|List of episodes|
A woman, Fumie Ozawa, is found dead in her bathroom around 9 am, having appeared to have committed suicide by hanging herself with a thin wire, by her friend Etsuko Aikawa who claims it was murder.
The medical examiner puts the time of death between 6 and 8 pm the previous night. Kogoro investigates the scene and sees that she schedules a dentist appointment for the same day of her "suicide". Conan finds a powdered substance, sneaks away with a sample, and when asking a store clerk of it, she says it is katakuri starch, a thickner with sugar properties. When looking in to Ozawa's company financials, the police find a 30 million yen deficit that they believed she embezzled and her superior/boyfriend, Ryota Shimizu, who was off the same day she died and received an e-mail from Ozawa at 5:45 pm yesterday, may have a connection. Aikawa claims she treated Fumie like a surrogate daughter all her life and would do nothing to harm her when the police question her as a suspect. Later, Aikawa's alibi is in question when a delivery man saw her earlier than she stated. She states that she found the body earlier than she did, but after she left money for Ozawa before finding her, and was going to notify the police afterwords.
- This is the first case that came out after the creator, Gosho Aoyama, married Conan's voice actress, Minami Takayama on May 5, 2005.
- Ran is currently taking part in a Karate Tournament. Although Strategy Above the Depths is non-canon, she did win the gold medal at the Kanto Martial Arts Competition in that movie. Although that movie came out on April 09, 2005, and the original airing of this also non-canon case was on May 9, 2005, it could still be the very same competition.
- The day of the dentist appointment, and today in the day in question is May 9, and the original airdate was May 9, 2005.
- The calendar showed Mother's day as yesterday, and this case did indeed air the day after Mother's Day in 2005, which also means that this case aired on Monday.
