The Real Culprit's Scream (真犯人の叫び声 Shinhan'nin no sakebigoe?) is the 899th episode of the Detective Conan anime.




Ayano Saeki and Mifuyu Morita work together in the bakery. Morita invites Saeki to hang-out in her apartment. While Saeki is standing at her door, she hears Morita screaming at her boyfriend Atsushi Tabata. When she enters with the spare key, Mifuyu is lying down on the floor having been stabbed in the chest apparently. There are footprints leading to the balcony. Mifuyu tells Saeki to run for her life saying that her boyfriend is still in the apartment.



Location: Mifuyu Morita's apartment
Victim: Mifuyu Morita
Age: 25 years old
Cause of death: Stab wound
Suspects: Atsushi Tabata
Ayano found her friend stabbed in her bedroom, with a bloodstained knife lying next to her.

While running on the street to get help, Saeki bumps into Kogoro and Conan who apparently notice something strange with her and the blood on her shoulder. She explains that her friend has been stabbed. Saeki leads them to Mifuyu's apartment where they find the knife used for stabbing the victim lying on her floor but there is no body lying around. Conan notices the footsteps are dry which is strange because it hasn't been much time since the incident occurred. The police are called. Kogoro notices a suitcase missing and speculates that the culprit ran with her body in the suitcase. Later they go to the boyfriend's house. Saeki reveals that Atsushi was a fraud and had extracted 10 million yen from the victim. For this reason, Mifuyu was going to sue him.

They find blood outside Atsushi's house and drag marks of the suitcase inside which the body was carried. On entering the house, they find Atsushi poisoned on the table. Beside him is a letter that reads: "I'm going to meet Mifuyu".

Murder or Suicide?


Location: Atsushi Tabata's house
Victim: Atsushi Tabata
Age: 35 years old
Cause of death: Poison
Suspects: Ayano Saeki
Atsushi is found lying dead, head on table, with a suicide note and a coffee cup next to him, speculated to be the one used to administer the poison.

Kogoro concludes that Atsushi felt guilty after killing Mifuyu so he committed suicide. They also find the suitcase used for carrying Mifuyu in another room. This is confirmed by a strand of hair inside it. Kogoro leaves the case to the Inspector as solved and they set out to search for the victim's dumped body.


  • Resolution


    • The flight the culprit is taking is in fact a real Flight called Japanese Airlines Flight 293 (JAL JL 293), connecting Tokyo (Haneda Airport) to Ube, Yamaguchi (Ube Airport).
