Efforts to find more human remains on property in Spartanburg County where three bodies have been found were scaled back Tuesday, according to the Spartanburg Herald Journal.
Spartanburg County deputies indicated they believe at this time they have found all of the bodies buried on land in Woodruff owned by Todd Kohlhepp. The findings of human remains last weekend came days after deputies rescued Kala Brown of Anderson from a container on the site Thursday. The 45-year-old Kohlhepp was arrested.
Deputies said they found the 30 year-old Brown chained up inside a locked storage container on the property. On Friday, they revealed a body had been discovered on the property. Over the weekend, the county coroner’s office confirmed the body was her boyfriend, Charlie Carver, who had also been reported missing with Brown two months ago. Seventh Circuit Solicitor Barry Barnette said Brown told investigators Kohlhepp shot Carver.
On Saturday, authorities said he confessed to the 2003 Superbike Motorsports homicides in Chesnee that left Scott Ponder, Brian Lucas, Beverly Guy and Chris Sherbert dead. That cold case had been considered unsolved for years. Spartanburg County investigators said Kohlhepp had been a customer in the motorcycle store earlier that day.
After his arrest, Kohlhepp told authorities that there were two more graves on the property. Human remains were discovered in each and are in the process of being identified.
Kohlhepp is facing kidnapping charges in the Brown case and four counts of murder in connection to Superbike. As of Tuesday he had not been charged for any other homicides.
