Graphic pictures of murder victim Amber Lynn Coplin were uploaded to the social media site 4chan before her dead body was discovered on Tuesday.
Coplin’s naked body was found in her apartment by her teen son in Port Orchard, Wash. Her driver's license had the word "dead" written on it.
"She killed me first" was written on a wall, while "bad news" was scrawled on the window blinds, say police, reports NBC News.
According to The Smoking Gun, the anonymous poster who uploaded the grisly images to 4chan wrote: “Turns out its way harder to strangle someone to death than it looks on the movies. She fought so damn hard.”
The anonymous poster added, “Check the news for Port Orchard Washington in a few hours” and “Her son will be home from school soon. He’ll find her, then call the cops. I just wanted to share the pics before they find me.”
The father of Coplin's children and Coplin's sister claimed on Facebook today that the alleged killer is David Kalac (pictured above), who was Coplin's live-in boyfriend.
According to NBC News, police traced Kalac's cellphone, which included two texts to a friend that stated: "S--- is all f----d now. You'll see me in the news There will be no more me. Ever. You'll read about it. That's all."
Q 13 Fox notes that police saw Kalac driving Coplin's car at about 1 a.m. this morning in Portland, Ore.
Police chased Kalac, but he reportedly kept swerving into oncoming traffic and creating a dangerous situation, so police called off the high-speed chase.
The Kitsap Sun reports that court documents show Kalac "has a history of felony assault and harassment, including a conviction in April for domestic violence against another woman."
The South Kitsap School District in Washington State was placed on a modified lockdown today, even though there is no apparent threat to the schools, noted the The Epoch Times.
