	While wandering down a hall here today I stopped to look
	at someone's railroad map of the U.S.  The important part
	wasn't railroads though -- it's the relative geography of
	Twin Peaks, Missoula, and Butte.

	Missoula is basically the 1st town Leo would come to if
	he drove from Butte toward Twin Peaks.  If Leo called
	from Butte the night Laura (?) was murdered, he could have
	picked up Madeleine and reached Twin Peaks in time for
	at least part of that night's events.

	This may be pure smoke, but it's easy to imagine some
	odd possibilities, including a Laura/Madeleine swap 
	on the night of the murder and Madeleine being involved
	with Leo's drug running.

	Another possibility I wonder about would be something
	like Leo returning because Ben Horne calls and says
	"Leo, you gotta help us cover this thing up... Things
	got out of hand up at the cabin and now Laura's dead..."
	Leo might even relish letting impression go around that
	he'd done a killing that he really hadn't.  At least that
	should be good for business.  A few clues (maybe the bloody shirt?)
	might even a deliberate plant.
