Bianca Devins, 17, was murdered by a friend in Utica, N.Y. The killer posted images of her lifeless body online, which went viral. Making matters worse, the images were sent to her family.
"Social media was a huge part of Bianca's life," says Bianca's mother Kim Devins." And online, she could be whoever she wanted to be.
An image of Bianca's body first appeared on the social media platform Discord on July 14, 2019. At first, friends thought it was a fake because it was not unusual for people on the platform to post disturbing images to get a rise out of others. That thinking changed when Brandon Clark, who had been out with Bianca the night she died, called 911.
