Killer Describes Contract Murder of FSU Law Professor

Luis Rivera describes how he says he and his partner stalked Dan Markel.

— -- In a newly released video statement to prosecutors, convicted killer Luis Rivera describes how he says he and his partner stalked Florida State University law professor Dan Markel and shot him dead in the garage of his Tallahassee home in July 2014.

Police allege that the two men were hired by members of the family of Wendi Adelson, Markel’s ex-wife, following the couple’s contentious divorce. Attorneys for the Adelson family have denounced accusations that they were involved in Markel’s killing as nothing more than “fanciful fiction.”

The woman alleged to be the go-between linking the two men and the Adelson family was arrested last weekend and is scheduled to make her first appearance in court tomorrow morning in Tallahassee.

Watch Rivera’s video statement above.
