Karaoke Box Case

File 620 - The Vanished Blunt Weapon

Megure, Takagi and Chiba arrive at the karaoke box to investigate. They reveal that the name of the deceased is Tatsumi Moniwa and that he has suffered several deadly blows on the head. Since nobody has left the karaoke box after Moniwa’s arrival, the police determine that the murderer has not escaped, and thus is one of Eisuke, the clerk, Konji Arimoto, Kunio Tamai and Kyota Honma (the last three people are all clients arriving after Conan and company, and they do not know each other). Upon seeing Arimoto and his companion (who has never left their room and thus is not a suspect), Eisuke becomes horrified and starts sweating again, prompting Sonoko to ask him (impatiently) what the matter is. Eisuke stammers for a while, but eventually is able to find the courage to answer Sonoko’s question: he points at the very muscular Arimoto, and swears that he saw him make out with his companion, who is also very muscular. Sonoko, Ran, Conan, Megure and Takagi are all petrified by this account, and Takagi says that if the ones kissing were a normal couple then he would be fine with it, but in this case it was between two men. Arimoto’s companion angrily storms out of their room at this moment and accuses Takagi of being disrespectful, as she is actually a woman, and just happens to have short hair and an extremely robust build.

After this small incident, the police resume their investigation. By looking at the footage captured by the security camera, they see that Homna was the first one to leave his room after Moniwa had gone into his; Homna walked towards Moniwa’s room, but according to him only because the toilet is in the same direction. Then Eisuke left for the same place, then Arimoto, then Tamai, who clarifies that he went to the vending machine beside the toilet and not the toilet itself. Finally, the clerk and Conan went in that direction (the time difference is about one minute). Conan says that when he got to the crime scene the blood was already dry, which eliminates the clerk from the suspect list.

The police then inspect the personal belongings of the four remaining suspects to collect more clues and to, hopefully, find the murder weapon, as they have not found anything reseambling it anywhere else. Despite a detailed search, no valuable clue is found, much to their disappointment. Conan is puzzled as well, and while he re-evaluates the situation at hand, Chiba comes to Megure with the photos that Moniwa had taken before death: all of them are centered around Sonoko, forcing Conan to reconsider his assumption that the deceased is an FBI agent and not a stalker. At around the same time, a bored Arimoto suggests that he has a deck of poker in order to kill time; this inspires Conan, and before soon he knows both the identity of the murderer and the reason that the police cannot find the murder weapon.
