Adnan could not have killed Hae. On January 13 Hae Min Lee was last seen around 3:00pm after school and her body was found in a woodsy park on February 9 and was identified two days later. The first suspect for the crime was her ex-boyfriend Adnan who was still attending high school. After the sloppy course of interrogations the jury found him guilty with the murder of Hae. But then what was the evidence that was used to lock Adnan up for his whole life, there was no physical evidence that Adnan killed Hae and secondly none of the stories that Hae's friend make are really truthful to what actually happened mainly referring Jay at this point. Adnan and Hae broke up on November 3rd, and after a couple of days of broken feeling they went back to being really good friends with no hatred or sadness for each other. Adnan was also known as a "great guy" from around town and was really loved by friends and family, he was going to live up to everyone's expectations that he
Jays testimony sets the timeline and proves there is enough evidence, which is not presented by Adnan’s lawyer, to say Adnan is innocent by a straying story. The time period where Hae could've been killed does not match Adnan’s timeline. Jay, who is a convicted felon, was the only witness and is trusted to give a good story. Cristina Gutierrez, who was Adnan’s lawyer, had medical issues that distracted her from using useful information in his case. If our judicial system still believes that someone is innocent until proven guilty, then Adnan has to be innocent, because they did not prove him
Although the question of whether or not Adnan Syed is innocent or guilty is so complex, the law would state that Adnan is innocent. There were no reasonable doubts about his innocence. The only logical answer seems to that, this is not a case of one man’s innocence rather the bias of someone involved in this case. Adnan’s freedom was forestalled due to this unknown because of one man’s story and one phone call from a phone log. This evidence should not have been the cause of a conviction, and should not be keeping an innocent man lock away behind bars. Adnan is innocent and should currently be a free
The law states that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty and because Adnan Syed is far from being proven due to lack of actual evidence. Whether you want to believe he was involved in this murder or not, there is no reason for him to spend one more day in jail. Yes many believe that certain inconsistencies and theories that are not actually reliable mean he is the one who committed this heinous crime. The reality is Adnan has an alibi, the reality is Adnan has no motive behind this act, the reality is there is no evidence out there to make Adnan serve the life sentence. I am confident that Adnan has 100% undeniably been wrongfully convicted of first degree murder.
Murder, the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another. Premeditated means that the killing of the person was planned out, this helps support that Adnan Syed is not guilty. In 1999 an eighteen year old girl named Hae Min Lee went missing from Baltimore, Maryland. Her ex boyfriend Adnan Syed was accused of murdering her and disposing her body in Leakin park. The problem is that all the evidence used to persecute Adnan does not add up to make a strong case. This case has many strong pieces of evidence, which show that Adnan was not capable of killing Hae Min Lee.
Another reason why Adnan is innocent is Jay, Adnan 's long time “buddy”. Jay already seemed like a person who most people wouldn 't trust, Jay smoked and deals marijuana, many people saw him as a dark person and Jay even said he was a criminal person (). One of the biggest points was when Jay was in court and he was changing his story every time, like when he was asked if he helped Adnan bury the body, at first he said no he only watched but after awhile he said he helped bury and he even got the shovels and and hid them(). I feel like Jay was changing the stories on purpose because the cops told him if he pinned it on Adnan he won 't get in any trouble because he said he helped the murder and admitted to smoking and selling weed (). A third
Adnan was found guilty for the murder of Hae Min Lee but never once confessed or confirmed his involvement. It was Adnan’s friend Jay who connected the dots throughout the investigation by providing the police with important details of Hae’s murder. If police had conducted a Guilty Knowledge test with Adnan during his interrogation, the police would have had the opportunity to ask him those specific questions pertaining to the murder and monitor his reactions. With The Guilty Knowledge Test, only Adnan would know the answers to important questions such as the whereabouts of Hae’s vehicle and how she was murdered. The Guilty Knowledge test is very effective at identifying innocent participants and has a 98% accuracy rate (Dahl, 2016). Therefore, if Adnan really was innocent there is a very high chance this would have been detected by conducting a Guilty Knowledge
"Don 't judge a book by its cover" is a famous saying that some of us heard it before and some of us experienced it. 12 jurors were experiencing this quote when they gathered to decide whether a young boy is guilty by killing his father or not. Juror 2 stated, "Well, anyway, I think he was guilty" (6). Juror 2 represent most of us, as sometimes we judge from what we hear and not from what we see. The 12 jurors are from various backgrounds and each one has a distinctive personality. What is worth our attention in this movie is how in the beginning they are trying to convince each other to vote guilty. 11 juror voted guilty and only one voted not guilty. Their judgments were based upon either their past personal experience which created their thoughts and behavior or upon facts. Juror 8 represents the conscience. He stood up for his inner feelings that the accused young boy is innocent. Moreover, when everyone decided that the boy is guilty, he suggested that they should talk about it first. Furthermore, he said that he didn 't
According to JK Rowling in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, “Killing is not so easy as the innocent believe.” On January 13, 1999 Hae Min Lee, a senior at Woodlawn High School, Baltimore, Maryland disappeared. Almost a month later, on February 9, 1999, her body was found lifeless in Leakin Park. Moreover, the results of the autopsy stated that the victim died of manual strangulation. In the most unfortunate cases, the crime was blamed on her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, who got convicted of first degree murder serving a life sentence in jail. The question everyone’s asking is, was it right that the court decided to convict Adnan Syed? Hae Lee’s death is shattering, but Adnan shouldn’t have been condemned of the crime because he is not
Relationships, lies, murder, conviction. These are all aspects that come into play when talking about the January 13th, 1999 murder of high school student Hae Min Lee. Adnan Syed, Hae’s 17-year-old ex-boyfriend was convicted of her murder in 2000. The problem with this is that the only evidence the state had to convict Adnan was the stories told by others, specifically someone named Jay who was with Adnan for some of the day Hae went missing and had possession of Adnan’s car and cell phone. He claims Adnan made him come pick him up after the murder was committed and assist him in burying Hae’s body. This story alone ultimately convicted Adnan. No physical evidence was ever found. Reporter Sarah Koenig realized the patchy story of this case
Queenie Valupides is a young lady that is a suspect in the killing of her husband. Queenie Valupides is guilty for murdering her husband because of the fact that she was home alone for ten minutes, they have had a fight just a few hours ago, and there is a pan cooking on the stove and nobody has been at the house for a few hours. There is no evidence to a person being in the house while she was away. Although mr. Volupides dead body gave evidence that he had been drunk. The police can look at the fact that she had been at the house before her friends.
The first reason I believe Adnan is innocent because he was seen at the library the day Hae Min Lee went missing. This reason makes sense because it explains how Adnan is innocent. This part of the story is when Asia and her boyfriend saw Adnan at the library the day and time Hae Min Lee went missing. "Asia McClain saw him in the library at 3:00. Asia boyfriend saw him too. Library may have cameras." This quote proves Adnan is innocent because it shows who saw Adnan the day Hae Min Lee went missing and where Adnan was. The evidence that is shown is when Asia and her boyfriend saw Adnan the time Hae Min Lee went missing. "Asia plus boyfriend saw him in library
Anya Schultz, the author of a review titled Serial: A Captivating New Podcast, works to show how multiple narratives and stories can be manipulated and sometimes vastly misinterpreted. Serial, an intriguing, enthralling podcast hosted by Sarah Koenig, tells the story of Hae Min Lee, a young, beautiful, high school senior who was murdered in 1999. Lee 's case, as Koenig and Schultz point out, has a few missing pieces of information that were never accounted for. For example, how did the jury come to the conclusion that Lee 's ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was truly guilty? Why did Syed 's lawyer forget to mention the letter from his acquaintance Asia McClain that could have polished his alibi? All of these questions and more are answered, or contemplated, throughout a series of twelve episodes that dive straight into the facts, the evidence, and the holes in each suspect 's
Although there was evidence found against adnan. But there was no DNA test done to show that adnan killed hae . For example hae body was naber tested. Also the rope that was found near hae 's body was not tested,and no fingerprint was test. DNA test is the most important thing in a murder case. But in Adnan Syed case this was not done. If the DNA test was
There was not enough evidence to prove if Adnan was innocent or guilty. There were multiple people that said that Jay had Adnan’s phone but Adnan called Jay at least twice which means that Adnan would have had to use a payphone or borrow a phone. And supposedly Adnan was sitting in the best buy parking lot when he called Jay. Also in the time it took
