Who killed Komaru Naegi?
(all weapon based questions are a priority) Alibis:
Toko Fukawa-Watching Byakuya Togami, who was reading about plant specimens (Byakuya cannot confirm she was there all night but he was in the records room which suggests Toko was there at some point)
Leon Kuwata-By himself
Nagito Komaeda-By himself
Hajime Hinata-By himself
Ishimaru Kiyotaka-By himself
Hiyoko Saionji-By herself
Togami Byakuya-Being watched by Toko, although he was never actually seen by her since he was locked away in the records room
Gundham Tanaka-Also by himself, well unless you count the Four Dark Devas of Destruction
Chihiro Fujisaki-By themselves
Chiaki Nanami-By herself Interesting Points:
Komaeda had the trash room key, having traded the duty with Toko so she could stalk, er, I mean watch, I mean spend time with Togami
Tanaka discovered the body in the morning, and saw a shadowy figure at about 11pm or so near the dorms who could not have been Twogami, Nekomaru, or Saionji
Saionji asked Toko to get her a number of beauty products, including nail clippers, which Komaeda asserts could have been used to trim nails that had blood on them
Hajime has no weapons on him (unless Komaeda is lying)
Komaru likely got called out of her room by the killer, someone she potentially trusted, casting suspicion on Toko and Togami
Chiaki stole money from Twogami
The gun was found by Monokuma in Twogami's room
Twogami claims to have lost his room key briefly
Someone took Togami's pillow from his room and used it as a silencer for the gun
Genocider is missing scissors which were very likely the cause of the lacerations but this is unproven
Toko is currently in Genocider mode
Kuwata might have pulled the same trick with the incinerator as he did in the first game, but there's no proof of that yet
The records room was locked all last night, and Togami has confirmed he was inside
The cause of the switch between the source of the lacerations and the use of the gun may have been Komaru fighting back, potentially risking overpowering her attacker
Komaru had a note in her mouth that read "Plans" and "Blame E-", more parts of the paper were found reading "So many dif---ent ways to m---er people... I get shiv---rs just th----ng about it... B--- Th---re mu-- b- --- t- be-t the d-----. That is my P---."
Saionji and Sonia received notes with the other's name on it
Gundham went for a walk at 11pm but the body could not be seen at this point
Leon's towel was likely used to clean up the blood trail created by moving Komaru's body
The murder of Chihiro has something in common with this crime Relationships as they currently stand:
Toko/Genocider loves Byakuya Togami…he does not return the sentiment
Kuwata and Gundham aren’t getting on due to their mutual interest in Sonia
Komaeda loves Hajime (and Hajime seems to be flirting back)
Togami has not taken kindly to Twogami's appearance and attitude
Togami and Gundham are suspicious of each other Frame-Up Evidence

Chiaki Nanami: Stole money from Twogami Primary Suspects
Gundham Tanaka (was out and about last night, could possibly have activated the incinerator, "saw" a shadowy figure no-one else did, bloody hamster, has no alibi, wears white)
Nagito Komaeda (could have activated the incinerator, no alibi, connection to the victim, wears white)
Byakuya Togami (the only person with an alibi although it is not solid, connection to the victim, his pillow was used in the crime, could have paid for the gun, wears white)
Hajime Hinata (no alibi, no framing evidence, wears white) Conclusion
In Komaeda's words:
"So many different ways to murder people... I get shivers just thinking about it... But there must be Hope to beat the Despair... That is my plan...
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAA!!!~~~ BEAUTIFUL! I was afraid! So, so, afraid that you would be mistaken... I should never have doubted you all!
Who somehow knew that Jack just left her scissors on her bed?
Who knew the price of a gun despite claiming to disbelieve the store would sell one?
Who knew exactly how much money was taken from... I still can't tell the difference, they're identical.
Who knew about the monogrammed pillow?
Who presented the idea that Hajime's lack of a frame-up could be considered a frame-up?
Who was it that suggested to Monokuma that he say he was feeling "blue", "Dude", to point to Mondo's slip-ups?
...You get the idea.
Basically, by planting evidence that pointed to everyone... and making it abundantly clear that it was planted... It wasn't just to confuse you. I tried to get you to rely on something else.
I wanted you to listen. I wanted you to listen to me saying things that only the culprit could know.
Arguing among yourselves, they slipped right by. I could barely contain my frustration. Waiting to be called out. At the very end, it was Hiyoko of all people who caught on.
I'm so proud of you, Hiyoko.
Anyway, here's what happened.
Short version, I was forced to put my plan to frame everyone into action sooner than expected. See, I was spending a bit too much time alone, making plans. I thought of hundreds, really! I'm probably lying. Anyway, Komaru Naegi became suspicious. I meant to retrieve one of Jack's scissors from her room, and attempted to switch trash duty with Toko to get an opportunity to get into her room unnoticed. She refused because she had plans to be out of it all night anyway, stalking her beloved Byakuya. What luck!
Furthermore, I didn't even have to search. She left her scissors behind right there on the bed. Her true love simply didn't approve of Jack, and so she left them behind.
However, I was surprised when I returned to my room to find Komaru inside, discovering my plans. Well, they were more like 'ideas', as I didn't know what exactly I would eventually do. I kept them written down, which was my foolish mistake, but I can't be expected to remember every single idea I come with, can I?
She threatened to tell everyone, not knowing I bore scissors, and, well, INSPIRATION HIT! What better way to cultivate the Ultimate Hope... than for him to have to overcome the Despair of his own sister's death! I slashed her legs easily, snatched the papers out of her hands, and shoved them in her mouth as deep as I could so she couldn't spit them out, then slashed her arms, making it too painful to try and pull them out. This was in order to silence her. It wasn't the best gag, but she only needed to be quiet enough that she wouldn't be heard when I opened my door.
Now, apparently, Monokuma decided that should the doors only appear to lock, this would make for a more intriguing scenario. I realized this when it took no trickery whatsoever to get into Toko's room after she'd left it. It opened easily, but the lock appeared to be engaged. So! I stole the money necessary for a gun, the pillow, and made my purchase. I returned to my room, pulled Komaru outside to avoid leaving an overabundance of blood in my room, and shot her, using the pillow as a silencer.
I moved her body in front of Taka's room, and cleaned up the blood trail with Leon's towel. I used the key to the Incinerator, which I still had, thanks to Toko's refusal, and burned what needed to be burned. I did intentionally leave a bit of the pillow behind to be found as evidence, and also pulled out some of the feathers before incineration to place near my door. I would have liked a cleaner, more refined "Frame Everyone" plan, but I was playing speed chess. I left the scissors under Komaru's skirt, I planted the gun in Twogami's room, left Chihiro's make-up book, and left the contradictory letters to Sonia and Hiyoko. I didn't do anything to frame Chiaki, as she had also taken a bit of money to purchase a game. Lastly, I did nothing to point the finger at Hajime, because of course...
...he was my accomplice.
No he wasn't, but wouldn't that've been a great twist! Anyway, I didn't do anything to him because I thought it would further confuse you all, and I rather hoped it would end up with you all suspecting either me or him. I wanted to battle him a bit.
As for Gundham, he actually saw me as I was moving about. One of the hamsters even stepped in a bit of the blood, having perhaps smelled it and investigated. No further framing necessary there, but I tell you, Gundham, you nearly ended it all right there. Had you seen me... had it been you, and not your Deva that investigated... who knows?
I suppose that's that. I think I'm better at planning things out than improvising, but the murder was a crime of necessity... that will turn out to serve Hope in the greatest way possible. To think the person I would have to kill would just so happen to be someone whose death will throw Makoto into Despair... so that his Hope will bounce back brighter than ever... I truly am LUCKY!
Oh, and for the record... I'm happy that it's me who will be punished, rather than everyone else. My main goal would have happened regardless, but I'm quite happy to have lost.
Oh, and Toko? Don't be sad. You'll come back from this as someone who can even carry Hope through the loss of your first true friend! I envy you... truly...
Welp! Whenever Monokuma's ready! Remember everyone... no matter what happened here... like Makoto Naegi would tell you... Hope keeps on going!
