Hemlock Stones, the not-yet-famous consulting detective, has just been called in to solve the mysterious murder at the Socratic Liar's Club.

There are five suspects each of whom has sworn by the club oath to make two true statements and one false one whenever speaking to someone on the club's premises.

From their recorded statements below, Hemlock Stones was able to determine 'who dunit.' Can you?

Professor: I did not kill Henley. I never owned a knife. Lance did it.

Ethel: I didn't kill him. I don't own a knife. The others are drunk.

Phoebe: I'm innocent. Lance is the killer. I don't even know Dutch.

Lance: I'm innocent. Dutch is guilty. The Professor lied when he said I did it.

Dutch: I didn't kill him. Ethel is the murderer. Phoebe and I are old friends.
