Brendan Kenny filed this request with the Baltimore County Police Department of Baltimore County, MD.

Crowdfund Request: Francesca Ann Holland Murder Investigation Documents (Complaint #:6C00060745)

Share Embed Help

This is a request for records connected with the Hae Min Lee murder case. In 2000, Adnan Syed was convicted of murdering her. One of the main investigators in the Baltimore County Police missing-person investigation was also involved in the Francesca Ann Holland murder investigation in 1997.

Ms. Holland was found strangled in the trunk of her car. Her Muslim husband was convicted of murdering her. My hope is that the records from the Holland investigation will shed some light on how investigators and prosecutors developed their narrative in the Adnan Syed case.

Backed by Brook Vanderford, Amelia McDonell-Parry, and 12 others.

$419.00 raised out of $414.00.
