Yeah, and in Wiseguy, this character's name was "Volchek".  Note that
the principal of Twin Peaks High was named "Wolchek".

Actually, in the Wiseguy arc, it was the sheriff ("Stem"), not a
deputy sheriff, who turned out to be killer.  Hence, this would be
support for "Truman did it" rather than "Andy did it".

By the way, does anyone know the history behind this Twin
Peaks-influenced Wiseguy arc?  Are some of the Wiseguy
producers/writers buddies with Lynch/Frost et al?  I assume that since
the Wiseguy story was broadcast first that the creators must had
advanced access to the Twin Peaks storyline.

Curious,
