Margaret Lanterman, The Log Lady
By the time of Laura Palmer’s murder, the Log Lady is a well-known town figure in Twin Peaks. She always carries with her a small log, with which she seems to have a psychic connection.
Many in town regard her as crazy but Margaret Lanterman doesn’t care. She likes to tell people what her log sees.
