"Edge of Ocean", a newly-built conference and commercial centre, is being prepared to host an international summit. A day before the guests are due to arrive, a restaurant in of the inter-connected buildings is destroyed by an explosion.

M22 Case.jpg

Location: Edge of Ocean, Tokyo
Victims: Police officers inside the building (fatal) and outside (non-fatal include Rei Furuya and Yuya Kazami).
Cause of death: Explosion
Suspects: Kogoro Mouri
As officers were patrolling in preparation of the summit, a bomb exploded inside the Edge of the Ocean in the Japanese traditional restaurant.

To everyone's shock and dismay, the fingerprints recovered at the explosion site, match Kogoro's, and police discover further "evidence" on his computer. Nobody seems to be willing to represent Kogoro in the upcoming criminal trial, until Ran, Eri, and Conan are contacted by Kyoko Tachibana, a freelance lawyer, who says she will take on Kogoro's case.

Chief prosecutor Sayoko Iwai reviews the evidence and decides she has got enough to bring Kogoro to trial. She instructs Makoto Kusakabe, one of her prosecutors, to bring charges against Kogoro. The police are still investigating, however, and current findings point to a surprising theory - the gas valve and pressurized cooker used to set off the explosion can be connected to the internet (Internet of Things (IoT)) and that they were remotely accessed via a Nor browser being installed on Kogoro's laptop to set the bomb off. The police hold a press conference presenting their findings and just before it begins, citizens of Tokyo experience all sorts of cases of IoT- devices short-circuiting and setting off small fires. Kogoro was still in prision while these malfunctions happen, which proves he couldn't have been the culprit to begin with, the charges are dropped and Kogoro is released from prison.
