|Asada's Law Office
|55 years old
|Kogoro is asked by Asada to investigate a break-in and theft in his law office. The object of the robbery was the altered last will of Karahashi who, instead of favoring his next of kin, as previously intended, left his entire vast fortune to his lover and long-time secretary.
|Asada's Law Office
|While going shopping for new video games with his fellow Detective Boys, Conan noticed the burglary into Asada's office and decided to investigate on his own. He caught the culprit breaking the safe open, but was discovered, kicked into unconsciousness, and taken away.
After Conan regains consciousness, he finds himself in a dark and cramped place he uses his detective to badge to call the others for help. He initially believed that he was stashed beneath a coffin, as a result Ran and the kids rush to a crematorium just in time before President Karahashi is cremated. However when they check the coffin Conan is no where to be found.
Conan eventually deduces that he is actually inside a hearse, he looks around and finds the altered last will had been stashed away with him. He guides the others as best as he can in the hopes that they find him, as the hearse is set to be demolished as a car crusher. Eventually the others locate him just in time to witness the hearse being crushed, and apparently Conan along with it.
They are all in shock, but then Conan emerges unscathed from wreckage much to their relief. A flashback reveals that in the last few moments he managed to escape because the door was weakened when the hearse was being crushed. Using his super kick shoes he kicks the doors off and escapes at the last second before the hearse is completely crushed.
|Accidental Homicide (Crushing)
|Left to be crushed
|The kidnapper enclosed Conan in a box inside an unused hearse in order to secure the material witness and the altered testament, to be released after the original testament's purpose had been executed and thus made legally valid. However, unknown to the culprit, the hearse in question (with the box inside) was assigned to be scrapped and is driven to the Kuriniji Scrapyard. Fortunately, just before the car is compressed, the box cracks, allowing Conan to break out with his power-kick shoes.
- In the New Year Greeting to the viewers, Mistuhiko says that last year, Conan and Ichikawa Ebizo XI were the ones to do the New Year Greeting. This is a reference to Conan and Ebizo's Kabuki Jūhachiban Mystery.
- Conan's phone says Ony instead of Sony.
- When Haibara looks up Beika City Crematoriums, on the internet it shows Glegle instead of Google.
- There is a mistake in the first episode. In the earlier scene, Mitsuyo has the white and black shoes but Kozo's feet does not. Later all three siblings have on the white and black shoes. This is an important detail because the culprit wore this distinctive pair of shoes in Conan's flashback of him being kidnapped.
- The sunset painting in Mitsuyo's house is from Wakamatsu villa in The Design of Poison and Mirage and Kataoka household in The Secret of the Statue of Kogoro Mouri, while the one about flowers in Karahashi Group's lobby reappears in Mori family's former apartment from Memories from Sakura Class and in the house from Picking Wild Plants and Clovers.
