Derek Medina, the South Miami man who ended his marriage and his wife's life this morning and then posted photos of her dead body on Facebook, once wrote an e-book titled How I Saved Someone's Life and Marriage and Family Problems Thru Communication.

Medina was a prolific publisher of self-help e-books and maintained a website at EmotionalWriter.com. The cover of his latest book, World Just Ask Yourself Why We Are Living a Life Full of Lies and How I an Emotional Writer Made All of My Professional Dreams Come True Blocking Society's Teachings, is currently his Facebook default photo. Update: Facebook has removed Medina's entire page.

"I gave 6 months of working on 6 books of guidance and self help to saving people's lives and relating to problems we must over come as one world one nation one country 'give me the opportunity to touch your spirit' give me a chance to change your world or make you understand the world we live in 'these 6 books will change your world in seconds, days, months, years,'" Medina wrote on his site.

The e-books are available through the website e-Junkie and retail for $9.99 to $11.99 each. At least one is available in paperback for $19.99

The books mostly have long, bizarre titles:

  • How I Saved Someone's Life and Marriage and Family Problems Thru Communication
  • Humans Who Are Gifted and Can See the Supernatural Spirit Ghost World We Live in Called Ghost Haunted Adventures
  • How a Judgmental and Selfish Attitude Is Destroying the World We Live in Because the World Is Vanishing Beneath Our Eyes
  • Attention World Save Yourself
  • World Just Ask Yourself Why We Are Living a Life Full of Lies and How I an Emotional Writer Made All of My Professional Dreams Come True Blocking Society's Teachings
  • If the World Ended Today How Would You React to Saving the World or Helping the World or Would It All Be Over for You

In a summary of one book, Medina claims he can hunt ghosts and once saved his wife from a ghost attack while they were in New York.

"The author can relate to the world of victims who have been attacked by evil spirits," the summary states.

Another summary indicates Medina had "experiences with aliens, UFOs," and breaks down "his comparison of humans and aliens."

"Why are we not acting on working to create Technology for a time travel machine?" he asks in another summary. "Why cant we build this for the world for an evacuation emergency plan?"

Other books talk about the end times, the destruction of the world, and the corruption of the court system.

Internet trolls have already found his book about marriage on Barnes & Noble's site.

"What a fantastic book. My wife was rustling my jimmies but I didn't want to get a divorce. Instead, I read this book and shot her in the face," wrote one in the review section.

Anybody read the acknowledgements of "Humans Who Are Gifted and Can See the Supernatural Spirit Ghost World We Live in Called Ghost Haunted Adventures"? He writes, "My partner thru the beginning to the end which is 2013 is Jennifer Alfonso." Umm... creepy??

Derek is a hero.

I mean I really liked what he did. No one has the courage to post crime in FB and go to the police. I admire him.

Side note: Why is the New Times re-posting something a troll wrote as a "review" in their article like it's something even worth mentioning?

Many people see "marriage" as if they "own" they spouse for life even when love and understanding is no longer what it once was for any given reason. The only thing that can tie two persons is love, and the simplest way to be together in life is to fully sharing it. ~You don't love me, you're free to go on and fulfill your dreams. I don't love you, as well I need to do with mine.~ Easy to do when we realize that we only live once!!!

Just when you thought Miami could not get any more bizarre with disastrous news involving death by guns this guy proves us wrong. SMH RIP Jennifer Alfonso Prayers to both families. May the rotten imbecile suffer in jail! (His name is not worth mentioning as he is garbage)

who knows what kind of life these 2 lived behind closed doors, we may never really know. she was obviously in a relationship with a mentally unstable man and his "books" seem to prove it. this relationship was toxic and she's probably as much to blame for her demise as he is.. I think he would have found a way to kill her.. gun or no gun.. at least he turned himself in and didn't take the easy way out

Yet another prime example on why there should be a psychological evaluation to be a gun owner.

A man has shot his wife in a domestic dispute. Imagine how it might have gone if no weapon was available in the house. At worst this troubled couple might have gone their separate ways and nobody need have gotten hurt. At best, couldn't one of them find someone to talk to, to find some solution short of violence?

are u an idiot? this is crazy. why would someone take humans life? a real hero would be someone who goes to the army and fights there, protecting our country, that's a real hero. He is not a hero. He is a sicko.

@Eymi In 'she's probably as much to blame for her demise as he is.' You're blaming her for being murdered.

Lol... Human stink. Every human deserve what they deserve. Humanbeans destroy the nature, and do you think that's there's a law for that? I don't think so. I asked 100 time why we here for, if we don't do nothing but destroy the nature. Does the humans care about? How many animal are dead because of us (human)

One less people in the world doesn't affect the nature.
