    Snipped for focus

    Not with the death penalty on the table.

    Exactly, or even just life in prison. They'll be offered a deal in exchange for testimony about who ordered the hit. Plus there are two of them, each afraid the other will finger them as the actual shooter, and one of them in jail on other charges. Being part of a gang, there may be a risk of retaliation for them and their families. It will take time for one of them to accept that talking is the best option. LE will play this very carefully to get what they need.

    His gig in NY that year was not as a visiting professor. He did not have teaching obligations. As a scholar in residence, he had a place to work on his research and was treated as part of the school's academic community, but was only in town a few times that year.

    The correct name for the event honouring Daniel Markel yesterday, which i mistakenly referred to as a " remembrance", is actually called a Yahrzeit.

    new article, new info

    http://www.tallahassee.com/story/ne...ines-evidence-witnesses-markel-case/87527408/

    The State Attorney's Office has compiled an exhaustive list of possible witnesses and nearly 100 pieces of evidence in its cases against the two men accused of killing Florida State University law professor Dan Markel.
    Most of the 175 possible witnesses are TPD officers and residents of the Betton Hills neighborhood, particularly people living on Randolph Circle and Trescott Drive. The list includes Markel's ex-wife Wendi Adelson, her brother Charlie and parents Harvey and Donna. Others include a self-proclaimed anti-Semite and convicted killer, a woman Markel was romantically linked to and an FSU professor who was dating Wendi Adelson.

    Wow!! I honestly can't wait to read the new docs referenced in this article.

    What a bizarre mix of potential witnesses (some of who I can't even imagine how they may be connected). Sounds like this case is going to get even more interesting than I had thought. I still believe it's a murder for hire though (& it's definitely not looking good for a certain FL family).

    Exciting new article! They have bank records/e-mails/surveillance on the A's. There were two recorded meetings by an undercover witness with DA in April before Garcia's arrest. They identify the significant others of both WA and Dan. This gives me hope that they are building a strong case against the A's. I can't wait until the jury reconvenes.

    That's a surprise. I would think he would want to lay low.

    I didn't know Wendi had a boyfriend. A horrible thought, I hope the A's didn't spread their hate for Dan to him or anyone else to do this horrible crime. It just seems the A's are too relaxed about this. JMO

    Given that they interviewed him twice, it sounds like he was cooperative and not involved. Hopefully he had useful information.

    Surprisingly, the b.f. is not dissimilar in appearance from D.M. imo.

    The present situation gives this article deeper meaning, imo.
    Luckily, for g.m. she is regarded as a " co-parent ".

    It will be interesting to see those documents. Sounds like they have a lot of evidence pertaining to the A's and maybe KM. So why no further arrests yet? And why release these documents now in advance of the grand jury reconvening in August?

    I wonder what kind of activity the surveillance footage of the A's captured. And what the undercover officers discussed with DA.

    Could they be laying this out so defense attorneys can get a look, therefore knowing that the State Attorney has a great case?

    Oops. Sent that too early.

    And before this gets too far down the road, defense attys will urge their clients to deal to avoid further damage to the A's reputation and avoid the DP?!.
