| "Farmers' Law" |
Set in OTL
|Type of Appearance:||Direct|
Demetrios was the blacksmith of the village of Abrostola. He was among the people who'd developed a conflict with the prosperous farmer Theodore, and was a possible suspect in Theodore's murder. Demetrios had built a mill the year before, but because it took too much water out of the Lalandos to allow Theodore to water his wheat, the Farmers' Law required that the mill stand idle.
However, after a chance comment from his daughter, Maria, Father George realized Theodore's killer must have been left-handed, as Theodore had been hit on the right side of his head. Moreover, as the killer and the victim had been face-to-face in the attack, George realized that the killer would have to someone who routinely carried a blunt instrument, or Theodore would have been on his guard.
Demetrios was left-handed and commonly carried his hammer. When confronted, Demetrios tried to escape, but was taken into the custody by the village.
