 More than 500 items belonging to a convicted serial killer Todd Kohlhepp, 47, are currently being auctioned off

More than 500 items belonging to a convicted serial killer who murdered seven people in South Carolina are currently being auctioned off.

A badly damaged gun safe, power tools, furniture and office supplies belonging to Todd Kohlhepp are among the inventory in an online auction being handled by Mears Land and Auction Company. 

Proceeds from the sale will go toward paying judgments against Kohlhepp, 47, who is serving seven consecutive life sentences.

The items are at Kohlhepp’s Woodruff property, where authorities discovered three bodies in 2016, along with a missing woman locked in a storage container. 

Last week, a judge awarded $6.3million in damages to Kala Brown, who had been missing for two months before cellphone data led authorities to Kohlhepp’s property.

Brown, 31, said she was raped each day of her captivity. Her dramatic rescue from a storage container in November 2016 helped authorities solve seven killings in the area, including that of her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles Carter. 

Bidding opened over the weekend and closes late Wednesday afternoon.

According to the auction’s description, the long list of items up for sale includes a Yamaha Grizzly ATV; single-axle trailer; solar panels and solar battery collection system; large chain link dog run; real estate items; hand and power tools; survival items; shelving and other household goods.

Kohlhepp also had in his possession some wall art, including framed paintings, posters depicting scantily clad ‘beer girls’ and an eerie motorcycle flag emblazoned with a trio of skulls and the phrase, ‘Hell of a Ride.’

Kohlhepp’s 96-acre property on Wofford Road in Woodruff will soon be sold at foreclosure, and all items sold at auction must be carted away by their new owners by Friday afternoon.   

The court-appointed receiver of Kohlhepp’s assets is still determining their value. It’s unclear how much money Brown and plaintiffs in five other civil lawsuits against Kohlhepp would actually receive.

He also admitted to Brown during her captivity that he had killed Scott Ponder, 30; Beverly Guy, 52; Brian Lucas, 30; and Chris Sherbert, 26, at the Superbike motorcycle shop in November 2003. 

Kohlhepp has told a television documentary crew that he has two additional victims buried near an interstate, sparking a large-scale search on August 22, which failed to turn up any bodies.
