Murder

EP419-420 Case.jpg

Location: Inome Cave
Victim: Koji Wanibuchi
Age: 35 years old
Cause of death: Stab wound from behind
Suspects: Eiko Ezumi, Ryosuke Fukuma, Takehiko Fujie, and Kazuya Ishitobi

According to Ran, these murder reminds of 'The Extermination of the Eight-Headed Serpent'. It's a legend about Susano's admirable act. There once was a pitiable princess who had been taken by the Eight-Headed Serpent against her will. Then the admirable Susano appeared and killed the Eight-Headed Serpent, saving the princess. This case reminded Ran of this story because he also obtained the serpent's sword. However, according to Kogoro, Susano's act may have been heroic, but their case's culprit isn't. He may have coincidentally saved Eiko from being stuck in a doomed marriage, but he's no more than a robber and a murderer. Ran already knows that much. She was just saying this is almost like the extermination of that serpent.

The police have four suspects, two of whom are Eiko and Fukuma, and other two are Fujie and Ishitobi. Eiko and Fukuma's alibis don't set right with Conan who takes Ran to investigate the alibis.

Part 2[edit]

Conan proves that Eiko and Fukuma's alibis were to protect each other. Fukuma finds Eiko's pendant at the crime scene and thinks it was her and Eiko thought it was Fukuma from his alibi that he was where she really was, the train station, but she didn't see him. Then it turns out that Fujie went to Eiko's home to convince Wanibuchi to spare his businesses. Eiko realizes that her pendant vanished that same night. Ishitobi's alibi checks out when the police discover that he is charged with a D.U.I. (Driving Under the Influence).
