David Kalac's 4chan Murder Confession refers to a 33-year-old Washington state resident's alleged confession to murdering his girlfriend, Amber Lynn Coplin, on 4chan's /b/ (random) board in early November 2014.
On November 4th, 2014, an anonymous 4chan user submitted several photos of what appeared to be a woman's corpse, along with a confession that he strangled her to death and would be attempting to taunt police into shooting him upon their arrival at his home (shown below).
The same day, the Kitsap County, Washington news site Kitsap Sun reported that police were investigating a suspected homicide involving the death of a woman in her early 30s, who was found dead by her 13-year-old son at her home in the Port Orchard area. That evening, KOMO 4 news anchor Russ Bowen tweeted a photo outside the house where the woman was found dead (shown below).
News Media Coverage
In the coming days, several news sites published articles about the murder and suspected 4chan confession, including The Daily Dot, The Huffington Post, CNN, The Daily Beast, The Washington Post, The Daily Mail and Gawker.
On November 5th, Kalac was taken into custody by police 20 miles southwest of Portland, Oregon. That evening, the @WilsonvillePD Twitter feed tweeted a photograph of Kalac seated and handcuffed, noting that he had been taken into custody "without incident and cooperative" (shown below).
On November 6th, NBC News reported that Kalac had surrendered to police after previously evading them during a chase by swerving into oncoming traffic.
