Yes I know, I was fishing for your theories. That's what we do here right? Come up with all sorts of theories and share them with eachother? 😉
Yup, I got that but in this particular case, there's not enough to even begin formulating any kind of hypothesis. A significant - and I do believe it is significant - lack of information.

Also the Sheriff already knows, when he talked to Ben.
Which puts the timelines in a strange place because the scene with Ben is the first we can say Sheriff Truman is aware of the hit and run. I was assuming the Sheriff didn't come back directly from 10/2 journey to Jack Rabbits place and the hit and run was after that. No I can't say for sure.
I think I found out what has been bothering me about this episode and it is the timeline idea is completely whacked up with the events in this.
I still think Lynch took the idea of murder master and knew the audience loved solving it before the detective and just went nuts with making people try to figure everything out, even things that can't be explained or will never be explained. And I do love it.
