Cathy Ruson from courtchatter.com describes Facebook Killer Derek Medina as "an odd duck." That's probably the most accurate way to describe this man, who shot his wife eight times in the kitchen of their South Florida home, while she was preparing breakfast for her 10-year-old daughter, and then posted a picture of his handiwork on Facebook for all of his friends and family to see. In this second part, to our two-part story, we get to know the strange man who for years seemed desperate for attention.

The YouTube channel that Derek Medina left behind is chocked full of dozens of meaningless "selfie" videos of this narcissist performing various sporting activities. At times, he seems quite normal, then at other times there's clearly something "off" about him. Medina described himself as an actor, after playing a small non-speaking part in an episode of the television series Burn Notice. He also fancied himself an author after self-publishing 6 bizarre books with unnecessarily long titles. We delve into these materials to try and understand the mind of this cold-blooded killer.
