Bianca Devins' body was found Sunday underneath a tarp in Utica, New York, after an officer encountered Clark. Online followers theorize that sometime after Devins' alleged killing and before the suspect was taken to the hospital, Clark allegedly posted pictures of the victim with her throat violently slit on his Instagram stories.
A Utica police spokesman, Sgt. Michael Curley, confirmed the authenticity of the post.
In response to the incident, Facebook said it had initially found and removed content from Instagram Stories linked to the suspect, before removing his accounts from both Facebook and Instagram following confirmation of his arrest and identification by police.
Clark's Instagram page bio suggests that he attempted suicide following the alleged killing of Bianca Devins.
After the attack, Clark allegedly logged on to Discord under his username "aperatia" and posted a photo of Devins' body, (see image below) writing, 'sorry fxckers, you're going to have to find somebody else to orbit'.
Clark, 21, reportedly called police on himself, according to Lt. Bryan Coromato. "They're kids." Brandon's reference to Bianca is unsure, some say he stalked her after a live performance whereas others say they had been in a relationship.
Officers were dispatched to the location of the call where they found Clark laying outside of the vehicle. "However, he is expected to survive". Devins' body was underneath the tarp.
