Wait. That artstyle, was it made by that ahegao obssessed artist? YOu know, the one who did that doujin where all touhous were dropped in the outside, and Reimu became a dancer/whore, and then everybody became obssessed with dicks?

this is always the correct answer. However did anyone besides me find China's sudden question odd.

Flandre is not completely stable. She's unable to control her powers, to the point where if she attacks a human, not enough body is left behind to drain blood from. (So far, she's eaten only prepared food.) Since Flandre is unable to control her powers and no powers were used, Flandre can't be the culprit.

Remilia's room is apparently within one minute of the gate, at least for Aya, as she was able to begin interviewing Sakuya at 17:30, after her arrival at 17:00 and half an hour of interviewing Hong. Therefore, the gate is 20 minutes away from Patchouli's room as well.

From this, and since Aya is not a friend of Patchouli (i.e., someone who would be able to approach Patchouli without getting laser'd,) Aya is exonerated. The remaining suspects are Sakuya, Hong, and Remilia.

At the time of the murder, Sakuya was being interviewed by Aya. Likewise, Aya was interviewing Hong Meiling within 15 minutes of the crime, at a place 20 minutes from the scene of the crime. Sakuya and Hong are both innocent.

Remilia is the culprit.



My scenario is as such.
At some time between 16:20 and 16:55, Remilia was able to slip past Sakuya. Perhaps Sakuya was yelling at a fairy maid and Remilia was very quiet, or perhaps a disguise or a window escape was involved. Remilia murdered Patchouli and left her on the bed at this time, and sealed both doors either with her own master key if she has one, or by picking the locks, which can also be used to lock doors. As she's 500 years old, it's not implausible that she knows how to pick locks. When she was done, Remilia returned to her room, again getting past Sakuya in the same manner as before.

Remilia might have made it look like a sealed room out of boredom. It's something out of a mystery novel, something exciting and challenging to do, and it is probably something she hadn't done yet in her 500 years of existence.

Are there any holes in this scenario?

>At the time of the murder, Sakuya was being interviewed by Aya. Likewise, Aya was interviewing Hong Meiling within 15 minutes of the crime, at a place 20 minutes from the scene of the crime

Actually, at the time of the murder Aya was still interviewing Meiling. Her interview with Sakuya didn't begin until 17:30, fifteen minutes after Patchy was killed.

Of course, that still leaves Sakuya off the hook, since she couldn't have killed Patchy at 17:15 and made it back to meet away fifteen minutes later when it takes twenty minutes to go from the basement to Remilia's room.

>At some time between 16:20 and 16:55, Remilia was able to slip past Sakuya. Perhaps Sakuya was yelling at a fairy maid and Remilia was very quiet, or perhaps a disguise or a window escape was involved.

The whole point of Sakuya being where she was at that time was to guard Remilia's room. Do you really think she would fail to notice the person she's trying to guard slipping in or out of the room she's standing right outside of? Disguising herself wouldn't work, either, since Sakuya would be even more likely to notice something as strange as someone other than Remilia leaving Remilia's room when she was supposed to be the only person in there.

The window escape would be plausible, but would only work if Remilia's room happened to be on the first floor of the mansion. Remember, one of the "facts" of this case is that no supernatural/psychic/youkai abilities or powers were used. Meaning that, depending on where her room is located in the mansion, even if she could sneak out of her window without any powers, it might not be so possible to do the same to sneak back in through her window.

>As she's 500 years old, it's not implausible that she knows how to pick locks.

Setting aside how unlikely it would be for any aristocratic, mansion-dwelling sort to take up locksmithing as a hobby, regardless of how many centuries they've been alive, if anyone in the mansion knew how to pick locks, one little master key breaking would probably not be as much of a problem as Remilia and Sakuya made it out to be.

I think you might be on the right track, though.

I think it's Meiling.

While she didn't have a lot of time to do it, she could have set up the crime scene, locked the library, and left the library key in Patchouli's chambers, locking up the room behind her and 'discovering' the room key later.

The fact that she didn't know about the master key being broken makes her much more suspicious, as that means she knows about the master key existing, and could thus use a trick with the room keys to try and frame someone else (Sakuya) who would theoretically have the master key.

Marisa arrived too late to kill, unless there is a trick involved in the time of death.

Sakuya is the last potential culprit if we go by the key 'finder' theory. I find it hard to believe it is her as it is clearly defined that it takes 20 minutes to travel between the library and Remilia's room, plus the fact that trying to set up the rooms to be closed circles does little for her innocence, especially as someone who carries the master key.

These seem like too simple conclusions for the time being, though.

The culprit was Marisa because all the rest were engaged at the time of death.

Marisa snuck into the mansion, murdered Patchy and then snuck out to return later and discover the body.

That kinda ruins the whole point of a "Who Dun' It" if a character outside of the general area could'va done it. Might as well be Reimu.

I think >>8496 is correct.

Meiling's question to Reimu raises a point. How in the world did she not know about Flandre causing a ruckus? Remilia's point about everyone should be able to hear it meant that had Meiling been even the tiniest bit awake, she would have known Flandre causing a commotion inside. Because she didn't know about that, she must have been asleep; lying to Reimu so that Sakuya, should she catch wind of the interview, would not basically browbeat her.

Now, as for Marisa, the whole thing about being friends and having an appointment wasn't known by Meiling or Sakuya, and while that is excusable, one piece of evidence damns her:

The blood on the floor. Assume that Marisa did kill Patchouli. There would have been blood all over the place, as represented by Patchouli's lower half. That meant that whoever killed Patchouli did so not in the library, but in her room. As far as the inhabitants know, Patchouli was in the library; never in her room. Why would Marisa know where the room was [notice she's the first to get there]?

There's obviously a few holes, such as the locked doors and how it was achieved, but suffice to say, that's my conclusion. QED.

Just an addendum to my post.

Marisa was the one that checked Patchouli's door, so it's entirely possible, should she be the culprit, it's not actually locked.

>>8496 Here

Going by the evidence shown in the interviews and the known time of death, Aya and Meiling are automatically exempt from suspect because the interview was taking place at the time of death.

Sakuya and Remilia are also exempt because Sakuya couldn't have made it back to Remilia's room to be interviewed in time after murdering Patchy. Remilia never left the room because she would've been seen by Sakuya.

There is absolutely no evidence for Flandre being the culprit but there is an easy way for Marisa to have killed Patchouli.

The manga specifies that no supernatural powers were used for the murder, in what amounts to red truth. If supernatural powers were used, it opens up a huge can of worms and drags in at least a dozen possibilities for outside culprits.

Obviously it was Yukari, manipulating the borders between the natural and supernatural.
