One of the hardest things to fathom is what drove Adnan to strangle Hae. Police officials kept coming back to the fact that Adnan was the ex-boyfriend, but this doesn’t hold much value when Syed claims the break-up was mutual and they continued to be friends despite breaking up (Koenig Episode 2). Mutual breakups typically don’t end up in rage against one another, which is why the theory of Adnan being guilty is so hard to believe. If he had no bad feelings toward her then there would be no motive for him to kill her in the first place. In addition to the motive issue behind Adnan’s conviction, Adnan repeatedly claims that he did not
Even though the Zodiac’s identity is still uncertain to this day there are some truths that investigators have confirmed. To begin with, the Zodiac would occasionally send letters to newspaper companies, and the first one he sent was on August 1, 1969 (“Zodiac Killer Biography”). Many investigators believe he was sending letters to newspaper companies because he wanted to intimidate the public and taunt the police for not being able to catch him. In addition to that, he would also include cryptic ciphers in his letters that contained hidden messages about his addiction to killing people (Newton 412). Furthermore, the Zodiac has been “directly linked to at least 5 murders in Northern California” (“Zodiac Killer Biography”).
When Angel was arrested for this crime and taken in by police he knew little English. He struggled to talk to the police when he was being interrogated by them. After hours of interrogation Angel was asked to write a confession in Spanish that was later translated to English. In Angels original confession there was many flaws. A report from The National Registrations of Exonerations that was studying Angels’ case states that:’’Although, Angels confession had many mistakes.
The Zodiac killer is one of the most wide-spread killers in our nation. People have claimed that they know who the Zodiac killer is several times, but there has been no factual proof that a single person is the Zodiac. To this day, the Zodiac Killer remains one of the most incomprehensible and brutal cases in the United States. The mystery behind who the Zodiac Killer is can be summed up in two theories: Arthur Leigh Allen and Ted Kaczinki. To start with, Betty Lou Jensen and David Faraday, the first known Zodiac victims, was just a step for the infamous killer to come to light.
People believed Ross Sulivan was the Zodiac due to his suspicious behavior and dress attire, also where he lived. Other people believe Earl Best was the true Zodiac because of his child’s book and his scar that is just too much like the Zodiac’s for it to be a mere coincidence. People have been studying the Zodiac for years trying to figure out who he really was but alas, no one has ever truly been proven guilty. Even though the Zodiac killer has never been caught for his 5 murders, in the grand scheme of things this is a miniscule amount, for according to pewresearch.org 62% of homicides and murders go
The Zodiac killer was a serial murderer in the San Francisco area during the nineteen-sixties. He was known for the letters he sent to the San Francisco police. The letters included various enciphered messages, which lead to police being wildly confused as they spent days upon days trying to decipher the Zodiacs cyphers. Some of his earlier cyphers were easily solved, others remain unsolved to this day. While the Zodiac Killer was never caught, many suspects came to light during the time of the investigation.
The evidence for this case was very unexplainable, but of course, the state went after Hae’s ex-boyfriend Adnan who really had nothing to do with the murder. Things that prove Adnan’s innocence are the breakup between him and Hae, how Adnan thought about and his feelings towards Hae, how the times and stories told with others didn’t suit well, and his alibi. Additionally, his DNA didn’t match with items found near Hae and her autopsy and medical evidence didn’ match the stories told by Jay, inaccurate stories that the state relied on. As has been noted, the past relationship and breakup had a big part in Adnan’s conviction, however according to many people, this doesn’t add up. The motive for this murder, claimed by the state, was that Adnan was upset about the breakup between
The prosecutor, the examining magistrate, and Meursault’s own lawyer were curious and confused, for they did not know Meursault’s motives or his justification for his actions. The magistrate, with a puzzled expression on his face, asked Meursault, “‘But why, why did you go on firing at a prostrate man?’ Again I found nothing to reply” (Camus 42). In order to solve the case and fairly sentence Meursault to the punishment he deserves, the authorities were eager to discover why Meursault has done such an unscrupulous thing. Camus’ use of repetition within the magistrate’s question emphasizes the yearn for a reasonable explanation for Meursault’s actions. Many, if not all, of the questions the magistrate and the prosecutor direct towards Meursault during the trial began with the word “why” and the conclusions made simply attempts to establish a sense of rationality in a world that is truly irrational.
Is a suspect and not-a decent human being..” Shelby believed that Terence Crutcher was so suspicious, that she had to go investigate why he was there rather than help him because he looked like a “bad dude.” It’s almost a guarantee that if Terence had been a white man, Betty might not have been so aggressive in getting him to comply, she might not have been so suspicious of him, she might not have drawn her weapon because she would not have felt as threatened by someone that was nonviolent. Although some people believe that because Crutcher was noncompliant, he deserved to die, Tiffany Crutcher insists that her brother because he was not committing a crime in the first place, so he should not have even been approached by Shelby. Furthermore, Crutcher’s sister states, “The video showed
Juana could not believe that the pearl had made him do such a thing. She had no idea that an object like that could change a man, showing off his greed, “All the time Juana had been trying to rescue something of the old peace, of the time before the pearl.” (page 61). It is good to think of the furture of your family but to harm of of them so that the furture does not get spoiled is wrong. Kino had also killed a man that tried to steal it from him. Kino did not know the furture of what would happen.
