Urban Challenge Dallas 2002 Clues

Our teams were randomly designated to start at the following Checkpoints:
Becky and Jim:Checkpoint 1
Richard and Gayla:Checkpoint 3
Marcy and John:Checkpoint 3
Kip and Rob:Checkpoint 4

Each team then had to progress upwards through the Checkpoints, wrapping around at the end, and then finally hitting the "LAST ONE FOR EVERYONE" clue at the end.
For example, Kip and Rob had to find the Checkpoints in this order:
4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 1, 2, 3, LAST ONE FOR EVERYONE

I Never Liked That Vase, Anyway! Checkpoint 1 is printed below next to the name of the person who broke the vase. To find Checkpoint 1, figure out who broke the vase. To help you, we have given you a statement from each of the suspects.

None of the suspects' statements are true!
Mike: Sally broke the vase.
Tom: Mike will tell you who broke the vase.
April: Tom, Chris, & I could not have broken the vase.
Chris: I didn't break the vase.
Sally: Mike broke the vase, so Tom & April couldn't have.

Mike = Hercules the Archer near the Trammell Crow Center.
Tom = Sacrifice III near Symphony Center.
April = Les Ondines near Symphony Center.
Chris = The Right Light in the Trammell Crow Center.
Sally = The Majestic Theater.

Where's Tinkerbell? Get your photo with a "frolicking pixie" near turtle creek who has a lobster on his back and a fish under his little belt rope. This pixie is Checkpoint 8.
