A follow-up thread on 4chan’s /b/ board on the news of the alleged Portland murder and suspect David Kalac.
A man arrested Wednesday night for the alleged murder of 30-year-old Amber Coplin in Port Orchard, Washington may have documented the act on a 4Chan thread. According to NBC, an affidavit written by deputies in the sheriff’s department of Kitsap County states that the crime scene “matched the deceased female, trauma we observed, and the residence interior” visible in the photos posted to 4chan.
The initial 4chan post first appeared on Tuesday at 2:56pm EST. An image of a naked woman with bruised eyelids and bloody ligature marks around her neck was accompanied by the text, “Turns out its way harder to strangle someone to death than it looks on the movies.” In a follow-up post with a fuller picture of the woman’s body, the user wrote, “She fought so Damn hard.” A few more posts down, the same user predicted his upcoming news coverage, as well as his exit strategy:
Check the news for port orchard Washington in a few hours. 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. I bought a bb gun that looks realistic enough. When they come, I’ll pull it and it will be suicide by cop. I understand the doubts. Just check the fucking news. I have to lose my phone now.
The images were posted to 4chan’s /b/ board, a place, as Ars wrote in 2011, “known for child pornography, adult pornography, targeting young kids for harassment, anti-social behavior of all kinds, hate speech, and just about anything else one might imagine.” The other posters’ reactions ranged from disbelief (“u w0t m8?”) to glib (“tell me about it. Pro tip: tie their hands and feet or you are gonna have a bad time”).
