A 21-year-old man from upstate New York is accused of slitting the throat of his girlfriend and then posting the horrific photos of her dead body online. Police say Brandon Andrew Clark got into an argument with 17-year-old Bianca Devins after they went to a concert in Queens. He then drove to Utica, where he killed her on the side of the road.
After Devins was dead, Clark took photos of her body and posted them on Instagram and Discord, a video chat app used by gamers. Devins had a large following on social media, and some of her concerned fans called the police when they saw the photos Clark had posted online.
After slitting Devins' throat, Clark covered her body with a tarp and called the police on himself. He threatened to kill himself and slit his own throat when officers arrived. He was rushed to the hospital and treated for his injuries. He was transferred to Oneida County Correctional Facility, where he was charged with second-degree murder.
