A 17-year-old Instagram celebrity Bianca Devins was killed by her 21-year-old boyfriend, Andrew Clark. The incident took place in Utica, upstate New York, on Sunday.
Utah police told that the couple attended a concert together in New York City on Saturday and arrived back in Utica early Sunday. On the way back, the two had a heated argument which led to Clark slashing her throat with a knife, nearly decapitating her.
After murdering Bianca, he posted gruesome pictures of her body on his Instagram story. He also posted the images on Discord, a gaming website and 4chan which Bianca frequently used.
One of the Instagram posts showed a picture of a road with him driving. The picture was taken before he killed Bianca in which he wrote: Here comes Hell. It’s redemption, right? Another photo showed him standing over her dead body with the caption I’m sorry, Bianca. Later on, he posted a photo in which he was seen holding a knife with bloodstains on his clothes and face.
At around 7:20 am, a person reported the police about the images. When they reached the crime scene, Clark became suicidal. He stabbed his neck with the same knife. Then, he laid on the tarp that concealed Bianca’s body and started taking selfies, the police told.
Clark was arrested and taken to a hospital for surgery. After his condition stabilized, He has released front the hospital on Monday and taken to the Oneida County jail. He has been charged with second-degree murder, and other charges can also be filed against him as the investigation is still ongoing.
The two had met just two months before through Instagram and had a romantic relationship. Devin’s sister told that Charles had become a close family friend whom they’d met and trusted very much.
