Situation[edit]

In Angel City Hotel, the photographer named Ryuuichi Yanase won the 35th Yomikiri Photography Award in the award ceremony and he received a brand new watch. He was nominated by the crime news department. It also shows Yanase's photographs of incidents on the slideshow.

After the award ceremony, Kogoro gave his business card to Yanase and Yanase is glad to meet the famous detective in person. Yanase also gave his business card to Kogoro. He captures wonderful pictures by thanking to the gods. Until sudden, a man named Atsushi Nakai gave the business card to Kogoro and he's a newspaper reporter. Yanase does not like Nakai at all whenever he's near to him. Nakai just got the white powder from his pocket and blows at Yanase with white powder. Yanase told Nakai to leave him alone and fled. The white powder he just blew is lime.

At the Mouri Detective Agency, the phone rings and Conan answers it. It's Nakai and he wants to talk to Kogoro Mouri because his life is on the line. Conan tries to wake Kogoro up while he's sleeping but he doesn't want to get up. Conan doesn't have a choice so he'll just use the voice changing bowtie to use Kogoro's voice while talking to Nakai on the phone. When Conan's back on the phone, he asks Nakai what's about his life being in danger. Nakai claims that someone is after his life and wants Kogoro to investigate about it. Suddenly, the culprit hits Nakai with the ashtray and hangs up the phone. Conan got Nakai's business card from Kogoro's inside coat pocket and took a ride on a taxi. Meanwhile in Nakai's apartment, the culprit turned the water on and left.

When Conan arrived at the apartment, Nakai crashes through the window and fell to his death while he's on fire.

Accident?

EP106 Case.jpg

Location: Atsushi Nakai's apartment
Victim: Atsushi Nakai
Age: 38 years old
Cause of death: Burning and fell from apartment
Suspects: Ryuuichi Yanase
Yanase takes photo from fell burning Nakai.

While he's falling, Conan sees Yanase taking pictures of the incident from the highway.

The next day, all the newspapers have pictures of Nakai when he's on fire falling to his death taken by Yanase. He tells to the news reporters that it was just a coincidence and thanks to the gods.

Ran is reading the today's article about Yanase and she thinks he certainly has exceptional luck as a crime scene photographer. But whatever he claims, it's too much of a coincidence. When Kogoro came, he reveals that Nakai had a scar on his head, but the lab came to the conclusion that because he was drunk. He lost his balance, fell, and hit his head. The police think it's an unfortunate accident. Conan asks about the cause of fire and Kogoro doesn't know the details but it apparently started in the kitchen sink.

Conan went back to Nakai's apartment and investigates. Last night, the phone call for Kogoro came at 10:30 pm. By the time he rushed to the apartment by taking a taxi ride, it was 10:50. Judging by the progress of the fire, Conan can safely concluded that the fire started as soon as the phone went dead. Yanase was taking pictures from the bridge to the apartment. Without the car, it would be impossible to get up there. Suddenly, Conan notice the entrance for the highway bus. Conan went to the road bridge and sees through the window which is directly across from Nakai's apartment. It is the perfect spot to take pictures. Yanase couldn't have gotten to the road bridge purely by luck. What's more, it takes no more than three minutes to get to the highway from the incident. Conan found some white powder on his sleeve and it's lime. The lime could be the connection about the fire that started in the kitchen sink.

Later, Conan bought a magazine article about the incident of Nakai's death. At the playground, he was looking at the picture of Nakai crashing through the window. He found something and went to visit at Professor Agasa's house. Conan wants Agasa to analyze the picture and he points to the mirror in the background of Nakai crashing through the window. Agasa puts the magazine article on the scanner and imports the picture of Nakai crashing through the window on his computer screen. He zooms in to the kitchen reflected in the mirror. When he zooms in to the kitchen sink, it's so pixelated and it's not clear enough. Agasa fixes it and he finally made the picture more sharp and clear. There's a broken watch on the kitchen counter and Conan has no doubt that it was murder which he knows who did it. Agasa mentions that Yanase will be on tv tomorrow and he was advertised in a commercial. Yanase is going to invite Kogoro as his first guest to his show. This could be a chance for Conan and he has a pretty good idea.

The next day at Nichiuri TV, Yanase thanks Kogoro for coming to his show as his first guest. When they shake hands, the pink paper fell out of Yanase's pocket. The pink paper is actually a police notification and it's because last time when he saw the smoke, he subconsciously increased speed and got caught by the surveillance camera. Conan went to the phone and called Inspector Megure. Kogoro is getting ready to the show and Conan tells him that there's dirt on his collar and he's going to brush it off which he actually puts the button speaker on him.
