It's possible. In the European version, they were letters from the killer's
name, Robert. But since the series here isn't necessarily going to be
resolved in the same way, the letters may mean something else.

} Wasn't Laura killed on Thursday night?

Yes. Though, it actually happened after midnight, so one could say it was
on Friday.

} Anyone know what day of the week the first girl was killed on.

No, it was never said. The only time reference to Theresa Banks' murder
was Cooper's saying that it occurred "a year ago almost to the day".
