But this time, Medina walked up to his room and grabbed a gun. When she saw it, Alfonso attacked with a knife, but Medina quickly disarmed her, then shot her in the head.
After he killed her, he took pictures of her corpse and uploaded it to Facebook. Then he locked her 10-year-old daughter in the house with her and walked out.
The whole thing was caught on the couple’s home security system.
Medina then went to a nearby police station and confessed to the murder.
“I had an argument with my wife and she was hitting me. She always hits me all the time. I got tired of her hitting me so I shot her,” he said. When officers tried to get dispatchers to send fire rescue to the couple’s house, Medina then said – “oh she’s dead. I know she’s dead because I emptied my 380 in her. Five shots.”
Derek Medina was sentenced to life, and must serve 25 years before he’s eligible for parole.
2. Randy Janzen
On May 7, 2015, Randy Janzen, 50, of British Columbia, confessed to killing his daughter, wife and sister because he could not bear watching his daughter suffer from debilitating migraines anymore, and didn’t want to have his wife and sister live with what he’d done.
He writes that his daughter Emily was:
The best little girl two parents could ever hope for… [she] excelled at so many things but slowly had to stop almost everything because of the migraines… I don’t think anyone really knew how much pain Emily was in on a daily basis and the severe depression that these migraines caused her. Emily had tried everything to get better but nothing seemed to help her. I took a gun and shot her in the head and now she is migraine free and floating in the clouds on a sunny afternoon.’
