Social Media Sensation Bianca Devins Has Been Killed
It is confirmed that social media sensation Bianca Devins has been killed on Sunday. An upstate man has been charged with second-degree murder and officially accused, as explained by police officials. The murderer is Brandon Andre Clark, a 21-year-old man.
Clark slit Bianca’s throat and posted her lifeless body on Instagram. The post remained online and available for all to see for almost a full day. He was charged with second-degree murder and could face as much as 25 years behind bars if he is convicted. This is considered a class A-1 felony.
The story of how Bianca Devins has been killed is a disturbing one. He first killed her then slit her throat. Afterward, he proceeded with the layer on top of her body and took ”self-photographs” with Bianca, aged only 17. He described this to the police as we were questioned.
One of the cops described the scene: ” Other officers arrived within moments, and together they engaged Clark. They were able to disarm the male, and after a brief struggle, they took him into custody”. What could have pushed this young man to commit such a vile crime?
Did he know the victim? Was he obsessed with her? Was it premeditated? Many questions remain to be answered as the investigation will begin and the trial is expected.
On Instagram, the 17-year-old Utica teenager recently met Brandon Clark, 21, who lived about a half-hour away.
They quickly became a couple over the past two or three months, so much so that their families spent time together. So the police said Devins’ family had no qualms about the pair heading to Queens last Saturday to attend a concert. On Sunday morning, the return trip to central New York turned tragic.

International interest after Bianca Devins death
The horrific murder has drawn international interest as Devins was an active Instagram user who was developing a strong following through her posts. Although the quick spreading of the painful images of her death added another layer of grief.
The singer that Bianca went to see, Nicole Dollanganger, even requested her followers to stop posting photos of the images with her on Twitter.
“What happened to this beautiful angel was evil, cruel and senseless,” Dollanganger said Monday.
She continued, “While I know some of u are very well-intentioned, I ask that u PLEASE STOP sharing the horrific content her murderer distributed. Please stop sending them to me.”
Police says about investigation
“The investigation revealed that the argument progressed until the male produced a large, black-handled knife and used this to inflict the injuries that caused her death,” Utica police stated in a news release.
“During this time, it is believed that he took and distributed photographs of the killing on the Discord platform,” police continued, citing the online platform. “Members of Discord then viewed the images posted and contacted the Utica Police Department.”
But still is unclear How exactly Bianca Devins has been killed.
“We don’t believe anyone physically traveled from Utica to New York with them, but there may have been a party that she met at the concert in New York that precipitated the argument and ultimately the homicide,” Utica Sgt. Michael Curley said.
Devins’ family has declined interview requests, putting out a statement Monday, saying, “We are very grateful for the outpouring of love and sympathy we have received from our friends, family, Bianca’s friends, and the whole community.”
She had just graduated from T. R. Proctor High School in Utica and was planning to attend Mohawk Valley Community College in the fall. The high school made counseling services available this week.
Investigators explain that the couple drove back to Utica. It is on a side street that Clark killed her after pulling over. He was arraigned Monday night on a murder charge basis. After undergoing surgery for his wounds, he was placed in Oneida County Correctional Facility.
Despite his injuries being ”severe”, cops explain that he ”is expected to survive”.
