A high-ranking Florida investigator has been relieved of his duties after allegedly making violent threats.
Jose Alfonso was fired by the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office after his own daughters claimed he hated attorneys and wanted to shoot them.
According to the Miami Herald, a subsequent investigation reported that one of Alfonso’s daughters received a text from her father, saying he was wanted to shoot all state attorneys in the office. She later amended her statement to say shoot all attorneys.
Over the next two weeks, Alfonso was raked over by investigators, until the former high-ranking Miami PD officer checked himself into a mental facility. He was released however after doctors determined he posed no threat to others or himself.
Following the conclusion of their investigation, authorities determined that Alfonso was overstressed from a concurrent divorce and that his comments likely stemmed from that emotional strain.
On June 4, however, Alfonso was fired.
Alfonso made headlines in November of last year when, while stopping by a CVS pharmacy to pick up medicine, he stopped an armed gunman who was threatening employees at the establishment. 51 years of age at the time of the incident, Alfonso was the head of the SAO’s human-trafficking investigations unit.
Prior to working for the SAO, the former City of Miami Police veteran was commander of the Little Havana neighborhood policing unit, retiring in May of 2017 after thirty years of service.
