Cries For Help
On Nov. 3, 2016, after about two months, pings from Kala Brown and Charlie Carver's cell phones, as well as Facebook messages mentioning local realtor Todd Kohlhepp, led investigators to Kohlhepp's rural, 99-acre property. They heard cries for help from inside a storage container located there.
Todd Kohlhepp admitted to Kala Brown that he disposed of Charlie Carver's car after murdering him and taking her captive. He spray-painted the white sedan brown and covered it with tree branches and other debris in an attempt to conceal it.
Todd Kohlhepp confessed to authorities that he murdered Charlie Carver, as well as six others over the years. The serial killer pleaded guilty to all seven murders, along with kidnapping and rape charges for Kala Brown on March 29, 2017.
