There's a refrigerator here, and the ice could've been brought from home.
Meaning the murder weapon is the issue.
Yes Yuko-san.
Are there any ice picks in this classroom? Yes.
In the bottom drawer, next to the microwave oven.
Inspector.
These iron skewers have sharp tips.
Yuko-san.
Do you keep count of how many there are? Yes.
There should be ten.
There are only nine here.
That can't be! There were ten when I counted last night! Inspector! We have our murder weapon! The killer stole a skewer from that drawer in advance and used it to stab Uemori-san! But could you really stab with this? There's nowhere to grip it.
If it were me, I'd choose something with a handle.
Plus, the mark on her back seemed smaller than those skewers' tips.
Inspector.
We should check their belongings.
Yeah.
Okay, everyone.
Please place all your belongings on the table.
Everyone has aprons, pens, handkerchiefs, and recipes I don't see the skewer anywhere.
Oh? Only Kazue-san has a notebook and a brush.
So what?! I don't like that tone of yours! Yuko-san.
After Kazue-san arrived, did you leave the classroom? Yes, I went to the bathroom.
I've figured it out.
You killed her, Kazue-san! Kazue-san did?! You can't be serious! You stole the skewer while Yuko-san was in the bathroom! You were able to accurately find and stab Uemori-san in the dark because your eyes were used to the dark thanks to those dark glasses! Isn't that right?! Quit joking around! I'm sensitive to light due to my age! That's why I wear these glasses! Kazue-san.
During class, you left your bag at your feet instead of in the dining room.
Why? Because it's more convenient that way! Yes, for taking out the skewer! I don't have the skewer! Besides, how could I stab someone if it didn't have a handle?! But you could make one.
Using this brush of yours! This will create a handle! Oh! You're right! And the skewer in question is hidden in this notebook! I-It's not there?! That's impossible! The skewer is supposed to be under the rings! Hey.
Is this the missing skewer? A splint? Oh, yeah! My mother-in-law did that! She asked if there was anything to use as a splint last night.
It would seem the murder weapon wasn't a skewer.
Yeah Honestly! Give me a break, will you?! Hello? This is Megure.
Got it.
That was the hospital.
Uemori-san's wound was 5 cm deep and under 1 mm in diameter.
Under one millimeter?! Then that means The murder weapon wasn't a skewer or an ice pick.
It was needle-like.
Needle-like Oh! So it was you! You used to be a nurse, as I recall.
A nurse would be familiar with using syringes.
There must be some syringe needles less than 1 mm in diameter and over 5 cm in length! So what?! Now I got it! You killed her, Kaoru-san! D-Don't be stupid! How am I the killer?! That eye patch isn't for a stye! It was meant to keep one eye accustomed to the dark! When the lights went out, you removed that eye patch and used your left eye to commit the crime! In-law strife was probably your motive! Don't make these things up! Then please remove your eye patch.
That should be no problem, if you really have a stye.
Fine.
Kaoru-san! How'd you get that black eye?! My husband hit me.
Then you wore the eye patch to hide that bruise? Yes.
That's right.
Everyone here knows, but my mother-in-law dotes over her son Tatsuhiko, my husband.
She was always, "Tatsuhiko this, Tatsuhiko that" He even hit me last night because I talked bad about her.
Where is Tatsuhiko-san now? He left for Hawaii on a business trip this morning.
I wonder how he'll react when he finds out his mother's been killed.
I'd love to see it.
Y-You still aren't cleared of suspicion! You can see out of that eye! But the weapon wasn't a syringe needle.
There was almost no blood on Uemori-sensei's back.
Blood would've followed the syringe needle up to the skin after it broke through the capillaries! Why do you insist on making me the killer? Just so you know, I'm not the only one with a motive for killing her.
The other three have plenty of reason, too.
What?! Kaoru-san! Stop saying nonsense! Is it nonsense? You've been friends with her for over 30 years, but you surely hated her husband.
After all, she stole your lover 27 years ago and married him! You've stayed single ever since, and only came here so you could see your old lover, her husband and my father-in-law.
He died last year of an illness, though.
I guess you must've really loved him to keep coming to this class.
Oh! So that's why she He was such a nice, gentle man Nishitani-kun.
I hear she was going to cut off your financial support.
Because she found someone with more talent than you.
So you had to give up your dream of having your own restaurant.
Is that true, Nishitani-kun? Yuko-san.
You surely held a grudge because she stole your recipes.
No! I didn't! I saw it.
I saw you crying while arguing with her.
She coldly responded with, "If you don't like it, then surpass me.
" In other words, all four of you had reasons for killing Uemori-san.
Come to think of it Nishitani-san.
You massaged Uemori-sensei's shoulders.
Yes.
Meaning you must know about therapeutic points on the back.
I believe acupuncture needles are less than 1 mm in diameter.
But, Mouri-san.
Yuko-san and I couldn't find her in the dark, and I've never touched an acupuncture needle in my life.
Mouri-kun.
I've had acupuncture on occasion.
Those needles would be too thin.
They're so thin and weak that stabbing 5 cm in would be impossible.
Too thin, huh? Wait a minute.
Here's the blouse you asked me to mend.
A sewing set.
You're the only one with one, correct? What difference does that make? Matches the murder weapon perfectly! Get real! How would you pull it out if you stuck it all the way in?! Oh, right.
Sheesh Besides, people are surprisingly tough-skinned, and there's no way to grip a sewing needle for stabbing anyway.
Oh So that's out of the question? It's true that a sewing needle fits the murder weapon perfectly.
But a 5 cm stab wound wouldn't be possible.
Wait! A sewing needle Yeah! With that, you could stab someone! And, being able to find Uemori-sensei in the dark It would be easy with that, and not immediately obvious! So that's why that person made that mistake This is the men's room window, so it should be around here somewhere.
Here it is! Which means it contains Kazue-san.
It's possible that a sewing needle was the murder weapon, so we'll have to run a test for blood on them.
Do as you like.
There's no point, though.
It's also possible to hide a needle in your clothes, so we'll need to conduct body searches.
Eh?! Even that?! We have our rights! I found it! This is it! So that person really is the killer! I know who did it.
Now for the murder weapon.
If I were going to hide that weapon Ah! Inside there! That's quite a clever hiding place! Inspector Megure.
Oh, how'd it go? No blood was detected on anything in the sewing set.
I see.
Thank you.
Inspector! Did the body search turn up anything, Takagi-kun? Nishitani-san doesn't have a needle on him.
And the women? Nothing turned up.
Inspector.
Could you let Yuko-san and me go? As I mentioned before, neither of us could've found her in the dark.
That's true Inspector.
You must not let those two go yet.
Huh? Why not, Mouri-kun? Because I know who the killer is.
Say what?! You do, Dad?! W-Who's the killer?! The one who murdered Michi Uemori-san was you, Nishitani-san! What?! Mouri-san.
Weren't you listening just now? Yuko-san and I couldn't have There was a way to find Uemori-san, even in the darkness.
By wearing special contact lenses in advance.
Contact lenses? Yes.
He wore black, sunglass-like contact lenses.
When he first entered the classroom, he didn't have them in.
Nor when he snuck through the back entrance before then.
This is because they would've been inconvenient when setting up the ice trick in the electrical room.
He put the contacts in about 10 minutes before class began, in the bathroom.
Eh?! Then that's why he? Yes.
That's why when he ran into you in the hallway Ran-san! Sorry! My mistake! You look alike! The hallway here is rather dark, so he couldn't differentiate between you and Yuko-san.
But he wasn't clumsier than usual! That's because he's skilled and the classroom was quite bright.
But do such convenient contact lenses actually exist? No, not normally.
In Japan, contact lenses are pharmaceutical products, Visible Light Transmission so there's a specific standard for visible light transmission, so contact lenses as dark as sunglasses can't be sold.
The color contacts that were recently put on the market only have color around the lens; the middle is still transparent.
But lenses with color in any location can be specially ordered for use in things like TV dramas and commercials.
So they're not absolutely impossible to obtain.
In any event, Nishitani-san let his eyes grow accustomed to the dark, and the instant the lights went out, he quickly removed the contacts, opened the sliding door, approached Uemori-san, and stabbed her in the back! Mouri-kun! What was the murder weapon?! I believe the weapon was indeed a sewing needle.
A sewing needle? But you said yourself it wouldn't be easy to stab 5 cm with one, and it might get stuck if you're not careful! A thimble and some thread solve those problems.
A thimble and thread? A thimble? You mean the ring that's used when doing needlework? That's right.
Have a look at Nishitani-san's right index finger.
He used the ring as a thimble?! Yes.
He put a thread through the needle, and But I believe he burned the thread using his stove to be rid of it.
Hold on! That means the evidence is! Fear not, Inspector.
Conan! I found this behind the bathrooms! A contact lens case? Yeah! Nishitani-san threw it out the bathroom window after putting 'em in! And I found this one inside his cooking bowl! A contact lens Takagi-kun! Right! Inspector! I found the other lens! Nishitani-san.
Think you can you explain this for us? Is something wrong with wearing sunglass-like contacts? You should find the weapon before accusing someone of murder! But the weapon is in your belongings.
Inside your ballpoint pen.
Here it is! Nishitani-san! Are you still going to make excuses? I thought it was a great hiding place, too I lose, Mouri-san.
You truly are a great detective.
I got the contacts when I went to Europe last month for training.
I paid someone at a manufacturer to make them.
I figured Japanese contacts could've been traced.
And your motive? Was it because she was cutting off your financial support? There's that, but I felt bad that Yuko-san's recipes were being stolen.
So I wanted to enact my plan the night before her best-seller party.
Yuko-san.
You might not have realized it, but I've always I knew how you felt.
But I never wanted you to do this.
My goal was to improve myself and create perfect recipes that she couldn't help with Nishitani-san.
Your actions weren't based on love.
They were nothing but criminal actions resulting from selfishness!

Yeah! After what happened to Uemori-sensei, Sonoko decided to go to a different cooking classroom.
She asked if I wanted to go, too! French cooking again? Yeah, that's right! So, can I enroll, Dad? It costs the same as Uemori-sensei's place! The same? How much is that? These sardines are great! Japanese people love Japanese food! I guess you should forget about the cooking classroom It seems so.
Yes, yes! A bone! I guess I won't be eating any of Ran's French cooking for awhile.
