SC serial killer Todd Kohlhepp claims the ‘FBI didn’t want to hear about his other supposed victims’, other than the seven he’s been convicted in their killings
A convicted serial killer claims there are more victims beyond the seven he was convicted of murdering. In a jailhouse letter, former South Carolina real estate broker, Todd Kohlhepp, said federal investigators either rebuffed or didn’t care.
“Yes there is more than seven,” the former real estate broker said in an eight-page letter to the Herald-Journal in Spartanburg, S.C.
“I tried to tell investigators and I did tell FBI, but it was blown off. It’s not an addition problem, it’s an multiplication problem.”
The expose dated Nov. 28, is one of the first statements Kohlhepp, 46, has made since pleading guilty in May to the slayings, which went as far back as 2003.
In May he received seven consecutive life sentences plus 60 years on murder, sexual assault and kidnapping charges.

Kohlhepp’s sequence of unsolved murders came to an end when Kala Brown, a woman he kept chained in a locked shipping container, was rescued by authorities in November 2016.
The body of her 32-year-old boyfriend, Charles David Carver, was one of three police discovered on Kohlhepp’s Spartanburg farm property, after rescuing Brown.

But Kohlhepp, 46, wrote he wasn’t giving up where his other victims were stashed because no one seemed to care.
“At this point, I really don’t see reason to give numbers or locations,” he said.
Kohlhepp would regularly brag to Brown that he’d killed nearly 100 people, she told “Dr. Phil” in February.
Kohlhepp confessed he was the shooter who killed four people at a motorcycle shop in Spartanburg County in 2003. He also admitted to killing a couple, Johnny and Meaghan Coxie in December 2015. Kohlhepp in his letter said he hadn’t “acted out” for three years before killing the married couple.

the contents of his letter is in contrast to a statement by his lawyer said in May that Kohlhepp “has come clean” to all his misdeeds, a confirmation that his client’s list of victims was limited to the seven listed t the trial.
The FBI’s local office in Columbia, S.C., is looking into the killer’s claim.
“We can’t comment specifically on what we’re doing, other than what I’ve said before – that we have a pending investigation,” said Don Wood, an official at the bureau’s Columbia office.
