Jameis is done, the cops need to focus on this case.
http://www.tallahassee.com/story/news/local/2015/02/18/markels-death-remains-mystery/23641699/Seven months after someone shot Florida State law professor Dan Markel in the garage of his Betton Hills home, the Tallahassee Police Department has yet to make an arrest or identify a suspect. It's frustrating to those who knew the 41-year-old father of two. His friends and neighbors worry that the trail has gone cold. But police say they are still working the case. Markel's former colleague, Mark Spottswood, is one of those who is frustrated....
Investigators still believe Markel was the "intended target" of whoever killed him, said TPD spokesman Officer David Northway.
Yep, Dan Markel's killer still not caught. Still wondering how the killer knew Dan would be home at that time, given I don't believe Dan was followed. Maybe the killer used one of these (and the story comes from Tallahassee):
I've also hypothesized Dan might've used an app like Waze. Somebody could've tracked his progress that way as well.

From the link, this bit was disconcerting as it could be absolutely, anyone from anywhere.
What if one of those people had a crazed partner or family member, a completely unknown enemy, who targeted Dan out of mistaken jealousy?
random speculation, imo.
"Markel, who was also educated at Cambridge University in the United Kingdom, was also on the receiving end of a series of strange messages.
Several months before his death he began receiving unsolicited Facebook friend requests.
Markel wrote: 'Is anyone else getting pestered just in the last week or so by obviously ridiculous or malevolent friend requests on fb from people with sham profiles all over the world w no possible connection to you?
'It feels like an onslaught of the Facebook equivalent of Cialis and Nigerian prince scams.'
One friend jokingly replied, 'It might just be all your friends creating alter egos on Ambien.?'
Other friends soon put his mind at rest when they too said they had received the requests. One female friend wrote that she had received four such requests"
