I agree - don't ask if you know the answer. Another thing to consider - could they be too scared to admit to what they did?

Stop giving them the opportunity to lie. If you know who did it then be straight forward about it. If they do lie you need to make the punishment greater for the lie than the actual thing they did to get them into trouble. You have to make lying undesirable for them.
