Description

The physical evidence against Adnan Syed was scant - a few underwhelming fingerprints. So aside from cell records, what did the prosecutors bring to the jury, to shore up Jay's testimony? Sarah weighs all the other circumstantial evidence they had against Adnan, including curious behavior, a disconcerting note, and an unexplained mid-afternoon phone call.

So I am confused about the Nisha call. Was it made during school hours? Or after school? Because Adnad is supposed to be in school when this call happened. So if she is in highschool wouldnt she have also been in school.

I feel like up to this point, she has painted he is an innocent picture. I feel like I can not really give an unbiased opinion at this point cause I do not have anything he has done wrong. Ive only got a single side of the story.

The cases where the evidence is circumstantial is bothersome. A person with a motive can call the police and create a situation where someone is guilty. I do agree that the narrator seems to believe that Adnon is innocent. The evidence doesn’t show his guilt but thats only my opinion. So the states case is Jays story, cell phone activity and Anon not having a clear indication of his activities of the day of the murder. Its easy to decide guilt or innocence by all the different variations of how someone answers questions. But where was there any DNA, not even a hair. Some murders are almost perfect which makes me think its because evil is definitely a definitive in our world. If Adnon did commit this gruesome act. Also, we all have a perception of how a murderer should behave. But some psychopaths have families, “normal” lives and are in plain site. My point is that anybody can snap, make a decision to kill and not have shown angry, dangerous or erratic behavior.

The fact that is devoted Muslim and this event "happened" during Ramadan tilts the scale against the prosecution's story.

Lenny L what has Ramadan got to do with it? Are you saying that during religious events people are either more or less inclined to commit murder? That doesn't make sense to me? please elaborate.

The way he answers questions,way he responds to "major "minor" things and everything in between makes me think he did it but 90% of what ive heard so far says he didnt but without a doubt i can not say beyond reasonable that he is guilty therefore he is innocent

the problem that I have with this is how biased she is. it's so clear she thinks he is innocent so she's twisting and skewing the information to influence the audience.

he's guilty. no doubt about it. you can tell by his tone of voice, the way he answers the questions etc. He lies and bullshits his way through it all, and you can tell he is evil. I hope he pays for taking her life with his...

Amanda Imhoff punishing murder with murder in any context is just as wrong. Innocent people have been executed and I think that risk is not worth taking. That's why it was abolished here in UK. The evidence here as a whole just does not prove beyond any and all reasonable doubt. How one person interprets what another says and the way they say it can be wildly different hence 12 jurors. I don't interpret lies from Adnan. Just my 2pennies worth.
