The gold was missing. The thief was either the butler, the maid, or the cook. During the investigation, each made the following statement;
Butler; The maid stole the gold
Maid; That is true!
Cook; I did not steal the gold
As it happened, at least one of them lied and at least one of them told the truth. Who stole the gold?
