Captivating Crime Story

1999; two popular, smart high school kids; forbidden romance; a breakup; then murder. The girl, Hae Min Lee, is found in a shallow grave. She had been strangled with bare hands. Her ex-boyfriend, Adnan Sayed, is convicted of killing her, and is now serving life in prison for the murder. But did he do it? This story is so captivating because I can relate so much to the people. I could have gone to high school with those kids. And Serial does a great job of telling the story. It's a podcast, but before you dismiss it, know that this podcast has been downloaded over 5 million times, making it THE most popular podcast in the world. Just listen to episode 1, and I bet you can't stop listening.
