The evidence against Dmitri Karamazov is overwhelming.  The prosecutors have everything they need to condemn him: motive (lust and money); evidence (blood and the missing 3000 rubles), and witnesses (the most damning is the servant Grigory, who saw Dmitri fleeing the scene). The facts present a strong case against Dmitri.  But he claims he’s not guilty of murdering his father!  I don’t know what to believe.  It’s possible that Dmitri is telling the truth.  But the facts seem to point in a very different direction. Two possibilities:  either Dmitri is lying, or facts don’t necessarily add up to the Truth – eh?
