Person: Masayuki Ogawa

For two years, Dr. Ogawa has been receiving toys and money once a month from an unknown sender. When he received a large sum of ¥25,000,000, he decides to contact Kogoro Mouri.

Resolution []

Tomoya Ogino

The patient, Tomoya Ogino died from appendicitis in three years ago. All the properties that were send to Ogawa were Tomoya's.


The culprit's face revealed, Ogino, the father of Tomoya Ogino.

  • Evidence
    • Two years ago, an anonymous person started sending Dr. Ogawa boxes full of toys, along with some cash, on the first day of each month. And once every year on a winter, Morning Glory flowers get delivered to the hospital where he worked.
    • Dr. Ogawa received the flowers on that exact same day. However, this time the money came separately with a letter.
    • Coincidentally, as Conan was playing with one of the toys, he discovered that there was a username in the video game that was not of Dr. Ogawa's five-year old son, Yuta. He rummaged through patient records and found that Tomoya Ogino, indeed, was a kid who passed away three years ago on that day after being operated on by the doctor.
  • Conclusion

Conan deduced that the presents were not given to Dr. Ogawa in gratitude, but with grudge and hate, by someone related to Tomoya Ogino. The toys belonged to Tomoya and was send as a memento of the boy. The money was from the life insurance.

Sensing that Yuta was in danger, they rushed and found him in a park near his kindergarten with an unknown man. Turned out, this man was Tomoya's father, who planned to end Yuta's life on the same day and at the same age that Tomoya died. The father lured Dr. Ogawa and Yuta with his son's old toys and life insurance money, and sent his son's favorite flower to commemorate his death.

Had Conan not interfered by kicking a nearby soccer ball towards the man, Yuta wouldn't have been saved from an ill fate. Mr. Okino, facing Yuta's gratitude for the toys and is reminded of his son, breaks down and finally admits to himself that Tomoya's death wasn't the doctor's fault. However, Dr. Ogawa decided to forgive the culprit, citing that, as a father, he understood how devastating it was to lose a son.

As for Ran, she stopped her suspicion that Conan was Shinichi. He had asked Professor Agasa to call Ran as him using the Voice-Changing Bowtie.

  • Motive
Tomoya's father could not accept that Tomoya died not of surgical complications from Dr. Ogawa's hands. He blamed Dr. Ogawa and planned to have his revenge by taking away what he believed was also taken from him: a father's son.

Manga to anime changes[]

Main article: List of differences between the manga and anime

  • In the manga, this story takes place after the Luxury Liner Serial Murder Case, as Ran gets a letter from Natsue who mentions that she and Takeshi are living a more quiet life on the ranch. Natsue tells Ran to give her regards to her "detective boyfriend", which sets up the story. The anime version starts with Ayumi, Mitsuhiko, and Genta asking about Shinichi and whether he is Ran's boyfriend.
    • Additionally, Ran's recollection of the past cases included a flashback to "Luxury Liner Serial Murder Case" in the manga only.
