Putting these circumstances aside, it was said by many that the relationship was pretty typical and Adnan got over the breakup easily. This was said by teachers and friends of both Hae and Adnan. One of Hae’s friends, Becky, explained the relationship as “just a silly, teenage, high school, relationship” (Koenig “The Breakup”) which proves that Adnan was not as upset as the prosecution made him out to be at trial. Another notable aspect is that after Hae and Adnan broke up, Hae got in a small car accident and asked Adnan to come help her, her new boyfriend Don also showed up and confirms that him and Adnan had a cordial meeting and explains that they talked for 10 to 15 minutes even after the car situation had been figured out (Koenig “What We Know”). If Adnan was really that broken up about the breakup, he would not have been so friendly towards the new guy who seemed to take his place in Hae’s life.
These two reasons are all that a person should need to believe that Adnan didn't have enough motive, or time, to kill Hae. 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.
Introduction Context: Senior of Woodlawn High School, Adnan Syed, was convicted and charged with the first-degree murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. Not only is Adnan’s alibi inconclusive, but he also fails to recall any specific details or occurrences of January 13, 1999. His acquaintance, Jay Wilds, has served as the State’s key witness against Adnan. Thesis Statement:
Adnan says it was just a normal day to him. During one of his interviews, Adnan talks about it was normal for him to leave school to do something and then come back and go to track practice ( Koenig, “The Breakup”). If your ex-girlfriend went missing you would think that you would remember what had happened that day, but that 's not the case with Adnan. Adnan has at least some idea of what he did but he isn’t 100% sure that 's what he did, which in a way makes him look guilty because he doesn’t remember what happened that day. I understand from listening to Jay’s story that he has changed what he had said many times and some of what he had changed is a big deal.
And people who would have come into contact with Adnan that afternoon were not experts in detecting slight changes in Adnan. Jays saying Adana called him to pick him up from best buy and when he got there Adnan was at the phone booth talking, but sarah got blueprints of best buy and they was never one built. Why did jay lie?or if it lack of memory.? Inclusion Adnan couldn't have a motive in killing hae. I believe that Adnan is innocent and didn't kill Hae Min Lee.
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.
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
The stories Jay told the police had complications since it kept changing from one detail to another. In Jay’s first interrogation, he mentioned that he was shopping with a friend, whom we later recognized as Adnan, and this friend said that he was going to kill someone. Jay asked Adnan for a ride to buy a gift for his girlfriend, and coincidentally Adnan left his phone in his own car with Jay promising him a call. It is an imperative scenario because this is where Jay claimed that Adnan left to kill Hae. Later that day, Jay asserted that he received a call from Adnan saying that Hae was dead and he should pick him up at Best Buy.
First off, lets start off with Adnan’s alibi and what he was doing after school at the time of Hae’s murder. In the beginning of the time Adnan spent in jail, Adnan received letters from a girl called Aisah McClain. Let me just say first that Aisah and Adnan weren 't best friends or played important roles in each other’s lives, at all. Aisah McClain had nothing to benefit from writing these letters to Adnan. These letters indicate that Aisah had seen Adnan in the library right across
No one in public saw the two together when the prosecution is trying to place them together. The claims aren 't even really contradictory. No one is saying Adnan got in Hae 's car. The only supporting piece to his possible guilt would be that he asked for a ride. That 's it.
A young boy name Adnan syed has been jailed for six-teen year because he was found guilty for murder of his ex girlfriend Hae Min Lee. A woman named Sarah kogen reopened Adnan Syed case after fifteen years of serving jail. it is obvious that Adnan Syed is not guilty because the evidence that was found was not tested. Also prosecutor jay was caught lying and keep changing his history.
It seems to me that Jay slightly changes his story every time. I don’t know why Jay would agree to help Adnan with Hae 's body. Jay is hiding something, no normal person would help someone with a dead body. Jay seems very sketchy, he admits to the police that he has lied on many accounts on his statements. He claimed at one point that he let Adnan use his shovels, why would you let someone that you are barely friends with use your shovels to bury a body?
Another reason why Adnan is innocent is Jay, Adnan 's long time “buddy”. Jay already seemed like a person who most people wouldn 't trust, Jay smoked and deals marijuana, many people saw him as a dark person and Jay even said he was a criminal person (). One of the biggest points was when Jay was in court and he was changing his story every time, like when he was asked if he helped Adnan bury the body, at first he said no he only watched but after awhile he said he helped bury and he even got the shovels and and hid them(). I feel like Jay was changing the stories on purpose because the cops told him if he pinned it on Adnan he won 't get in any trouble because he said he helped the murder and admitted to smoking and selling weed ().
