TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -

Tallahassee police released the image of a car Wednesday, as they continue to investigate the homicide of a Florida State University law professor.

Dan Markel, 41, was shot in the head Friday at his home, 2116 Trescott Drive. The Harvard-educated author, who was born in Canada, died at Tallahassee Community Hospital Saturday.

Police said in a press release that the "vehicle seen in the area on the day of the crime," and added that there was the possibility that the car "may have been a resident, passerby or delivery driver."

Markel's acrimonious divorce with FSU law professor Wendi Jill Adelson, 35, raised suspicion. The Tallahassee Democrat reported her attorney, Jimmy Judkins, said she was "distraught, devastated, scared to death."

Adelson, a University of Miami law school graduate, was a 1997 graduate of Taravella High School in Coral Springs.

The couple had two boys, Benjamin Amichai, 3, and Lincoln Jonah, 5.

"He had so many hopes and plans for his two little boys, Ben and Lincoln, whom he worried over with febrile intensity and loved that way too," Markel's friend Abigail Shrier said in the Jewish Journal.

Markel and Adelson, who wed in 2006 and divorced last year, were in the middle of a child custody fight, court records show.

Detectives had not identified a suspect. Police set up a tip line exclusive to the case and asked that anyone with information call 1-891-574-4462.
