Location: Orion Planning
Victim: Fujihiko Takahata
Cause of death: Fell from the sixth floor of the building
Suspects: Nanae Sunagawa and Toshio Higashiyama

The police are called to the scene and enter Takahata's office discovering a typed suicide note. Conan notices the window is open, a dry spot over the ledge of the window, and a piece of a theatrical property was found on the body and gives Kogoro hints allowing him to deduce Takahata's death. He reveals the prop is the one used in fictional children's show where when shot with a laser gun, deflates. The prop was used to keep Takahata's inert body from falling out the window, and was deflated resulting in his death and allowing the culprit to establish an alibi.


  • Resolution


    • This is the first screenplay that Koujin Ochi wrote under his pseudonym, Chiko Uonji.
      • This name comes from the reorder of his real name's romanji: Ochi KoujinUonji Chiko.
    • The layout of the building in this episode is similar to Koujin Ochi's other work, A Cursed Mask Coldly Laughs.
