That’s what research suggests. However, criminal liars act pre-emptively; e.g., they will contact the police or, after being questioned, may contact their victims or victims’ families. When questioned by the authorities, they don’t give simple “yes” or “no” responses to questions as an innocent person will. They provide too many details and lie about the small things. They will refer to their victims (if murdered or injured) in the past tense. When asked direct questions, they will try to stall by saying, “huh?” or “what do you mean?”. And, they helpfully offer other explanations, e.g., they saw another person or suggest another person hoping it will throw of the authorities. They will even suggest an innocent party committed the crime.

Fragmented lies without foundation
bleeding a dark pigment of discontent;
conscious-stricken, I’m shushed,
I am commanded to hush;
speculating whether I will
shoot down their returning rising star—
No. Never have, will not now.
Accusation demanded— refused.
The evil that split this small world
manipulates, accuses, lies; the
star allowed to return
proffers the attacked false alibis and
crosses fingers behind his back
as he stands puffed self-righteously
like the billowing sail of an
oaken vessel pirating night skies.
Creators of words, songs, and movies
are labeled liars breathing life into
fantastic tales invented and shared.
Stop. We are the truth sinners,
not those with limited self-esteem,
those who eschew the arts and truth,
those who press labels across producers of
honest and sincere bodies of works;
not the hypocritical deceivers and
who deviously and jealously
slip in between the dusty blind slats
to covertly ambush and disorient
the color schemes of those with
the Seeing Eye of Truth.
