Breathtaking footage has been released showing a victim’s disturbing rescue from a shipping container. The victim, who was identified as Kala Brown, was found with her neck chained like a dog.
Kala Brown was kidnapped and held hostage in a shipping container in South Carolina, where she had to thrive in dire conditions for the two months before her rescue last November.
Brown was heard screaming from the large metal structure after which investigators were alerted in to the container was situated on the property of real estate agent Todd Kohlhepp. One video, released by prosecutors earlier this week, shows the exact moment when authorities sawed through the bin's locks and entered the container.
Several shelves are seen in the video alongside some labeled plastic bins. At the very end of the dark container, Brown is seen fully clothed and curled up on a mattress with her neck chained to the wall.
After being asked where he her buddy was, Brown said that Todd Kohlhepp shot Charlie Carver three times in the chest, wrapped him in a blue tarp, put him in the bucket of the tractor.
Brown was discovered in the shipping container on November 3rd, 2016. The body of her boyfriend, Charles Carver, was found buried in a shallow grave on Kohlhepp's property a short while later.
Kohlhepp was arrested and admitted to kidnapping Brown and shooting Carver, just as Brown had said.
Kohlhepp also confessed to shooting and killing a couple, Meagan Leigh McCraw Coxie and Johnny Joe Coxie, who had been missing for more than a year at that point. Their bodies were found buried on Kohlhepp's property.
Another video shows Kohlhepp confessing to investigators about the murders, and even bragging about how he wore gloves while loading his gun to make sure he didn't leave any fingerprints on the casings.
He told the detectives that he killed Coxie right away but kept McCraw Coxie alive for several more days, killing her later on after she tried to burn the container with cigarettes he gave her.
The ruthless murderer also confessed to a quadruple murder in 2003 that has come to be known as the Superbike murders, in which he shot and killed four bike-shop employees.
Kohlhepp pleaded guilty to seven counts of murder, two counts of kidnapping and one count of criminal sexual assault in May, after which he was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences parole.
