Murder

EP540-541a Case 1.jpg

Location: Soki Forest
Victim: Ryozo Gamo
Age: 70 years old
Cause of death: Hanging
Suspects: Kyosuke Arai and Sayuri Tokomae
After a call from Gamo that he lost hope in Kogoro for finding witness to confirm his alibi, Gamo was found hanged at the park the next day. Evidences point toward Arai, Gamo's nephew for being the murderer. Is he the murderer? Or could it be that Sayuri Tokomae, the befuddling woman that wants to be Kogoro's client but was ravished by Gamo?

The police suspect it to be suicide but Kogoro reveals it is a murder, as Gamo could have killed himself at home if he wanted to. After interrogating Gamo's nephew, Kyosuke Arai, Kogoro returns home to find news reporters who question Kogoro about the suicide revealed to be murder. The next day, Kogoro heads to the horse track and meets up with his old friend, Isao Takeoka, the detective who falsely accused Gamo of a crime five years ago. They work together and investigate Ryozo's ties and end up at his nephew's house. They interrogate Arai and reveal his motive for the murder would be the inheritance. The next day, Arai is found in his house hanged and Kogoro decides to close his detective agency by removing its sign.

Part 2[edit]

The police continue their search for the suspect of the murder. After much convincing by Ran, Eri comes to comfort her depressed husband, much to the chagrin of the earlier client, Sayuri Tokomae. This display of affection from Eri towards her husband leads to Tokomae charging into the office and knocking the lawyer away. Claiming that Kogoro promised to take up her case, the love-smitten Tokomae drags Kogoro out of the building and off to the park where he is forced to go jogging with her. As Kogoro realizes that she is yet another person who benefited from Gamo's death, a trio of masked robbers attempt to mug Tokomae.
