Case File: Achilles vs. Paris

Police Reports

Case Description: Complainant (Achilles) accuses Defendant (Paris) of murder. Much to everybody's surprise, Paris, who definitely wasn't much of a warrior, ended up being the dude who killed Achilles, the toughest Greek warrior of all. Paris took Achilles down by shooting him with an arrow in his heel, the great warrior's only weak spot. Achilles was so embarrassed that he started a campaign to have Paris punished once he got down to the Underworld.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Come on, Achilles. It's war. All's fair, right?
