Meanwhile, Clark is being held in jail at Oneida Prison on charges of second-degree murder.
Friends said that Clark was a close friend of the family who knew Bianca well and not just an & # 39; internet friend & # 39; that she met on Instagram.
According to the police, the couple had been to a concert in New York City on Saturday night and later drove back to Utica.

They were in Clark's SUV for a few hours. According to internet chat rooms and comments Bianca had made to friends in her last hours, they smoked marijuana together in the car.
Earlier in the night another young man was there. One of Bianca & # 39; s friends told Rolling Stone that Clark had become jealous because he thought she was flirting with the other man.
Messages Bianca sent from the concert indicated that Clark saw that she kissed another man and became jealous.
Utica Police lieutenant Bryan Coromato said they received a phone call on Sunday morning that led them to the crime scene.
& # 39; We received a phone call from one of the parents who were worried about some of the things that were currently in the relationship, & # 39; he said.
Clark posted a photo of her body with the inscription & # 39; sorry that I am Bianca & # 39; on Instagram, which was criticized because it had not been deleted for almost a day.
He also scribbled & # 39; May you never forget me & # 39; on the road next to them.
He would also have posted a photo on a Discord server, with the caption & # 39; Sorry fuckers, you'll have to find someone else to run. & # 39;

After photos of her body appeared online, countless people called 911 to report it. The police were already trying to find the couple when he called himself.
The police arrived on Sunday morning to find Clark on the floor next to a black SUV.
When the officer approached, he started stabbing himself in the neck with a knife.
The officer asked for urgent medical help, while Clark then placed himself on a green canvas that was on the floor.
He was then taken to hospital for emergency surgery, describing his injuries as & # 39; serious & # 39; but not life threatening.
It was unclear whether Clark had a lawyer to speak on his behalf.
In practice, social media users attempted to re-post the photos of the heinous murder to get more followers after they were removed from Clark's account.
They have been convicted on a large scale and the singer whose concert Bianca and Clark had visited even made a public appeal and asked fans to stop sending her the graphic photos.
