todd-kohlheppANDERSON COUNTY, SC – A woman missing since August has been found chained like a dog inside a metal storage container, and a registered sex offender has been arrested.

Back in August, 30-year-old Kala Brown and her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charlie Carver, disappeared from their apartment leaving cell phones, a car, and their dog behind.

The faded from the news a bit until recently, when someone started posting on Carver’s Facebook page.

The person making the posts claimed the couple were fine and just decided to leave.

Their family members did not believe the posts were coming from the couple, thinking the page had either been hacked, or the handiwork of the person(s) responsible for their disappearance.

We now know the fate of Brown, who was found alive inside a storage shed on property belonging to 45-year-old Todd Kohlhepp, a registered sex offender.

Acting on a tip provided by a sex crime investigator, deputies were on the property when they heard banging coming from the storage container

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said Brown was “chained inside the container like a dog.” He said Brown told them she’d been in the container for two months with a chain around her neck.

“It was pretty emotional, to say the least, when she was found especially when she was chained like a dog,” said Wright. “She had a chain around her neck! Its only by God’s grace we found that little girl alive.”

Brown also told investigators that there may be four more bodies on the property, but that claim has not been verified.

“We’re trying to make sure we don’t have a serial killer on our hands,” Wright said.

At this point the only thing investigators have found on the 100 acre property, aside from Brown, is ammunition, weapons and bear traps. The location of Carver is still unknown at this point.

Police arrested Kohlhepp in connection with the investigation and say he is a convicted sex offender convicted of kidnapping in Arizona in 1987, when he was only 16.

Kohlepp will be charged with kidnapping, for now.

“He’s currently incarcerated,” Wright said. “We’re trying to get all this sorted out and figure out what were going to charge him with. One of the charges will be kidnapping, it could be murder. It could be a number of things.”

No doubt a lot more details will be coming, so feel free to provide any updates in the comments below.

  • Skip the trial. Give him a chance to say prayer. He’s hears the click of the hammer.

  • Never thought in a million years this story would end with either alive. But I guess after 2 months chained in a container it’s not exactly a happy ending…

  • That poor woman, maybe she’d be better dead. She’s gonna relive this nightmare for the rest of her life! Bastard

  • Xenu Ate My Baby!

    Doesnt sound good for the boyfriend, I mean finding him alive… thanks for this update, I have had a difficult time finding much information about this story since I became aware of it a few wks ago… Kohlhepp is going end up being exposed as a sick, sick puppy responsible for a fuckton of crime, I bet.

  • My biological mother lives in this town. Small rural in the middle of no where. Freaking crazy.

  • dammitall23

  • When will we learn? Sex offenders cannot be rehabilitated!

  • This is crazy!

  • itsknotme

    I have trouble feeding goldfish much less a cat or a dog. But, keeping a woman, he’s nuts. And, speaking of nuts, …, if we want to keep him chained up, well …

  • GGMon

    JESUS FUCKING CHRIST. That poor lady is going to need a lot of counseling for all that trauma. I hope someone tortures him before he dies

  • They can, but only with lifelong therapy. Unfortunately the conditions of the sex offender registry only require a certain amount of time in therapy. It really needs reform.

  • velvetjoneslives

    This goes way beyond being a sex offender. Read this guys history. He was a walking time bomb.

  • velvetjoneslives

    This guy was working as a real estate agent. What the hell kind of laws do they have in South Carolina? How do you get real estate license when you are a convicted sex offender?

  • Robyn Singleton

    Who is the little girl he is referring to? Is there someone else? Because I swear it says she is 30 in this and other articles

  • I work in psych, with the most severe patients, and some are sex offenders. Never seen one be rehabilitated to the point that they could be trusted among the public without heavy supervision.

  • Why isn’t this guy running for public office?

  • privateeyes

    She looks short in stature and I bet, that even with regular feedings, being chained up in side a cage for 2 months would make her lose weight and cower.

  • holy moly

  • taffy550

    I just sent the article link to my real estate broker. I asked him if he had any hobbies I should be concerned about. 😛

  • MissBrazilian ????

    There is no rehabilitation
    Best thing to do is it it off

  • captaingrumpy

    Where do we get his History from ???

  • captaingrumpy

    You know how it goes. They send kids that have been convicted of crimes on holidays at Ranches with full board for a month whilst the good kids get No rewards. They would have given him a licence saying it might turn him around , we must help him.

  • captaingrumpy

    places are all filled up with Kennedys , Bush’s and Clintons.

  • velvetjoneslives

    It was detailed in one of the other articles regarding the case. This guy had been in and out of jail since he was nine years old.

  • velvetjoneslives

    I don’t know. In my state a felony automatically disqualifies you from having a real estate license. Realtors have access to peoples homes via lock boxes. That is like license to rape for a sex offender. I’d be curious how he found this couple. I wouldn’t be surprised if he showed them a listing.

    Thanks

    Reason #1 why I hate the soft headed wankers who bitch & cry & use words like “mistake” when referencing (monster) minors who are given long prison sentences.
