  Hmmm... I missed the entire last season (sigh), but here's an idea: the 
person who shot Coop has had contact with Ben's vicuna - his/her coat 
brushed by it, or s/he petted it, or somesuch.  There were only a few hairs 
found at Coop's door - it's just (if not more) likely that fur that was 
accidently picked up would drop off someone as it is that fur would drop off 
a vicuna coat.
 
   Which leaves two questions: (1) Are then any shots of someone (other than 
Leland) touching the vicuna, prior to Coop's being shot, and (2) did Ben 
instruct someone to shoot Coop?!  (Not that we can definitively answer the 
latter question).
