In the early 90s I was a Twin Peaks freak. . . and secretly in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), the quirky FBI agent who comes to town to investigate the murder of Laura Palmer. Granted, most detectives don’t have the benefit of psychic dreams featuring a backwards-talking midget to help solve cases. But there is a lot that investigators can learn from the (sadly) fictional Agent Cooper’s unconventional methods.
I’ve written before about how important it is to verify addresses early in the relationship. But what if your lover’s dirty little secret isn’t another person? What if it’s a huge doll collection, or mountains of garbage? While watching a ‘Hoarders’ marathon (it was a slow day!) I was reminded yet again that it’s not just about seeing where someone lives, but how they live.
