WOODRUFF, S.C. (AP) – Authorities will identify two bodies excavated earlier this week from rural property in South Carolina where a woman was found alive and chained in a storage container.
Authorities say the property owner also has confessed to a quadruple killing at a motorcycle shop in 2003, which links him to seven deaths in all.
Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said he will identify the bodies Wednesday afternoon.
They were unearthed Sunday and Monday from a 95-acre site in rural Woodruff after the owner, Todd Kohlhepp, pointed authorities to the gravesites.
Kohlhepp’s arrest in the kidnapping of the woman led to his confessing Saturday to the killing at a Chesnee motorcycle shop.
A body found on the property a day earlier has been identified as the woman’s boyfriend, 32-year-old Charlie Carver.
