I think Jay did it.
The one thing that sticks with me is the fact that he called Jay pathetic at court
the ending was/is busllshit!!!!!!!!! I invested MANY hours of listening. why tell a story when there is no ending???!!!???
when it comes down to it Jay has a better memory of what happened that day which seems more like he has more to hide to remember all these things over adnan not remembering as much as an ordinary day... Plus Jay had his car and his phone Jay said so
Cant believe you never had an episode after the end of the hearing...... Wondering if I should listen to the others
I agree with Nathan Sarah. I didn't know your name was Sarah, but now I know. You have a great way of narrating a story. Every time I finish one I can't wait to listen to the next
just to reflect on season 1. Why would a jury or the police believe Jay after he was caught in so many lies? They should have had a 2nd mistrial because of the prosecutors suggesting a lawyer to represent him. That lawyer was working harder then if he picked up any other random case. For the prosecution. This case didn't have enough evidence from the get go, especially not to be bound over to circuit court. This case was put together by 1 persons statement. Jay.
The question I have is, why did Jay know we're the car was and why we're his shovels used? So syed came to him and not only did he help, but he also brung his own tools (shovel). That makes me believe that Jay was more involved then he claims. Maybe they both did it, and Jay's just dragging the idea that syed will admit he did it and tell the whole story of what actually happened. Maybe they both did it together. Aaand another thing, there seems ti be a lot of bud smoking going on during when the crime actually took place and afterward. I'm a weed smoker. Daily sometimes. I would be paranoid as hell if I was smoking weed, and I just commit that kind of crime. When your high it just magnifies your thoughts. That's not a big deal poker a case breaker, I't just made me think they were peetty calm after allegedly committing a murder. idk... I have a bunch of theories and questions about this case.
Grim insights into our criminal justice system
I live 40 miles east of Cleveland and hearing all of this has been truly heartbreaking and completely disgusting. I can't believe how terrible the crimes are that go unreported and how crooked most of our cops and judicial system have become. so very sad, all around
Fantastic thank you
Anna got screwed. That sergeant was an ass hole & should never have taken her to jail. He knew what happened because that lady said what happened to her. Anna was sexually assaulted & also an officer calling her sweetheart is inappropriate. no officer should EVER call a woman sweetheart.
this is the second time i listened a couple if years apart. he's guilty. I interviewed enough witnesses over ten years Sounds like he's really trying to convince the hostess.
what about the other witnesses? her boyfriend at the time and his friend?
I don't Kno how voicemail worked in 99 but I personally never set up my voicemail and I learned from a friend that she has left me voicemails,so I finally set it up and I had a ton of old voicemails. I'm not sure how all phones work but just a thought. love the podcast
Jen and Jay hands down.
Jay is a sociopath. Tried to stab his friend for fun. punching people randomly. He's creating a dominant and unpredictable atmosphere for the people around him. That's control. The fact that he was "alpha, sweet, and goofy" shows he had different masks when he was with different people. Hands down a sociopath. If he didn't set up Adnan he was right there next to him.
How do they expect law enforcement to help their community when they refuse to give information concerning crime? That's how law enforcement works. They just can't pull information from nowhere. They say they need to get out and do their job. Well, their job is to get out, ask questions, get answers, and make arrests. It's too easy and convenient to be a "victim". They like it, plain and simple. They love doing what they can to make law enforcement look enept at their job. They say outright that they will not "snitch", but then get pissed because they live in a shit city.

we should have injected the 5 with a disease, with something we could have been inoculated against.
