We have all missed the obvious in the initial  conversation Pete (I think his
name was Pete) had with Truman when Pete found the body.

He said, "She's dead."

Not: "It's a dead body" or "Someone was murdered" but, "She's dead."
Note:  Pete did not touch the body.
       The body was face down, and wrapped in opaque plastic.
How did Pete know the sex of the body?

Also, when Pete found the body, all he said (if memory serves.  I do not have 
the pilot on tape.) was "Oh my" as if he meant to say "oops".  To me this
implies that he at least knew that Laura had been murdered, but wanted to
cover his tracks after finding her washed up in front of his home.  He seems
like an excitable kind of guy who would be effected more by a body showing
up on his doorstep this way.

Also note that Peter (I hope that is his name) has a T and R, though not in the
way that makes Truman a suspect.  Could the Feds have missed a crime or two?

Anyway, Ol' Pete has jumped to the top of my lists of suspects.

How did the fish get in the coffee?  Did he suddenly get nervous when the 
police showed up on his doorstep and accidentally drop it in there?
