The police think you did it. That’s what happens to Adnan Syed. Adnan was convicted of the murder of Hae Min Lee 6 weeks after she went missing. On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee went missing, and on February 9, 1999, her body was found in Leakin Park in Baltimore. Adnan Syed is guilty of killing Hae Min Lee, but there isn’t enough evidence to convict him of murder.
Suspects have been named and hounded in all of these. Most people came to believe that the murderer was the young child 's father, or his wife. This belief was based on media attention given to the case rather than any real facts or evidence. Some people have been cleared and others have died while trying to clear their names (Murder and Subsequent). Still, the crime goes unsolved

The fact that they were not in high profile careers or had lots of money to hire the best lawyers money could buy, ensured they got processed by the court system in a normal everyday way. Ray Lewis was charged for a double murder and in the end was only charged with an obstruction of justice and got the punishment of 1 year of probation and a $250,000 fine from the NFL. According to the New York Post, his limo driver gave an eyewitness account, verifying that Lewis was in fact, a more than willing participant in the fight that ended the victim’s lives.
After an extensive autopsy, it was found that Hae was strangled to her death. Shortly after researching the case, Hae’s ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was accused, and convicted of the murder.

We all remember the O.J Simpson murder case as the most publicized criminal trial in American History. Nicole Brown Simpson, Simpson’s ex-wife, and Ronald Goldman were murdered on June 12, 1994. Simpson went on trial and with the best lawyers he could get his hands on which included Robert Kardashian. On October 3, 1995 Simpson was found not guilty for the two murders.

Echols and Baldwin were arrested not long after.

Therefore, Martin Bryant is undoubtedly guilty for the murder of 35 people along with 20 people injured as though he initially denied having anything to do with it, he later confessed at the court hearing, and admitted his
There are several incidences in history when someone was accused of witchcraft. Maybe they didn’t have anything to do with witchcraft but if someone said it, everyone believed them. Some many people’s lives were taken because of something they didn’t do not had a part in. From June – September 1692, 19 men and women have been convicted of witchcraft. They were carted to Gallows Hill, a barren slope near Salem Village for hanging.

Wayne Williams is currently serving a life sentence for the murders of two adult men, but prosecutors believe Williams is responsible for killing twenty-three children during a time branded as the Atlanta Child Murders (Rowson, 2015). Since his conviction in 1982 Williams has professed his innocence, which has generated vast speculation among criminal justice experts concerning Williams’s involvement in these crimes (Rowson, 2015). A recent study conducted by the Department of Justice (DOJ), the FBI, the Innocence Project, and the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers revealed that before 1999 the FBI used faulty hair analysis in 96 percent of cases (Rowson, 2015). Furthermore, Williams’ attorney received a letter from the DOJ
Detectives had searched all of the Maloney’s house, inside and out, and had no idea what weapon was used exactly, or where it was left. Policemen had handcuffed Mary Maloney, and said trial will take place soon. The trial had took place on Monday April 19th, a week after Patrick Maloney’s death. Mary Maloney had pleaded not guilty, and judges asked for the evidence. But, of course, the evidence was still not found.
A friend of Maureen Brainard-Barnes, the first of the victims to disappear, says she got an odd call a few days after the 25-year-old vanished in 2007. “ said she was at a whorehouse in Queens,” Sara Karnes tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue, on newsstands now. “I told him she would never go for that, because she was independent. He goes, ‘Well, that’s where I saw her.’ And he described her to a T to me.” Karnes, who passed her information on to the police, says the man she spoke to didn’t have an accent. “He definitely isn’t from New York, Boston or Maine, because those are
Imagine just at the age of 18 you are convicted for a murder you never committed and were locked away for the rest of your life. That 's what happened to Adnan Syed, I believe that Adnan was unjustly convicted of the murder of his ex-girlfriend in 1999 because of bad evidence, Jay 's story was mostly a lie, and that he had a bad lawyer. One reason why I think Adnan is Innocent is how bad the evidence is.When Mr. S first found Haes body there were a bunch of evidence, but the items that stuck out to me were the empty bottles and the rope, but the bottles and rope were never tested so we didn 't know if Adnan was drinking that night or if the real killer used the rope (Koenig, “Leaking Park”). Another part of evidence that never made sense was the phone booth at best buy (Koenig,”To be suspected”). This phone was used to call Jay to pick Adnan up right before they buried Hae 's body, but a number of people said and the blueprints showed that there wasn 't even a phone booth there so he couldn 't of made the call.
color...put the URL below your paraphrased note. During the time of the murder women were considered weak and never had there been a murder where a woman is the suspect. This is why her story became so well known. As for the lack of forensic science in this day and age Lizzie was never proven to be the killer and to this day almost 120 years later she’s still not proven guilty. Lizzie Borden was born july 19,1860 in Massachusetts.
