Here's Medina's confession from Facebook:

The photo of his wife shows her on her back with bent knees and her head slumped against kitchen cabinets. Her face and left arm are bloody. Medina posted the photo with the caption "RIP Jennifer Alfonso." Here's a screenshot of the comments.

Riptide has chosen not to run the full photo out of respect for the victim and her family. Amazingly, as of last check, the picture has still not been removed from Facebook. It's been up for four hours. Update: Facebook has removed Medina's entire page.

CBS Miami has confirmed with police that Medina is in fact the suspect.

The incident happened at 5555 SW 67th Ave. Medina showed up at a South Miami PD station earlier this morning to confess to the murder of the woman he had been married to since 2012. When police arrived at the scene, they found the woman dead.

A 10-year-old girl who was unharmed was also found inside the home.

Medina lists his occupation on his profile as "actor" on Burn Notice but appears to have appeared only as a featured extra in an episode of the USA show that was filmed in 2009. Alfonso listed her job as a server at Denny's.

Both had recently uploaded a photo of the two of them together with a young girl dining at a waterside restaurant. The photo appears to have been taken within the last 24 hours.

Here's the bizarre photo Medina has been using as his profile picture. Update: Apparently it's the cover to his latest e-book of self-advice. Turns out Medina had been a prolific writer of bizarre books over the past few months .

The night before the murder, Alfonso had updated her Facebook profile photo to a picture of the couple kissing.

South Miami PD has now turned the case over to Miami-Dade Police.

Photo is all over the internet by now. Daughter will encounter it from time to time. More: sick people will find her and send her picture of her murdered mother.

Maybe the little girl that was also in the home is the one who shot her and he is just making an elaborate confession to save her face?

He is getting charged with first degree murder, I am friends with the family, they have not seen the picture, and i hope they dont. unfortuntly, i have.  I am working on reporting everyone who posts the picture.

She was punching him? Does he really think this will work as a defense? Worked for a guy named George Zimmerman, and in Florida too! Maybe he can get Zimmerman's attorney's to defend him and they can blame his wife for her own death because this guy was "standing his ground". Isn't that the acceptable defense for murder in Florida.

Post your murder on FACEBOOK......It's a Homicide detectives wet dream......But I know he committed this murder because his 9th uncle still enslaved in Cube refused to give him a snow cone in 1961. May she rest in peace and he rot in jail....

Not a hoax, it's been on the news here in Miami

Some of this comments are disgusting! first of all how do you even know that this whole "she hits me" thing is not just to cover his ass for when he hits the stand. Is much harder for women to defend themselves in abusive relationships that's why sometimes they result to killing but men are much stronger and much more capable of defending themselves. Point is he is a pussy and a scum hope he rots in prison.

@m.miller139 it still doesn't make since because he could have simply told police that his daughter grabbed the gun and mistakenly killed her. but its too early to tell what happen. give it sometime; more info will soon be available.

@m.miller139 i actully think u could be right, that is a good cover up, maybe the mum and daughter where fighting the girl clicks it, gets he dads gun shots her mum and dad walks in freking out and tells his daughter ill take the blame and to put more evidentce on himself he puts pics online, thats abit weird to take the time to take a pic n put it on facebook

@qwerty I don't believe it's "his" page, since he is in custody, but rather some ghoul who thinks tragedy = comedy.  Facebook will remove it when they're good and ready.

How about you learn some respect..oh gee I spelled one word wrong..oh my god!! It doesn't matter what you can't see. The point of the picturenot being on the net is so her mother doesn't see it.
