This.

It should be known by now even to casuals and lurkers where to find this stuff. The spoiler cbox is part of the DCTP website, so that shouldn't be difficult to find. Otherwise, a simple google search will yield results as well.


In that case, I'll just leave it at this:

If the spoiler box doesn't have links to the newest spoiler pics (due to there being too many), just click on the links to the spoiler pics of older files (i.e., the ones that didn't have too many spoiler pics). One should be able to make their way to the new spoiler pics, from there.

...If that's the case, then so much for the mystery :P
so Ned was right in the end.

That...wouldn't actually say anything about who the killer is...would it?

Yeah. Have to wait for the full chapter to figure out the culprit.

Spoiler:
New leaked pic reveals Onimaru to be contestant Iori and Okita talked about. But he won't fight in finals due to sudden family business about a title.

So Okita or Heiji, whichever wins will be champion

Spoiler:
So it really is Onimaru (the hint with "strong as an oni" wasn't really subtle though xD), that's cool. Almost a bit disappointing that he won't fight (and probably not even appear much more or even at all if he has family business), but hey, Gosho already extended Okita's cameo status, can't grant too many of these suckers more screen time. Anyway, looks like after the reference to Onimaru in the Zombie case, Ryo Horikawa will get to truly revisit an older role of his for one scene ^^

Spoiler:
Yep, it's going on the top of the list of scenes that'll be anticipated for the next year, to be sure, for old school fans of Gosho, himself, not just of DC.

Indeed.
Spoiler:
However, it'd seem the whole "cutter" thing wasn't related to the murder altogether and the old man made an assumption there.

Heiji figured out what the victim was actually talking about but the mystery remains of who did it and how the stomach medicine is related.

明智 ナンシー
Spoiler:
My fanfic account:
https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7291651/Swagnarok
Character key for my DC stories:
Yoshiteru Nichimura: Japanese-American CIA agent, Hidemi's colleague and former boyfriend. Known among the ranks of the CIA as "Grim Reaper", from his skull-like face and his deadly short-range combat skills. He has a very good fast draw and he's very highly proficient in the Israeli martial art form called Krav Maga. However, he has no talent as a sniper, and he doesn't bother trying to be one.
Ryan Jackson: African-American CIA agent and director of CIA operations in Japan involving the Black Organisation. He was once good friends with Ethan Hondou, who taught him how to charge at a gunman without getting hit. He was an army chaplain who served in Iraq, seeing combat on numerous occasions, most notably during the Second Battle of Fallujah. He's been a lifelong resident of Metairie, LA, and he's married with several children. He graduated from Loyola University Maryland.
Elena and Atsushi Miyano: Faked their deaths and now secretly lead a "White Organisation" against the Men in Black. Parents of Akemi, Shiho, and Satoshi Miyano.
ELXR-0666: A drug developed by the BO that can revive the dead, the ultimate aim of their research and development of APTX-4869.
Nancy Akechi: Ran Mouri, revived by ELXR-0666 and then shrunken to a 7/8 year old by APTX-4869. Lives with Conan and her two parents, who are unaware of her true identity. Is the sixth member of the "Detective Boys".
Cognac: Shinichi Kudo made a bargain with Elena Miyano: Join the BO in exchange for the drug that could revive Ran from the dead. He became a Black Crow under the codename Cognac, specialising in using his detective skills to investigate matters important to the Organisation.
Antichrist: An ancient hominid species very closely related to Homo Sapiens. They were biologically indistinguishable from human beings, except for the presence of the "Altar Organ", an internal bodily organ that allowed them to replace one of their other body parts, even the brain, with a corresponding one belonging to another person upon consuming said replacement body part. This species went extinct long ago, but they are relevant to the BO's plans today.
Yoko Okino: Boss of the Black Organisation upon the death of Korn, who in turn succeeded Pisco. Codename: Cabernet Sauvignon. Her mother was a member of the BO Council, and she raised her daughter to worship the Ancient Canaanite gods. Yoko's philosophy was also shaped by something that she witnessed as a child, the bullying of one of her classmates that led to suicide. She represents the "young blood" of the Organisation, and her religious fervour sets her apart from the Council, which consists of elderly and middle-aged bureaucrats and businessmen. She sees them as heretics.
Mezcal: Biochemist who assumed control of the APTX-4869 project upon Sherry's defection. He joined the project approximately one year before the events of Episodes 128-129 and the two of them worked closely in developing the drug.

About the "box-cutter" mystery:
Yunnie's Deduction
Spoiler:
The line in Japanese sounds like ‘katta ga chi de kirehen kara, kawari wo mottekoi’.

Old man thought that he said katta as shortened version of katta naifu, which means box cutter.

But actually the hint with cutter yacht told us, that the cutter can be something different. Why the old man thought of the knife? Because he doesn’t know any cutters and you can use ‘kiru’ with. Kiru means ‘to cut’… So, obviously, when you hear ‘cutter’ and ‘cut’ at the same sentence, you think that obviously he’s speaking about a cutter knife.
But, you know, kiru also has another meaning. Which is ‘to wear’.
Victim’s wife is bringing him spare clothes.
Victim had a nosebleed.
And, finally, cutter in kansaiben means ‘cutter shirt’! Or sports shirt with long sleeves.

And the mystery is clear as day:
‘katta ga chi de kirehen kara, kawari wo mottekoi’
Because of the blood, I can’t wear my cutter shirt, so bring me another one.
And the call was to his wife.

My thoughts on File 990-992:
Spoiler:
Akane is probably the culprit.
She fed Nukitani with chocolate(which is bad for people with ulcer) to start his stomach ache, in order for him to leave and privately take medicine(luckily for her, he got a nosebleed that ruined his cutter shirt, which became another reason to leave for a private phone call). That way she can create an opportunity to kill him outside, close to the restroom(where her backpack was placed beforehand). Being his lover, she probably knew of his routines of where he goes when he wants privacy outside the tournament.

Conan might've realized that the culprit(Akane and her chocolate) was the reason to why Nukitani was taking medicine, right before getting killed, here:

Image

The culprit wore the hakama the other way around, compared to how Okita wore it. That's why the blood is in the back:

Image

This could be due to a gender difference, in terms of how you wear a hakama.

Only the chocolate near the edge was melting because only that part was affected by heat:

Image

She might've tucked that side of the chocolate box behind her "tare"(within the "do"), which resulted the extra heat that accumulated on the edge of the box, or/and maybe the sewing scissor was hot and was touching the edge of the chocolate box(while they were in the bag).

The scissor was in someway used as a weapon. Maybe heat played into it. As for blood, the forensics were gonna test for it, but since this was premeditated, she probably managed to avoid leaving blood traces on it. She mentioned toilet paper was running out when she was exiting the restroom, so maybe that played a role again.

Image

Iori is definitely the unknown silent passerby:

Image

Considering that Momiji was willing to do something about Okita, It's possible that she is behind Onimaru's upcoming absence in the finals. She seemed to already be aware of Onimaru's situation, just by getting Iori's confirmation about something. Maybe the Tokyo governor is someone close to her.

And of course, last not but least,... the winner of this Kendo Tournament is:

Spoiler:
Yes, I agree :) I also found the fact suspicious that she pointed out that the toilet paper had run out, apparently she used it to wipe off the blood. And she was the only person in the women's restroom after all.
Also, the chocolates she carried have a direct connection to the medicine he took, thematically.

About the weapon.
In File 992 (page 14), Tsuneyuki mentions that he heard a rasping sound. It might've been what Takagi suggested, the sound of the cutter being broken apart. Akane might've broken down the cutter into pieces, using her scissor, after warming the cutter up under hot water. Afterwards, she hid the warm pieces under the chocolate(that were on the edge), which resulted the melting.

Only part that i find weird .. is how did she get hot water ?
I don't think public restrooms or school restrooms have hot water or they may have but hot water is not enough to warm scissors enough to cut metal.. never was..never will. Either she had a candle , lighter or something which can glow for a long time so as to do that.

I want to focus on the chocolate subject a lil' bit:
Spoiler:
First I do agree with you that the girlfriend is the culprit, seeing how she's more or less the only person with a real motive.

I feel like the victim would've noticed that he was fed chocolate. Also the chocolate she has looks like a cheap brand, she has no pocket change on her person, and the chocolate box is still not missing any pieces(unless she bought a second box, which seems improbable to me).
The chocolate seems to have melted right-side down, and the middle-right piece is the one that have melted the most, I'd assume she'd put the first metal piece in either corners rather than middle one in a hurry.
also there's a simple pattern on the choco pieces(an amazing discovery!) that Gosho went out of his way to keep slightly intact, I'm mostly wondering why though(seems completely irrelevant and physically impossible)...
somebody should try seeing if they can make out what's written on the box to see if it's the real thing, if they have a better ref imageImage
(teehee image theft).

Cutter(like in utility knives) are pretty thin, and therefore to some degree bendable. Heat would scientifically make it even more bendable(am I wrong?).

I wasn't assuming that she fed him without him knowing. She probably offered him that and he might've not known the side-effect that it has on him. As for the Chocolate box:

The size gives me the impression that another row of chocolate is hidden.
