Isn't President Yamazaki the head of Yamazaki Development, the company you did a bodyguard job for during that blackmail case? What were you invited to today? She says she has a favor to ask of the nationally famous Kogoro Mouri! Welcome! Mouri-sama, yes? The president is expecting you! Shingo Aihara (53) Caretaker Please come in! Mouri-sama is here.
Right this way! Hello! Welcome, Mouri-san.
Hiromi Yamazaki (50) President of Yamazaki Development I'm sorry to call you all the way into the mountains like this.
Oh, I see you're as beautiful as ever! Oh, you're a flatterer.
Let me introduce you.
This is the Mayor of Iwami, Hachimaki-sama.
Hachibee Hachimaki (62) Mayor of Iwami City I'm Hachibee Hachimaki.
It's an honor to meet the distinguished Kogoro Mouri-san like this! It's a pleasure to meet you.
Eri Nakamura (32) Pres.
Yamazaki's Secretary I'm Nakamura, her secretary.
It's nice to meet you.
The pleasure's all mine.
I'm Aihara, the caretaker here.
If you need anything, just let me know.
Nice to meet you.
Now if you'll excuse me.
What's this model of? You know not to touch, Conan-kun! It's all right.
Mouri-san.
This is the Iwami Spa Resort we're planning.
Aside from the hot springs, it'll have a golf range, a tennis club, an arcade, and many other facilities! Our city's population is dwindling, so I've teamed up with President Yamazaki to build a spa resort to give it a shot in the arm! Tomorrow is the ground-breaking ceremony! And we'd like you to play a part in the advertising, by appearing in magazines and television commercials as a model.
Model in your commercials?! Like this, perhaps? You're getting too excited Let's set aside the business talk for now.
Aihara.
Prepare the early celebration.
Yes, I'll bring it right now! An afternoon with a rare feast and sake There's nothing better! Wild boar stew and fresh Iwami vegetables! They all share the simple flavors of this region! Yes, local cuisine will be one of the resort's attractions! It's coming from your upstairs office.
Pardon me a moment.
Oh, yes! Mayor! Why don't you let Mouri-san try the specialties? Oh, that? Leave it to me! Hey! Aihara-kun! Bring you-know-what out! What's he doing? What are "the specialties"? You'll just have to wait and see! Aihara-kun! Oh, you're on the phone? Uhh, please send over one case of beer and juice! I'm taking you-know-what.
Oh, okay! Now these are the pride of our town! W-What are they? Newt and wasp sake! They're incredibly revitalizing! Well, drink up! O-Okay I think I've had too much to drink.
I need some fresh air.
Are you all right? Y-Yes, I think so.
It was such nice weather earlier, too Mountain weather does change quickly.
Like they say, a woman's heart is as fickle as autumn weather.
T-That was President Yamazaki! Call the police and a doctor! Right! A balloon An insecticide spray? It's too late.
Madam! This is horrible! Umm, are you the famous detective, Kogoro Mouri-san? Yes.
I'm Suzuki, a resident police officer.
This is Dr.
Sakurai, who runs a clinic in town.
Thanks for coming.
Well, I leave the rest to you.
I'm going to have a look at her room.
This door locks automatically, you know.
I know that! Mouri-san! I have a spare key! It smells like insecticide! It appears it was locked from the inside.
It appears she broke the window to get onto the balcony, and then she fell over when the rail she was leaning on broke.
But why? Mouri-san.
Dr.
Sakurai says she died of head injuries when she fell.
This office has an automatic lock, and all upstairs windows were locked from the inside.
It'd be impossible to sneak past us on the first floor to go upstairs.
And sneaking in via the chimney would also be impossible.
So it was a completely locked room This is—! Say, officer! This is a bee, right? That's a yellowjacket wasp.
Come to think of it, Dr.
Sakurai did find sting marks on her head.
Sting marks? Are wasps common in this area? Yes.
Come to think of it, wasn't she afraid of wasps, Nakamura-san? Yes.
She's from here, and she'd had a traumatic childhood experience.
Some wasps stung her in the sixth grade, and Aihara-san saved her on the verge of death.
She said she hired him to take care of the mansion because she owed him her life Yes.
That's right.
I always had bug spray on hand to keep wasps from coming inside.
There've been many wasp-related incidents so far this year.
I've figured out the killer! It was the wasps that killed her, no question about it! Listen.
President Yamazaki must've been attacked by wasps that entered through that fireplace.
She tried using the nearby bug spray, but in her panic, she went through the window and onto the balcony.
Then, as luck would have it, the handrail broke and she fell over.
In other words, this was an accident.
But why did she escape through the window and not the door? When people panic, they lose the ability to make good judgments.
What's this sticky stuff?! This is—! This might not have been an accident! It's possible it was a murder plotted by one of these people! Protective clothing for handling wasps! These two bottles were used recently.
Ether and sulfuric acid?! Helium? Why is this here? Wait a minute! As I recall, it went downstream! Fishing line and a ripped plastic bag! And this black dirt! The rain cap that should be on this chimney is gone.
Some of the soot inside it has been rubbed off.
Cellophane tape?! A hole in the floor? Ah! Now I see how the trick worked! That person is the killer! Conan-kun! Where are you? Where'd that runt disappear to?! What is it? You always worry us when you suddenly disappear! Quit scampering around! Come with us! Hold on.
Have a nap and leave the rest to me, old guy.
What the—? Dad! What was that sound?! What was that?! What happened?! I've figured it out, everyone.
This was a murder.
It wasn't an accident?! Why do you say that now? To catch the killer off guard.
I wanted time to gather proof, you see.
The person responsible murdered President Yamazaki and made it look like an accident.
What proof do you have to—? Have a look at the inside doorknob.
What about it? Nothing seems out of the ordinary Underneath the connecting part.
This is—! Yes.
Honey.
If wasps attacked you inside, you would normally run out the door.
But there was a bunch of wasps on the honey-covered doorknob, so President Yamazaki ran in the opposite direction, to the window.
The rail on the balcony was quite corroded.
It had been corroded in advance using sulfuric acid.
But what about the wasps? Yes.
The wasps were planned too.
Have a look at the ceiling behind you.
Is that the balloon that—? Yes.
It's the balloon you and Conan saw on your way down to the river.
It got stuck to a tree branch downstream.
Ran.
Check the plastic bag.
Okay.
A wasp! The killer put wasps into the bag attached to the balloon and placed it in the chimney.
They were probably gathered after spraying them with ether.
Aihara-san.
I found a beekeeper outfit that smelled of ether in the shed.
Most everyone in this area has one.
Then what are the helium tanks in the shed for? We made balloons for kids at the summer festival.
They're what's left over.
I wonder.
There were three tanks.
Are you sure you didn't do a lot of test flights of a balloon with a bag attached instead? What's that supposed to mean? What are you trying to say?! Only the caretaker here could have set all this up! Yes! You're the killer, Aihara-san! W-What are you talking about?! I was in the living room when she fell! I was with all of you! How could I have killed her?! First, to temporarily keep the balloon inside the chimney, you tied fishing line to it, led it to the downstairs kitchen through a small hole in the floor by the fireplace, and tied it to a nail.
You also stuck fishing line to a piece of tape on the bag and led it to the kitchen as well.
Everything was then ready to go.
The phone rang, and President Yamazaki went to the upstairs office.
At the same time, you were on the phone.
Yes.
You had called her upstairs office to get her into the room.
After confirming that she had picked up the receiver, you pulled a thread leading into the kitchen.
The tape covering a pre-made rip in the bag came off and sent the wasps flying out.
The balloon blocked the chimney's top, so they flew into the room.
The agitated wasps then attacked President Yamazaki.
While spraying the insecticide, she headed for the door.
But she was unable to open it.
Because it was crawling with wasps.
With no other choice, she ran around the room, broke the window, and leapt onto the balcony.
She leaned against the rail and aimed the spray at the wasps, but the rail broke and she fell over.
After we rushed outside, you quickly returned to the kitchen and undid the other thread.
And so the balloon went flying out of the chimney.
That's what Ran and Conan happened to see.
But something didn't go as planned.
The balloon was supposed to fly far off into the distance, but the light rain and wind unfortunately got it stuck in a tree.
I found the tape! And there is a hole in the floor! That doesn't prove anything! Aihara-san.
Could you show us the towel on your hip? Towel?! W-What about it?! The doorknob must've been entirely covered in honey.
Are you sure you didn't wipe it away with your towel? There is honey on it! And one more thing.
Please take out what's in your right pants pocket.
What's the matter? Show it to us.
That's the very same thread that undid the tape on the plastic bag.
The mayor and Conan had barged in just then, so you hastily stuffed it into your pocket.
It appears you didn't have time to dispose of the evidence.
That, or you lowered your guard when it was deemed an accident.
Making me the caretaker because I saved her life was nice and all, but I wound up like a worker bee slaving away for the queen bee.
But she said she'd make me manager of the spa resort, so I tried so hard to endure it! But it was a lie.
A big, fat lie.
I couldn't stand it anymore.
I wanted to ruin tomorrow's ground-breaking ceremony.
So I had to do it today.
