When Cooper said "no, it *can* wait till morning," I interpreted it to
mean that waiting overnight wouldn't risk anything like the murderer
skipping town; which could mean that the murderer (a) already has
skipped town (but they'd want to get a manhunt out), (b) isn't leaving
because he/she considers himself/herself above suspicion -- i.e., one of
the leading lights of the town rather than one of the obvious lowlife
suspects, or (c) nobody killed Laura, in which case we have all the time
in the world. (But *someone* was killed, so presumably Cooper wants to
apprehend the murderer even if the victim's identity was mistaken.)

All I know is that when Cooper tells us what he knows in the next
episode, it probably won't be as as much fun because it'll be directed
by a "mortal." :-)
