Not too sure that Serial Series 2 re Bowe Bergdahl (soldier who walked off base and was captured by the Taliban) is that gripping.
It's not, it's keeping me going (just) but in an 'hmm that's interesting' kinda way not a 'what the hell???' way that series 1 was gripping.
If you got into serial season 1 there's also 'Undisclosed' and 'Serial Dynasty'. Bunch of lawyers and/or investigators drilling down a lot further into detail. Jay's testimony.... boy oh boy. knock knock
I like the way they keep saying "well, who could have done it if it wasn't Syed". How about Jay? Bugger got jailed pretty much on Jay's evidence.
Jay's evidence sounds dodgy, coached and rehearsed.
But I still think Anand did it. And it can only be one of those two.
How so? Literally only Jay's word ties anyone to anything, and it's impossible to take any
of his conflictig statements (he gave 2 or 3 to police, all varying wildly, and testified two or three different times, again, all varying a lot).
Certainly the prosecution's story bears little, if any, resemblance to the truth.
The police never even talked to classmates either after she went missing or after the body showed up. They got Jay to rumble (most likely had something on him, quite possible he & Adnan were in... business... together). The alibi of the current boyfriend, Don, is bodgy (he wasn't at his normal work where his mum was manager, he was supposedly at another shop where his step-mum was manager - and she falsified a time-sheet for him), and he couldn't account for the time between work & 1AM at all. Not that the cops ever spoke to him, cos why on earth would you ever speak to the current boyfriend of a missing person. No sirree.
It's almost certain her car wasn't where Jay "told" the police to "find' it for very long, and someone had most likely cleaned it in between. Her body lay face-down for 6-8 hours after she died, certainly not stuck in a small car boot for ~3 hours before being buried on it's side. Never looked for, or found, her purse (why on earth would an ex-, or for that matter friend, steal her purse??). Never tested the swabs etc for evidence of rape. The cops knowingly lied & said Adnan was 18, hence up for a capital trial, which counted heavily against him at his bail hearing despite an extraordinarily solid community turnout on his behalf.
The phone 'pings' are almost complete rubbish, that sort of evidence shoulnd't have been used as evidence then, has now been challenged and no longer gets used as evidence. Police and/or prosecutors warned witnesses off and most likely "lost" some other exculpatory statements, both of which are violations and cause for re-trial. Half the witnesses were talking about the wrong day (there was no wrestling match that Hae was supposedly going to, different week)
FWIW they only pulled one set of phone records, Adnan's. None of her friends, not Don's. And on and on it goes. A hell of a lot of stuff got ignored or never followed up and 15 years on, it's gone. They had him and only him in the gun, from a long, long way out. It's possible it was Adnan, but if it was, it's only by pure co-incidence they got the right guy. Whole investigation & case was a frame-up.
Jay may have known something about it, his first statement to one of his friends he told was "her body was face down, in a truck" - which fits the lividity stuff from the post mortem photos. He's basically perjured himself, recently said the burial happened after 12, but under all that he still may know something (I just doubt it). Just can't possibly believe he was with Adnan that night, he knew nothing about what they'd done & where they'd gone.
Still genuinely interested how you think it could only be AS or JW. FWIW the heavily vaunted "Jay knew where the car was!!!" only happened after the cops had discussed it with him (but never got him on tape saying it's at X location)... a few more hours of talking... and a false start where he took them to the wrong spot. Again, he may have known, but if he did, he's doing a good job of hiding the fact.
