At this stage in the investigation, the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office said it appears that Carver and Johnny Coxie went to Kohlhepp’s property voluntarily, which explains the absence of kidnapping charges involving the two men.
Carver and his girlfriend had disappeared two months before they were found by investigators. The Coxies were reported missing last December.
Deputies said Kohlhepp confessed to killing four other people in Spartanburg County at a motorcycle shop in 2003, leaving behind their bodies. He has been charged with murder in those deaths.
