Jerry is one of the few characters we can near absolutely rule out.  
He was in France when Laura was murdered.

Ben is the one who suggests eliminating Leland, not Jerry.

To me this issue is the most important one raised in the show last night:

Was Ben serious when he suggested killing Leland?  Or was he just
making a smart crack, prompted by Lelands counter productive phone call?
Ben has ordered murders before.  

If he was serious, this would provide extreme evidence for the idea
that Ben is influenced/possessed or whatever by BOB, or protecting
him for some reason.  He wouldn't suddenly order Leland murdered
because of his phone call to the icelanders.  If he was serious,
he ordered Leland murdered because he felt he could aid authorities in
identifying BOB.  I don't know if he was serious, could go either way.

The evidence for BOB being inside either Leland or Ben keeps piling on up...
