That makes a lot of sense, but BoLM says:
Of all the characters, she is the only one who does not hold any darkness
in her heart.
I assumed Laura was drawn in because of her connection to Mary. Like how Douglas was drawn in because of Heather.
Book of Lost Memories wrote:SECTION TWO: Guiltless characters who visit Silent Hill by chance
In the town of Silent Hill, those who shoulder the weight of their crimes
and their own pasts gather. However, like Douglas, characters who happen to
become involved for some reason or other have also come to appear. These
characters, who hold no darkness in their hearts, come to fulfill the role
of supporting the protagonist...
Having gotten to know Mary in the hospital, Laura visits the place which
held memories for Mary in the hopes of seeing her again.
