It's all because of that letter I got a week ago! "On the night of the next full moon," "shadows will once again begin to disappear from Tsukikage Island.
" "Investigate.
Keiji Aso.
" Mouri Detective Agency.
Two days until the next full moon.
I've transferred half a million to your bank account.
You had best come.
Hold on! Who the heck are you?! Keiji Aso from Tsukikage Island.
Hey, wait! Hello?! He didn't even bother for me to accept him as a client or not! What's to complain about? At least we get to relax on a small island near Izu! Right, Conan-kun? Tsukikage Island Keiji Aso I don't see anyone by that name in here Look harder, could you?! I have a letter from him right here, after all But he's not in the list of residents, and I just moved to this island, so I don't know that much about— Is something the matter? Chief, it seems that these people have been hired by a resident here Hired? That's right.
By someone named Keiji Aso What? Did you say Keiji Aso?! That's not possible! He's been dead for over 10 years! He was a famous pianist who was born and raised on this island.
It was the night of a full moon, 12 years ago It was his first time home in a long time, so he held a concert in the town's community center.
But afterwards, he suddenly shut his family and himself inside their home and lit the place on fire! He allegedly stabbed his wife and daughter to death and then continued to play the piano as the fire raged on, almost as if he was possessed by something.
Beethoven's piano sonata "Moonlight".
A letter from a dead man What a nasty prank.
That's not necessarily the case.
Your fee was paid, plus the letter was postmarked from this island.
I bet someone on the island wants you to look into Keiji Aso's affairs! He's right! The mayor here used to be a good friend of his.
Maybe he can tell us something! Yeah They said the mayor's over at the community center, right? Now then, Kenta-kun.
Make sure to keep warm when you sleep.
Ok, I will! Bye! Bye! Excuse me! Where is the community center? You turn that corner and then keep going straight.
Wait, are you folks from Tokyo?! That's right.
We got off the ship just now.
I live in Tokyo too! But this island is so much nicer, wouldn't you agree? The air's fresh, and it's nice and quiet! Protect the island's fishing industry! Vote for Masato Shimizu! Well, maybe not too quiet.
The mayoral election is coming up, you see.
The mayoral election, huh? The candidates are Shimizu-san, who represents the fishermen, current mayor Kuroiwa-san, whose popularity is dwindling as of late, and Kawashima-san, the wealthiest man on the island.
My patients have been telling me that Kawashima-san will probably That's alright, Nurse.
We're not really that interested in the election Doctor Narumi Asai (26) That's Doctor Narumi Asai.
I have an actual license, you know! Oh, you're a doctor If you folks are headed to the community center, you can meet the three of them there! Tonight they're holding a 3rd-year memorial for Kameyama-san, our previous mayor.
Your previous mayor? A 3rd-year memorial? Don't let the mayor continue his reign of terror! Don't let the mayor continue his reign of terror! Give me a break.
Current Mayor of Tsukikage Island Tatsuji Kuroiwa (56) How dare they do this on the night of the previous mayor's memorial?! They're really getting on my nerves! Kuroiwa's Only Daughter Reiko Kuroiwa (27) Hirata! What're you doing?! Shut them up already! Secretary to the Mayor Kazuaki Hirata (31) Yes, ma'am! Don't let the mayor continue his reign of terror! Hey, everything OK? Is what OK, Shuichi? They're saying this election Reiko's Fiancé Shuichi Murasawa (27) ain't looking so good for your old man.
It would seem the citizens Wealthiest Man in Town Hideo Kawashima (56) favor me the most.
That's only because you know how to use money.
Which I learned from you, of course.
There's a man here who wants to see the mayor! Who is it, at a time like this?! A detective from Tokyo What? A detective?! Come on, how long are they going to make me wait?! Huh? Where's Conan-kun? A piano Stop that, Conan-kun! Huh? What a huge room! So the rear of the community center is on the water's edge This piano sure is dirty You'd think they could at least clean it once in a while No, don't touch that! That's the cursed piano that Aso-san played the day he died! Cursed? Give me a break Aso-san wasn't the only one! The same thing happened to the last mayor! You mean Isamu Kameyama-san, the person they're holding the memorial for today? Yes.
It happened 2 years ago.
It was the night of a full moon.
I was passing by the community center, which should have been empty, when I heard the sounds of a piano coming from inside.
When I called out to see who was there, the music stopped.
Inside, I found Kameyama-san! He had died of a heart attack.
And the music he had been playing before he died was the same piece Aso-san had performed in the fire: "Moonlight".
After that, this piano came to be known as the Cursed Piano.
Conan-kun! Seems normal enough to me.
Anyway, please wait by the front door until the memorial is over! Oh, you're still here? Narumi-san! Are you going to the memorial? Yes.
Kameyama-san was the first person I autopsied when I came here.
I thought I would burn some incense in his honor.
Oh, this is Shimizu-san.
I happened to meet him on the way.
Hello, my name's Shimizu.
Mayoral Candidate Masato Shimizu (49) It's nice to meet you! Unemployed Ken Nishimoto (55) Hey, Kawashima.
You hired a detective to dig up some dirt on me, didn't you?! Don't be stupid.
Running away?! Bathroom.
It's strange.
That piano should have remained unused for years now, but it produced a perfect sound.
Someone must be tuning it secretly.
For some purpose And what exactly was that letter trying to say? This song! Moonlight! Oh no! Conan-kun! Hey! Little boy! It's Kawashima-san! Too late! He's dead.
What?! - Ran.
Contact the local police station! - Right! Dr.
Please inspect the body.
Now I see! That letter warned that another person on Tsukikage Island would die on the night of a full moon! It's the curse! It's the curse of the piano! There's no curse.
It's this tape recorder that's playing the music.
This was a murder designed to resemble the previous two incidents! Murder?! Hey now, don't be getting ahead of yourself.
Who the hell are you, anyway?! I'm a famous detective from Tokyo—Kogoro Mouri! Oh, the astronaut? No, he's the one in all those mystery novels.
That's Akechi.
Then who's this? Seawater.
Approximate time of death was He probably died of suffocation.
My guess is that Kawashima-san drowned.
Drowned by someone? I can't say any more without performing an autopsy.
I think Dr.
Narumi is right.
See, there's a suit jacket on the beach outside.
I bet it belongs to Kawashima-san.
There's a trail of water here that goes from the door to the piano and there's mud and sand on Kawashima-san's back.
And judging from the fact that the door and windows were all locked, and that the first few minutes of the cassette tape are blank When did he become so— The killer probably took Kawashima-san to the ocean during the memorial, drowned him, dragged the body into this room, locked the door, turned the tape recorder on, and then exited into the hallway.
Right? Y-Yeah, sounds about right to me! Assuming the door to this room was locked, there's a high possibility the killer returned to the memorial afterwards, since we were at the front door the whole time! Hold on just a second! Are you saying the killer's still among us?! Yes, the killer is in this very room.
Did anyone here see Kawashima-san leave his seat? I saw him.
He said he was going to the restroom.
Did anybody see anyone else leave their seat? As if we could remember every little thing that happened.
In that case, did anyone have any grudges with Kawashima-san? It's not exactly a grudge, but the person most happy about his death would be Shimizu-kun, his opponent in the mayoral election! What?! The same goes for you, Mayor Kuroiwa! Yes, without Kawashima-san, Daddy's victory would practically be guaranteed! As long as a certain someone wasn't plotting to steal Kawashima-san's votes, of course.
What?! Now, now, there! Calm down now But why did the killer put the body in this room? Because the killer wanted to place the blame on the cursed piano.
Say, just how long has this piano been here? It's been here ever since Aso-san donated it 15 years ago.
Aso-san, eh? Yes.
His name is even on the keyboard lid.
What's this? It's sheet music.
That's strange.
This wasn't here when we checked this afternoon.
Who was that? Nishimoto-san.
He did rather well for himself back in the day.
I hear he spent lots of money on alcohol, women, and gambling But after the mayor died 2 years ago, he stopped going out, almost as if he were afraid of something.
I see.
Wasn't he a childhood friend of yours, Mayor? Yes, I suppose you could say that Here's a policeman! You're late, Ran! But I had to look for him; he wasn't at the police station! Who called for me now? This gentleman here.
His name is Kogoro Mouri-san.
Oh, the famous— - That's right! - Astronaut! No At any rate, it's getting late.
We can put off collecting information until tomorrow morning.
This was no murder.
It was Aso-san's curse.
How horrifying They should just burn that creepy old piano! Yeah.
Maybe we'd be better off without that thing.
Shuichi? Your deductions sure surprised me, Conan-kun! He loves playing detective! Everyone was talking about how amazing his persuasiveness was! I was just pretending to be like Uncle! I always get to see him at work! He's just a baby chick compared to me, though! Well, we'll head back to the hotel now.
I'll see you later then.
Please solve this case as quickly as possible.
I'd rather not have to examine any more bodies.
Don't you worry! This'll be a piece of cake with me at the helm! Whatever.
Not even I really know what's going on yet Wait a second! That letter said, "begin to disappear" Meaning this isn't over yet! What? This murder spree has yet to continue? This letter gives warning about that? "Shadows disappearing" means "being enveloped by light".
Light stands for the song played at all the murder scenes—Moonlight! Now I see! The song Mr.
Aso played in the fire 12 years ago And the song the mayor played before he died 2 years ago It was Beethoven's piano sonata, Moonlight.
And all three incidents have taken place beside the piano.
You two go back to the hotel! Wait! Ran-neechan! Let's go to the community center too! You're crazy if you ask me.
Spending a night with a corpse like this And with a kid, too! I thought I told you to go back! But Conan-kun— Tell me, who moved the body without permission? Me.
I felt bad for the poor guy, being stuck in that position You really shouldn't have, we're not through investigating the crime scene yet - Huh? The sheet music's gone.
- What?! Oh, I took that so it wouldn't get lost.
See? Stupid old geezer Huh? This sheet music is for Moonlight! What?! Moonlight?! What're you doing? You suck! No, this fourth bar is weird Fourth bar? Maybe this sheet music is actually Kawashima-san's dying message If so, then the killer might come back for it! Pardon me When I asked for you at the hotel, they said you were all here Dr.
Narumi I brought some dinner.
Come to think of it we could use some food So you're not originally from this island then, Dr.
Narumi? No.
I return to Tokyo on the weekends.
It's almost like I work as a part-time doctor here! I've always wanted to work on a small island like this, surrounded by nature I've been working here for 2 years now! Dr.
Did Mayor Kameyama really die of a heart attack two years ago? Yes.
He had always had heart troubles But his face looked rather convulsive, almost as if he saw something horrifying Did you notice anything strange at the time? Hmm, now that you mention it! What? I think one of the windows was open.
A window? I believe we chalked that up to someone forgetting to close it, but Which window was it? If I remember right it was this window.
Who's there?! Stop! You're not getting away! Damn it! We lost him! I was right! He did come back to get this sheet music! OK! We're going to stay up all night and keep watch over this place! Agreed?! - Agreed! - Agreed! Hey.
Mouri-kun! It's afternoon.
Inspector Megure-dono What are you doing here? This island's technically part of Tokyo.
Oh, yeah.
Where did I put it? If you're looking for the sheet music, Conan-kun gave it to me.
He also gave me the gist of the situation here.
All three of them were still awake by the time I arrived.
You and that old man were the only ones asleep.
They're interrogating people over at the town hall.
Come give them a hand.
Sure We really shouldn't have slept there Dad! Well? Did you figure out who did it? Yeah, right.
There were It won't be that easy.
Sorry, but when will it be my turn? You seem exhausted, so you're scheduled to be last.
In that case, I think I'll go wash my face in the ladies' room.
How many more interviewees are there? Including Dr.
Narumi, there's six: The mayor's daughter, Reiko Kuroiwa, her fiancé, Shuichi Murasawa, mayoral candidate, Masato Shimizu, the mayor's secretary, Kazuaki Hirata, and Ken Nishimoto, who we're interviewing right now, but he's really wasting our time.
He won't say a word, no matter what we ask him.
My instincts say he did it! Idiot! There's no curse on the piano! As long as that thing's around, these murders will keep happening! But, Mayor Dispose of it immediately! You hear me, Hirata?! Y-Yes, sir! Give me a break! I've had enough of this! I have no motive for killing Kawashima-san! Ugh! Wow, listen to Reiko-san go.
She's been shouting for 10 minutes straight.
That's strange.
They're through questioning him, so why isn't Nishimoto-san leaving? Huh? I need to go to the bathroom.
Huh? Did Nishimoto-san come in here just now? No.
Crap! He took the stairs! This music It's the second movement of Moonlight Where's it coming from?! The broadcast room! Nishimoto-san! Too late! No, don't go inside! Get the examiners and autopsy team here at once! Inspector.
The autopsy team left for Tokyo this evening to work on Kawashima-san.
What?! Damn it! Now, of all times! Um I can do it Dr.
Narumi But now this narrows down the suspects to a handful of people! So the killer is still— All the exits to this building are guarded by police.
Damn it! Who is it? Who's the killer?! It appears only a few minutes have passed since the victim's death.
Yes, the first 5 minutes and 30 seconds of this tape seem to be blank.
Inspector Megure! There was something strange beneath the body! - What?! - What?! Sheet music? Is this another dying message from the victim? No.
If he had the time and strength to write all this with his own blood, he would've called for help instead.
The killer probably left each of these behind to— You stay out of this! Oh no! That's important evidence! It's okay! You're in the way! Get out of here! Seeing as Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata was played after each murder, it would seem the same person killed Kawashima-san and Kuroiwa-san.
And judging from the amount of blank tape, Kuroiwa-san must have been killed around 6:30, only minutes before he was found.
In other words, the killer must have been one of you, since you were the only ones in the community center at the time! Ken Nishimoto Excluding Mouri-kun and the others, that leaves us with Ken Nishimoto-san, who was the first to find him, Narumi Asai Dr.
Narumi Asai, who was kind enough to inspect the body for us just now, Kazuaki Hirata Kazuaki Hirata-san, secretary to the late Mayor Kuroiwa, Shuichi Murasawa Reiko Kuroiwa Mayor Kuroiwa's daughter, Reiko Kuroiwa-san and her fiancé, Shuichi Murasawa-san.
Masato Shimizu And then Masato Shimizu-san, candidate in the mayoral election.
Hold on! Why am I a suspect?! You've been questioning me since 6:20! You're right, you couldn't have done it Then you can exclude Dr.
Narumi too! She's been with us since 6:00.
- Right, Conan-kun? - Yeah! So that leaves the four men as the only suspects Excuse me, but I've been on this floor since 6:00 or so Do you have anyone to substantiate this? You can all vouch for me, right? Sorry, but I went to the restroom around 6:30.
Tell me, Nishimoto-san You were the first person to find Kuroiwa-san What exactly were you doing there? Kuroiwa said he wanted to see me.
Are you sure you didn't ask to see him so you could kill him?! No! It was Shimizu! With Kawashima and my father taken out of the election, he'd automatically wind up in the mayor's seat! - Oh? What are you looking at, Conan-kun? - Don't be stupid! - The sheet music the killer left at the murder scene.
- I would never stoop that low! My guess is that it's a coded message from the murderer.
I wonder if there's anything special about these sharps and flats Those are the black keys on the keyboard.
You know? Keyboard? Arrest this homicidal maniac before he kills anyone else— Better watch out.
You're next.
Conan-kun? This code's easy if you know how to read it.
It's based on the notes that correspond with specific piano keys if you arrange the letters of the alphabet across a piano keyboard.
Using this, the music found where Kawashima-san was killed says, "Better watch out.
You're next.
" See? You're amazing, Conan-kun! What does the other sheet music say?! Let's see "Extinguished is the anger of the hellfire.
" The anger of the hellfire?! Could it be that pianist who killed himself in a fire 12 years ago?! It's him! Keiji Aso's alive! No he isn't.
The bones found in the ashes matched his dental records.
He's most certainly dead.
Everything was completely scorched— all that was left was some sheet music in a fireproof safe.
Sheet music?! Where? Where is this sheet music?! In the community center storeroom.
But the key to the storeroom's back at the station Then go get it! Alright! Wait, officer! I'm coming too! Conan-kun! Say, did Aso-san really set his own house on fire? Yes, there were four eyewitnesses.
Our previous mayor, Kameyama-san, Mayor Kuroiwa, Nishimoto-san, and Kawashima-san.
Were those four connected in any way? They were all classmates, including Aso-san.
Then what about that Murasawa guy? He showed up on the island 3 years ago.
He and the mayor's daughter Reiko-san were engaged not too long ago.
The mayor opposed it, though.
What about Hirata, the mayor's secretary? He's suspicious if you ask me.
I'm not quite sure what the deal was, but he was always sneaking around with Kawashima-san at the community center.
What about Shimizu? He has a strong sense of justice and he's very popular with the fishermen! Are you out of questions, Akechi-kun? Eh? Huh? That's odd! I could swear it was around here somewhere Come on.
You've been looking for over an hour now.
Here we go! Here's the key! Officer! Ran-neechan! You took too long! Everyone grew tired of waiting so they went home! All the suspects left?! Yeah.
The killer's last message said that the hellfire's anger was extinguished, so they figured there would be no more murders.
Idiots! Only the 1st and 2nd movements of Moonlight have been played at each of the murder scenes so far! Moonlight has one movement left! I'm going to check out the community center! Wait! Conan-kun! Talk about curious, Conan-kun Hurry! Just hold on, will you? Did you just hear a strange sound come from the piano room? No Conan-kun! Stop! M-Murasawa-san! Ran! The storeroom! Nishimoto-san! Officer! Go call Inspector Megure! I'm on it! Was the 3rd movement played? There's 30 minutes per side on this tape, which means Nishimoto-san died within the last 30 minutes! Look, Conan-kun! There's some more sheet music at Nishimoto-san's feet! What does it say this time? "Will".
It's his will?! Then does that mean— —it was a suicide? According to the will, he regretted killing Mr.
Kawashima and Mr.
Kuroiwa Nishimoto killed the two of them?! He apparently didn't want an old mistake they made to be made known.
"They" refers to Mr.
Kameyama, who died 2 years ago, Mr.
Kawashima and Mr.
Kuroiwa, who were just killed, Mr.
Nishimoto, who hanged himself, and Mr.
Aso, who killed himself 12 years ago.
The pianist too? My guess is that they did something, using this code.
I see.
Nishimoto-san was afraid their old secret would get out so he broke into the storeroom to destroy the sheet music.
But unable to find the music and driven into a psychological corner, he committed suicide.
I don't think it was a suicide.
It's impossible to hang yourself without something to support you, right? Are you sure you didn't put it away? Of course not.
And I doubt there's anyone who would go and write their own will in code.
Are you saying the murderer is somewhere else? - I saw some suspicious people.
- What?! Two people in the piano room.
One broke a window and escaped.
The other was that Murasawa guy.
Someone beat him up.
Narumi's treating him in the piano room right now.
Ow! Why didn't you say that sooner?! Dad! You still haven't found Mr.
Aso's sheet music?! It was 12 years ago; there's no way for me to remember where we put it.
Is he still unconscious? Yes.
I think he may have suffered a concussion.
Say, Kuroiwa-san.
What was Murasawa-san doing here this late anyway? How should I know?! This is a Keep your hands off Shuichi's stuff! What is that? Don't ask me! But it was important to Shuichi! That's a tuning hammer, used to tune pianos.
So he was the one who— OK! Bring all the suspects to the town hall at once! Yes, sir! What are you doing, Conan-kun? Let's go to the town hall.
The suspicious person who ran out of this room was looking for something under the piano.
Here we are! Wow, a hidden panel! Cool! Drugs! "Tsukikage Island Town Hall" Judging from the methods employed in all three murders, they are all clearly the work of the same person! Dr.
Narumi and Reiko Kuroiwa-san have confirmed alibis and are no longer suspects.
But there are no alibis for the secretary Hirata-san, the mayoral candidate Shimizu-san, nor for Murasawa-san, who is currently resting at the clinic The killer is one of these three! Dr.
Is Murasawa-san still unconscious? Yes.
Reiko-san is looking after him, but he has yet to regain consciousness.
There's something nagging at me, but what could it be?! Ever since I saw the code of blood left at the scene of the crime Inspector.
The photos taken from where Mr.
Kuroiwa was murdered are ready! - Good.
Place them on that desk.
- Yes, sir! What's that light by Kuroiwa-san's neck? It's off in the picture where he's been moved.
Um, may I buy some juice? I'm thirsty I suppose that'd be all right.
He's injured? Say, Mister.
There's some white powder on your sleeves.
What?! Money from all over the world! I'm fond of foreign countries.
What's wrong, Officer? I finally found the sheet music Aso-san left behind! Let me see that! "To my son, Seiji.
" Son? Oh, come to think of it, Aso-san had a son too He fell seriously ill when he was little and had to be hospitalized I believe Seiji was his name Seiji?! It couldn't be! Hey, wait! Where do you think you're going?! Ah, now I see! The reason the killer dragged Kawashima-san into the piano room after drowning him! The meaning of the music played at the murder scenes! And the mystery behind the code written in blood! There's no doubt about it! That's the one who did it! Old man Mouri received a letter from a dead man and then headed to Tsukikage Island.
The letter's author was Keiji Aso, a pianist who murdered his family, lit his house on fire, and died while playing the Moonlight piano sonata.
The first murder happened on the night of the memorial for Mr.
Kameyama, the previous mayor.
Hideo Kawashima was found dead in the piano room, while the first movement of Moonlight played.
The second murder took place as the second movement played.
The victim was the current mayor, Tatsuji Kuroiwa.
The number of suspects was narrowed down to six people.
The third murder was that of Ken Nishimoto.
He was killed in a manner that made it look like suicide.
"To my son, Seiji.
" Ah, now I see! The reason the killer dragged Kawashima-san into the piano room after drowning him! The meaning of the music played at the murder scenes! And the mystery behind the code written in blood! There's no doubt about it! That's the one who did it! What's the big idea, rushing here to the broadcast room like that?! Is there something here?! No, not really.
I've got no choice! I'll have to use the old man's voice for this! One shot of this Tranquilizer Watch Gun and Hirata-san and Shimizu-san will have to come to the mainland with us tomorrow morning.
You can't be serious! The first incident, in which Mr.
Kawashima was drowned and dragged into the community center's piano room last night The second incident, in which Mr.
Kuroiwa was murdered in the broadcast room this very night The third incident, which also took place this very night, in which Mr.
Nishimoto was killed in the storeroom in such a way to make it look like a suicide The only ones without alibis for these three incidents are you two and Murasawa-san, who is resting at the clinic.
I'm sorry to do this, but we'll have to watch you tonight— I've figured it out, Inspector! Almost everything about the murders on this island, that is.
Dad! You're in the broadcast room? First, the person who beat Murasawa-san unconscious in the piano room.
That would be you, Hirata-san! What?! Hirata-san suffered the injury on his left hand when he broke the window and escaped.
You were also the suspicious person we saw last night.
But what was he doing? He was making deals with Mr.
Kawashima in that room.
Drug deals.
Drugs?! Hirata-san used a hidden panel in the piano to trade drugs he bought overseas for large sums of money.
Aha! So that's why they were at the community center every single night! The reason Hirata-san always claimed the piano was cursed was to keep people from getting in the way.
He probably assaulted Murasawa-san and escaped because Murasawa-san saw him taking back the drugs he had left there! Does that mean you killed Mr.
Kawashima because you were having a dispute with him about the deals?! No! Hirata-san has nothing to do with the three murders.
If he was the murderer, he wouldn't have killed anyone in the piano room.
That was the room where he left the drugs, after all.
Next is Murasawa-san.
He's the killer?! He's not the killer either.
The reason the killer wrote a will to make it look a suicide but didn't place an object to stand on in the room was because the murderer bolted when Ran and the others showed up.
It would have been impossible to enter the piano room afterward.
You're right! So far, our image of the killer has been that of a man, because all three murders required someone with strength.
And someone without an alibi.
The only suspect left is Shimizu-san Next, we need to look at the second murder.
We assumed Kuroiwa-san was killed only minutes before he was found.
But if you'll remember the blood code didn't come off when Conan fell on it.
At room temperature, it takes 15 to But that blood was dry, even though he was supposedly killed only minutes before.
That's right.
It was a trick the killer did to alter the estimated time of death.
What?! But only the first 5 and a half minutes of the tape were blank! Automatic tape reverse.
The killer played the 2nd side of the tape— which had no music on it— and gained 30 extra minutes by using tape reverse.
Please have a look at the photographs.
There's a button lit near Kuroiwa-san's neck.
And the light is off just after his body is moved.
That's proof that the killer turned it off when you weren't looking.
But if I remember correctly, the one who approached the body was— That's right.
The person who got near the body, aside from the police The person who faked the estimated time of death was the one who inspected the body: you, Dr.
Narumi! That's not true, is it, Dr.
Narumi?! You drowned Kawashima-san and dragged him into the piano room in order to send the coroners back to the mainland, since they wouldn't be able to examine an unnatural death here.
And the reason you put blank space at the start of each tape was so that you could throw us off by faking the time of the 2nd murder.
Doing this, you altered Kuroiwa-san's time of death, thereby creating an alibi for yourself.
But Mouri-kun! You just said the killer was a man! The motive for the murders extends 12 years back.
Come again? Back to the incident in which pianist Keiji Aso and his family were killed.
Killed?! Kawashima-san, Nishimoto-san, Kuroiwa-san, and the previous mayor, Kameyama-san They used Aso-san's international performances as opportunities to buy and sell drugs.
But then Aso-san said he refused to help them any longer.
Afraid their secret would get out, they shut him and his family inside his house and set it on fire.
This is all written in the sheet music that survived that fire In the confession letter that Aso-san wrote for his child A son?! He had a son in a Tokyo hospital.
One named Seiji.
Seiji? It couldn't be Dr.
Narumi's real name is Seiji.
Narumi Asai Seiji Aso She was Keiji Aso's son, Seiji Aso! You can't be serious! Asai is probably his foster family's last name.
So it was all to avenge his father - Inspector! The killer's gone! - What?! Find him! I know where he is! The place where Aso Keiji's donated piano is kept: the community center! It's over, Father.
It's not over yet! Here, look at this! It's written in this sheet music your dad left for you! He says he wants you to live an honest life! I wish I had known that sooner.
How did you find out about your father if you haven't read this?! I always had my suspicions about my foster father.
After graduating from medical school, I came to this island as a woman doctor.
It doesn't say on my license how to pronounce my name, after all.
But I was sweating bullets when they started questioning people.
They would've found out I was really a man.
I see.
So that's why you stayed with us that night— so you could have them question you last.
When I told Kameyama, the previous mayor, that I was Aso's son, he suddenly grew fearful and told me everything.
He finished it all off by falling lifeless from a heart attack.
It was when I played my father's favorite piece, Moonlight, as a farewell song for him that I came up with the idea for these murders.
Seiji! Let's get out of here! We can still make it! It's too late for me.
These hands are as bloodstained as theirs are.
Conan-kun! Dammit! - No! - Let go! What's that sound? This is the code.
He's playing it.
Inside the fire.
Murasawa-san missed Keiji Aso, the pianist, so he apparently tuned his piano on occasion On the night he was assaulted, too.
Why did Dr.
Narumi warn us about the murders? My only guess is that it was actually a letter of challenge to Dad I think she wanted to be stopped from killing Say, what did the code that Dr.
Narumi played say? Oh, I already forgot.
