People Magazine Investigates: Who Killed Dan Markel?

People Magazine Investigates: Who Killed Popular Florida State Law Professor Dan Markel?:

More than three years later, the open case is the focus of Monday night’s episode of People Magazine Investigates on Investigation Discovery. The episode zeroes in on the police questioning of Markel’s ex-wife, fellow law professor Wendi Adelson, as the couple emerged from a contentious divorce.

Above the Law, The Dan Markel Case: The Latest Developments:

[C]heck out the People Magazine Investigates episode on the Markel case, which aired on Monday night (disclosure: I’m interviewed in it). It’s an excellent and fair-minded overview of the case, told in compelling fashion. The reenactments featuring actors are a bit cheesy — they should have just stuck with archival footage, like the 20/20 episode on the case — but there’s some good new material, including interviews with close friends of Dan’s like Professors Ethan LeibMark Spottswood, and Howard Wasserman. So it’s worthwhile viewing for those who have been following the case — and hoping that everyone responsible for Dan Markel’s murder is finally held accountable.

Jeff Lacasse, an ex-boyfriend of Markel’s ex-wife, Wendi Adelson, denies being involved in the slaying, which police say was a murder for hire carried out in the driveway of Markel’s Tallahassee home amid a bitter divorce in July 2014.
