WOODRUFF, S.C. — Hundreds of people have bought the belongings of a South Carolina serial killer.
Todd Kohlhepp's items went up for auction on Saturday and the proceeds will likely go to his surviving victim, Kala Brown.
Kohlhepp is serving seven consecutive life sentences after pleading guilty to several murders.
Brown was missing for two months before detectives found her chained inside a storage unit on Kohlhepp's property in Woodruff.
According to investigators, after officers found Brown, the body of her boyfriend and two others were discovered nearby.
Two days after his arrest, authorities said Kohlhepp confessed to the murder of four people at Superbike motorcycle shop 13 years before.
Last week, police were out searching again, this time because Kohlhepp told Discovery ID producers that there were more bodies hidden along Interstate 26.
Investigators didn't find evidence of other victims.
A gun safe, power tools, furniture and office supplies were among the auction inventory, which ran for several days and closed Wednesday evening.
A judge awarded Brown more than $6 million in damages.
