What’s new on the Wiki?
New evidence files have been shared online by the Court of Appeals. These are large files, but not all documents within them are “new-to-the-public”. The most significant new document is Asia McClain Chapman’s two day testimony from the 2016 PCR hearing. Find the complete files (in searchable format) and an index on our new COA evidence page.

What’s the Current Status of the Adnan Syed Case?
The Court of Appeals of Maryland denied Adnan Syed a new trial on March 8, 2019. The court ruled that although Syed’s trial counsel provided ineffective assistance of counsel by failing to contact Asia McClain (an alibi witness for the time of the murder) and by failing to cross-examine the State’s expert witness about the reliability of data on incoming cell phone calls, he was not prejudiced by his counsel’s poor performance. The Court of Appeals overruled two lower courts that held Syed was entitled to a new trial.
Syed’s team filed a Motion for Reconsideration in the Court of Appeals on April 8, 2019. Three organizations moved the Court of Appeals for leave to file amicus curiae briefs in support of Adnan Syed’s motion for reconsideration. The briefs were by The Innocence Network and the MacArthur Justice Center; The National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers; and The Maryland Criminal Defense Attorneys’ Association, Maryland Office of the Public Defender, and Individual Criminal Defense Attorneys. Unfortunately, on April 19, 2019, the Court of Appeals denied Syed’s motion for reconsideration.
Adnan Syed remains in prison.
What Happens Next?
Syed’s team intends to seek a writ of certiorari from the United States Supreme Court to appeal the Maryland Court of Appeals decision. The petition will be filed in mid-July, 2019.
Wow, All This Happened Since Serial?
Yes, one of the goals of this website, is to share the new information and particularly the documents and other materials that have been made public since the Serial podcast concluded in 2014. We were inspired by the Undisclosed podcast, which aired in 2015, though we are not affiliated with the Undisclosed team. Check out trial transcripts, police reports, photos, and the latest appeal case details.
