SPARTANBURG, S. C. – A South Carolina man convicted of killing seven people says he has more victims who have not been discovered.
The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that in an eight-page letter, Todd Kohlhepp wrote that he tried to tell investigators and the height of the FBI, but he said: “it was blown.” He also wrote, “At this moment I don’t really see the reason to give numbers or locations.”
Don Wood, chief division counsel with the FBI’s Columbia office, said the agency pending an investigation, but would not specifically comment on what the FBI is doing.
The 46-year-old Kohlhepp pleaded guilty in May to seven murders for murders that took place in the course of more than a decade, as he ran a real estate company. He was sentenced to life in prison.
His series of crimes discovered, in 2016, after the police rescued a woman chained to the neck in a container, and the researchers found a body buried in a shallow grave. The woman told investigators that she saw Kohlhepp shoot and kill her friend, who went with her for a cleaning job at the defendant’s house.
