Where were you? That took a long time.
I got stuck at the convenience store.
Mina Aoshima (24) Haido Dept.
Store Clerk I made sure to buy everything you asked for, Sis! Bath detergents, tape, and beer! Aoshima Masayo (26) Beika Bank Employee Thanks.
I forgot to buy bath detergent, and the convenience store by my apartment is being remodeled.
But are you really taking the video tape with that idol show on it? Don't be like that.
I moved out of here for your sake.
That seems like a lot of work.
Can I help? Could you cut some strips of tape and stick them along the table? Sorry for suddenly coming over like this and having you go shopping and help me pack.
Don't be silly.
It's no problem.
Oh, I should thank you! Kenji-san can't wait for tomorrow's concert! Oh, right! I forgot! Before we pack we have to make a toast to my happiness-filled little sister! Oh, we don't have to do that! No, no! I've been so busy since you announced you were getting married that I haven't gotten to celebrate it properly! So this is your sister's meager little celebration! Please accept it.
Oh, my gorgeous Princess Yoko! Your beauty is a crime! Have a look at these roses I've brought for you! They're all bright red after being enamored by you! Get it?! I think that stupid look is more of a crime.
Yes.
I guess kids can't understand stylish, grownup lines like that! Yeah, real stylish He seems to be in a good mood Yeah! Because Yoko Okino-chan is having a concert tonight! Shouldn't we go, Dad? It'll be really crowded if we don't go soon! Don't worry! If we show them the autographed tickets Yoko-chan gave us, they'll let us go in the back— Huh? What's wrong, Dad?! There's a hole here! Don't tell me you dropped your ticket?! Not there! Not there! Not there! Where did my Yoko-chan go?! What about the bathroom? You ran in there right when we got here.
That has to be it! The bathroom! The bathroom! That has to be it! Well? Did you find it? Nope.
Zilch.
Don't worry! I'm sure they'll let us in if we explain the situation! Don't be dumb! I can't let myself look stupid when I give her a bouquet! Wait.
As I recall, you have midterms next week, right? Yeah.
Then give me your ticket so you can go home and study! Forget it! I know! Let's say it was actually Come on, Dad.
Yes, yes! Let's say that Conan dropped his ticket and— Knock that off! I'm sorry! What do you mean you can't come, Kenji?! A cold?! You'll get over it at the concert! Do you know how hard it was getting tickets to Yoko Okino's concert?! Just get over here! My sister and I planned on taking your car there! Eh?! You can't?! Wait, Kenji! Kenji?! Urgh! You useless jerk! U-Uhh - Umm - Yes?! Do you have an extra ticket for Yoko Okino-chan's concert tonight? Y-Yes In that case, might you let me have it for a small sum? Hold on, Dad! That's a waste! They'll let you in if you just explain! Quiet! A man's pride can't be exchanged for money! You're so vain Uncle! You didn't lose your ticket in the car, either.
O-Oh.
So, would you be willing to sell it to me? No, no, you appear troubled, so you can have it for free.
For free? For f-free?! Really?! Yes! In exchange, could I ask one favor of you? Yes! Anything at all! What's with him? I thought he was acting on a man's pride, but I guess it didn't matter.
I'm sorry to ask you to do this.
No, it's no problem! We're just going to pick up your sister! Good thing you rented this car, huh? Yeah! It's lucky I had to take a trip for work this morning! But what could've gotten into them? They couldn't wait for tonight's concert, but then didn't show up.
Did you try calling her? Yes.
But she won't answer.
And the answering machine isn't on.
I just hope nothing strange has happened Strange? My sister's been acting strange lately.
She's been depressed ever since announcing she was getting married.
Sometimes she'll cry for no reason.
That's why I invited her to tonight's concert! To cheer her up! Say, it's had me curious this whole time.
That bandana around your head is it? Oh! This is a limited edition bandana that came with Yoko-chan's album that was released yesterday! So it was Yoko-chan's! It's amazing you can get things like that! You're so lucky! Eh? You're fans, but you haven't bought it?! It comes with a key holder, too! Wow! She gives us all her CDs in person, so we don't get extras Eh?! In person?! You know Yoko-chan?! Yes, we kinda met during a case C-Case? Yeah, my name is Kogoro Mouri.
I'm a detective.
Is something the matter? N-No! I just recognized that name! You're so famous that I No, I'm not that famous! Oh? A house? Your little sister lives here alone? No, I lived here with her until just last week.
I moved out so her fiancé can move in with her next month.
Her shoes are here.
She must still be asleep.
I'll go get her.
You can relax in the living room.
Oh, but the time We'll only be a minute! R-Right Come on, now.
It'll take an hour to get there! Now, now! Don't be in such a rush! Whoa! What is this?! The room is filled with idol posters! Yoko-chan, Asuka Anzai, Two-Mix, Terumi Hoshino Amazing! They even have Lex, and they disbanded! It's also amazing you know so much about this stuff Masayo-san certainly loves idols! Her sister must've had it rough, putting up with this.
I think they both like idols.
See? There are two of everything, even photo books and CDs! And they have their names on them.
But why didn't Masayo-san take them when she moved? There's probably so much that she couldn't take it all at once.
See? Look at all these moving boxes.
Still W-What's that?! Mina! Mina! - Uncle! - Yeah! I know you're in there! What's wrong?! Mina! "Goodbye" Mina! Mina! W-What's that?! Don't tell me it's locked from the inside?! No, there's no lock on this door! I think it's been taped shut from the inside! Alright! Let's all bust it open! Ready, go! Mina S-Suicide? Ran! The police! Call the police! Right! M-My sister Will she live?! I'm sorry, but she's gone This can't be happening! The door and the window were both taped shut! And on the floor are two open bottles of different bath detergents! Maybe it was a suicide? But the cuts on her wrists bother me! No, it's not! This wasn't a suicide! It was a murder! But if that's the case, I don't get how it was done How did the killer leave the room?! How could someone leave this completely sealed space?! The deceased is Mina Aoshima-san, age 24.
The cause of death was blood loss stemming from the severance of her ulnar artery caused by cuts to her left wrist.
And it was you, her sister, who found her, Masayo-san? Y-Yes.
And, at the scene just by coincidence yet again was I, Kogoro Mouri! Inspector Megure.
The truth is, Masayo-san had asked me to pick Mina-san up in my car.
We went into the bathroom when we noticed something was strange.
By which you mean the tape on this window and door? Yes.
There was tape all over the inside, so the room was sealed off.
There's no doubt it was a suicide, though.
Still, why would someone slitting their wrist to commit suicide need to seal off this room? It's probably because mixing chlorine and acid-based detergents produces a poisonous chlorine gas.
She sealed the room so the gas wouldn't leak out.
But Mouri-kun.
These are both chlorine-based.
Besides, chlorine gas isn't bad enough to seal the room Inspector.
The late Mina-san wasn't a pro like us.
She wouldn't have known the strength of chlorine gas.
Even so I also believe she was in a very confused state before killing herself! In short, this is what happened.
To commit suicide, she prepared two types of bathroom detergent and sealed off this room.
But when she tried to produce the gas, she realized she had bought the wrong detergents.
With no other choice, she cut her wrist with a razor in the room and left the cuts in the warm water to kill herself.
Inspector.
Take a look at this.
I found this receipt in the living room.
Mina-san purchased two bath detergents and tape at a convenience store last night.
It's proof she decided to commit suicide and prepared hastily.
Hey! Takagi-kun! Yes, sir? Go confirm this at the convenience store.
Understood! The roll of tape was found at the bottom of the bath, so this situation is plausible if Mina-san was acting hastily But she hurried too much! C-Conan-kun! This lady's wrist is cut in rushed zig-zags! S-So it is! Most hesitant cuts made by people committing suicide are parallel.
They almost never crisscross like this.
If I didn't know better, I'd say— It just happened that way.
It just shows how confused she was at the time.
Oh, geez But would someone like her clean up? Clean up? See? Look at this blood! It suddenly stops at the edge! That means she cleaned up the blood after it went flying, right? You're so stupid! Nobody committing suicide would do that! Then why does it suddenly stop? Well Because When the blood sprayed, there was something here, or Or someone was next to her when she cut her wrist.
Right? Inspector.
If I didn't know better, I'd say Yes, it may've been a murder.
Could it have been the tape? The tape was at the bottom of the bathtub, right? Ah! If the tape was on the edge of the tub and it fell when she cut her wrist it would all fit! Thank you! You've helped solve the mystery! It was nothing Inspector Megure.
It appears only Mina-san's fingerprints are on the tape.
Prints from both index fingers and thumbs show up clearly.
I see.
So we can probably assume this "Goodbye" was her dying message.
Meaning it was a suicide Of course it was.
This bathroom was completely sealed off! Oh no! I completely forgot! F-Forgot what, Mouri-kun?! Masayo-san.
Y-Yes?! As I recall, you said this then "Then"? You said I could have a ticket to Yoko Okino-chan's concert tonight! Huh? Stop that, Dad! This isn't the time Come on! We can at least catch the finale if we go now! I'll go get it.
I think my sister put them all in the living room.
Thanks! Say.
These boxes have bend marks.
Did you put them together before? Y-Yes! I had so many things to take that I decided to get them later! Oh! So that's why you had your sister help you then? After all, the edges of that table are all sticky! It got left behind by pieces of tape, right? Having someone line up pieces of tape makes packing a cinch, huh? Conan-kun! Where are you? That damn kid.
Every single time! Conan-kun! L-Little boy! Your sister is calling you! Conan-kun! You're right! I better go! There's no point wiping away the tape marks.
The examiner touched them and photographed them after I told him.
Here you are! I'm sorry for the trouble! Bye-bye, lady! Bye-bye! Oh, Conan-kun! You know not to scamper around! There's no question about it.
Conan! Yes.
Mina-san's killer was Masayo-san! "Goodbye" What I don't get is how she escaped the room sealed with tape! And what's this strange feeling that's been bugging me?

She was murdered.
