An upstate man allegedly slit the throat of a teenage Instagram star he was dating — then posted a grisly photo of her lifeless body to social media along with a message that said “sorry,” according to police and reports Monday.
Brandon Andrew Clark, 21, of Syracuse allegedly posted the gut-wrenching image of Bianca Devins, 17, on Instagram early Sunday — after the pair had attended a concert in Queens — before bizarrely calling the cops on himself, Lt. Bryan Coromato said.
When police found him parked in his car on a dead-end street in Utica, he allegedly slit his own throat and then posted a photo of his neck gushing blood on Instagram, too, the police officer said.
Devins — who has more than 50,000 followers on Instagram — was found dead outside a car and Clark was rushed to the hospital, where he underwent surgery, according to Coromato.
The pair, who met on a dating app, had been in a relationship for roughly two months when they went to a concert in Queens on Saturday night, according to Coromato.
They got into an argument at the show and drove to Utica, where police believe Clark allegedly pulled onto a side street and killed her, Coromato said.
The Instagram post in question read, “I am sorry Bianca” — and showed the image of Devins with a cut throat, according to co-ed.com, a news website that obtained the posting before it was removed. Clark is active on the website 4chan.
Instagram had removed Clark’s account with the handle @yesjuliet by Monday morning.
The bio for his Instagram account read “10/06/1997 – 7/14/19. Just know that I feel no pain now,” according to the news site.
