MAN SHOOTS WIFE, POSTS PIC ONLINE – Saturday August 10 2013

– A man is being held by Florida police after apparently gunning down his wife and posting a gruesome picture of her dead body on Facebook, authorities say.
Derek Medina, 31, was being questioned by detectives in Miami after turning himself in yesterday following the shooting death of his wife, Jennifer Alfonso, 26.
Before he was taken into custody, Medina had apparently posted pictures showing his slain wife’s blood-soaked body on Facebook under the caption “RIP Jennifer Alfonso”.
In a status update posted shortly before the photo was uploaded, Medina wrote about the incident.
He said: “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.”
Police said Medina drove himself to South Miami Police Department after the shooting.
“Officers then responded to the listed location where they found the victim deceased from apparent gunshot wounds, as well as the victim’s daughter, 10, who was unharmed,” a statement said. “The motive is unknown at this time.”
Medina’s Facebook page showing the picture of his dead wife was up for several hours before being taken down later on Thursday.
Local media reports quoted Medina’s father, Derek Medina Sr, saying that his son had killed his wife after a violent domestic dispute. “He just said that his wife picked up a knife on him, and they had a big fight, and he shot her,” Mr Medina Sr said – Herald Sun

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
