fetched thoughts about a conspiracy in Twin Peaks--is Doc H. part
of the cult of the Great Evil in the Woods (tm), and was Maddie raised as a
"cousin" to Laura in preparation for some plot to gain power over the mortal
realm? I find it no less plausible than time travel. This, of course, knocks
out the theory of "Maddie" actually being Laura...

(Take this with as many grains of salt as you think will help.)
