  Police have found a car believed stolen by a man charged with killing his girlfriend, posting pictures of her body online and writing that he wanted authorities to find and kill him.

Kitsap County sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson in Washington state said police in Portland, Oregon, about 160 miles away, found the dead woman's car abandoned late Wednesday afternoon. There was no sign of Amber Lynn Coplin's live-in boyfriend, David Michael Kalac, 33, Wilson said.

Portland police briefly chased the car early Wednesday.

Kalac has been charged with second-degree murder in the death. He has a criminal history in Washington state and Virginia that includes convictions for assault, burglary and DUI, Wilson said.

Deputies have confirmed that gruesome photos posted on a website are of the victim and the Port Orchard, Washington, crime scene, Wilson said.

"He's our primary suspect," Wilson said Wednesday. "It stands to reason that in all likelihood he is the person who posted those photographs."

Coplin's body was found Tuesday in her Port Orchard apartment by her 13-year-old son, Wilson said.

Hours earlier, the boy had heard her arguing with Kalac, detectives said in court papers. An arrest warrant was issued Wednesday.

Authorities believe Kalac escaped in Coplin's car, a gold 2001 Ford Focus.

Police say they found Coplin's body in a bedroom. Near her head was her driver's license with the word "dead" written on it. The words "bad news" were written on blinds. And the words "she killed me first" were written on a picture on the wall.

Coplin's son told police that his mother and Kalac argued loudly Monday night, court records show. Witnesses also said they heard what sounded like a violent argument and loud thumping and banging noises coming from the apartment in the city west of Seattle across Puget Sound.

The teenager told police he thought his mom was sleeping in and Kalac was gone when he left the apartment Tuesday morning, according to court documents.

According to Wilson's account, the boy came home from school Tuesday morning and took a nap. When he woke up that afternoon, he noticed the car was missing, went to check on his mother and "found her unresponsive," Wilson said.

At that point, the teen called his father, who is Coplin's estranged husband. The man came over, found the body about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday and called 911, the sheriff's spokesman said.

The caller reported that Coplin's face was bashed in, her car was missing and she was bloody and bruised, court documents show.

Kalac texted a friend from his cellphone on Tuesday morning telling the friend that he would read about him in the news.

Wilson said at some point Kalac took Coplin's car and made the three-hour drive to Portland, where a police officer spotted the vehicle about 1:15 a.m. Wednesday.

Wilson said it was likely Kalac was the driver but that was not confirmed. He added that investigators believe he is the sole suspect in Coplin's death and they are not looking for any accomplices.

The officer tried to stop the driver early Wednesday, but the car sped away. The chase was called off because the car was swerving into oncoming traffic.

Poor kid, to be the one to discover the body! This looks more like someone who has lost it
