Convicted serial killer Todd Kohlhepp reportedly claims more victims

Convicted serial killer Todd Kohlhepp claimed in a letter he wrote to a South Carolina newspaper that he killed more than the seven people he was convicted of murdering.

In a letter to the Herald-Journal in Spartanburg, South Carolina, Kohlhepp, 46, said he had tried to tell investigators about his other victims, “but it was blown off.”

“Yes there is more than seven,” Kohlhepp wrote in the eight-page letter. “I tried to tell investigators and I did tell FBI, but it was blown off. It’s not an addition problem, it’s an multiplication problem. Leaves the state and leaves the country. Thank you private pilot’s license.”

Don Wood, chief division counsel with the FBI’s Columbia office, told The Associated Press the agency has a pending investigation, but wouldn’t comment specifically on what the FBI is doing.

Police question if 5 missing women are victims of a serial killer

TACOMA (KCPQ)— The discovery of a partial human skull last month in a wooded area in East Pierce County has reignited interest in solving some long-term missing persons cases.

Investigators won’t know if the skull fragment is from a man or a woman until DNA test results are complete.

“Anytime there are human remains found in the state, loved ones of missing persons from around the state and sometimes bordering states will reach out and make sure that we are making that comparison and ruling out or checking on their loved ones,” said Carrie Gordon with the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit.

Serial killer says he hopes his ‘slow, painful death’ will comfort victims’ families

An East Coast drifter who killed seven people in Connecticut in 2003 and drove a van he called the “murder mobile” was sentenced Friday to life in prison.

A state judge handed down six consecutive life sentences to William Devin Howell during an emotional hearing where victims’ relatives spoke about how the killings devastated their lives. Howell pleaded guilty to murder charges in September.

“He stripped away the youth from us and made me and my brother orphans,” said Tiffany Menard, daughter of victim Mary Jane Menard.

She called Howell a “monster” and said she tried to kill herself two times after her mother disappeared.

Howell is believed to be the most prolific serial killer in Connecticut history — not counting mass shootings. The seven killings topped the Connecticut body count of serial killer Michael Ross, who killed six women in eastern Connecticut and two in New York, and
