Overview
A story of murder and an unlikely alibi witness as featured in This American Life's hit podcast Serial.
In 1999 Adnan Syed was arrested for murdering his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. But at the same time he was accused of the crime, Asia McClain claims she saw Syed at the local library.
When McClain hears of Syed s arrest, she wrote to him to let him know that she might be his alibi. In spite of the opportunity to have him proven innocent, Syed s attorney did not take any action. Later, his attorney was disbarred due to numerous health problems including multiple sclerosis. She died in 2004.
Over a decade after Syed s arrest, This American Life s Sarah Koenig investigates the old case. Her interviews with McClain become the first subject of Koenig s hugely successful podcast Serial and the story became an international internet phenomenon.
Determined to set the record straight and the truth free, McClain reaches out to Syed s new defense attorney and on November 6, 2015, the court ordered an investigation to determine whether Syed s case be re-opened "in the interests of justice for all parties. Finally, McClain can become the key alibi witness that she was always meant to be.
Now, in Confessions of a Serial Alibi, Asia McClain tells her story for the very first time."
