Pennsylvania Teen Arrested After Alarming Instagram Homicide Confession

A Pennsylvania teenager has been arrested after posting a video to Instagram that included an alarming murder confession.

A 16-year-old male posted the video that led to his Friday arrest in Bensalem, Pennsylvania.

"Bensalem Police said 9-1-1 operators received a call from parents of a concerned party who said their daughter received an Instagram video chat from a 16-year-old acquaintance, later identified as 16-year-old Joshua Cooper, who said he just killed someone," Fox News reported.

"In the video, Cooper flipped the video image to show the legs of a person covered in blood, before asking for help with disposing of the body," it added.

Cooper was reportedly charged as an adult with homicide, possessing instruments of crime and tampering with evidence. He was later denied bail and sent to Edison Juvenile Detention Center.

Another report revealed the arrest by police regarding the suspect.

"As officers arrived, police said, a juvenile boy ran out from the back of the trailer," the New York Post reported.

"The officers then went inside the mobile home and saw a deceased girl on the floor of the bathroom with a gunshot wound," it added. "Police said they also noticed 'substantial steps' were taken to clean up the scene."

Police are continuing to investigate the case and have asked anyone with information regarding the incident to contact them.

The tragic loss adds to a string of growing violence among students in recent months, including tragic shootings at multiple schools, such as the Uvalde elementary school shooting in Texas that killed several students and two teachers.
