Maid was the kidnapper. In a round house, there is no corner!

The ‘premise’ pf the question is faulty. It assumes that a round house can’t have corners (so that the ‘cleaning corner’ claim can be refuted to derive the ‘expected’ answer). However, there is no ‘rule’ that, just because a house is round in shape, it can’t have corners. What if only the outside shape of the house is round, but it has straight walls inside?  There will be corners then, right? Given that possible scenario, the only ‘conclusion’ we can make is that the data given in the question is insufficient to conclude an answer.
