The state said that Adnan killed Hae because she displayed disrespect towards Adnan when she broke up with him. He gave up his religion by dating her when he was not supposed to, but Hae broke up with him. Adnan killed Hae since he viewed the break up as a dishonor towards him after he had given up his religion for her. The thing is, Adnan was born in America and he seemed to be more Americanized than being Muslim. He drinks, smokes, and date even when he was not supposed to, meaning that he doesn’t follow his religion. So it’s sketchy that he would suddenly follow a ritual of Muslims, such as honor killing, when he had followed the Americanize way his whole
From the outside anna Garcia's house looks like any other house, but after looking closer we find a crime scene.The deceased body of Anna Garcia was found face-down in the hallway of her home. Pills, a tipped over chair, news paper, and a cup were found Many questions were raised what happened,who did it, and when. But the most important is how, how did Anna die. Was she murdered, and if so why. Forensic evidence will tell us why
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
On August 7, 2015 a young women by the name of Heather Maples was found dead at The Cove Apartments, where she lived at. MPD Detective James Abbott discovered her body lying on her stomach, with signs of “blunt force trauma” to her head, and also marks on her neck which indicates strangulation. Her phone was discovered underneath her, so investigators went through in hopes of finding more evidence. She was last seen alive at a bar called Gentleman Jim’s Bar with a couple of male friends that night. One of those men were at her apartment drinking before leaving before the bar. Later on while leaving the bar, she left with one of her friends and had him drop her off at her apartment. When investigators checked her phone and found that the men she was at the bar with, both sent her text messages just hours before she was killed. Maples took a “selfie”
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. Still people hold on to these tiny mistakes but do not take in count of the clear evidence that shows Adnan 's innocence.
This reason makes senses because if there was an ice storm, Adnan wouldn’t be able to go out and kill Hae. “Hae disappeared on a Wednesday. That night there was a huge ice storm, which is unusual in Maryland. It ended up being a state emergency. And school was closed for the rest of the week.” 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
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
Adnan Syed Innocent or Guilty? If asked 12 weeks ago, it would have been so simple, but now a question that once seemed straight forward, is so complex. Sarah Koenig reports on the mystery, that all started on January 13, 1999, when an 18-year-old girl by the name of Hae Min Lee went missing. One month later, on February 9th, her body was found in Leakin Park, in Baltimore, Maryland. 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. Adnan was convicted because of one man’s story and one phone call from a phone log. Although this evidence could have been enough in another case, it proved nothing. Adnan is
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
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
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”). These two reasons are all that a person should need to believe that Adnan didn't have enough motive, or time, to kill Hae.
The person who killed Hae on January 13th, 1999 is Adnan Syed. He was assisted by Jay Wilds. Jay admits several times to assisting Adnan in Hae’s murder. While getting interviewed Jay says that he helped Adnan get to track practice and dig a hole for Hae’s body (7-8). This proves that Jay assisted Adnan in murdering Hae and that they were both involved in the crime. In episode two of Serial the state claims that Adnan is the one that did it. Sarah states on behalf of the state “And the motive the State supplied, the basis for the whole thing, was that after Hae broke up with Adnan, he couldn’t accept it. He was so wounded by her, and so furious, that he decided to kill her” (21). This shows that there was a strong motive as to why Adnan killed Hae. This proves that Adnan was the one who killed her. Jay and Adnan both committed a serious crime. Adnan killed Hae with the help from

Within the criminal justice system, there are two competing models: the crime control model and the due process model. These two models were constructed by Robert Packer and each represents a particular school of thought. In managing crime, there is the individual i.e. the suspect and there is the society. The due process model is seen to focus on the suspect whereas the crime control model focuses on the society. This paper analyzes these two models and based on the rate of crime in the society, makes recommendations as to which is the best model in criminal justice.
