Serial killer Todd Kohlhepp, who is serving seven life sentences plus 60 years in prison for killing seven people, claims there are more victims. In an eight-page letter to the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg, he wrote, “At this point, I really don’t see a reason to give numbers or locations.”
In the letter dated November 28th, he added, “Yes there is more than seven. I tried to tell investigators and I did tell FBI, but it was blown off. It’s not an addition problem, it’s an multiplication problem. Leaves the state and leaves the country. Thank you private pilot’s license.”
Kohlhepp from North Carolina ran his own brokerage, TKA Real Estate, and was an amateur pilot and gun enthusiast.
Victim Kala Brown, who had been hired to clean Kohlhepp’s properties, was discovered chained up in a storage container on Kohlhepp’s 96-acre Woodruff estate – the video was released by a solicitor’s office and shocked the world. In a televised interview with Dr. Phil, Brown said Kohlhepp would brag to her that he was “nearing the triple digits” concerning the number of his victims.
The known victims include Brown’s boyfriend Charles David Carver, who was shot in the chest three times, and further bodies were found buried at the property. Kohlhepp later took over control of Carver’s Facebook which sparked suspicion and led the police to his property.
During his trial, Kohlepp confessed to killing four workers at a motorbike store in 2003 – he said he murdered them after the store manager made him angry.
Don Wood, chief division council with the bureau’s field office in Columbia, told the press, “We can’t comment specifically on what we’re doing, other than what I’ve said before — that we have a pending investigation.”
