CHESTER COUNTY, Pa. (CBS) — Hundreds turned out to pay their respects at a funeral service for 18-year old Bianca Roberson held in West Chester Friday morning.
Roberson was shot and killed during a road rage incident in Chester County.
Upwards of 800 people packed into Saint Paul’s Baptist Church as the pastor gave an emotional sermon, while family and friends reflected on Bianca’s life.
She was remembered as a smart and caring girl with a bright future. The recent Bayard Rustin High School grad was set to attend Jacksonville University in the fall to pursue a career in criminal justice and maybe in the FBI.
It’s a career many believe she would have excelled in.
“That’s what made her special. She didn’t care what others thought about her. She did what she knew was right for herself and for others.”
Meanwhile, Roberson’s accused killer, 28-year old David Desper, is being held in prison without bail after turning himself in to police on Sunday.
Desper is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on the 13th.
