ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A 17-year-old girl with a small social media following in New York was killed by a man she'd met on Instagram, who then posted photos of her corpse online.

The pictures were redistributed for several hours, including by online posters who made light of the teen's death. Police identified the slain girl Monday as Bianca Devins, of Utica, New York.
