Case File: Artemis vs. Apollo

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Artemis) accuses Defendant (Apollo) of murder. Apollo became jealous that Orion was hanging out too much with Artemis, Apollo's twin sister. So Apollo tricked Artemis into shooting Orion in the head with an arrow by telling the giant to wade out shoulder deep into the ocean and daring Artemis to shoot the tiny speck.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Apollo and Artemis are always bickering about something. We decided not to get involved.

Addendum: Wait a minute. Didn't he die by scorpion bite? Which story are we supposed to believe here?
