Serial may be over, but the snowball started by its investigation into the case of Adnan Syad, who was jailed for the murder of his 18-year-old ex-girlfriend, Hae Min Lee, continues to roll. After Jay Wilds gave a brand new account of just what happened on the day of Hae's murder, the prosecutor in the case spoke to the Intercept. The prosecutor, Kevin Ulrick, took serious issue with Serial's investigation, claiming he hadn't even been contacted by Serial's producers until the season was nearly over. The Intercept agreed, calling Serial's attempts to contact Ulrick "the most troubling thing" about the program. However, Serial is fighting back big time, and they make a pretty strong case.
