It seems the crimes are connected.


The next day Dr. Agasa is attacked with a crossbow by a motorist, and Conan gives chase. Eventually the motorist gets away. Conan finds the clue the motorist left behind.
This time, it is a paper mache sceptre. He concludes all the "clues" are from a standard deck of regular playing cards. They are each the items a "face card" is holding. The king is holding a knife, the queen a flower, and the Jack a sceptre. Each victim is represented by a regular playing card.
