DIGITAL INFATUATION: Attraction, Jealousy and Viral Vengeance

On the morning of July 14, 2019, while thousands gathered in the streets of Utica, NY for an annual running race, emergency dispatchers were receiving reports of a murder and a man who had posted graphic pictures on his social media. Brandon Clark then calls 911 and threatens to kill himself. What drove Brandon to murder 17-year-old model and internet personality Bianca Devins and to go viral on social media for the crime and his attempted suicide? This episode dives into a deadly case of digital infatuation.

A teenage woman has been found dead in a river in Roanoke, Virginia after her partner allegedly told police that he killed her this week.

Police arrived at the home shared by 18-year-old Adreonna Keffer and 22-year-old DeAngelo Bonds around 2:30 a.m. on Feb. 15. They’d received reports of “suspicious circumstances” at the residence. When they arrived, they found the home “in disarray with signs of a struggle,” according to a press release by the Roanoke police department.

Police at the scene found no one inside the apartment. But while they were searching the home, officers elsewhere in the city said they found Bonds sitting in his car in a parking lot, according to the release. Police said that he told them he had shot and killed Keffer inside their apartment before disposing of her body.

Following an “extensive search” on Monday, authorities found Keffer dead in the Roanoke River. Bonds was arrested and charged with second-degree murder.

Keffer is remembered for her “big heart” and love for her family, according to an obituary posted on a local funeral home’s website. She enjoyed caring for the elderly and riding four-wheelers.

Keffer and Bonds had been in a relationship for the past three years and were engaged to be married, according to Keffer’s Facebook profile. Her funeral will be held this Friday at John M. Oakey & Son Funeral Home in Salem, Va., according to the obituary.

Bonds was arraigned on Tuesday, and his next court date is set for March 19, according to online court records. He has been assigned a public defender, who has not been publicly named, according to the court.
