And there is also the possibility that they really are twins.  And the fact
that Albert wasn't requested to I.D. the body; because everyone KNEW it was
Laura :).  He therefore might have had not needed to see anything as exotic as
dental records, since he wasn't comparing old-living Laura with new-dead Laura
to match them, and none of the evidence he was looking for seemed to hinge of
her previous medical history.  And anything as simple as blood type would be
taken care of by their being identical twins, separated at a very early age.
