Twin Peaks became one of the top-rated shows of 1990 and was an international critical success.
FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper is called in to investigate.
Cooper's initial examination of Laura's body reveals a tiny typed letter "R" inserted under her fingernail.
Cooper informs the community that Laura's death matches the signature of a killer who murdered another girl in southwestern Washington the previous year, and that evidence indicates the killer lives in Twin Peaks.

It follows an investigation headed by FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle Mac Lachlan) into the murder of homecoming queen Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee) in the fictional town of Twin Peaks, Washington.
Its pilot episode was broadcast on April 8, 1990 on ABC.Seven more episodes were produced, and the series was renewed for a second season that aired until June 10, 1991.Twin Peaks explores the gulf between the veneer of small-town respectability and the seedier life beneath.As the series progresses, the inner darkness of characters who initially appeared innocent is revealed, and they are seen to lead double lives.Its unsettling tone and supernatural features are consistent with horror films, but its campy, melodramatic portrayal of quirky characters engaged in dubious activities parodies American soap operas.Like much of Lynch's work, the show represents an earnest moral inquiry distinguished by offbeat humor and surrealism.
