SE­RIAL KILLER LEFT CLUES IN AMA­ZON RE­VIEWS

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

SUS­PECTED se­rial killer Todd Kohlhepp left chill­ing clues to his crimes on AMA­ZON prod­uct re­views.

The 45-year-old has been charged with the kid­nap­ping of Kala Brown and is sus­pected of killing her boyfriend, Char­lie Carver, as well as six other peo­ple.

In a bizarre twist, the sicko left an un­usual trail of clues on Ama­zon prod­ucts which may have been used to abduct and kill his vic­tims.

Cops in Spar­tan­burg County, South Carolina, are ex­am­in­ing 140 prod­uct re­views that Kohlhepp left on the on­line shop­ping site.

One creepy re­view read: “solid locks. have 5 on a ship­ping con­tainer. won’t stop them but sure will slow them down til they are too old to care.”

Kala, 30, went miss­ing with her boyfriend in Au­gust. She was found chained by the neck and an­kles in a metal shed, with her boyfriend’s body buried on Kohlhepp’s prop­erty.

Po­lice are look­ing at the re­views, which were posted un­der the name ‘me’ but link back to a wishlist of items for Kohlhepp.

It seems the sus­pected mur­derer also has an ob­ses­sion with Amer­i­can band, the Ea­gles, as he of­ten quotes KNIFE POINTER: Kohlhepp dis­cussed us­ing tool their lyrics in his re­views. ‘Ho­tel Cal­i­for­nia’ was a hit song for the band in 1976 and lyrics in­clude: “You can check out any time you like but you can never leave.”

When re­view­ing an­other set of locks, Kohlhepp posted in Jan­uary 2015: “now my locks have locks place is ho­tel Cal­i­for­nia now.”

Kohlhepp also brazenly left a re­view of a knife. Prais­ing its qual­ity and dis­cussing stab­bing some­one, it read: “havnet (sic) stabbed any­one yet…… yet…. but I am keep­ing the dream alive and when I do, it will be with a qual­ity tool like this…”

He also urged on­line shop­pers to keep a shovel in the boot of their car for “when you have to hide the bod­ies”.

A month af­ter Kala and her boyfriend went miss­ing, a post ap­peared on Char­lie Carver’s Face­book page quot­ing lyrics from Ho­tel Cal­i­for­nia.

Lyrics on the Face­book post in­cluded: “Last thing I re­mem­ber, I was run­ning for the door.”
