8 Lessons From the New "Serial" Episode


Adnan's chances of ever facing legal charges from the state are minimal at best.

After spent 23 years in prison for the murder of Hae Min Lee, Adnan Syed was freed on Monday after a Baltimore judge reversed the case.

The case against Syed, who is now 41, was given to the prosecutors 30 days to decide whether to pursue a fresh trial or withdraw the charges.

The following are the key lessons from the most recent episode of "Serial": The prosecution is not asserting Adnan Syed's innocence.

When Syed was detained for killing Lee, he was 17 years old. n Syed's extensive case file, Feldman found handwritten notes that suggested additional suspects.

According to the notes, two distinct callers gave the State's Attorney's Office information about the same person, who they claim had a reason to kill Lee, during the course of two phone calls.

He would both "murder her" and "make her vanish." Feldman said that the state has determined the accuracy of the information in these notes.

Currently doing time in prison for sexual assault is one of the suspects. One is associated with the spot where Lee vanished.

Feldman submits a motion for eviction. Feldman submitted a move to vacate the judgement due to the "bouquet of issues" in Syed's case.

The "star witness" Jay Wilds, a high school classmate of Syed's who testified that Syed killed Lee and showed the state her body, will be remembered by "Serial" listeners.

Over the course of the investigation, three different locations were claimed by Wilds to be where Syed allegedly showed him Lee's body.

Although the state was aware that Wilds' testimony was suspect at the time, they used mobile phone records to support it.
