Last year, police officers in South Carolina were tipped off about a possible kidnapping which eventually led to the home of serial killer Todd Kohlhepp. Once on the property, police discovered a storage container with a woman inside. The cat was out of the bag so to speak and what followed led to a series of gruesome discoveries.
According to Viral Nova:
The victim, 30-year-old Kala Brown, and her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles Carver, went missing on August 31 after going there to do a cleaning job for Kohlhepp, who they had no idea was a dangerous serial killer. After shooting Carver to death, Kohlhepp kidnapped Brown, kept her inside the container with a chain padlocked around her neck, raped her multiple times, and told her he had bodies buried on his property. Police did later find two of his victims’ bodies, 29-year-old Johnny Joe Coxie and his wife, 26-year-old Meagan Leigh McCraw-Coxie, thereafter arresting him, but they weren’t the only other people he murdered.
In the footage below, police open up the container where Brown was held for so long. Though it isn’t shown in this video, the officers had to use bolt cutters to remove the chain fastened around her neck. That’s when she told them what had happened to Carver.
Following his arrest a few days later, Kohlhepp confessed to killing four other people in a 2003 shootout inside Superbike Motorsports, a motorcycle shop in Chesnee. About the shooting, he says, “I cleared that building in under 30 seconds.”
While in custody, Kohlhepp also calmly told police in detail how he killed each of his seven victims, even bragging about it at times.
Kohlhepp pleaded guilty on 7 counts of murder charges, but police believe he may be responsible for a number of more murders over the years. Anyone who acts that calmly and brags about what he did definitely has more skeletons in his closet. Hopefully, police will get to the bottom of this. He was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences plus 60 years without the possibility of parole.
