Case File: Thetis vs. Paris and Apollo

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Thetis) accuses Defendant (Paris) of murder. Thetis was grief stricken and furious when she heard that Paris killed Achilles by shooting him in the heel.

Case Status: Case pending. Everybody has a different opinion on the details of this incident. Some say that Apollo was the one who shot Achilles, while others say it was Apollo in disguise as Paris. Still others say that Paris shot Achilles when Achilles was about to marry the Trojan princess, Polyxena. All these conflicting stories made it impossible to prosecute.
