A murder suspect reportedly posted images of his brutal murder of his girlfriend on Imgur and 4chan before attempting to evade police.

An anonymous 4chan user posted the graphic images, which appear to show the body of a dead woman, on the site on Tuesday.

He also posted a message stating he "just wanted to share the pics" and was planning "suicide by cop".

4Chan users reacted with a mixture of disbelief, encouragement and cynicism when the pictures were posted.

"Duh, cause those people are ACTING," said one.

"She fought so damn hard," said the person posting the images. To that another user offered a "pro tip" to tie the victims hands and feet first.

The poster said:

"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."

According to KPTV the man had written the words "she killed me first" on a picture at the scene, and "bad news" on the blinds.

The links to the images were posted below a news story concerning the murder of a local woman in her early 30s.

Later on Tuesday police said that a local man, David Kalac, was taken into custody having turned himself after a manhunt, and was suspected of killing his girlfriend. He has now been charged with second-degree murder in the death of Amber Lynn Coplin.

Kitsap County sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson said that police were investigating links between the images and the killing.

They have not confirmed that Kalac was the man behind the photos, but said the man had sent his friend a message that said "you'll see me in the news".

"There will be no more me. Ever. You'll read about it. That's all," he wrote according to court documents.
