Bianca Scholarship Fund Details & Family’s Statement
Bianca’s sister Olivia Devins (Liv Devins) shared the news on her Instagram handle that they are working on a fundraiser in Bianca’s name.

Fake Bianca Scholarship Funds On The Internet
The Devins/Williams family have further confirmed that internet users are trying to capitalize on their daughter Bianca’s murder. The fake fundraisers are demanding donations for Bianca Devins and the family. However, no one knows who started these funds and there are zero chances that the funds will reach the family.
Other internet funding raising sites are not authorized by the Family, and funds donated to those false sites will not be used for Bianca in any way.
However, there is another fundraiser being shared by Bianca Devins’ sister and step-father. Bianca’s stepfather confirms that the fundraiser is genuine and it is established to help the family with funeral and other expenses.
Contributions, in any amount, to ease the burden of this tragic incident are greatly appreciated. Before this incident, the Devins family had lost one of their household incomes and any donations will go towards any costs and living expenses for the family while they grieve.

Apart from creating fake fundraisers, many internet users also tried to manipulate people and gain followers. The manipulators claim they have more pictures and videos of the gruesome murder. And they will share after gaining 5k+ followers. One of Bianca Devins’ family members addressed these people with blinded humanity.
