Bianca Devin was an 17 year-old New Yorker with a modest following on social media. At first glance her murder seemed like a social media stalker, Brandon Clark (21 year-old) went bonkers and killed her but it was later revealed the two had a real-life relationship, though it may not have been a romantic one.
Bianca’s death is an absolute tragedy and the media over sensationalized her death by calling her and the culprit social media influencers. The press was just trying to put a sound bite in their article.
There was also a rumor that there were pictures of the victim at the time of her death posted on Instagram, which turned out to be false.
This young girl’s death was a terrible news already without the media piling on.
