Bianca Devins was killed in Utica, New York, Sunday morning, and the images of her body are flooding Instagram.

The images of Devin’s body were posted on Brandon Clark‘s account on Discord, a messaging app. Other users told the police.

The images were also posted on his Instagram account and were removed – but they weren’t removed quickly enough. They had already been copied and shared by other users.


Instagram users who saw the images left comments on the posts on Clark’s account, urging his followers to view the copied images on their profiles.

In an attempt to drown out the spread of images, other users started posting photographs of her alive, as well as pictures of flowers and animals, using her name as the hashtag.

Clark’s account has been removed and the company says its working with the police. They also said they are using a combination of technology and reports from users to remove other accounts attempting to spread the images.

In a statement posted on Facebook, Utica police said it appeared that the pair met on Instagram two months ago. They went to a concert together the previous evening and argued on their way back. Officers searched for the couple after Clark called emergency services himself and made “incriminating statements” as well as “alluding to the fact that he was going to harm himself,” the police said.
