Situation[edit]

The Detective Boys are walking to a beauty salon, because Ayumi wants to get a haircut from her favorite hairdresser. However, they see her hairdresser, Mika Mitsui, arguing with the owner of the salon, Midori Goto, an argument that gets heated. Mitsui wants to leave the salon, and join a different one. However, the owner keeps begging for her to stay, because she believes that the hairdresser is the best one in the salon. Mitsui tells Ayumi that even though she is leaving the salon, that she can still get her hair done anytime she wants. She tells Ayumi to visit her apartment on Saturday morning, to get her hair done. The next Saturday, the Detective Boys go to the hairdresser's apartment, but find that she has been murdered.

The hairdresser is found dead by strangulation. The murder weapon is not found at the scene of the crime.

Inspector Megure, Detective Takagi, and Officer Tome visit the apartment to investigate. She had been strangled, and a piece of blue plastic was found in her fingernail. Also, two pieces of dry cleaning were found, and one of the pieces of dry cleaning was missing its wire hanger. After the brief investigation, the owner of the salon is invited to identify the body. Conan notices her looking suspicious, and also notices that she keeps looking at the garbage in the apartment, as well as outside of the apartment. He also notices she has a large bandage on her hand. Conan deduces that the missing coat hanger is the murder weapon, and notifies the police. Megure and Conan both believe that the owner of the salon is the murderer, however, they cannot find the murder weapon.
