Could it be the Washington/Idaho border at some point not far from the Canadian
border?  (I'm not familiar with the area at all so I don't know whether that
region is a viable candidate locale.)

BTW, the notion that the border crossed by Ronette was the border with Canada
would make the scope of the crime international rather than interstate.  BUT
in any case, how does the fact that a murder occurs in one state and someone
else who is not murdered crosses a bridge from one state to another necessitate
the intervention of the FBI?  I'm not sure I understand the FBI's participation
here at all, so I'm either missing something obvious (quite likely) and/or the
speculations about a "real" motive for Cooper's being there are well warranted.
