Bianca Roberson, a recent high school graduate bound for college this fall, was shot in killed in a senseless road rage shooting in Chester County, Pennsylvania. A suspect, David Desper, turned himself in early Sunday morning (July 2) after a massive manhunt was underway to find Roberson’s killer using surveillance video and tips from eyewitnesses.
District Attorney Tom Hogan said 28-year-old David Desper of Trainer, Delaware County, turned himself in about 2 a.m. Sunday in the killing of the young woman — who had just shopped with her mother and grandmother for items to bring with her to her freshman year in college.
“This is the story of a savage and senseless murder,” said Hogan.
The motive was as trivial as it gets, he said: “Because somebody didn’t want to give way. Because somebody didn’t want to merge into a lane of traffic.”
He said Desper, on the Route 100 bypass at the same time as Roberson,, “jockeyed for position and wasn’t happy. So he pulled out a gun and shot Bianca in the head.”
A bullet fired from the suspect’s truck struck Roberson in the left side of her head, officials said. Her car, a green Chevrolet Malibu, ran off the bypass and crashed.
Roberson was planning to attend Jacksonville University in Florida this fall and had hopes of becoming an FBI agent according to the family. A YouCaring page started by a family friend has raised over $25,o00 for Roberson.
