“Murder begins where self-defense ends.”~Georg Buchner
Okay, so already some of you are whining and complaining about gender bias and how I made females look crazy because I posted about female killers.
Well, I have two things to say to that: MEN do stupid things too, and women (no, not all) will often times be so jaded by them that the good men of the world suffer for it. AND the other thing I have to say about it, is here’s the “other gender” story for you. So just calm down!!
This story I found particularly insane as there’s no ending to it as of yet.
31 year old Derek Medina is now awaiting trial, being charged with the shooting murder of his wife, 26 year old Jennifer Alfonso that occurred on the 8th of August of 2013.
HE POSTED THEM ON HIS FACEBOOK PROFILE!!
(Edited here for obvious reasons. Here’s the screen cap of his Facebook profile on the day he shot and killed Alfonso. Through some good searching, you can find the unedited photograph. Not suggested though.)
And the only question I have is WHY????
Not WHY did he kill her, but WHY did he take a photograph of her laying there either dying or already dead, and post that on Facebook???
What kind of person does that?
Derek Medina is now charged with her murder.
He admitted to killing her. But Medina is ALSO stating that he had killed Alfonso in self-defense. Medina is always saying that he had gone through abuse by the hands of Alfonso. Which is not uncommon, but really never is heard of in today’s news and society. Its possible she may have been abusive to him in some manner. But whether or not this death was because of self-defense…… nobody knows.
A tentative date for his trial is just around the corner. And we’ll see if his “self-defense” plea holds up in a Miami, Florida court of law.
Autopsy reports are out as well as Medina’s 26 page report of when he finally turned himself in to the authorities. Autopsy shows that Alfonso was on her knees and has wounds to her arms, as if to protect her face. That doesn’t sound like someone who is giving abuse to another person to me. It rather sounds like someone scared for their life, and in this case, rightfully so as Alfonso was shot MORE than six times.
But as I said, we’ll see when finally Medina is brought to trial.
