South Carolina sheriff’s deputies on Friday released dramatic body cam footage of the moment they arrested a serial killer after they found a woman he had kidnapped and repeatedly raped locked inside a container on his property.
Last month, Todd Kohlhepp of Spartanburg County pleaded guilty to killing seven people over nearly 13 years while running a successful real estate business.
‘While we were here, my sergeant served a search warrant on your property,’ a deputy is seen in the video dated November 3, 2016, telling Kohlhepp.
Authorities also released video of deputies executing a search warrant on Kohlhepp’s home.
‘We have Kala. We have Kala in your property,’ the deputy says.
Kala Brown had been raped and locked inside a shipping container for more than two months after Kohlhepp shot and killed her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles David Carter.
The recorded confessions of South Carolina serial killer Todd Kohlhepp and the rescue of one of his victims, Anderson resident Kala Brown, were among the hundreds of records made public late Friday by the 7th Circuit Solicitor’s Office.
Disturbing video footage shows officers’ discovery of Brown inside a dark metal storage container on Kohlhepp’s property near Woodruff. Officers walk past cases of bottled water and find Brown on makeshift bedding, dressed in a long-sleeved shirt, sweatpants and flip flops. She has a large chain around her neck. Her movement is limited.
“My neck’s attached to the wall,” Brown tell officers.
One officer tells her: “We’re getting bolt cutters, honey.”
A serial killer who was found guilty of abducting, raping and murdering four women revealed the very moment he felt remorse for his horrific crimes.
Steven Dean Gordon — also known as “Jaws” for his predatory ways — “begged” for the death penalty after committing several murders throughout 2013 and 2014.
Gordon, 47, terrorized his victims with the help of registered sex offender, 30-year-old Frank Cano, while he wore a GPS tracking device for prior offenses, DailyMail.com reports.
The men allegedly brought the women to their camp in Anaheim, California, before raping and murdering them.
Gordon spoke publicly about the crimes he committed for the first time in an eerie interview with Keith Morrison of NBC’s “Dateline,” and revealed the moment he finally felt heavy regret for the crimes he committed.
