Also interviewed in the special is Dr. William Manion, a medical examiner with nearly 30 years of experience who reviewed the autopsy report, and provides insight into critical information about that report that could also play a key role in a new trial.
"As Investigation Discovery did earlier this year with a special on the controversial Steven Avery case as featured in the hit Netflix series Making A Murderer, we are excited to share the latest in this unfolding saga with viewers," said Henry Schleiff, Group President, Investigation Discovery, American Heroes Channel and Destination America. "The serialized podcast in 2014 has more than 130 million downloads to date, proving unequivocally that this is one of the great true crime stories of our time. With a judge expecting to make a decision at any time, we want to give our viewers not only the crucial information surrounding Adnan Syed's case, but also the personal, first-hand accounts of what to expect from key players."
