Serial killer Todd Kohlhepp, who is serving seven consecutive life sentences in prison for murdering seven people, claims he has more victims — but is declining to give any specifics.
In an eight-page letter on Nov. 28 to the Herald-Journal, Kohlepp implied that he has killed many others and not just in South Carolina.
“Yes there is more than seven,” he wrote in the letter, claiming. “I tried to tell investigators and I did tell FBI, but it was blown off.”
“It’s not an addition problem, it’s an [sic] multiplication problem,” he continued. “Leaves the state and leaves the country. Thank you private pilot’s license.”
Kohlhepp, a former real estate agent, pleaded guilty earlier this year to seven murders committed over 13 years, from 2003 to 2016. The plea deal spared him the death penalty, but he is spending the rest of his life in prison without the
(SPARTANBURG, S.C.) — A South Carolina man convicted of killing seven people says he has more victims who have not been discovered.
The Herald-Journal of Spartanburg reports that, in an eight-page letter, Todd Kohlhepp wrote that he tried to tell investigators and informed the FBI, but he said “it was blown off.” He also wrote, “At this point, I really don’t see reason to give numbers or locations.”
Don Wood, chief division counsel with the FBI’s Columbia office, said the agency has a pending investigation, but wouldn’t comment specifically on what the FBI is doing.
The 46-year-old Kohlhepp pleaded guilty in May to seven counts of murder for killings that took place over more than a decade, all as he ran a real estate business. He was sentenced to life in prison.
His string of crimes was uncovered in 2016 after police rescued a woman chained at the neck in
TORONTO (NEWS 1130) – There’s no evidence that a serial killer was involved in the cases of recent missing and murdered people in the Church and Wellesley Streets area of Toronto, police said on Friday.
Investigators have addressed several concerns brought up by the community and posts on social media while giving an update on the investigations into the murder of Tess Richey, the death of Alloura Wells and missing people Andrew Kinsman and Selim Esen.
Speaking about Project Prism, the taskforce set up to investigate the disappearance of Kinsman and Esen, Detective Sergeant Michael Richmond said there was no evidence that dating apps were involved in these cases.

Richmond added that there has been no evidence that the two missing men are connected to each other or connected
The Seminole Heights neighborhood of Tampa has been on edge for nearly a month — and residents are trying to go about their daily lives with the fear that a serial killer may be in their midst.
The area has been terrorized by three killings of people who don’t seem to have an apparent link to each other. They were fatally shot within a half-mile of each other. Police believe the killings are related.
“I am scared every day,” resident Marisol Linares tells PEOPLE. “When I check my mail, I wonder if I can even get to the mailbox without being shot. I have children who can’t play outside because there may be someone who will shoot them. I want to move away, but I can’t right now.”
Police continue to investigate the killings, and a spokesperson tells PEOPLE that they are looking at
In June, one month after he was given a suspended prison term for being a scout for a prostitution ring, Takahiro Shiraishi told his father that he saw no meaning in life.
Jobless, the 27-year-old cocooned himself further in the dark recesses of social media. He used Twitter, a medium he once used to lure girls into the sex trade, to meet people with suicidal thoughts.
The gruesome Halloween find of nine human heads and 240 bones in his studio apartment in Zama city, an hour and a half from central Tokyo, has spooked Japan and again shone a light on suicide and mental health issues in a country that even has a “suicide forest”.
Japan has the sixth highest suicide rate in the world. Some 21,897 killed themselves last year – a 22-year low, while there were 257 reports filed with the Internet Hotline Centre about suicide attempts.
Television reporters spent a good part of Tuesday and Wednesday training their cameras on the building in the city of Zama where Mr. Shiraishi lived, or showing footage of the suspect covering his eyes with his hands as the police drove him to meet with prosecutors Wednesday morning.
With the police officially saying very little, it was left to the Japanese news media to report details leaked to members-only “press clubs” for crime reporters.
Police say that a possible serial killer is “terrorizing” a Tampa neighborhood after three people were shot and killed in 11 days.
The killings all occurred in The Seminole Heights section of Tampa. The three victims do not have an apparent link to each other, but they were fatally shot within a half mile of each other.
The first victim, 22-year-old Benjamin Mitchell, was shot and killed at approximately 9 p.m on October 9 while waiting at a bus stop near his home. He was alone at the time, He has no criminal background and a police spokesperson said in a press conference that he is “a good person from a good family.”
Two days later, Monica Caridad Hoffa, 32, was shot and killed ten blocks away. Her body was found in a grassy plot of land owned by the city of Tampa. “Her life was taken from her with no motive,” her
Police in Tampa, Florida have released a video of a hooded person of interest in the three murders that have terrorized a quiet neighborhood, in a desperate plea for information about the suspected serial murders.
A $25,000 reward is offered to the public for information about the three sidewalk shootings in Seminole Heights, after desperate investigators called in FBI profilers for assistance in the case.
Two men and one woman have been gunned down in the neighborhood in little more than a week, with police saying they have no personal connections and appear to be randomly targeted.
Cops conducting saturation patrols in the area even heard the gunshots that killed the latest victim, 20-year-old Anthony Naiboa, but the killer eluded them.
The eerie surveillance video from the first shooting shows a tall, thin person walking with a distinctive loping gait, but police have cautioned that they aren’t sure from
