Its Baltimore, 2022. Adnan Syed has spent the last 23 years incarcerated, serving a life sentence for the murder of Hae Min Lee, a crime he says he didnt commit. He has exhausted every legal avenue for relief, including a petition to the United States Supreme Court. But then, a prosecutor in the Baltimore States Attorneys office stumbled upon two handwritten notes in Adnans case file, and they changed everything.

A potential alibi surfaces and then disappears again, at the worst possible time for Adnans case.

Friends say Adnan was sad when Hae dumped him, but not crazy sad - normal sad. The prosecutors say he was rage-filled and vengeful. Which is it?

Three weeks after Hae goes missing, a man discovers her body in the middle of a city forest. But his story is strange and his past is even stranger. Did he really just stumble on her by accident?

The detectives get a lead that opens the case up for them. They bring Jay in for questioning and he tells them the story of January 13th. But then, a few weeks later, his story changes.

Adnan once issued a challenge to Sarah: Recreate the states timeline of the murder by driving from Woodlawn High School to Best Buy in 21 minutes. It cant be done, he said. So, we tried.

Sarah weighs all the other circumstantial evidence prosecutors had against Adnan, including curious behavior, a dramatic note, and an unexplained mid-afternoon phone call.

Sarah learned about another case with striking similarities to Adnans: a key witness, cell records, young people, drugs. So she called up the defense attorney on that case looking for insight, and got much more than she bargained for.

The states case hinged on Jays credibility; he was their star witness and also their chief liability. So how did the jury make sense of Jay? How do we make sense of Jay?

New information is coming in about what maybedidnthappen on January 13, 1999.

Adnans trial lawyer was a renowned defense attorney in Maryland  tough and savvy and smart. Exactly the kind of person youd want defending you. But Adnan was convicted and she was disbarred. What happened?

Almost everyone described 17-year-old Adnan the same way: good kid, helpful at the mosque, respectful to his elders. But a couple of months ago, Sarah started hearing stories of a different kind of boy.

After 15 months of reporting, we take out everything weve got - interviews and documents and police reports - we shake it all out, and we see what sticks.

In the years since season one concluded, Sarah Koenig wroteupdates about important developmentsin the case. In 2015, the cell phone expert who testified at Adnan Syeds trial saidhe no longer stood behind his testimony. In 2016, Adnans attorney introduced new evidence and presented a case for why his conviction should be overturned.Serialcovered what happened, day by day, in the three audio updates below. In 2019, Marylands highest courtreversed a decision to give Adnan a new trial.

In 2022, a prosecutor in the Baltimore States Attorneys office stumbled upon two handwritten notes in Adnans case file. They changed everything.

On October 11, 2022, prosecutors dropped the charges, and Adnan is now free. Police are continuing to investigate. We are done reporting this story, but are sure others will continue to follow it. As they do,heres what well be looking for.

A high-school senior named Hae Min Lee disappeared one day after school in 1999, in Baltimore County, Maryland. A month later, her body was found in a city park. Shed been strangled. Her 17-year-old ex-boyfriend, Adnan Syed, was arrested for the crime, and within a year, he was sentenced to life in prison. The case against him was largely based on the story of one witness, Adnans friend Jay, who testified that he helped Adnan bury Haes body. But Adnan has always maintained he had nothing to do with Haes death. Some people believe hes telling the truth. Many others dont.

Sarah Koenig sorted through thousands of documents, listened to trial testimony and police interrogations, and talked to everyone she could find who remembered what happened between Adnan Syed and Hae Min Lee. She discovered that the trial covered up a far more complicated story than the jury or the public ever got to hear. The high school scene, the shifting statements to police, the prejudices, the sketchy alibis, the scant forensic evidence all of it leads back to the most basic questions: How can you know a persons character? How can you tell what theyre capable of? In Season One ofSerial, she looks for answers.
