Who knows?

In México we use ¿Quien sabe? to express that we don't have the answer and we don't know who has it or if it has an answer.

Quien Sabe?

If it's spelled with a tilde, it's a question. - ¿Quién sabe? - Who knows?

Without the tilde, it's a statement- -quien sabe - who knows.

For instance, - Necesito encontrar a quien sabe la respuesta- I need to find someone who knows the answer.
