Syed repeats his innocence by saying, “I had no reason to kill her” (Koenig Episode 1). Murder is the result of a violent drive or hatred from an individual. Adnan did not have this drive. Although many theories have led to the conviction of Adnan Syed, the insufficient evidence supporting his guilt lacked reason, consistency, and reliability leaving the possibility behind of a third person being involved, a serial killer. One of the hardest things to fathom is what drove Adnan to strangle Hae.
In the book “In Cold Blood” by Truman Capote, Capote blantly describes the murderous acts of two men who killed an entire family they knew nothing about. The Clutters were good people who had no intention on hurting anyone. Dick and Perry, the murderers, had no reason to do this, meaning they had no motive for these actions and they can not be excused for their actions. In the beginning of the book, Capote introduces everyone to the Clutter Family, and a few pages further into the book he introduces everyone to Dick Hickock and Perry Smith. The Clutter family includes the Mr. and Mrs. Clutter and their four wonderful children.
During Perry Smith’s confession, he told the authorities that he singlehandedly killed all four Clutters. Perry does not have a motive for the murders. Therefore, Perry decides to blame his actions on the animosity he has for his past. “They [the Clutters] never hurt me. Like other people.
Only one of those things has the greatest chance of being a conspiracy murder, and that is the assassination. William Morrow wrote in 1994 that Leon Chandler thought that Lewis was a victim of an assassination conspiracy, and of course it was Jefferson who wanted him dead. Lewis had discovered secrets about Jefferson and Jefferson thought that he would go to Washington and snitch, and Jefferson had a reputation to keep so what better than to kill the man that could ruin your
The final purpose of writing In Cold Blood is hypocrisy of conventionalism. Death penalty is for murderers. The remaining question is ‘It is not fine for someone to murder someone else while the government can kill a person as a punishment?’ Before Perry was executed, he said, “I do not believe in capital punishment, morally or legally” (340). Capote truly wanted to tell the readers how hypocritical the government is on punishing people who are legally
He is portrayed as a mastermind in the cold-blooded killing of the Clutters family, a man with little respect for the lives of others, which can be seen through Dick’s expression before the murder of the Clutters when he converses Perry, “We’re gonna go in there and splatter those walls with hair” (Capote 234). This sudden tone shift enables Capote to depict Dick as a cruel and immoral character. Dick’s lack of empathy and concern for other people beside himself allow him to commit crimes without remorse, which is in contrast to Perry’s moral contemplation after each bad actions they committed. Moreover, Dick is represented as the true criminal with evident motives in murdering the Clutters, while Perry is seen as a vulnerable victim who depends on Dick for validation and acceptance, something in which Dick happily provides in order to manipulate Perry, as Capote writes, “Dick became convinced that Perry was that rarity, ‘a natural born killer,’—absolutely sane but conscienceless, and capable of dealing with or without motive, the coldest-blooded deathblows. It was Dick's theory that such a gift could, under his supervision, be profitably exploited” (Capote 205).
Truman Capote demonstrates the trial in his book In Cold Blood. On November 15, 1959, Perry Smith and Richard Hickcock both, broke into the Clutter’s home hoping to find a safe. Unfortunately, there was no safe and Richard who was the mastermind behind this massacre felt best to murder the witnesses so they wouldn’t go to the police the next day. Richard Hickcock and his companion
Dick is a psychopath, that he can go about his day, unphased by his actions. Capote goes on about Dick’s day, which seems to be a laundry list, and enhances the fact that Dick is more blameworthy for the situation. Perry is perceived as an instrument in the hands of Dick. Perry is being used by Dick to commit the crime, even though Perry did not have the intention of killing the family; Mr. Capote makes this evident in the fact that each of killers responds to murdering the family in unlike ways. Truman Capote exemplifies the fact that Dick is more guilty than Perry by separating the murderers, and all in all, not all murderers are comparably
But he is the villian in the end.Agatha Chritie makes us feel like there is no villian at all.Judge Wargrave changes his personalty from the begging to the end.At first he seems nice,then he seems like the percfet hero,but at the need he is an evil person who wanted to kill people who were wrong and accidnet or purposaly killed other pople.The judge says in the book,I have wanted-let me admit it frankly-to commit a murder myslef.” That shows us that he really was evil the whole time and not the person he said or seemed to be. This passage allows the read to see that Judge Wargrave is not the hero but truly an evil
Gertrude states to Hamlet that there is no ghost and that he has gone crazy. This clearly shows that Hamlet has gone insane and that everyone knows it but him (220-2223). For instance, Charlie Mason infamous serial killer states to the public that his murders are justifiable because he was doing it because god request him to do it in order to satisfy him. Similarity, to Hamlet who believes that he should kill Claudius because see he saw a ghost that looked
In the wake of listening to it, they flipped the tape over and found a recorded discussion in which Myers griped intensely that he was being compelled to frame McMillian, whom he didn 't have the faintest idea, for a crime neither of them had any part in. Further examination uncovered that McMillian 's had just been changed over to a "Low-rider" six months after the crime occurred, and that prosecutors had disguised data around a witness who had seen the casualty alive after the time the prosecutors asserted that McMillian had killed her. The two witnesses who had affirmed that they had seen McMillian 's truck withdrawn their affirmation, and conceded that they lied at trial. On February 23, 1993, the Alabama Court of Criminal Appeals turned around McMillian 's conviction and requested another trial. On March 2, 1993, prosecutors rejected charges against McMillian and he was discharged.
Thomas and Edward were each charged with Richard 's murder. At trial, they pleaded the defense of necessity, saying that it had been necessary to slaughter Richard so that they could have a chance at surviving since there were no was no food or water left on the
Suddenly you’re thrust into a murder trial, and you’re the main suspect. This horror is Adnan Syed’s reality. Wrongfully accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee in 1999, Adnan Syed should be released due to conviction by uncreditable evidence, unclear witness statements, and unfair representation. First off, Adnan could not have committed this crime because the 2:36 “kill time” is basically impossible with Adnan’s alibi(Koenig, “Route Talk”). There was a very small window of time for Adnan to commit the murder and make the call at 2:36.
The police officers asked the employers if they had seen anything suspicious and they told the officers that they were not able to clean the upper floors. They became suspicious of that afterwards, so they went to the upper floors to check it out. They then realized what they had discovered, they saw the torture chamber holmes used to kill his victims. Holmes was first charged with insurance scams and then later on he was charged for first degree murder of Benjamin Pitezel.
