The Origins of Twin Peaks

In this article for the Washington Post, David Bushman and Mark Givens track the origins of the cult tv classic Twin Peaks to an unsolved 1908 murder.  Hazel Drew's brutal death turned into the centerpiece of the weird, and weirdly attractive, series. Now it returns to prime time.
