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.
