TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- In the mysterious murder of FSU Professor Dan Markel, Tallahassee Police released five pages of heavily redacted reports this week in hopes they'll prompt someone to share what they know about the unsolved murder.

Markel was shot and killed in his car in his garage on Trescott Drive back in July 2014.

Perhaps the only new detail in those documents is that Markel's keys were still in the ignition and the house was locked.

Tallahassee Police believe the suspect or suspects fled the scene in a light colored Prius. TPD has not publicly pinpointed a motive in the case.

If you have any information on the murder of Dan Markel, call Crime Stoppers at (850) 574-TIPS.
