Florida Man Murders Wife, Posts Pictures and Confession to Facebook

Illustration for article titled Florida Man Murders Wife, Posts Pictures and Confession to Facebook

Derek Medina, 31, fatally shot his wife, Jennifer Alfonso, in their South Miami home this morning. He then posted a confessions and pictures of her dead, bloody body to his Facebook wall.

After he had his fill of social media, he went to a police station to confess. Apparently the picture of her dead lifeless body was up on his Facebook wall for hours, but his entire profile is now gone.

Awfully, a 10-year-old girl who was unharmed was also found inside the home. No word on her relation to the couple, but a photo posted to Medina's Facebook page just yesterday shows the three of them enjoying a meal together.


According to the Miami New Times, Medina listed his occupation on his profile as "actor" on Burn Notice but appears to have appeared only as a featured extra in an episode of the USA show that was filmed in 2009. He also self-published a bunch of crazy-sounding books — including one titled How I Saved Someone's Life and Marriage and Family Problems Thru Communication. Yep.

Am I being overly cynical in thinking that his Facebook post is a last-minute effort to plant a fact in his favor so he can claim stand-your-ground defense?
