A man suspected of killing his girlfriend near Seattle, Washington earlier this week and posting pictures of her body online surrendered himself to police Wednesday night in Oregon.

David Kalac, 33, turned himself over to police in Wilsonville — 20 miles south of Portland — Wednesday night after briefly evading police earlier in the day. Kalac is suspected of killing his girlfriend, 30-year-old Amber Lynn Coplin, in Port Orchard, Washington on Tuesday, and posting grisly photos of her body on a 4Chan message board, along with a comment about how she was killed, and about wanting to be fatally shot by police.

Coplin’s body was discovered by her 13-year-old son in a room with “bad news” written on the blinds and “she killed me first” on a picture. Police found the word “dead” written on Coplin’s driver’s license.

Coplin’s son reported hearing the two argue on Tuesday, and police issued a warrant for Kalac early Wednesday, which led to a brief chase of Kalac in Coplin’s 2001 Ford Focus. The car was later found abandoned in Oregon Wednesday afternoon.

On Wednesday night, Kalac reportedly walked up to an officer patrolling near a parking lot and identified himself.

“He basically said, ‘I have a warrant for my arrest,'” Clackamas County Sheriff’s Sgt. Nate Thompson told the Associated Press.

Kalac has been charged with second-degree-murder and is being held on $2 million-bail in Portland. Kalac has prior convictions in Washington and Virginia for assault, burglary and DUI.
