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. There was very little evidence found and the evidence can not prove Adnan to be guilty. Adnan was at school on the day Hae was killed. When she was found and analyzed it was determined …show more content…
Adnan claims that he was at school when hae disappeared and he went to track practice. An important piece of information that was overlooked by the state, provides an alibi for Adnan.“McClain testified during Syed’s post-conviction hearing last week, saying she spoke with him at the public library on Jan. 13, 1999 at the very time the state says Syed killed Lee”. Asia McClain, a girl who went to the same school as Adnan and Hae said she saw Adnan at the library at the same time the state said Hae died at. If this statement is true, it would have been impossible for Adnan to be the killer.. Asia was not close to Adnan or Hae so it would not make sense for her to lie or be biased about the case. An article about his new attorney stated, ”Cristina Gutierrez made no attempt to contact McClain after she sent Syed a letter in prison stating that she remembers seeing him in the library in the afternoon”. The court seemed to neglect this information and not view it as a potential alibi for Adnan. If Adnan was really at the library, he would not be guilty and the whole case would be

Along with the dead bodies of the couple, a 9mm handgun was also found at the scene. The following morning, Andrew Kyle Hulsey, 23, was charged with capital murder in connection with his adoptive parents’ death. He has been detained at the Morgan County jail. The motive for the killing has yet to be determined.
This quote proves Adnan is innocent because their was an ice storm the day Hae went missing and Adnan wouldn’t been able to kill her on that day. Adnan isn’t guilty because Asia wants to prove that he is innocent. “I just wanted you to know where I stode in this entire issue (on the centerline).” This quote proves that Adnan is innocent because Asia wants to prove the court wrong. Therefore, Adnan isn’t guilty because Asia wants to prove that Adnan didn’t kill Hae and she wants to prove the court
Hae Min Lee was an extraordinary girl who had a bright future ahead of her, until she was murdered on January 13. Hae Min Lee was only 18 years old when she was murdered and the person who was charged for her murder was Adnan Syed; Adnan was Hae’s ex boyfriend and was believed to have kill Hae, and there was enough evidence to help prove that he was guilty. However that is not the case for Adnan, because he is innocent and did not kill Hae Min Lee on January 13. The first thing that should be pointed out is about when Adnan found out that Hae had died; he was clearly shown to be very distraught. As described by others they say, “We went inside and Adnan was sitting at the kitchen crying, after a while he said that there had to be a mistake and Hae was still alive…
Of course, many people think Adnan Syed is guilty of murdering Hae by contradicting himself, by saying, “I am in here for my own mistakes.” He might have been on the edge of confessing his guilt until Sarah caught this and asked what he meant, and quickly recovers from his mistake. Adnan also slips his tongue by saying that he wants people to only look at the evidence, and not his personality. If I were convicted of a crime I would certainly like to have my personality be looked at, if I were innocent. So they could see what good I have done.
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.
These people say that since Hae broke up with Adnan and that was enough reason to want her dead. However, Adnan was a smart kid who would realize that killing someone for breaking up with you is not a valid reason. Adnan was not hurt enough to kill Hae; he was devastated when she died and he didn't know about it when he was told. Also, they say that Adnan had enough time to kill Hae. What this opinion fails to take into account is that Asia saw Adnan at the library around the same time of the murder and she was never used in court as an alibi (Koenig, “The Best Defense is a Good Defense”).
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?
Adnan’s friend Asia sent him a letter while he was in prison saying that she saw him on the 13th of January during the 21 Minutes that were stated to have been the time that he had killed Hae Min Lee. She states that she saw him in the library near the school. She states that she was talking to Adnan and her boyfriend came up to them and started arguing with her thinking that Adnan was hitting on her. After Adnan leaves she states that the time was after 21 minutes that the state put the time of the murder at. This means that Adnan could not have killed Hae in the time that was stated that he killed her.
Opening Statement: The Defense Your Honor, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, opposing counsel, my name is Ana Delgado, representing the defendant, Adnan Syed, in this case. Adnan Syed is currently erroneously being accused of the killing of Hae Min Lee, his ex-girlfriend, who was an 18-year-old student at Woodlawn High school. After school, she was strangled to death in a public parking lot, which my client, Adnan, claims not to have been present at the time she was murdered. The prosecution has provided no physical evidence against my client and the evidence they have provided from a witness is unreliable and inconsistently erratic. Today, I will be providing why this is the case and why the State’s evidence doesn't prove Adnan Syed guilty

The crime was committed by a man named Derek Vinyard, a white supremacist. He murdered two black gang members after they attempted to steal his truck. If we look closely at the case of Derek Vinyard, we can see that the crime he committed weren’t just a spur-of-the moment thought of killing someone. The actions were rooted deep into his past, wherein his experiences have shaped him into the person that he was today. Certain aspects of his past have influenced his actions, including his environment, the companions that he keeps, his experiences, and a lot
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.
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. A third part is Haes car, they found it in an odd place but they didn 't run any prints to see if anyone else but Andn was in the car (Koenig, To be suspected.) Hae 's car I think was a bad part on the
