David Michael Kalac Strangled Girlfriend Amber Lynn Coplin and Posted the Images Online
Oregon authorities have arrested a man accused of killing his girlfriend in Washington state and posting gruesome pictures of her body online.
David Michael Kalac, 33, was taken into custody near Portland late Wednesday by the Wilsonville Police Department.
The arrest came after an anonymous poster published photos Tuesday appearing to show the corpse of Amber Lynn Coplin, accompanied by the message:
“Turns out it’s way harder to strangle someone to death than it looks on the movies… She fought so Damn hard.”
In another message David Kalac posted:
“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 f*** news. I have to lose my phone now.”
Coplin’s 13-year-old son found her body shortly after the photos were published online.
NBC reports that an affadavit indicates Kalac, who is suspected of driving away in Coplin’s car following her murder late Monday or early Tuesday, texted friends with messages like:
“S*** is all f***** now. You’ll see me in the news.”
Police said that Kalac is cooperating with investigators.
Below are the images you all came here for.
