Baron of the Night Murder Case (3)

A COLDFUSION & BAARO RELEASE A racing second hand, a shooting comet! Conan's logic works wonders on hearts tired by modern society! Today's finally the last chapter! An unexpected culprit beneath the mask! He sees the single truth for what it is, and looks like a kid but has the mind of an adult.

Agasa, his friend, and his friend's granddaughter.
Whoever determines the organizer's identity gets to stay for free and receives floppy disks containing a certain program.
But then Ebara-san—dressed as the Night Baron—fell to his death! It was clearly a murder! How did the killer leave after pushing Ebara-san off his balcony? He then knocked out a karate expert guarding the body and appeared before us as the Night Baron! Ran's kicks were useless.

Yeah, a third level black belt.
Really? Who could've done that? Come to think of it, he did dodge all of Ran's kicks! And the only suspect capable of reading her attacks was the Japanese karate champion, Satoru Maeda! Only he could've done it.
So that's why neither of them ran after the Night Baron! They both realized it was him! Ran What would Shin'ichi do in this situation? What would Shin'ichi Eh? If I knew the criminal? Yeah.
For example, what if it was Dr.
Agasa? I'd turn him in.
Eh? Seriously? Yeah.
I'd flat out say, "You did it!" So you can look cool, huh? No way.
I'd probably be dead tired by then I'd have tried my utmost to prove that he didn't do it first Okay Sorry, Satoru.
If only I hadn't recommended this tour It's okay.
I came along because I wanted to.
This is all the Night Baron's fault Satoru.
Don't tell me you No, it's nothing! I'm off to bed.
Good night.
Good night.
SHIZUOKA POLICE AUTHORIZED PERSONNEL ONLY INTERROGATION ROOM Detective Yokomizo.
We have a lost item from the victim's room.
You do? There's something odd on the security lock.
What? Let me see.
Yes.
This is cellophane tape.
Huh? Conan-kun! Who set the security lock?! I locked it from the outside! Using this cellophane tape! First, you cut yourself an appropriate length and then fold it in two, leaving a few centimeters of the sticky part.
Then you align the lock perpendicularly, place the tape on it, and close the door.
One tug of the tape and Oh, wow.
Pull it more, and the tape comes off and the evidence disappears.
See? I dunno Don't these rooms have auto-locks? That's okay! You can use a room key to see if a room is locked or not, and you can peel the tape off if need be! But this tip would've been in the killer's blind spot! So he must not have noticed this tape left behind! Say, wasn't the key lying with his clothes near the door? Oh, yeah! That's right! After the killer took his key, dressed him up as the Night Baron and threw him over, he left the room and set the security lock using this trick! Then, after double-checking the lock, he tossed the key into the room! That would seal the room and make it look like an accident! How'd you figure out that trick? I saw it on a mystery drama.
So the issue now is in our six suspects' alibis! Maeda-san, who was with Ran-san and Conan Sayama-san, who was watching TV Kon'no-san, who was in his room reading his e-mail Kamijo-san, who was in the pub with Mouri-san And Kaneshiro-san and Hayashi-san, who were in the outside restaurant.
I know Sayama-san's alibi.
She said she called the front desk at 10:00.
Yes, she did ask for a wake-up call at 10:00.
I remember her call well.
It was right after I heard people screaming.
The victim was in Room 2101.
She couldn't have done it Plus she was with Ran and Conan when they ran into the Night Baron.
She's in the clear.
But why did the killer do that? Or even steal the costume? They were probably worried when we realized it was a murder! That's gotta be it! Do you have records of Kon'no-san from Room 2002? He supposedly used the phone for online access until after 10:00.
Yes.
He used it from But that doesn't mean he spoke with anyone! Sounds suspicious to me Kamijo-san is suspicious too.
Darn him! Princess Hotel 2F Pub Emerald Kamijo-san drugged my glass?! Yes.
You fell asleep afterward Knew it! Kamijo-san's pills were a sleeping drug! Did she drug the old man to create an alibi? What about her? She went to the restroom, but returned five minutes later.
So she was here when the murder occurred? Yes.
She left when she heard the commotion.
Were those old folks really here? Yes.
They rushed to the front of the crowd after hearing someone fell.
The front? Crap! I suspected them! It's okay.
We've narrowed it down to two suspects now! That's true.
The only ones with unconfirmed alibis are Kon'no-san and Maeda-san.
Maeda-san was with us in the observation lounge, but he's the one who checked the time, so he could've lied.
And considering that the knocked-out officer was a karate expert, Maeda-san must be the one who Conan-kun! Ran-neechan! Where's Dad? Over there.
What happened? I found an alibi for Maeda-san! After he left us, he met some fans of his at the lounge entrance! They even asked for the date and time with his autographs! The time was 10:03! They're sure of it, because they even checked their own watches! Shouldn't you bring them here, then? Right! I'll go get them! Ah! So Maeda-san wasn't the killer! Wait a minute! Then why didn't he mention it when he was questioned?! It's an airtight alibi! Maybe he couldn't mention it? But why? It's the pen I dropped.
It's leaking ink from the shock Not surprising it did fall from Ebara-san's room on the 21st floor Huh? That's odd.
He fell off the same balcony but hit the statue Oh, right.
The wind blew it over The wind?! Hey, miss waitress! Yes? Was the wind blowing when that person fell? Come to think of it, there was a strong wind It constantly blows at night this time of the year.
From the left of that statue to the right.
It's our famous "Princess Wind!" It's a lot stronger higher up, though! Hold on There's one place where the wind I can't believe I didn't realize something this simple Now I'm sure! That's the killer! What?! The knocked-out officer was a karate expert?! Okay! Now I know who did it! I will now begin my explanation! Gather all the suspects here! Right! This is a problem Officers! The detective wants you to do this stuff in the suspects' rooms.
What is this? He says it's an experiment! And that it'll prove who did it! As for your alibis for when the victim fell at 10:00 The alibis of Kaneshiro-san, Hayashi-san, Sayama-san, and Kamijo-san have all been confirmed.
Damn it! Where's the signal?! The only ones with vague alibis are Maeda-san, who was in the observation lounge, and Kon'no-san, who was in his room, but after murdering the victim, the killer stupidly stole the costume from the office where the body was and then ran into Sayama-san and the others unaware that the officer he knocked out was a karate expert! A karate expert?! Yes.
The only one capable of knocking such a person out in one blow is the former Japanese karate champion, Satoru Maeda-san Wait, Dad! Maeda-san's not the killer! He was with them during the murder! It's true! No way! Then who did it? Will you get serious?! Of course! The killer is the alibi-less Shiro Kon'no! Don't be fooled by his looks, people! Hide it as he may, this man is actually a karate expert! Or not Quit fooling around! There's the signal! Who's the killer?! Mouri-san! Can you tell us already? Are you really a skilled detective?! Like I said, the killer's Mouri-san! Well, enough of this foolishness.
Why, you Hold on.
This is Mouri-san's deduction pose.
Right, Ran-san? Yes! Before I begin my deduction, please step away from the statue and out of harm's way.
What are you going to do? An experiment.
What are these?! Blankets that I had dressed up as people and dropped from above.
Dropped from each of the suspects' rooms, with their numbers on them.
Room 2101! This is from Tokio Ebara-san's room, where the murder occurred! But he fell directly onto that statue! It couldn't have been carried this far by the wind.
But it was.
By the "Princess Wind.
" This strong wind blows past the hotel at nights this time of year Kaneshiro, Hayashi Ebara Kamijo Kon'no Maeda, Sayama Princess Wind Statue From the left of the statue to the right.
It was also blowing when the victim fell.
Correct, Ms.
Waitress? Yes! I think it was blowing even harder than it is now! Moreover, he was wearing a Night Baron outfit with high air resistance.
If he had been pushed off his own balcony, I doubt he would've fallen onto the statue directly below.
Even the blanket dropped from Kaneshiro-san's room one floor below is lying far off to the side.
Now I see! We were fooled by the glove on the balcony and the locked room trick! Those weren't meant to simply make it look like an accident - they were also traps to make it look like that's where it happened! Correct.
The killer didn't lock the room after the murder; he locked it before committing the murder in his own room! Meaning the most suspect are the blankets lying by the statue! Room 2102's Kamijo-san, Room 2002's Kon'no-san, and Room 1901's Sayama-san! It's just a coincidence! After all, everyone else's are by the statue, too! It's indeed a coincidence that it was pierced, but it's no coincidence that it fell there! Besides, the killer is neither Kamijo-san nor Kon'no-san! Their windows are off to the side of the victim's balcony.
Looking at the point of impact, it would be instantly obvious that he didn't fall from there.
But Sayama-san's room is directly below theirs! Her room's blanket must've landed there by coincidence It's no coincidence.
There's a spot One directly below the victim's balcony where there's almost no wind! The call she made to the front desk to create an alibi conversely proves that she was in the room at the time of the murder.
So then the killer's No! I did it! I pushed him off! Akiko didn't do it! She even ran into the killer me, dressed as the Night Baron! Yes, it was me! I did it all alone! Satoru.
So it was you who did that to cover for me Cover for you? Right.
Maeda-san stole the Night Baron costume and ran into her to rid her of all suspicion.
But he was not an accomplice.
He did it of his own accord when he realized who the killer was.
Yes.
Upon seeing the necktie's knot, for example.
It's unclear if that was the killer's own style or not, but Maeda-san did find something in his room.
Something that was floating in the pool later The wig! Yes.
He was likely convinced when he found it among the killer's things Convinced that she was the killer! That can't be! The wig was in the room because Ebara-san and the Night Baron happened to have the same hairstyle, making it unnecessary! So that's why he risked running into her with the stolen costume and the wig on! Yes.
And he was prepared to be caught.
The reason he kept quiet about having people to vouch for his alibi was because it would cause problems if he were caught.
He planned to take the fall in place of Akiko-san if it came down to it! Don't make me laugh.
Thanks to you, my perfect crime was ruined! Akiko! That's right, I did it! I killed him! To avenge my brother who he killed three years ago! Killed?! Pretty much! He hacked the "Workshop" software my brother bet the company on! Workshop?! You know about it?! Yes, it's the software Ebara sold me three years ago! Had I known it was stolen, I would've taken it off the market! My brother jumped off the company building before that! I've lived to avenge him ever since and then I came up with this Mystery Tour.
My lure was the infamous "Night Baron" virus.
He immediately took the bait unaware that it didn't exist Yes.
After I drove Satoru off, the bait I used to lure Ebara into our room was once again the virus.
He rushed over immediately, once he got a whiff of the virus's location.
Then I put sleeping pills in his drink, locked his room as planned, then sent him plummeting from my room! Just like my brother! My only oversight was that you, Kogoro Mouri, would be on the tour! But you didn't even blink after I pushed Conan-kun into the pool.
Satoru.
This is the kind of woman I am.
So forget about me already! I'll be waiting.
I'll be waiting until you get out! You moron After that, Akiko-san slightly nodded and got into the police car.
Maeda-san was taken into another car for police obstruction, but Detective Yokomizo says he may get off on mitigating circumstances.
As we watched the cars leave, the Princess Wind cried sadly around us.

So that's why you drugged his drink That's right.
I figured I could check the Great Detective's notes to find out who the Night Baron was.
But his notebook was blank.
Why would you go that far? I only wanted the virus so I could make a vaccine.
It looks like they wanted it for bad reasons, though.
How rude.
I simply wished to punish the owner of the virus that ruined my beloved software "son" four years ago! And you even faked your bad eyesight? Oh, you knew? I had hoped to keep people off guard What kind of software was it? I believe it was "Project: High School Girl Paradise," sir.
Oh, that's right! That reminds me, Ran-chan! I heard you scoured the entire hotel to prove Maeda-san's alibi! I really looked up to him! Plus he taught me that you can't ever give up until the very end He? Oh? You called your boyfriend? No, that's no it! Who's this "he?" Not you too, Conan-kun! You know who I mean! That wandering mystery geek! NEXT EPISODE Come on! Hang in there! Hey, look! Guts-Man! Hey! Did you drink that?! Say, there's a sticker on that Guts-Man!
