Adnan Syed, convicted of killing teen Hae Min Lee more than 20 years ago, is free after a Baltimore Circuit Judge overturned Syed’s murder conviction.
Prosecutors and defense attorneys agreed that a yearlong investigation raised doubts about Syed’s guilty finding, it was revealed that there were other possible suspects in Lee’s strangling death. Prosecutors also noted that Syed was convicted partly due to cellphone data which was later found to be unreliable.
Hae Min Lee was found strangled in a shallow grave in Leakin Park in 1999. Syed has been placed on home detention and must wear a GPS monitor. The Baltimore State Attorney’s office has 30 days to decide whether they will drop Syed’s charges or try him again.
