No, I don't think so.  You'll remember that Agent Cooper spoke the name
of the person to the rock just before he threw it.  This would fit in
with his psycho-babble about motor coordination and the "deepest layers
of intuition" i.e., the thrown rock represents his subconscious
feelings about "nervous about meeting J tonight" (NOT necessarily the
murderer).  For the record, the bottle broke on..Leo Johnson's name.  There
were no more after that (so there is no "whole list to be shifted down one")
and Leo was directly after the (erased) Jack With One Eye (which my deepest
level of intuition warns is not necessarily The One Eyed Jack.

How he would know anything about Leo Johnson when he hasn't even met, talked
or interviewed the guy I don't know.
