Simply both come forward, say you investigated so and so, and they are townie. That way the mafia won't know which of you is which, the doctor can protect the actual investigator tonight, and the investigator can give us either our first (or second, if we lynch one today, which significantly goes up if we can scratch 4 people off the lynchin' list) mafia member, or a 5th townie. Drawbacks of this would be if the investigator investigated the doctor, or the doctor protected the investigator last night -- something we wouldn't know until both came forward, so there's a risk there.
I think this is an unnecessary risk for the town. Even though we killed a townie in Day 1, having the doctor save a townie during the night gave the town a pretty good advantage. Even though both guys come forward and say who they have investigated, the mafia will then have a 1 in 2 chance of killing the doctor tonight, which is better than what they have right now. If they pick correctly, the investigator will be dead tomorrow night.
