The case you're referring to (Hotel Party Murder Case/Reunion with the Black Organization; Volume 24, File 238–File 242/Season 7, Episode 176–Episode 178) is what formed the basis of the theory that Gin and Shiho/Ai/Sherry had a relationship—Gin thinking of her naked, his recognition of her just by a single hair of hers, and their brief conversation on the roof.
Gin doesn't appear that often, of course, so apart from this and Mystery Train (him imagining her naked, again, in File 820), there weren't any references to it, beyond Hotel Party Murder Case/Reunion with the Black Organization. Over a decade and a half, this question still remains unanswered—I think Shinichi/Conan was going to ask her about it in File 242/Episode 178, but was interrupted before he could.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
