Introduction Context: Senior of Woodlawn High School, Adnan Syed, was convicted and charged with the first-degree murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. Not only is Adnan’s alibi inconclusive, but he also fails to recall any specific details or occurrences of January 13, 1999. His acquaintance, Jay Wilds, has served as the State’s key witness against Adnan. Thesis Statement: Despite having already served seventeen years in prison, Adnan did not murder Hae Min Lee. His innocence has not been captured due to missing alibis and perspectives the State is reluctant to hear, inconsistencies in Jay’s story, and biases in the law enforcement.

Scout describes Burris as, “The filthiest human I had ever seen” (Lee, 29) and describes him by saying, “His neck was dark gray, the backs of his hands were rusty, and his fingernails were black deep into the quick.” (Lee, 29).

Piggy represents the authority and morals the boys had left behind when they crashed, and the boys hated him for it because he is a constant reminder of everything they’ve ever
But Dustin is a human being. Yes, he should’ve acted differently, although we don’t know what goes on in someone’s head when they see something so crazy happen so fast. How would it feel to see someone you are so close to kill someone you just met? I wouldn’t believe it or know what to do.
