Authorities have discovered a third body on the property of Todd Kohlhepp, a South Carolina man who was arrested last week after local law enforcement found a woman chained up inside a locked storage container on his land.
Kohlhepp, 45, faces charges of kidnapping and murder after allegedly confessing to killing four people in a cold case that stumped local police and the community for more than a decade.
The body, found Monday, was discovered close to a second body excavated on Sunday. The first body, found on Friday, was identified as Charles Carver, the 32-year-old boyfriend of the kidnapped woman, Kala Brown. Investigators said they believe they found all the bodies on Kohlhepp’s 95-acre property.
Authorities found the second and third bodies after Kohlhepp personally directed them to their graves. Spartanburg County coroner Rusty Clevenger said he could not say whether the bodies were male or female.
Kohlhepp faces murder charges after claiming responsibility for the quadruple homicide that became known as the Superbike murders after Brian Lucas, Scott Ponder, Beverly Guy and Chris Sherbert were murdered on Nov. 6, 2003, at Superbike Motorsports in South Carolina.
Kohlhepp has not yet been charged with Carver’s shooting death.
