Road rage vic­tim mourned

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - WORLD -

WEST CH­ESTER, Pa. — The brother of a young woman fa­tally shot by an­other mo­torist dur­ing an act of road rage in Penn­syl­va­nia says the fam­ily is grap­pling with the sense­less­ness of her death. Rod­ney Rober­son Jr. spoke Fri­day at the fu­neral for 18-year-old Bianca Rober­son. She was killed in a high­way con­fronta­tion last week while still in her mov­ing car. More than 300 mourn­ers at­tended the church ser­vice out­side Philadelphia. Wreaths of pur­ple and white flow­ers dot­ted the church, and pho­to­graphs of a smil­ing Bianca Rober­son were never out of sight. Rober­son had just grad­u­ated high school and was plan­ning to at­tend Jack­sonville Univer­sity in Florida this fall. Twenty-eight-year-old David Des­per of Trainer, Penn­syl­va­nia, is charged with mur­der in her death. His at­tor­ney has de­clined to com­ment on the charge.
