The Adelson Family Breaks Their Silence on the Dan Markel Murder Case
September 24, 2022
For those who aren’t familiar with the Family case, Dan Markel was an award-winning law professor at Florida State University when he was shot to death in his Tallahassee home in 2014. Markel’s family immediately suspected that his ex-wife,
Wendi Adelson’s Family may have been involved in planning the murder, and they were proven right when investigators arrested her and her two sons as co-conspirators just last month.
A brief timeline of events
On July 18, 2014, while working in his office, 45-year-old law professor and Florida State University College of Law associate dean,
Dan Markel was gunned down. Police say that he was shot with a .40 caliber Glock 22 and managed to get from his office to the house next door where he collapsed. He died later at Tallahassee Memorial Hospital from a single gunshot wound to the head.
A Crime Stoppers reward poster indicated that an individual suspected of involvement in this shooting could be charged with first-degree murder or felony murder, depending on the evidence found.
Markel’s widow is Megan Elizabeth Adelson’s Family and they have two children together: Maxwell Markel and Samantha Barbara Adelson Family.
I believe that this is not a case of someone escaping from prison and killing someone else. I think it was somebody who was sent by somebody else, to kill him for their reasons.
We would like whoever knows something about his death to contact the police and share what they know.
It may seem as though there’s not much hope, but if enough people come forward with any information at all we may be able to find out who killed him and put them behind bars.
Please help us put this person behind bars and give us some closure so that my children will never have to feel worried about our lives again because they know that justice has been served.
Winnipeg, Manitoba – With the recent arrest of Sigfredo Garcia for the 2013 shooting death of prominent law professor and family friend Dan Markel
, Brooklyn-based lawyer Scott Adelson is relieved to have some closure in this difficult time. While we cannot put our friend and loved one back to life, he said, we are pleased that law enforcement has been able to track down those responsible for his death. He also expressed gratitude toward the West Miami Police
Department Det. Ron Patiño, who spearheaded the international investigation that led to Mr. Garcia’s arrest.
It’s been a long journey, but I have to say, I’m glad to have control of my life back, said Mr. Adelson. After not being able to do anything for more than two years, it feels like a huge weight has been lifted off our shoulders.
According to family spokesperson David Chambers, Ms. Kim and her children are also in good spirits and ready to move forward. We are relieved with the latest developments in Mr. Garcia’s arrest, he explained. This means that we can look forward and focus on other things, like rebuilding our family after such a great loss.
Looking to the future
We are deeply saddened by this senseless murder, and we cannot comprehend how our beautiful son Adam could have met such a tragic end. We remain heartbroken and shaken to our core.
Out of respect for his memory, we hope that others will refrain from casting their judgments, speculating on what transpired, or otherwise drawing any conclusions about Adam’s death. We are confident that the investigation will yield positive results and bring those responsible to justice, but for it to succeed,
Adam needs us all as witnesses who preserve his memory by refusing to allow his loss to become a diversion from what is important – upholding the values of life, liberty, and justice for all.
We hope this post has given you a little more insight into our family and we encourage you to share it with others who are interested in the case.
One final request we have is for anyone out there who may know something about what happened to our son – please come forward. All tips can be anonymous and can be submitted by phone, text, email, or online form. The message will be forwarded to the police immediately.
