    WA - Amber Coplin, 30, brutally murdered in her Port Orchard home, 3 Nov 2014

    I'll be surprised if this doesn't become a fairly big story.

    KIRO TV report
    Inquisitr report

    --

    I don't use 4chan but I am familiar with it. Here's some context that might help you understand:

    4chan is a very popular message board that is known for being completely anonymous. There are dozens of subforums for different topics ranging from anime to politics. The majority of the memes and internet "catchphrases" (Rickrolling, "I Can Have Cheeseburger", LOLcats, My Little Pony, etc) over the past decade originated on 4chan.

    This story broke on /b/. /b/ is the forum where anything goes and almost all of it is purposefully offensive. It's this very fast-paced and confusing flurry of porn, gore, everyday topics, egging people on to do awful things, anime, anime porn, cartoon gore, and small talk. It's by far the most popular and well-known subforum on 4chan and it's grown this strange culture around it, where everything can be laughed at and nothing is sacred.

    (modsnip) there are some people joking around about the murder. This is normal /b/ fare and it's a product of internet anonymity and the 'culture' I mentioned. But I think a lot of it is also because people didn't really believe it; people will play sick hoaxes on that site and many probably just assumed it was some idiot screwing around with some old pics he found online.

    Apparently the post was put up at 2:54PM and the body was discovered at 3:30. The news is saying it was a family member who found her.

    I have a screenshot of the post in question with the pictures + text. (modsnip)

    If you don't want to see the pics - and I 100% understand - but want to see the text, this is what was said (verbatim). Other posters are marked as ''anon''.

    Killer: [starts thread; posts first image] Turns out its way harder to strangle someone to death than it looks in the movies.
    Anon 1: um, duh. cause those people are ACTING.
    Killer: She fought so Damn hard [posts second image]
    Anon 2: timestamp [I assume he's requesting a timestamp for proof that this is legit]
    Anon 3: Because thats why its called a movie and not real life syou dumb ass
    Anon 4: u w0t m8?
    Killer: [posts third image] 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 [expletive] news. I have to lose my phone now.
    Anon 5: Even I can do it!

    Wow!
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    The missing and murdered cannot cry out for Justice. It is the duty for the living to do so for them.

    That's incredibly f-ed up.

    I hope he rots in jail.

    I know that crime can happen anywhere, but something as sick and bizarre as this in Port Orchard ..... well, color me shocked.

    From the local paper:

    “This is not a random target of opportunity where somebody decided to kick in a door and kill somebody,” Wilson said.
    And they're looking for her car:
    The sheriff’s office was searching Tuesday night for her car, a gold 2001 Ford Focus with the Washington license plate 495-YLY.

    Well, it's claim to fame is that romance author Debbie Macomber is from there. ;-) The town itself has probably under 20,000 people, but there are a lot more in the surrounding areas. It's across an inlet from the city of Bremerton; lots of people in PO used to work at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard in Bremerton. I have friends who live less than half a mile from the crime scene and it's not the kind of place where I ever worried about visiting them. Mostly single family homes, some apartments and condos in that area, a golf course and the largest elementary school in the district very nearby. There are plenty of break-ins, petty theft, that kind of stuff, but murder is quite rare.

    The interwebz are exploding about this. There are pictures of the suspect out there, but I'm too far behind to catch them as they are being deleted by moderators (of other boards).

    Neighbors say they don't know much about the woman, and they didn't hear anything suspicious Tuesday. Several neighbors said this woman and her son just moved in a few months ago. The woman also lived with a man who has not been seen at the house since the murder, neighbors told Q13 FOX News.

    Her son found the body when he returned home from school.

    Her friends are convinced it is the man she has had an on again off again relationship with since she was a young teenager. Nobody has seen him and he deleted his social media accounts yesterday.

    Please don't look at the photos. They're bad.

    If they name a guy named David C as a suspect we will know her friends were right.

    On the above Facebook, a person by the name of Dave K is being sought per family (there's a screenshot of the victim's sister's post with his picture and a picture of the car).

    Schools in the area are no longer on lockdown because police have verified the suspect in the murder I'd no longer in the state. Got that from the school district website.
