Woman 'chained like a dog' by serial killer for months

Prior to his arrest, Kohlhepp had been a real estate agent for more than a decade in SC and used to boast on social media about his expertise with weapons and sex, according to the newspaper. Brown was working on Kohlhepp's property with her boyfriend when Kohlhepp approached the two of them and shot her boyfriend in the chest.

As reported by the Metro, after discovering Brown in the storage container, Kohlhepp took the investigators to the shallow grave where Brown's boyfriend, Carver, had been buried.

Brown tells the officers that Kohlhepp had shot Carver in the chest. As to Carver: "I never seen him again". He says he's dead and buried.

She said that soon afterward, Kohlhepp locked her in the container.

In another video, Kohlhepp admits to investigators in a calm and chilling demeanor that he killed four people at a store in 2003 and jokes about his hard-to-read handwriting. He was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences plus an additional 60 years in prison.

"We're getting bolt cutters, honey", an officer says at one point.

In the disturbing video included below, officers can be seen walking up to a metal storage container on Kohlhepp's Woodruff property. Officers walk past cases of bottled water and find Brown on makeshift bedding, dressed in a long-sleeved shirt, sweatpants and flip flops.

Prosecutors released several videos, dozens of pictures and hundreds of pages of documents submitted last month when serial killer Todd Kohlepp pleaded guilty to seven counts of murder to avoid the death penalty.

Brown was chained to make her movement limited and this included a chain attached to her neck. "I'll always miss Charlie", she said.

In the interrogation videos, Kohlhepp is disturbingly matter-of-fact about the killings, and expresses no remorse.

When asked about her boyfriend Charlie Karver who was also kidnapped by Kohlhepp, Brown said, "Charlie?"

Based on Brown's confession, police officers thoroughly searched the property and found three bodies on the rural Spartanburg County property.

"Charlie? He shot him", she said quietly.

The couple had gone missing two months previous and Kohlhepp later also pleaded guilty to defiling Brown. The Associated Press typically doesn't identify victims of sexual assault, but Brown has spoken publicly about her traumatic experience, appearing on Dr. Phil's television show in February.

Even though it had been 13 years, Kohlhepp detailed each shot he fired at the Superbike shop, including final shots to the forehead of 30-year-old Scott Ponder; 52-year-old Beverly Guy; 30-year-old Brian Lucas; and 26-year-old Chris Sherbert.

"I will tell you that once I engaged, I was engaged", Kohlhepp said.

Kohlhepp also killed 29-year-old Johnny Coxie and 26-year-old Leigh McCraw-Coxie in December 2015.

"She wanted Little Caesar's pizza".
