Investigators will continue Monday combing for human remains and other clues on the SC property of a man accused of a grisly crime spree stretching more than a decade.
Authorities have been scouring that property since Thursday when they discovered Kala Brown, 30, of Anderson, S.C., "chained like a dog" at the neck and ankles in a locked metal storage shed on the partially wooded site.
A SC man suspected of chaining a woman inside a storage shed on his rural property was charged with four murders and denied bail on Sunday based on his confession to a massacre at a motorcycle shop 13 years ago, SC media reported.
A SC man charged with kidnapping a woman and chaining her in a storage shed has been implicated in a 13-year-old quadruple murder, police said.
He also took them to a part of his 95-acre property where he says two more bodies are buried. The body of Charles Carver, Brown's boyfriend, was also found on Kohlhepp's property; the couple had been missing since late August. On Saturday, Kohlhepp showed officers where he says two more people are buried.
A customer found a bloodbath inside the Chesnee shop where owner Scott Ponder, his mother Beverly Guy and two employees, Brian Lucas and Chris Sherbert were "brutally murdered" on November 6, 2003, authorities said.
Guns and a large amount of ammunition were seized from Kohlhepp, the prosecutor said. Magistrate Judge Jimmy Henson said a circuit court could revisit the issue of bond later. He eventually became a resident in SC where his mother - identified in court documents as Regina Kohlhepp - lived. Officials said Brown and Kohlhepp knew each other and that her abduction was not a random act. Family and friends reported the pair missing in early September after Carver's mother, Joanne Shiflet of Starr, S.C., said they went to Woodruff to talk to Kohlhepp about clearing some of the property for him. She was chained inside a storage containerand had been there for two months.
South Carolina - Sex offender and kidnapping suspect Todd Kohlhepp shocked the Upstate over the weekend by confessing responsibility in a quadruple homicide cold case-but not before he reportedly made three requests. He recently told Owen, 76, that he'd paid $80,000 to put the chain-link fence around his property where the woman was found.

Moody said Florida's minimum wage is about to increase to $8.10 per hour on January 1 due to another cost of living adjustment. Personal injury attorney John Morgan announced this week that he is considering a run for Florida governor in 2018.
The wife of one of the 2003 victims said detectives told her Kohlhepp was an angry customer who had been in the shop several times.
Spartanburg County assessor's records show that Kohlhepp closed on the parcel on May 29, 2014.
Melissa Ponder told The Associated Press she was resigned that her husband Scott's death would never be solved before getting a phone call Saturday evening from one of the case's original detectives.
South Carolina's sex offender registry lists a 1986 kidnapping as the reason Kohlhepp is in the database of sex offenders.
He said, "I'm just so relieved".
"My emotions are running from joy to crying, even feeling sorry for the family [of killer] I feel for them", he said. Removing the remains to "preserve every bit of evidence" is a meticulous, time-consuming process, the coroner said.
Police vehicles could be seen going back and forth across the property. He has not yet been charged with Carver's murder.
