A man from south Miami allegedly shot his wife and proceeded to post a photo of her dead body on Facebook, before turning himself into the police today. Thirty one-year-old Derek Medina shot his 26-year-old wife, Jennifer Alfonso, and then posted on Facebook, “Im going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife love you guys miss you guys takecare Facebook people you will see me in the news.” Then, Medina posted another status with the caption “Rip Jennifer Alfonso.” A photo was attached of the body of a young woman laying on the floor in a black leotard, blood running down her face and arm, with her legs bent backward, according to the Washington Times. Facebook removed Medina’s entire profile five hours later, after the content was flagged as inappropriate. According to USA Today, a Facebook spokesperson said, “We took action on the profile — removing the content and disabling the profile, and we reached out to law enforcement. We take action on all content that violates our terms, which are clearly laid out on our site."
