Yeah, but they're still pretty! You serious? I agree with you, old man.
What's that guy up to? Please, sir! Don't touch the art! And smoking is prohibited! Oh, sorry What a weirdo.
Okay! Here goes! Catch it, you guys! Why are we playing baseball and not soccer?! Conan! It's all yours! Where are you aiming?! Are you all right?! I'm so sorry! Oh? Didn't I see you at the You were drawing sketches? Huh? He was drawing these just now? Why do you always draw the same pictures? Why do I always I don't know Hey, Conan.
Is he hurt? Shall we call an ambulance?! Are you serious?! Who Who am I? I can't even remember my name Does he have amnesia?! Because of me?! No! The ball hit his arm! My head hurts! Are you all right?! My head my head hurts! "Yamada General Hospital" So, he really has amnesia? Yes.
His headaches occur as his memory slowly returns.
What a surprise What a shock So, he still doesn't know who he is Poor guy Don't worry! We notified the police, so we'll know soon enough! Whoops! I forgot to leave his sketchbook! It's that man's, right? Then let's go back! You two, check the emergency exit! Yes, sir! Did something happen? Actually, the patient you brought in just disappeared.
I take it he didn't leave through the front door.
No, we haven't seen him.
What about his clothes and things? It looks like he changed clothes and took his things with him.
Did his memory return?! But then why would he disappear? Just where did he go? Ready?! Here it comes! Ugh! Why aren't we playing soccer?! Genta-kun! It's yours! I got it! It's all mine! Ow You okay, Genta?! What the It's the man from yesterday! Did the ball hit him again?! No! He was strangled with string or something! No way! He was murdered?! Inspector, he was strangled to death, probably sometime last evening.
His pockets are empty.
Alright, Conan! What's the big idea?! Bugging the inspector again, are ya?! No, no, Mouri-kun.
These children discovered the body.
The victim was here last night, too? Yes! Perhaps the killer marked him and mugged him when he was alone A robbery, huh? Oh, brother Say, Inspector! The victim's paint supplies are gone! Paint supplies? His canvas and easel are gone, too! So is his paint box! His bag, too! He had such items? They must've been stolen as well.
Yeah, right! Nobody'd ever steal that junk, it'd just weigh 'em down! Besides, one of his shoelaces is in a granny knot, which means he didn't tie it himself.
The ginkgo leaf in his shoe is strange, too.
There are no ginkgo trees here.
Judging from his location, he must've been killed somewhere and tossed over the bridge during the night! And why did he disappear from the hospital? This doesn't seem like any ordinary mugging to me! We need to find out who he is first Say, Inspector, I think this is actually— Hey! I'll tolerate you getting in my way, but not the Inspector's! But Go play somewhere else! Now, then, Inspector.
Let's have a look at the victim.
Okay! Let's get started! What should we do? We're the Detective Boys! Wow! Talk about dependable! Department Store So, behind the house is a pylon on the right and a factory on the left I get it! So we just find that house! Okay! Let's do it! Not here! Nor here! It's not here, either! How about you, Ayumi-chan? I found it! There it is! It even has a ginkgo tree! "Okita House Cleaning" "Hayase" This car's brand new.
Why does she want it so clean that there's not a single hair left? It's the same with the house.
She wants everything a person might touch wiped clean.
Don't tell me it's to erase fingerprints Hey! What're you guys doing?! Kimie Hayase (37) It's still dirty.
Go through again and—oh? Hello! Here you are! Oh, yes! I have some nice cookies! Just a minute! Her apron's tied with a granny knot! The sofas and tables are different, and there's no TV.
It's completely different from the pictures.
Say, Miss.
Did you remodel this room recently? Yes.
Why do you ask? Where's all the old stuff? I threw it all away.
Is that painting new, too? Yes.
It arrived from the art gallery just two days ago.
Isn't it lovely? This is bad.
It'll be hard to prove, now Incidentally, what did you want to ask me? Um, you go, Mitsuhiko-kun What was it, again? Conan-kun! Look at that! Tatsuo Hayase (47) It's him! It looks just like him! Even that characteristic nose is the same! Huh? He's wearing glasses! Who's he? My husband.
When did he pass away? Why? He looks just like a murder victim discovered this morning! Then it was someone else.
My husband supposedly died a year ago.
Supposedly? Disaster disappearance? Normal Disappearance — 7 Years A person is normally presumed dead after going missing for 7 years, but people in natural disasters or shipwrecks Disaster Disappearance — 1 Year are presumed dead after only one year.
Come to think of it, a rich banker by the name of Hayase was caught in an avalanche and went missing a year ago Yeah! That's him! You have a good memory, Dad! That's why I'm such a great detective.
Back then, there were rumors that he embezzled huge sums of money.
He was just about to be investigated, so the authorities figured it was a sham at first.
The embezzled money couldn't be tracked down, so it was assumed he disappeared with it.
But, it was eventually called a disaster disappearance? Yeah.
Anyway, Conan.
Have you told Inspector Megure? Yeah! He had her verify the body! District Police Station — Charnel He resembles my husband, but it's not him.
Say, does the late Hayase-san have any relatives? A father, or mother, or siblings? No.
He had no relatives.
Why do you ask? No reason In other words, you're the only one who can verify his body? I suppose so.
No smoking! Sorry Incidentally, did Mr.
Hayase do paintings? Yeah! We can check the fingerprints on his old things! Right, Inspector?! Yes.
My husband did indeed paint.
He was painting in the mountains when the avalanche struck.
But I threw out all his things.
All of them? The media and society started to condemn me, too, for the whole embezzlement thing.
I wanted to forget my husband quickly.
In the end, all we can do is take her word for it No! There's no doubt that the victim is Tatsuo Hayase-san! There's gotta be some way to prove it! Hello! Oh Sorry! We left something here last time! Those cookies earlier were so good! We'd love to have more! Oh, is that what you "left" here? Bingo! Just a minute! Are there any traces left that the victim was here?! What're you doing, Conan? Some kind of burn mark Ginkgo leaves If they're lying here, then they'd come inside if the window was open Wait a minute! The leaf, the window, the burn mark, the glasses-less victim, and the painting on the wall! I've finally found it! Proof that Hayase-san returned here with his memory intact! Inspector Megure! The victim is unquestionably Tatsuo Hayase-san! I've finally found proof of it! What?! Really, Mouri-kun?! Seriously, Inspector Megure?! Yes! Come immediately, Mouri-kun! Now, what is this all about?! I understand how you feel.
Mouri-kun will explain But I thought you were going to— But, I guess not.
Allow me, the great detective Kogoro Mouri, to shed light on the truth behind this incident.
One year ago, Mr.
Hayase went into the mountains to paint and was caught in an avalanche.
He luckily survived, but lost his memory.
He then walked all over as a wandering artist, unconsciously drawing his house all the while.
A year passed, and he was judged to have disappeared by disaster.
In short, his wife inherited his estate.
So? So, you couldn't have him showing up now! What do you mean, Mouri-kun? Her inheritance likely included the missing money he had embezzled! So, she killed Mr.
Hayase when he returned yesterday, memory intact! So she could keep all the money! Are you serious, Mouri-kun?! My husband died in the mountains a year ago.
Or do you have proof he was alive? You're right, I don't.
That's because you disposed of all of his things.
Naturally, you removed all possible fingerprints and hairs, too! You even hired a cleaning company to be extra sure! Which means you can't prove anything.
But, the victim left behind a connection with you: a ginkgo leaf in his shoe.
There were no ginkgo trees where he was found.
Yes, there's a ginkgo tree next to my house and all over Tokyo, too! One other thing, for some reason, only one of the victim's shoelaces was in a granny knot just like your apron! You're right! Now that you mention it Probably, when you put his shoes on after killing him, you noticed one was untied! Not wanting to be suspected, you decided to tie it.
Claiming I did it because of a granny knot? Hilarious.
I'll have no more of these insults! I'll take you to court! Dad Are you sure about this, Mouri-kun? You have proof, I hope?! Well, then, let me get to the real point.
Ran! Stand in front of the painting! Me? Yes.
Okay Like this? That's just fine.
Now, Miss.
Was Mr.
Hayase a heavy smoker? That's right.
And you hate cigarettes, correct? No smoking! Sorry What about it? Mr.
Hayase, after regaining his memory and leaving the hospital, stood in front of this painting, cigarette in mouth.
Naturally, you opened the window.
Several ginkgo leaves likely fell inside then.
One got stuck to his foot while he was inside the house.
But how do you know he was smoking there? Because of the burn mark on the wooden cabinet.
As there was no ashtray in the house, he put it out there.
I hope you're not going to make me laugh by saying that's your proof.
Miss, was Mr.
Hayase near-sighted? Yes.
Ran, think back.
Look at that painting the way he did at the Beika Art Museum.
If I remember right I think he got near it and— Stop! What is it? I get it! His fingerprints, Dad! Fingerprints? Are you saying there are some on that painting? But you said she cleaned the whole place of fingerprints and hair! Yes.
She even hired a cleaning company.
But think about it, Inspector.
No professional would wipe down a bare painting.
That's true But, if he had a habit of grabbing paintings, she would've known! No.
That habit began after he lost his memory.
Before he got amnesia, Mr.
Hayase wore glasses for his near-sightedness.
But, he lost them in the avalanche.
After that, he started getting close to paintings because of his poor vision.
And he formed a habit of grabbing them to get a good look.
When Mr.
Hayase returned here and looked at the painting, his wife likely opened the window to air out the smoke.
As her back was to him, she probably didn't notice this.
So, she overlooked it? Miss.
Can you explain why your husband's fingerprints are on a picture you put up two days ago? Takagi-kun! Call the examiners! Check for prints! Right! I concede.
He did come here.
It's all as the detective said.
I killed him.
I drugged his coffee and strangled him with a rope.
Still, why did you dump him in such a conspicuous spot? I didn't want to wait any longer! He was finally classified as missing and I got his embezzled money! If people learned he was alive, amnesia or not, he might've lost all his money! Seriously! I suffered because my husband was an embezzler That money was mine! I wanted to get my time, and life, back! You'll have plenty of time.
Behind bars, that is.
