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

On January 13, 1999, a girl named Hae Min Lee disappeared. She was a senior at Woodlawn High School in Baltimore County in Maryland. Born in South Korea, Hae Min Lee migrated to the United States along with her mother and brother to live with her grandparents. She played field hockey and lacrosse. At age 18, Hae Min Lee was reported missing by her family after she was supposed to pick up her little cousin from kindergarten around 3:15 PM and drop her home, but she never showed up. Weeks later on February 1, an anonymous call was made to the Baltimore County Police suggesting that Adnan Syed, Hae’s ex-boyfriend was responsible for her death. The investigation showed that although Lee had been dating Syed for the past year, they had recently broken up. Furthering
Two drunken white men raped a young black girl, Tonya Hailey, who was walking from a small store where she bought groceries. When the news reached her father, Carl Lee Hailey, he went to their hearing, where he shot and killed the two men, while also wounding a police officer. Carl Lee hires a white attorney, Jake Brigance, to represent him in court. Many people and organizations, such as the Ku Klux Klan, tried to sabotage Brigance’s likelihood of winning the case. With the help of a liberal law student, Brigance successfully acquitted Carl Lee Hailey for the murders of the two rapists.

The murder of Hae Min Lee was a mind twisting case. When listening to the podcast, you are left to wonder about who is guilty and who is innocent. With all of the evidence in this case, I am left to believe Adnan Syed is innocent. There are many facts that lead people to believe that he is guilty. However, some of the evidence doesn’t line up. Adnan has an alibi, the crime doesn’t fit the time frame that he had, and Jay had inconsistencies in his stories about Adnan, so the question is was he actually telling the truth. Adnan doesn’t remember very much about the day of Hae’s murder, and if he actually did commit the crime, you would remember that day perfectly.

The case of Hae Min Lee was originally only prominent within Baltimore County of Maryland. It has the trappings of a typical high school murder; a teen is angry at their ex-boyfriend/girlfriend for breaking up with them and as a result, would murder them. However, the case has gained international attention largely due to the investigations from Serial, which revealed an abnormal number of inconsistencies within the case against Adnan Syed. Eventually, this attention culminated into the granting of a new trial for Adnan. Adnan is most likely guilty because of circumstantial evidence that demonstrate Adnan’s guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. After all, the use of circumstantial evidence is valid if a reasonable argument can be created. Although,
Is adnan syed the killer of the 1999 murder of Hae Min Lee? Hae Min Lee was killed one afternoon after school and her body was left in leakin park. Adnan and Hae just broke up so he would be an easy suspect because he would know her schedule best and he would know how to hide it. Her body was left in Leakin park Mr.S found her body a while after being missing for a week and called 911 . I feel Adnan Syed is innocent in all of the cases against Adnan there is a missing piece to all of the stories. First The motive was too easy they thought so they broke up that could be the reason why he killed her because he was so full of rage and sadness. This motive seems as though he had no other reason for killing her, it is just that two unfortunate events happened so close the motive seems
Throughout the history, immigration and the United States are inextricably linked. The United States has promulgated many immigration legislations in the past either to restrict or support the immigration. Immigration is still going on and it is a debatable issue even today. In the interview, Chang-rae Lee says, “I’m interested in people who find themselves in places, either of their choosing or not, and who are forced to decide how best to live there. That feeling of both citizenship and exile, of always being an expatriate-with all the attendant problems and complications and delight”(Garner 2). Chang-rae Lee exposes the inner and outer conflicts the immigrants go through in the United States with
