Everything That’s Happened With Adnan Syed’s Case Since ‘Serial’


Cell phone incoming call data was deemed suspect

If you listened to Serial, you probably remember that a lot was made of Syed’s cell phone records, especially the incoming call data. Two of the people questioned by police after these records were obtained — Jay Wilds and Jennifer Pusateri — led to Syed getting convicted: Pusateri told police that Wilds had called her using Syed’s phone, and Wilds confessed that he had helped Syed bury Lee’s body in Leakin Park.

Wilds’ confession didn’t come until later, after he first denied being involved at all in what had happened, and supporters of Syed say that audio from his interviews with police reek of coaching. Another podcast series, Undisclosed: The State vs. Adnan Syed, produced in 2015 by one of Syed’s advocates, lawyer Rabia Chaudry, found that in audio of Wilds’ testimony,

Worth Watching: Daniel Dae Kim on ‘Good Doctor,’ ‘AGT Champions’ and ‘Manifest’ Finales

A selective critical checklist of notable Monday TV:

The Good Doctor (10/9c, ABC): Austistic savant surgeon Dr. Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore) doesn’t always make a good first impression — and so it is when a new chief of surgery, Dr. Jackson Han, shows up at San Jose St. Bonaventure. If the new doc looks familiar, it’s because he’s played by Lost and Hawaii Five-0 veteran Daniel Dae Kim, who’s also an executive producer of the show. When Dr. Han witnesses Shaun’s unnervingly blunt bedside manner with a distraught mom, he begins to question whether it’s worth keeping this unfiltered genius on staff as a resident.
