Laura Palmer's Diary - The personal thoughts of Laura Palmer (Sheryl Lee), a young homecoming queen from the Northwest town of Twin Peaks who was killed by a stringy-haired demon named Bob (played by Frank Silva) on the bizarre prime time drama TWIN PEAKS/ABC/1990-91.

Laura Palmer

In the book, "The Secret Diary of Laura Palmer" written by Jennifer Lynch (Pocket Books, 1990), we are given insights to who or what BOB was and why Laura was killed.

We discovered that BOB had been coming to Laura since her 12th birthday (July 22, 1984); that she considered him as "Satan"; that she feared she would become "bad" like BOB and lose her specialness of being "Laura, good and true and pure"; and that the letters in Bob's name were a warning in itself "Beware Of Bob."

In Laura's 12/14/86 diary entry, she wrote "BOB, I forbid you to come to me again...I hate you." Without permission on 11/13/87, BOB wrote "your life is worthless...You owe me everything...See you in the dark...Laura Palmer."

The last two entries in her diary were undated but they told of the fear and her impending doom. She wrote "BOB was getting close" and "I know who he is. I know exactly what BOB is, and I have to tell everyone...I'm so afraid of death" Laura's was found dead soon after writing this in her diary. (On the TV series, her last diary entry read: "Feb. 23, 1990. Asparagus for dinner again, I hate asparagus").
