Todd Kohlhepp Posted Amazon Reviews About Killing Tools
A man suspected of killing at least seven people may have left sadistic reviews of his killing tools on Amazon.
Todd Kohlhepp, 45, of Woodruff near Spartanburg in South Carolina, allegedly confessed to numerous murders after the police found Kala Brown, 30, on his 100-acre property last week.
Now, as part of the investigation, authorities are reviewing the chilling words suspected to have been left on Amazon by Kohlhepp.
The account dates back to May 2014 under the username "me," which is linked to a "Wish List" in Kohlhepp's name.
According to Greenville Online, part of a review left under a knife on September 13, 2014, read,
Havnet (sic) stabbed anyone yet... yet... but I am keeping the dream alive and when I do, it will be with a quality tool like this...
Another review, this time about a padlock, read,
Solid locks... have 5 on a shipping container... wont stop them... but sure will slow them down til they are too old to care.
Last week, police found Kala Brown chained up by her neck in a storage container. They were searching the property when they heard a bang.
It is believed she was kept in those conditions for the entire two months she was missing.
Brown and her boyfriend, Charlie Carver, were reported missing on August 31 this year.
His body was found close to where Brown was being kept. Authorities say he had multiple gunshot wounds.
Throughout the search for the missing couple, eerie Facebook updates were posted on Carver's page.
Some posts were random updates. But at one point, his relationship status was changed to "married to Kala Brown."
On October 2, a photo was uploaded with the words,
Admit it... Life would be boring without me.
Carver's Facebook page has since been deactivated.
Kohlhepp was arrested last week, and has admitted to the killings of the owner, service manager, mechanic and bookkeeper of Superbike Motorsports (a store in Spartanburg County) back in 2003, reports ABC News.
Sheriff Chuck Wright said,
God answered our prayers. If it wasn't for Him answering our prayers and Todd talking to us, I don't know that we'd ever solve that case.
Over the weekend, Kohlhepp joined officers in prison garb as they scoured the land for potential burial sites of more victims.
