Miami Man Allegedly Murders Wife…Then Posts Photo on Facebook
Derek Medina, a 31-year-old South Florida man who authorities say fatally shot his wife, Jennifer Alfonso, (and apparently posted a photo of her dead body on his Facebook page) has turned himself into Miami-Dade police.
A Miami man allegedly confessed on Facebook to murdering his wife, and a photo posted on his profile appears to have shown the woman’s dead body. The photo remained on Facebook for more than five hours and was shared more than 150 times before Facebook removed it around 5 p.m. ET Thursday.
From the Miami Herald:
According to Miami-Dade police, Medina shot and killed Alfonso, then drove to the South Miami police station to surrender.
Officers rushed to the townhouse, where they also found Alfonso’s 10-year-old daughter from a previous relationship. The girl was not injured and emerged wrapped in a blanket.
Medina is being questioned by detectives. So far, no charges have been announced.
