Overview:

Adnan's Story: The Search for Truth and Justice After Serial : <p>In early 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. Syed has maintained his innocence, and Rabia Chaudry, a family friend, has always believed him. By 2013, after almost all appeals had been exhausted, Rabia contacted Sarah Koenig, a producer at <i>This American Life</i>, in hopes of finding a journalist who could shed light on Adnan's story. In 2014, Koenig's investigation turned into <i>Serial</i>, a Peabody Award-winning podcast with more than 500 million international listeners</p><p>But <i> Serial</i> did not tell the whole story. In this compelling narrative, Rabia Chaudry presents new key evidence that she maintains dismantles the State's case: a potential new suspect, forensics indicating Hae was killed and kept somewhere for almost half a day, and documentation withheld by the State that destroys the cell phone evidence -- among many other points -- and she shows how fans of <i>Serial</i> joined a crowd-sourced investigation into a case riddled with errors and strange twists. <i>Adnan's Story</i> also shares Adnan's life in prison, and weaves in his personal reflections, including never-before-seen letters. Chaudry, who is committed to exonerating Adnan, makes it clear that justice is yet to be achieved in this much examined case.</p>
