Investigators in Spartanburg County, South Carolina, said they expect to find more bodies on the same property where they rescued a 30-year-old woman who was "chained up like a dog" in a shipping container.

We're not done here we're not gonna be done here until like I said earlier, we're 100 percent sure that we don't have any more evidence to go over.

Law enforcement officers are still searching Kohlhepp's property. Investigators told USA Today they fear they are dealing with the work of a serial killer. 

Friday, officers were seen collecting evidence from several shallow holes on the property.

The search for more evidence and possibly bodies continues

Wright told USA Today that investigators had searched about 30-40 percent of the property since Brown was rescued. 


So far, Kohlhepp has been arraigned on a charge of kidnapping Brown. He hasn't been charged with any deaths, but 7th Circuit Solicitor Barry Barnette said he will likely face at least one murder charge.

Brown told investigators that she saw him shoot her boyfriend, Charles David Carver. But at this time, it is still unclear if the body found on Kohlhepp's property is Carver's. 

Kohlhepp had previous convictions

Kohlhepp was charged with raping a 14-year-old girl when he was 15. He was sentenced to 15 years in prison and was required to register as a sex offender after he was released.
