Video recently released by South Carolina authorities shows local officers prying open a large container found on the property of a serial killer last November and then stepping inside to uncover his secret.
What they found was 30-year-old Kala Brown, a woman who authorities later revealed was kidnapped in August by Todd Kohlhepp and “chained up like a dog,” according to news station WSAV.
According to CBS, the kidnapping occurred after Brown and her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles Carver, showed up on the suspect’s property for a cleaning job.
“Todd Kohlhepp shot Charlie Carver three times in the chest, wrapped him in a blue tarp, put him in the bucket of the tractor, locked me down here,” Brown could be heard telling authorities in the released video. “I’ve never seen [Carver] again. He says he’s dead and buried. He says there are several bodies dead and buried out here.”
But Kohlhepp told her more than just that. On the way to the hospital, Brown revealed how “Kohlhepp confessed to killing a married couple before she was captured, and about killing four people at a Spartanburg County motorcycle shop — murders that were unsolved for 13 years,” as reported by the The Associated Press.
Had local authorities not located Brown, nobody knows for certain just many more people this serial killer would have eventually murdered.
Watch the chilling rescue footage below:
Brown and her boyfriend had been missing for approximately two months when authorities used her cell phone to locate the general area where she had vanished.
She later revealed to television’s “Dr. Phil” that he raped her daily, according to The AP.
Kohlhepp pleaded guilty just last month to killing seven people over a period of 13 years, including Brown’s boyfriend, and kidnapping and sexual assault, according to CNN. He wound up receiving seven consecutive life sentences plus 30 years for the kidnapping and 30 years for the sexual assaults on Brown.
Even by the standards of serial killers, this is a very sick and disturbed man — one who should have ideally been caught and locked away a long time ago. The victims’ families might yearn for more direct vengeance, but thank goodness he’s finally behind bars, where he will remain for the rest of his miserable existence.
