NOW A MAJOR HBO DOCUSERIES

'The first letter I received after being arrested in 1999 was from Rabia. Since that time until now, she has believed in my innocence and been committed to my exoneration. . . . [T]here is no one better to help tell my story, and no one that I trust more to tell it, than Rabia.' Adnan Syed

On February 28, 2000, Adnan Syed was convicted and sentenced to life plus thirty years for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee, a high school senior in Baltimore, Maryland. From the moment of his arrest, Syed has consistently maintained his innocence. Rabia Chaudry, a family friend, always believed him and has never given up the hope that he might someday be released. By 2013, however, after almost all appeals had been exhausted, things looked bleak. That's when Rabia contacted Sarah Koenig, a producer at This American Life, in the hopes of finding a journalist who would bring greater attention to Adnan's story and might shed new light on the case. Koenig's investigation turned into Serial, an international phenomenon and Peabody Award-winning podcast.

Adnan's Story will reexamine the investigation that led to Adnan Syed’s arrest, share his life in prison, cover new evidence and possibilities that have since come to light, and review the recent court successes - including a ruling by a Maryland judge to reopen Syed’s case. Woven with personal reflections from Adnan himself, including new never-before-seen letters he penned from prison, the story of his family, community, and public advocate Chaudry, the book offers new insight into the story that captivated the attention of millions as his legal team and investigatory team, along with countless others who have crowd-sourced an investigation like never before, seek to exonerate him and find out the truth of what really happened on that day in 1999.

What has captivated the public about Adnan's story are the layers of contradictions, fascinating characters, cultural dissonance, and fog of ambiguity around what really happened to Hae Min Lee. But this is not just a personal story, it is a testament to a thoroughly broken system that convicts tens of thousands of innocent people, and how the power of the media and public can move rigid institutions to bring about justice.

This looks amazing.Thank you.


I thought it was a really good read and found the whole story fascinating...particularly if the investigation was as incompetent as it's portrayed
Thanks OP, will pick this up

Agree. Everyone should listen to the Serial podcast before watching the TV series, IMO. I’m not usually one for podcasts, but Serial is addictive and so well done.

Don't put money in this woman's pocket for Christs sake. She's mental and has no proof whatsoever that he's not guilty.

Lol, just as there was little proof that he was guilty, just a version of events by a guy who kept changing his story and was probably told what to say

I think the podcast concluded with there was no way to say Adnan was innocent, but equally that the case against him was flawed. I thought that was fair

Remember in the US, you have to be proven guilty without a shadow of doubt. All the bias, inconclusive facts against him due to ethnicity and faith means its a mistral end of.

Its been years since the podcast. It missed a lot of things out which point to his guilt.

Also missed a lot of things that suggest his innocence (undisclosed podcast, anyone?) Like I said, the conclusion I felt was fair and probably still stands. Anyway, just like many things it comes down to opinion. Mine is no more valid than anyone elses.

What, the podcast hosted by his lawyer?! You really think that's an objective podcast? People far more experienced that you or I find Rabia laughable on every level.

You don’t have to prove you are not guilty. Otherwise we could all go around saying anything about people - e.g. “My neighbour murdered Mrs Jane Doe. There is no proof that she’s not guilty. Lock her up.” By the same logic, someone could argue you did it, if you can’t prove you didn’t...

That’s irrelevant now. Yes he got a bad trial but there’s no doubt the correct person is locked up and that’s why he wasn’t given a retrial.

How is there no doubt? There are multiple things that don’t add up in Jay’s story, which is what it is at the end if the day, a story, and the cell tower evidence was inaccurate. Why didn’t the police ever run the DNA tests? Seriously suspect policing. Why didn’t his lawyer present Asia as a witness? If Adnan had given the story Jay did, you/people would be saying Jay did it. We don’t know for sure who did it, but there is no doubt that the policing and the trial was flawed throughout, and everyone deserves a fair trial. Arguably, the reason so many people are refused a retrial is because the state/government then has to take responsibility and acknowledge that they f*cked up in the original trial, in addition to the fact it costs the state money.

The fact is, his guilt is well beyond reasonable doubt. That’s all it needs to be.
