'It's an everyday pain': Balloon release held for Bianca Roberson to mark 5 years since her murder

WEST CHESTER, Pa. - Family and friends gathered for a balloon release to mark five years since Bianca Roberson’s life was taken in a road rage incident back in 2017. Bianca’s mother, Michelle is still shaken to her core over the loss of her daughter, who was only 18-years-old when she was shot and killed. "It’s an everyday pain," said Michelle. "You wake up every morning, and they’re not here, and they’re not coming back."Authorities say David Desper shot Bianca Roberson in the head as they drove on Route 100 in West Chester in June 2017.

Investigators say she was in the right lane and Desper was to her left trying to merge as his lane was ending. Police ultimately ruled Bianca’s death a result of road rage. In 2018, Desper pleaded guilty to third-degree murder charges and was later sentenced to 20-40 years in prison, but for Bianca’s grieving mother, it will never be enough. "People keep telling me it gets better with time.

It gets worse with time because as the years go by, it's just more years that you have not seen them," Michelle said. On Tuesday evening, Bianca’s loved ones held up purple and orange balloons—purple being Bianca’s favorite color and orange to represent gun violence. RELATEDMan pleads guilty to third-degree murder in killing of girl in West Chester road rage caseMan who killed teen in road rage shooting sentenced to 20-40 yearsFamily receives honorary college degree for West Chester teen killed in road rage shootingPurple Ball to be held in Bianca Roberson's memoryBianca Roberson's father remembers his daughter, speaks out about suspectBianca was murdered just days before she was set to leave for Jacksonville State on a full scholarship.

Emmerdale's Al star swipes at BBC as he brands ITV 'poster child for Covid rules'
Emmerdale star Michael Wildman, best known for his role as Al Chapman in the ITV Dales, has taken a subtle swipe at rival channel BBC.He branded ITV the "poster channel" for Covid social distancing rules in a veiled jab at rival soaps like EastEnders.Despite his swipe, all three major soaps used distancing measures in their filming, with crew members substituting tennis balls on sticks for mouths in racy kissing scenes and employing various other camera tricks.Soap fans in particular poked fun at Tyrone's 'kiss' with Alina on the Corrie cobbles, with regular extras Alex Mulvaney and his wife Hannah stepping in as substitute stars - not too successfully.But now social distancing has been scrapped, actors can get back to some serious snogging, which Chas star Lucy Pargeter admitted was "very weird".Speaking exclusively to Daily Star and other press, she admitted of the upcoming scenes - which see Chas and Al share a snog after consoling each other about their woes: "It was very weird. "Instead of people saying, 'You can’t stand next to them, you can’t touch them, you’re too close, you’re a metre away - don’t go any closer!', now they’re saying, 'Can you just stand there literally lip to lip, and we’ll just line up the cameras?'"It’s very strange going back the other way now."Michael then agreed: "Absolutely, it was incredibly weird.
