Unless he could somehow remove the blood from the pristine white; but he doubted that it could ever be removed completely, white was a damn hard color to work with when it came to keeping it clean.
The body was bleeding out; Kaito had never seen a body fall from a high place like that, but he's pretty sure blood isn't supposed to be there with out a damaging external wound. The body's more or less intact from what he could see- but then again, he isn't that near the body to note the details and pursue the case. Nor does he have any intention- his natural curiosity urged him to, but he didn't want to walk into the throng of police officers, and any movement from him would be suspicious- why had tantei-kun wanted him here again?
A officer moves out of the way and Kaito sees that the neck is broken. Still not something to bleed from.
Then that meant something happened before hand or after death to make him bleed out. Considering that police had presumably swarmed the site and had gotten rid of any civilians and rounded up the potential suspects, chances said after.
In that case...He doesn't know how a body dropped out of the blue; he had been up there, replacing lightbulbs since forever; the body was either strung up while he was gone for the 10 seconds it took to change, or it had been there behind the ceiling panels, ready to drop. Behind the ceiling panels, since people's eyes and camera lens had been on this room the whole time, a person who dragged a bloody corpse in the room would be suspicious... unless the victim had been alive, the murderer using a pulley system to pull him up during the blackout on to the ceiling, and then letting him drop to the floor moments afterwards.
So chances said behind the panels. He hadn't had a chance to look at blueprints for this heist, he had been too busy to do much other wise than scope out the place by hand and eye. He didn't know what the place above the panels looked like. But he hadn't seen any blood- Towels? But then this would be over in an instant if one looked behind the ceiling panels.
Kaito wonders if this was done by remote control.
This is too flimsy. Kaito could have done a better job.
But it also was clever in the way that anybody could have done it, could have triggered it, if they covered their tracks right. The trap being set months before hand, and the memory to be buried in people's minds, deemed not relevant to the case. The body being there since who knows when- as long as the guy didn't die from dehydration or blood loss first, assuming he was alive when the body fell. If there was something to soak the blood up..
One press of a button.
If the murderer himself didn't trigger it... then what did?
If the murderer went down, the law said the person who pressed the trigger would still be guilty of assisted murder- Kaito didn't know the specifics, but that's what he assumed.
He was getting too ahead of the facts here, this was all speculation. He watches Tantei-kun speak with Takagi-san, and grins when he sees the personality change- flip of a coin, he's laying on the act. It's obvious from his mannerisms.
He snickers when the kid walks around and addresses the museum members- he should have planted a bug on him, but the kid was perceptive.
He wondered what Tantei-kun had up his sleeve- he had watched him make several deductions, though why he didn't bother hiding his genius with him was a mystery. It was easy to stay in the shadows- tell the adults to go chasing after him, and case closed.
He liked to think he was a nice mental stretch for the kid.
He navigated murder like it was the norm and the crime scene his home, Kaito thought wryly, a small frown on his face as he kept watch.
He didn't like detectives and crime scenes, that much could be said. He just wanted to get this over with, he had homework to proofread.
