We believe that Jay is guilty. In the next five minutes we will prove to you that Adnan is in fact innocent and why Jay should be in jail. Adnan was close friends with Jay’s girlfriend Stephanie which is what we believe Jay’s motive was to murder Hae. The court convicted Adnan of the murder with the motive of being jealous of Hae’s new relationship. We argue that the motive of jealousy was what made Jay kill Hae Min Lee.
or something. And I sat down next to him. We starting chatting,” by Asia Mclean. This piece of evidence gives Adnan an abili to where he was after school and it causes us to believe that he couldn’t have killed Hae. The final piece of evidence Adnan and how he was during the
Firstly, the Nisha call placed Adnan with Jay after the murder. This call could have been a butt-dial that rang for 2 minutes. The call could have been from Adnan, who wanted to make Jay talk with Nisha. The Nisha call does not prove Adnan killed Hae, as it simply just puts him with Jay at the time. Also, the prosecution stated that Adnan was constantly doing bad things. Everyone does bad things, but it does not make them murderers. Finally, Jay knew the location of Hae’s car. The fact that Jay knew the location of Hae’s car should arouse suspicion on him. The evidence utilized by the prosecution is circumstantial and can be disproved, and the lack of strong evidence proves Adnan’s
Think about how often people get arrested and how often trials are held every year, let alone every day. Oftentimes, innocent people are accused and charged for a crime that wasn’t their fault. This was the case for Adnan Syed, an innocent guy who was put in jail for a murder case. On January 13, 1999, Hae Min Lee was murdered at the age of 17. The evidence in 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
When someone is innocent, they aren’t blamed for a crime, and when someone is guilty, they are blamed. So, would Adnan Syed be innocent or guilty, for being accused of murdering Hae Min Lee? The podcast Serial is narrated by Sarah Koenig, which is about a man named Adnan Syed who was put in jail for “killing” a woman named Hae Mine Lee. Adnan’s ex-friend, Jay, accused and turned in Adnan into the police, stating that Adnan killed Hae. Because of this, Adnan was convicted of first-degree murder and was sentenced to life. After investigating the case, it is clear that Adnan is innocent because he had a good relationship with Hae after the breakup, he was a good student, and there was no trace of Adnan that showed he killed Hae.
Some of the details that Jay knew were impossible for anyone not involved in the crime to know. Jay claims that he went with Adnan to hide Hae’s car. The police later asked him where it was. “He took them to where the car was. That’s a huge thing right there.” (Koenig 8) This piece of information is huge, and completes the entire story for the police. The consistency here is the straw that broke the camel’s back, the camel being Adnan. The police said that they always suspected Adnan, of course, because he was the ex-boyfriend. Jay’s story clicked right in. When he knew where the car was left, it was the biggest thing that proved that Jay wasn’t lying and that Adnan did murder Hae. Jay had to have been with Adnan when Adnan left the car, or else Jay wouldn’t had known where the car
A lot of people wonder if Adnan Syed is guilty or innocent, today as a legal assistant I'm going to tell you one important reason why he is innocent. Adnan is not guilty because there is another potential suspect like Jay. Jay's story that "proves" Adnan's guilt, has changed every interview and testimony. Jay had intimate knowledge of the crime he knew things, like if he knew every single thing that Adnan was thinking about which makes everything looked suspicious. Also Jay's stories don't quite match Adnan's cell records.
Jay’s account of the story incriminates Adnan as the murderer of Hae. Jay starts off his statement with a conversation that was between him and Adnan. Jay claims that while shopping with Adnan he told him, “he was going to kill that bitch.” Adnan then leaves his car and cell phone with Jay so he can come pick him up after he had killed Hae. Later that afternoon Jay receives a call from Adnan, who tells him, “That bitch is dead. Come and get me. I’m at Best Buy.” Jay claims that when he arrives to pick up Adnan, he is shown Hae’s dead body which is in the back of the car. Jays says that he then drives Adnan back to school so he will have an alibi for Hae’s murder. After track practice Jay says he picked Adnan back up and drove him to Lincoln
There has been a lot of speculation and internal conflict as to who committed Hae’s murder. At some points, I thought that surely Adnan had done it. However at other points, there was no way that he had killed her. Based on the lack of physical evidence against him, I do not believe that Adnan committed the murder.
A slight time after the arrest, Asia composed and sent a few letters to Adnan. These letters revealed that Asia claimed to see Adnan in the library on January 13th. However, a short period later she declared that “She’d only written it because she was getting pressure from the family” (Koenig, “The Alibi”). Adnan was again left without an alibi because it is clear that Asia did not see him in the library that specific day. Hae was just a typical teenager before she was murdered, meaning she had a diary. The diary was “entered into evidence at the trial”, so Sarah Koenig had the opportunity to grasp a copy(Koenig, “The Breakup”). Several of the entries were complaints about Adnan. The couple seemed to posses many issues. Hae mentions that Adnan constantly reminds her that she “is against his religion.” He even goes the distance to call her “a devil a few times”(Koenig, “The Breakup”). Messages Hae left behind in her diary prove that Adnan had a rational for murdering her. Every student is guilty of passing notes in the course of their school years. Adnan and Aisha were no different. They decided to have a conversation where “they were joking, making fun of Hae, making fun of themselves” (Koenig, “The Case Against Adnan Syed”). Upon reviewing the note, the words “I’m going to kill” were found on top of the page in Adnan’s handwriting. Aisha doesn’t recall those frightening words being written during the original time of the note. She stated that while reading the note at the trial, it was her first time seeing that part. Adnan obviously made plans to murder Hae Min Lee on his own because the note was found while searching his house (Koenig, “The Case Against Adnan Syed”). Because of the written proof of tension between Hae and Adnan, there was obvious frustration, which was a motive for Adnan Syed to commit the
First, Adnan did not get a fair trial because Jay lied during his trial.,the phone record prove nothing and Neither do the letters.Jay lied during his trail because, in episode
This suggest that Adnan could not be the killer but the only one with a strong enough case for conviction. But what if there was someone that the police didn’t know about that did kill Hae or the police didn’t even notice because they were building their case?
I am first going to talk about the evidence the state had against Adnan. They had Adnan’s timeline, they had cell phone records, they kind of had a motive. I am going to start with Adnan’s timeline of his day. Adnan got to school, carried on with a normal day, until around 10:45 a.m.. Adnan let Jay borrow his car because he needed to get his girlfriend a birthday present. Jay ended up having the car all day. So, according to Adnan’s story, he was with Jay during his lunch and free period. He would've left the school at approximately 10:45 a.m. and returned around 11:15 or 11:30 a.m.. His day continues on, late to his psychology class. At around 2:15 he went to the library to check his email, he was there until 3:30. Meaning he wouldn’t of been
“She stood and looked him face to face and told him that she didn’t love him and that he was heartless. After that Adnan told me “ I think I am going to kill her, yeah, I’m going to kill her. ”(Season 1, Episode 2, Page 36). This proves that he is guilty because he had spoken to Jay about killing Hae days before the murder. This proves that he very much had the intent to kill Hae Min Lee, also classifying it as a premeditated murder.
Wilds, a former friend of Adnan Syed, claims that Adnan had killed Hae. Wild’s story goes as follows: On the day of Hae’s disappearance, Adnan gives Jay his phone and his car so Jay could pick him up after he had done the “deed”. Adnan was to ask Hae if he could have a ride home, since his car was broken down. Adnan calls after the murder has been committed for Jay to come pick him up at Best Buy, which Jay does. Jay and Adnan then proceed to drive around for a while before Jay returns Adnan back to track practice. After track practice, both people bury Hae in Leakin Park. There are many holes within Jay’s story. In fact, his story changes at least 6 times. Detectives taped two of Jay’s interviews out of four, stories told in these interviews do not match up. The most prominent lie Jay has told in his interviews is where Adnan had first revealed Hae’s body in the trunk of her car. The first time he says that this happened on Edmonson Avenue and the next time he says that it was at Best Buy. One interview Jay states that Westview mall was where him and Adnan went on January, 13; the next interview Jay claims they went to Security Square Mall. Wilds has also lied about his participation in Hae’s murder, at first he says he didn’t help Adnan bury Hae and he just dropped him off somewhere, but then he says he did help him with Hae’s
