Case File: Oedipus vs. Tiresias

Police Reports

When the seer of Thebes tried (in his cryptic way) to tell Oedipus that Oedipus himself had unknowingly murdered his father, Oedipus accused Tiresias of lying and being involved with the murder.

Case Status: Case dismissed. Oedipus eventually discovered the truth of what he'd done, gouged his own eyes out, and went into exile.
