Another deadman in Knavesville (Posted on 2007-03-08) Difficulty: 3 of 5
An inhabitant has been killed in Knavesville and the Sheriff has interrogated four suspects. It is known that one of them is the killer. As is expected of Knaves, they alternated between telling the truth and lying (Not necessarily in that order).

Each suspect was first asked if he was the killer, to which the sheriff got the same answer from all the four suspects.

He then asked them, 'Who was the killer?' The answers to which are shown below.

Abbey said: Bart is the killer.
Bart said: Dean is the killer.
Cody said: Bart is lying when he says Dean is the killer.
Dean said: If Abbey did not kill him, then Bart did.

Who was the killer?

Solution to Liars and Knights | Comment 11 of 14 |

It is almost obvious that either Cody or Dean is the killer. They are most definitely lying. The other 2 simply noted who they thought was the killer. Cody and Dean, on the other hand, just defended themselves. In this case, Cody sounds more untruthful and should be the knave.

Thank you for reading my comment.
