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.
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
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
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
I believe that Jay is guilty because he never gave a perfectly in detail response that would show otherwise. He changed his story multiple times. He added information sometimes and would took some away. He had a guilty look on his face in pictures and when he talked there was something about his tone of voice that made me think ‘guilty.’
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. 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
This paper will consist of an analysis of the case presented in the podcast Serial. The podcast Serial is based on a first degree murder case in Baltimore, Maryland, USA that took place on January 13th, 1999. The case consisted of Adnan Syed, a 17-year-old Muslim boy attending his final year of high school being charged with the first degree murder of his 17-year-old ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. 16 years later, Adnan is adamant that he did not commit the crime, however he is still serving a life sentence for her death. In relation to the case, alibi believability, polygraphs, psychopathy, interrogations, inconsistencies within Jay’s story and confessions will be discussed throughout this paper.
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
Is Adnan Syed innocent or guilty? On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee was a senior at Woodland High School went missing. One month later, her body was found and her ex-boyfriend Adnan Syed was arrested for her murder. I believe that Adnan is innocent because he was seen at the library the day Hae Min Lee went missing and Adnan had an alibi who saw and talked to him at the library the day Hae Min Lee went missing.
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 comes a time in the criminal justice system where a law that was written to protect us will be challenged through a court case. That case will eventually make history and will become a reference in future cases with similar dilemmas. In 1983, one particular case met the criteria (Arizona vs. Youngblood). In this case, Larry Youngblood was convicted by a jury in Arizona of child molestation, sexual assault, and kidnapping of a ten-year-old boy. Both a criminologist for the State and an expert witness for the defendant testified as to what they believed the results were from the tests that were performed on the samples shortly after they were collected, they also commented on later tests performed on the samples from the boy’s clothing
The case of the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee an 18 year old student at Woodlawn High School in Baltimore, Maryland. She was last seen about 3 p.m. on January 13, 1999. Hae Lee 's ex boyfriend, Adnan Syed was arrested on February 28 at 6 am. and charged with first degree murder. This case on the podcast “Serial” there are two decisions to be made. Whether Adnan should be guilty or be proven innocent. If he’s proven guilty he will remain in prison for life. If he is innocent then he will be free. But based on all the evidence on the podcast. So should Adnan Syed be guilty or should the evidence in podcast shows that he is innocent. After
