The real culprit is Manami

Conan says that the caps lock was not his intentionally but he hit it accidentally when he fall down. Conan explains further telling when the culprit left, in his fading conciousness, he pressed the keys assuming the keys where still in kana mode. When the caps are turned into kana, "J-U-N" comes out to "MA-NA-MI" which means that Manami Nakazawa is the real culprit. Manami then laughs telling him that he must be joking cause he has no proof. Conan then says that he indeed got proof, and explains that when she committed the crime, she removed her slippers because slippers make noise on a wooden floor which makes it possible for her to sneak up to Dr. Kurokawa, and without realizing, she stepped on the blood.
