Sakurako Yonehara (米原 桜子 Yonehara Sakurako?) is a character in the manga and anime franchise Detective Conan.

Background

Sakurako Yonehara, age 23, works as a housekeeper. She is a childhood friend of Naeko Miike and Kazunobu Chiba from their neighbourhood, and at one class level below them in school. She was especially close to Naeko, from whom she sought protection when things got tough for her.

Appearance

Personality

Sakurako has a habit of speaking her opinions out loud. When involved in a criminal case, she appears to think that most people are innocent and has turned down theories to the contrary, thinking that the evidence just made it seem like the person was guilty. She has noticed Conan acts differently when speaking to adults than to friends. Since she has lost three employers in succession, she is of the opinion that she is suffering from some kind of curse.

Non-Canon Plot Overview

E-Y-E Illusion Case (Manga: 781-786, Anime: 652-655)

Picking up where the previous case left off, Heiji and Kazuha tell ConanRanMasumi, and Kogoro about a case they encountered where a body mysteriously disappeared, but three letters remained E-Y-E written on the tiles. This lead them to visiting the Wakamatsu household. There they encounter the family, several company workers, and the housekeeper (Sakurako Yonehara). Sakurako was a witness to the murder of Kohei Wakamatsu in a different house and remembered seeing letters written in English on the tiles. While eating, the son of the family suddenly dies and Sakurako, as well as Yoshimi Satake, become the prime suspects. Heiji accuses Sakurako due to her knowing the son's eating habits. During a later discussion of the company owned by Kohei Wakamatsu, Sakurako breaks the conversation saying that they should be more focused on the son's death and that all of them alienated him. Conan asks her to try to remember more about the previous murder and she recalls the English letter "S" which just happens to appear in all of the suspects names. She then draws Conan and Heiji's attention to the bathroom of the house they are in, which mimics the bathroom tile design from the second house. A call from Yamato, reveals that the second house's English letters spell out "S-O-N". Sakurako then points out to Conan that his manner of speaking in front of adults is different than when speaking alone with Heiji and herself. Heiji manages to play it off as Conan pretending to be a detective. During the case, Sakurako made a batch of black tea. Even at the end when the culprit is revealed, Sakurako defends them saying that it could just be that the evidence makes it look like they did it due to the coincidence that the son just happened to be hungry.

Ex-Boyfriend Next Door Murder Case (Manga: 847-849, Anime: 731-732)

Naeko gets a call from an old acquaintance who has just discovered a body at the Chateau Beika Condos, while the Detective Boys and Yumi are standing near by. It turns out that the call is from Sakurako, a childhood friend, who has become the housekeeper for the Itami family one week prior. The housewife of the family was wearing a cast and hanging from the ceiling. Conan and Sakurako recognize each other. When Sakurako is asked to recall a list of people who have access to the Itami mail box, she remembers another person who had figured out the code due to being good at memorization, Shukichi Haneda. During further investigation Sakurako determines for herself that there is no way that the housewife would have killed herself. She reveals many details about the housewife that she has learned in the short time she has been there. When Chiba enters the room he recognizes Sakurako as a childhood friend who was in the class a year behind his, and asks her if she remembers another person who was always with her, but gets interrupted. Conan and Shukichi solve the case.

A Blog That Causes a Death Case (Manga: 918-920, Anime: 814-815)

Professor Agasa and the Detective Boys go to a cake buffet where they run into two TV actresses who both run blogs. With them is Sakurako, who recently became an assistant to one of the bloggers, Kyona Shono, after her agent got sick. Someone had approached Sakurako's agency and requested a replacement. After Sakurako runs to the store for her new employer, she returns to find the door locked and asks the manager for a key. They enter the room and find her dead. When the police arrive, Sakurako tells Inspector Megure that she is cursed as her employers keep dying. Conan and Sakurako get told to wait in the room of the other blogger while the police investigate. They are given drinks, Conan gets an iced coffee and Sakurako gets black tea. Sakurako fades into the background for the rest of the case. After the solution, Kuroda makes a sudden appearance in Tokyo.
