Derek Medina, 31, is being
quizzed by police over the
death of his wife Jennifer
Alfonso, 26, who was
gunned down at their
Florida home yesterday.
Medina appeared to
confess to the murder by
posting a gruesome image
of a woman’s blood-soaked
body slumped on the floor
with the caption “RIP
Jennifer Alfonso”.

Shortly before the
photograph was uploaded,
Medina updated his status
saying: “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 u
understand me.” (sic)
Following his arrest, it
emerged that Medina had
penned a number of self-

Spirit Ghost World We Live
in Called Ghost Haunted

he can hunt spirits and
once saved his wife from a
ghost attack.
