Chiba's Difficult UFO Case (千葉のUFO難事件 Chiba no Yūfō Nanjiken) is the 847th and 848th episode of the Detective Conan anime.
A girl from Haido Senior High School comes to Kogoro's office to report a sighting of an alien at Haido Park. Conan recalls that this is the same place where the incidents of Jodie's Memories and the Cherry Blossom Viewing Trap happened. He also recalls that if Haibara and Mary look alike, they can be related. That can then mean Haibara and Akai Shuichi are also related. Kogoro, Conan, and Ran get to the school, and they see a big piece of concrete with footsteps on it. Officer Chiba later arrives and tells them there was a murder here and that a man was caught in it. It is said that the man was killed by an alien who came out from an flying UFO and fled just after.

|Cause of death:
|One morning, Nakatsu and Kuchiki were both found by construction workers lying side by side inside a patch of hardening concrete. Forensics found that Nakatsu was suffocated by having his breathing cut off, but no murder weapon was found. Upon being questioned, Kuchiki has claimed that Nakatsu was actually killed by an alien hovering above them. Some credibility for this tale is lent by the fact that the only footprints found in the concrete were Nakatsu's and Kuchiki's.
