Writing about the murder on Instagram, Clark's brother James Ward, who is currently stationed with the U.S. Air Force in Alaska, said that he couldn't understand why his brother would have committed such an atrocity.

"I hate you, You took away so many peoples opportunities in life. Hers, yours. Friends. Families. I ask my self, what the f*** happened. I read everything online and can't believe it's true, like that's not you. It can't be. You wouldn't do that," he said.

"F*** I love you bro, always will, but people loved her. Look how much her families hurting, her friends. It's sad, So young, all of you., Here comes hell, redemption right? Now you're condemned and it's gonna be a living hell. I'm glad you're alive, and it hurts to think of you going through that, but you put yourself there. You made her family suffer so much. I watched the vigil, couldn't f***ing keep it together, just wish you'd talked to me. We're family," Ward added.

I'm not the kind of guy who's good with emotions, or talking about things, or expressing myself. That was you, the outgoing one, who would always go out and catch snakes, and try to tame bees, who had a pet squirrel. Always told me to reach for the stars, put my name in the sky and never let it fall down. The fearless one. You made so much out of so little, came from nothing and always strived for something more. Inspired me. Whenever I'd talk about myself it'd always come back to me somehow talking about an experience with you. Because you're my big brother. The man I look up to. God we'd play so many video games growing up, so much time spent at pop pops. So much time spent walking around Fulton in the middle of winter freezing our asses off just to hang out. Going to the gym to get them gains. The subway sandwhich, strange but good, hell anything you ate was out there. Because you're out there. You taught me fashion, the sense of being outgoing, stand out. Even now I don't know what to think, how do you deal with emotions. I love you, my best friend, we finally got close after a shitty childhood, I am who I am because of you. I hate you, You took away so many peoples opportunities in life. Hers, yours. Friends. Families. I ask my self, what the fuck happened. I read everything online and can't believe it's true, like that's not you. It can't be. You wouldn't do that. You say, never forget me, message me and say to remember you as you were. I want to but can't. People I don't know asking me what you're like, how you could do this. Well this is my answer, why I'm writing this. I don't know. I just don't. Never will. The Bran Man I remember is the one I described before. Funny as fuck. Always busy. Fuck I love you bro, always will, but people loved her. Look how much her families hurting, her friends. It's sad, So young, all of you., Here comes hell, redemption right? Now you're condemned and it's gonna be a living hell. I'm glad you're alive, and it hurts to think of you going through that, but you put yourself there. You made her family suffer so much. I watched the vigil, couldn't fucking keep it together, just wish you'd talked to me. We're family.❤️

Recent high school graduate Devins connected with Clark over Instagram two months ago, with their relationship progressing into an intimate one where they had met each other's families, according to a police statement.

The two attended a concert in New York City on Saturday evening, before driving back home. Once back in Utica an argument broke out between the two, upon which Clark brandished a knife and proceeded to murder Devins.

He then proceeded to take gruesome photos of Devins' body before posting them on social media. One of the images of Devins' dead body was posted on Instagram Live had the on-screen caption "I'm sorry Bianca." Another image taken looking out a car window is captioned "Here comes Hell. It's redemption, right?"

Clark also updated his social media account to imply that he planned on taking his own life. Before his Instagram page was deactivated, his bio read:

"10/06/1997 - 7/14/19
Just know that I feel no pain now."

Officers managed to disarm Clark and take him into custody. He was rushed to hospital with severe injuries and after undergoing emergency surgery, he is expected to survive.

The family of the victim released a statement saying that they were thankful for the support they had received in the aftermath of the tragedy.

"We are very grateful for the outpouring of love and sympathy we have received from our Friends, Family, Bianca's Friends and the whole community. Your prayers help to strengthen us through this difficult time," they said.

"Bianca, age 17, was a talented artist, a loving sister, daughter, and cousin, and a wonderful young girl, taken from us all too soon. She is now looking down on us, as she joins her cat, Belle, in heaven. Bianca's smile brightened our lives. She will always be remembered as our Princess," the statement continued.

Hundreds of people attended a candlelit vigil for Devins on Monday evening, where the crowd repeatedly chanted "love, not violence," according to reports.
