A killer decapitated a popular Instagrammer he said was his girlfriend then shared photos of her dismembered corpse, it was claimed.
The suspected murder reportedly murdered the woman, named as 17 year-old Bianca Devins, at her home in Utica, upstate New York, on Sunday.
Bianca was a popular Instagrammer, who amassed over 35,000 followers across two profiles, the most popular of which was @escty. She was also an active and prolific user of the 4Chan image sharing site.
After killing her the suspect, whose name has not yet been released by police, is said to have then shared images of Devin’s body on his Instagram page with the caption ‘I’m sorry Bianca.’
He also changed his biographical information on the social media site, to read ’10/06/1997 – 7/14/19′, it is claimed.
Another Instagram story he appears to have posted was taken from a car driving down a darkened road, with the caption: ‘Here comes Hell.
He reportedly told them that he had killed his girlfriend and he wanted to harm himself with a knife.
Police were able to talk the man down, and he was taken to hospital. He is now in police custody.
They found the woman’s body moments late
Bianca’s fans have disputed the alleged killer’s claim he was her boyfriend, and questioned whether he had ever met her before Sunday’s murder.
The blogger’s sister Liv Devins confirmed her sibling’s death with a touching Instagram post.
It read: ‘I hate that I have to write this. I hate knowing you’re not going to ever come back home.
‘You were the best sister anyone could’ve ever asked for. Thank you for always being there for me.
‘Thank you for being the best sister I could ever imagine.
