Jennifer Alfonso, the woman whose murder was made public on Facebook, is laid to rest

AUGUST 13, 2013


About 100 family and friends gathered in Doral Tuesday to pay their final respects to Jennifer Alfonso, the 26-year-old South Miami woman whose dead body was posted on Facebook last week.

A confession attributed to her husband Derek Medina and posted on the same Facebook page, stated that she was killed following an argument. Medina, 31, remains jailed pending his arraignment on charges of first-degree murder.

At the noon-time burial of her daughter at Our lady of Mercy Catholic Cemetery, Alfonso’s mother stood somberly before the white coffin, tears streaming down her face, as she hugged her other three children and her husband Rohan Knox. The family has declined to discuss the tragedy.
