You're making a pretty big assumption, given the fact that this is
Twin Peaks and not Dragnet.

Leo, Jacques, Laura, and Ronette were all together at Jacques'
cabin. Laura and Ronette were tortured at the abandoned railway
car. They found a small spot of blood on the carpet at Jacques'
cabin, but we don't know whose it was. We do know that Jacques
has been doing some bleeding lately - it might be his.

It's quite possible that Laura and Ronette left the cabin under
their own power and were intercepted by a third party who took
them to the box cars. Remember, *two* kinds of twine were used
in tying Laura up. Jacques had that very handy spool of (presumably)
Finley's lying right there on the floor of his cabin. Why get some
other brand? This is also (reasonably) consistent with the Log's
testimony.

So Leo, while he may be guilty of light bondage, bird abuse, feeding
poker chips to a minor, and so forth, may have had nothing to do
with Laura's death. It doesn't really seem in character for him;
there's no obvious profit to be made, and that's seems to be mainly
what motivates him.
