In one of the most disturbing incidents in recent memory, a Florida man not only committed a horrific crime, but then posted the photo of it on Facebook.

Derek Medina, a 31-year-old self-help book author (!) and actor on the series Burn Notice, allegedly shot his wife, 26-year-old Jennifer Alfonso, in their home, and then posted a photo of her dead body to Facebook.

In the gruesome photo, Alfonso is seen slumped in a corner, awkwardly bent backwards at the knees, her arm and face bloodied.


Medina captioned the photo with 'Rip Jennifer Alfonso'

He also posted a rambling confession on the page,


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 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.'

Even more horrifying, Alfonso's 10-year-old daughter was home when it all happened, but was thankfully unharmed.

Medina reportedly never called 911 after the incident, but turned himself in after confessing to family. He has since been charged with first-degree murder.

The gory photo and confessional were left posted online for hours before Medina's account was shut down by Facebook officials.

I can't even imagine what went through the minds of her family and friends who unfortunately saw the photo...and I can't understand why Medina would put that picture online.

The uncensored photo is available, but I warn you it is VERY graphic, and VERY disturbing.

I know he is claiming she was abusing him, and there is surely more information to come from this story, but no matter what the motive, it's disturbing and sad, and has honestly left me speechless.
