Did he do it?

I'd buy this before that Steven Avery tale.

The subject of the first season of the "Serial" podcast and the follow up "Undisclosed" podcast.

@2LEM1, I don't think he did it. At minimum there's A TON of reasonable doubt and the defense attorney did not do an adequate job.

HBO just had a 4 part documentary about it.

The short version is that he was convicted of murdering his High School sweetheart and there is zero physical evidence, just a statement by a less-than-upstanding individual that has changed multiple times over the years, yet for some reason despite the total lack of evidence and the indisputable amount of reasonable doubt involved in the case, he has had multiple appeals refused or overturned.

I listened to the podcast a while back. Pretty interesting stuff, but after all that, the end of the podcast still didn't have anything definitive.

I think this show is supposed to be the continuation.

As ford9n said, while he appears that he did it, that's not the point. So far (from what I've heard in the podcast), it isn't provable beyond a reasonable doubt.

I think he and Jay both had a part in it, but

He’s maintained innocence because he always thought he’d be able to appeal his sentence and get out. He can’t snitch on Jay because he’d have to fulfill his sentence. Also won’t talk because of his family/community.

I work by the Best Buy and Woodlawn high, so that initially got me intrigued in all this when Serial came out.

I am more on the side of he didn't do it but there isn't any real evidence to convict him.

It was all a cluster Fck for sure.

I think it's a botched case by the BMD.

No but something very similar happened to someone in my in-law circle.

Dude ratted him out (if he did it) and knew all these details (the car, the locations) and it seemed like Adnan never knew any of it. Idk how the cops didn't pin it on Jay, or at least try both of them. Jay knew way too much to be an accessory after the murder.

There are tons of Muslims in India but yes you're right. They're Hindus.
