Embezzlement (Posted on 2004-10-11) Difficulty: 4 of 5
Hyperlogitech Corp. just discovered that they have two employees embezzling funds. Investigators have narrowed the field down to six suspects.

The suspects are Alice, Bert, Carl, Dave, Emily, and Fiona. In the group there are two Knights, two Knaves and two Liars. (For this puzzle, Knaves alternate truths and lies.)

Each suspect made comments as follows:

Alice: No women are crooks. Emily and Fiona are Liars.

Bert: Alice is a crook, but I am not. One of the women is a Liar.

Carl: Fiona is a crook, but I am not. Dave is a Knight. Fiona is a Knave.

Dave: Emily is a crook, but I am not. Bert is a Liar.

Emily: Alice isn't a Knight. Carl is not a crook.

Fiona: Emily is a Liar. Dave is not a crook.

Who are the embezzlers?
