Jay from Serial wants to tell his side of the story


The first season Serial, a new podcast produced by This American Life, was explosive. Producer and narrator Sarah Koenig titillated listeners with well-paced, teaser-driven storytelling, and raised some intriguing and troubling questions about a 15-year-old murder case involving teenagers. Now, Jay Wilds, one of the key witnesses in the trial that convicted Adnan Syed of killing his ex girlfriend Hae Min Lee, is ready to talk.

Writer Kelly Oxford screencapped Jay Wild’s Christmas Eve Facebook status where he shared his desire to give a single interview to finally tell his side of the story to the public before he deleted it.

Episode Eight of the podcast dealt with Koenig’s unsuccessful attempt to track down Jay to find out what he had to say now. At the trial Jay testified that he helped Adnan bury Hae’s body after Adnan killed her, and his testimony was the only direct evidence that Adnan is guilty of the murder.
