Serial Killer Todd Kohlhepp Claims Two More South Carolina Murders
SPARTANBURG, SC — South Carolina serial killer Todd Kohlhepp, who is already serving life in prison for seven murders, has now told authorities that he killed two more people.
Kohlhepp said he buried the two additional victims near Interstate 26 in Spartanburg County in the northwest part of the state, according to police, who say that they have not yet been able to confirm anything Kohlhepp has told them.
Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said investigators will accompany Kohlhepp to the supposed location of the bodies, according to the Greenville News.
Kohlhepp pleaded guilty to the multiple murders in May 2017.
He was arrested in 2016 after police rescued missing woman Kala Brown from a shipping container where she was chained at the neck. Brown told investigators she saw Kohlhepp shoot and kill her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles Carver. Investigators found Carver in a shallow grave on Kohlhepp’s property.
Brown has stated publicly that Kohlhepp raped her repeatedly while holding her captive. While Brown was imprisoned, Kohlhepp admitted to her that he had killed and buried other victims on his property, and also killed four people in the Superbike Motorsports motorcycle shop in November 2003, according to the prosecutor.
During the years when Kohlhepp was on a killing spree, he led a real double life, also enjoying a successful career in the real estate industry.
Following a plea deal, Kohlhepp will serve seven consecutive life terms plus 60 years on kidnapping, sexual assault, and other charges.
Kohlhepp also formerly served 14 years in prison for pleading guilty to a kidnapping in Arizona that he committed when he was 15 years old — when he forced his 14-year-old victim into his home at gunpoint and raped her.
