Would he have missed anything as obvious as, say, dyed/bleached hair?

Laura is blonde, either naturally or dyed.  Laura's cousing is brunette,
again either naturally or dyed.  Killing Laura's cousin and palming the
body off as Laura would involve dying the hair, unless Laura only changed
her color after the fact to play down the similiarities.  This possibility
means, however, that her masquerade as the cousin is an ill-concieved one.

I think Laura is dead...
