Murder suspect Derek Medina posted this photo of his wife’s body on Facebook this morning (via Facebook)
SOUTH MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A grisly murder scene in South Miami has ended up on Facebook after the alleged killer posted a picture to the social networking site.
Derek Medina, 31, of South Miami posted a picture of his dead wife around three hours ago on a Facebook page attributed to him. Police found the woman’s body in the townhouse at 5555 SW 67 Avenue.
There was a 10-year-old girl at the home, authorities say, but she was not hurt.
CBS4 has confirmed the identity of Medina with South Miami Police Sgt. Rene Landa.
The picture, which CBS4 and CBSMiami.com have chosen not to show, shows a woman identified in the post as Jennifer Alfonso, bent over backwards at the knees with her head in the corner of what appears to be a kitchen.
The woman’s left arm is covered in blood and blood appears on her face as well.
Alonso was married to Medina.
The Facebook page also had an alleged confession from Medina on the site that read as follows:
“I’m going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys take care Facebook people you will see me in the news” my wife was punching me and I am not going to stand anymore with the abuse so I did what I did I hope you understand me.”
The statement on Medina’s Facebook page came roughly at the same time as the photo of the body was published.
Medina went to police Thursday morning to tell authorities that he had a domestic dispute with his wife, and then shot her.
Medina had just changed his profile picture on the social networking site to a picture of himself, a woman, and a young girl some 15 hours before the final post allegedly of Alonso’s body.
According to marriage records, Medina and Alfonso had been married since April 2012.
