    Florida State University professor Dan Markel was found in his Tallahassee, Florida, home on Friday. Police say there were no signs of robbery or burglary and have yet to disclose any motive.

    According to Tallahassee police, officers found Markel after a neighbor called 911 at about 11 a.m. with reports of a "loud bang."

    Markel, 41, was rushed to a local hospital, where he died the following day.

    "While we cannot release specific information or details regarding this case, the Violent Crimes Unit is releasing that Mr. Markel's cause of death was a fatal gunshot wound to the head," Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo said in a statement.

    By Monday, police had categorized the case as a homicide, and according to Tallahassee Police Department spokesman David Northway, Markel was the intended target.

    No adlt arrest have been made at this time.

    would have preferred the documents remain sealed longer. Would have made our jobs easier.

    still investigating and working the case. To arrest we need probable cause and warrants. still working on that.

    Since no none relationship between victim and Rivera it suggests that this was hired hit.

    Judge unsealed probable cause warrants this morning.

    Ongoing investigation....

    Dodges answers to specific questions re. ex-wife's involvement "Following up every lead" blah, blah, blah

    <hard to hear questions>

    Working closely with SAO

    Still working on securing probable cause to secure other arrests

    Not on speaking terms with the Adelsons

    Safe to assume it was not a random act as there is no direct relation between Garcia and Prof. Markel

    Wonder if they were on speaking terms before she locked down all her social media? lol

    Very interesting that he made sure that was known during this press conference. And with that, he pretty much confirmed she is a suspect, imo.

    I would assume so. He kinda smirked when he said "we're not on speaking terms."

    I don't think we're going out far on a limb to say "yes, not cooperating."

    I find it a bit odd that he doesn't know what federal jail Rivera is in or why he's there. I don't believe him, but not sure why he wouldn't divulge that info.

    I noticed the smirk too. He was purposely direct and forthcoming with that tidbit, that much was clear.
