Photos of a woman's naked, dead body appear to have been posted to the 4chan website before police were called to a home in South Kitsap, Wash., Tuesday.
The anonymous poster told others on the image-sharing website the woman was strangled and they should watch the news because the woman's son would be home from school soon and would find her body.
"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," the user wrote.
Police were called to a home in South Kitsap, located 50 km west of Seattle, around 3:26 p.m. Tuesday after a family member discovered a woman's body, the Port Orchard Independent reported .
Deputy Scott Wilson said they were aware of the photos, which appeared to be posted before 3 p.m. Tuesday. Police haven't confirmed a cause of death.

Police in Oregon have arrested a man accused of brutally murdering his girlfriend then posting gruesome pictures of the scene onto the Internet, authorities said.
David Michael Kalac, 33, was arrested without incident on Wednesday at 8:50 p.m. local time near Portland after eluding police for hours, the Wilsonville Police Department said via Twitter.
Kalac is suspected of killing his girlfriend, 30-year-old Amber Lynn Coplin, on Tuesday at her Port Orchard, Washington-area home where he was also living, said the Kitsap County Sheriff's Office.
Coplin's body was found by her 13-year-old son after he returned home from school, the sheriff's office said. The office added that after the killing, reports from around the country flooded in saying that graphic images of the scene had been posted online.
Authorities said Kalac indicated how the victim was killed in comments on the file sharing website where he uploaded the photos, which showed the slain woman naked in her apartment.
Police said Kalac fled the home in Coplin's car, and later led Oregon authorities on a brief high speed chase early on Wednesday morning. Authorities had issued an arrest warrant for Kalac on the charge of second degree murder on Wednesday.
Police said that Kalac had a long history of violent crime in Washington and Virginia.
The Kitsap County Sheriff's Office said Kalac would be booked in an Oregon jail before being extradited to Washington with a $2 million bail.
Local television news station KING 5 said that Kalac had posted messages on social media indicating that he was hoping to be killed by police when he was found. The station reported that Coplin had been beaten to death.

I thought tough guy was going to commit suicide by cop? Let me guess. Like the coward that he had already proven himself to be, he instead pissed his pants and meekly surrendered. Murdering someone, then posting pictures about it (knowing that her son would find the body, and the creep boasting about this fact), what a piece of work...
