Situation[edit]

Part 1[edit]

Kogoro goes undercover at Beika Sport Center: stalking a man named Shoichiro Hitomi who is negotiating with a rich man by the swimming pool. After the negotiation failed, the man enters the sport club's restroom while Kogoro receives a call from Ran and Conan. The two informs him that since he won't be back for the lunch, they decide to go and have "cheap and unlimited buffet" by themselves at Viking which causes Kogoro's stomach to growl. At the same time, the target exits the restroom with a serious expression, worrying Kogoro. He follows Mr.Hitomi to Beika Hotel and witnesses him calling someone with a payphone. However, he runs into Ran and Conan who informs him that they are having lunch at the hotel. The three spies on Mr.Hitomi who glances at the reception when a young woman asks the employee if he has a package from a man named Manabu Anzai. Later, as Ran and Conan are eating in the restaurant, they witness Mr.Hitomi falling off the building.

Kogoro quickly followed him to the stairway and witnessed him forced his way into Minamizato's room and attacked her.

Suspects: Shoichiro Hitomi
Minamizato was attacked by Hitomi shortly before the latter fell to death.

Megure interrogates Minamizawa who denies having any connection with her attacker/the victim. They finds out that the last person who made call with the victim was his sister-in-law, Kanako, at 11:20 AM. Afterward, Minamizawa asks the group to leave. At the lobby, Conan points out that despite having a mobile phone, the victim was using the payphone in the hotel prior to the accident. As they're conversing, Megure arrives and informs the three of the death of Hitomi's twin brother at Haido Mansion.

Murder

EP364-365c Case.jpg

Location: Haido Mansion
Victim: Takehiko Hitomi
Age: 45 years old
Time: 12:15 AM
Cause of death: Blunt force trauma with wrench
Suspects: Kaoru Minamizato and Kanako Hitomi
Around the same time of Hitomi's death, his twin brother Takehiko was murdered.

Kogoro reveals that the person who hired him was Takehiko Hitomi as he suspected that his twin brother was impersonating as him and engaging illegal businesses. He also found out that the man had a huge amount of debt. Although they think that the two case are separated, they decide to head to the site of murder. The crime scene show that the murderer broke in through the window to rob the house, and that the house key is a special one that cannot be duplicated easily. They interrogates Kanako, who informs them that she was at Beika Town before returning home and witness her husband murdered. Kanako reveals that she gave her brother-in-law the spare key and her husband's phone number as she wants them to reconcile after the two fought due to their father's will of leaving the company to Takehiko. She also reveals that she was called to the Beika Station by Shoichiro at 12:30 AM but he never came. From the information, they conclude that the two cases are not connected and are just synchronicity. However, Conan still has doubt about the attempted murder of Minamizato and her unknown connection with the two victims.

Part 2[edit]

Recalling that Minamizato was at the lobby asking about a package from Anzai, the three heads to her room to question about the man's identity when a man in sunglasses attempting to murder her with an ash tray.

Attempted Murder

EP364-365d Case.jpg

Location: Beika Hotel - Room 1015
Victim: Kaoru Minamizato
Age: 25 years old
Attack Types: Bashing
Suspects: Manabu Anzai
Minamizato is almost murdered by a man in sunglasses but is saved due to Kogoro, Ran, and Conan's intervention. Unfortunately, Ran's karate misses the man and knocks out Kogoro instead. The man uses the commotion to kick Ran onto Conan before escaping.

At the hospital, Minamizato reveals that she was in a relationship with Anzai and he proposed her. However, she lost all contact with him half a year ago after giving him a huge amount of cashes and came to Beika to find out about his whereabouts after some people told her that he was last seen in Tokyo. Kogoro concludes that the man must be a gold digger who is only after her money. Also, the picture of Anzai matches with the man Kogoro spotted in the Sport Center where he tailed Shoichiro, which the fitness instructor reveals that the man also went under alias Tanizaki. They also witness him with another woman who is clearly targeted by him for her money. With this revelation, Conan finally connects the relationship of all the people involved with the two cases and begins the deduction.
