A hostess named Hiroko Inoue is found dead in her home by Osamu Kitzuka, a colleague of Inoue's to be husband Akira Taokaoka. Kitzuka had a planned meeting with Taokaoka on that day and was the reason he found the body. As Kogoro and Conan investigate, the police conclude it to be a random burglary after Taokaoka's alibi proves he was at Fukushima Prefecture during the time of Inoue's death. Conan is able to find conclusive evidence on Taokaoka and tranquilizes Kogoro to reveal that Inoue was murdered in Fukushima and carried back to her home by Taokaoka dressed as a delivery man. The time of Inoue's real death is shown when a video recording by Inoue is interrupted since Taokaoka accidentally pulled the plug to the VCR. As evidence against Taokaoka, there was coral sand found on Inoue's shoes and in the trunk of his car; a beach in Fukushima has coral sand. Taokaoka confesses and reveals Inoue was forcing him into marriage to repay his debt to her.
