Man who chained up woman likely killed 7 more

A US sheriff says the man charged after a woman was found chained on his property in rural South Carolina has killed at least seven people.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright says Todd Kohlhepp confessed on Saturday that he was the shooter who killed four people at a motorcycle shop in 2003.

Wright says Kohlhepp also showed officers on Saturday the graves of two of his other victims buried on his 38 hectare property.

That's in addition to the body found on Friday at the site. Wright and Coroner Rusty Clevenger identified that victim as 32-year-old Charles Carver, the boyfriend of the woman found in a locked metal container Thursday.

Coroner Rusty Clevenger says Carver died of multiple gunshot wounds in the upper part of his body. He says he's working with an anthropologist to estimate how long he'd been buried.

Carver and his girlfriend went missing around August 31. Kohlhepp is charged with kidnapping her and keeping her chained in a locked storage container.

Prosecutor Barry Barnette said on Friday she told investigators she saw her captor shoot her boyfriend.

Kohlhepp is charged with kidnapping. The 45-year-old registered sex offender has a previous kidnapping conviction in Arizona.

Barnette said that in the Arizona case, Kohlhepp kidnapped a 14-year-old girl, bound her and raped her in 1986. Online prison records show he served about 14 years for the felony. He was released in 2001.

Well, the way they make shows is, they make one show. That show's called a pilot. Then they show that show to the people who make shows, and on the strength of that one show they decide if they're going to make more shows.

Like you, I used to think the world was this great place where everybody lived by the same standards I did, then some kid with a nail showed me I was living in his world, a world where chaos rules not order, a world where righteousness is not rewarded. That's Cesar's world, and if you're not willing to play by his rules, then you're gonna have to pay the price.

You think water moves fast? You should see ice. It moves like it has a mind. Like it knows it killed the world once and got a taste for murder. After the avalanche, it took us a week to climb out. Now, I don't know exactly when we turned on each other, but I know that seven of us survived the slide... and only five made it out. Now we took an oath, that I'm breaking now. We said we'd say it was the snow that killed the other two, but it wasn't. Nature is lethal but it doesn't hold a candle to man.

You see? It's curious. Ted did figure it out - time travel. And when we get back, we gonna tell everyone. How it's possible, how it's done, what the dangers are. But then why fifty years in the future when the spacecraft encounters a black hole does the computer call it an 'unknown entry event'? Why don't they know? If they don't know, that means we never told anyone. And if we never told anyone it means we never made it back. Hence we die down here. Just as a matter of deductive logic.
