Video has recorded the rescue of a kidnapped woman, Kala Brown. Police report says she was kept chained "like a dog" in a shipping container by a suspected serial criminal. He kept her there for 2 months after ending her boyfriend.
The victim- Kala Brown
Prosecutors released the video, as well as another tape of the crimal - Todd Kohlhepp's confession to local media, just two weeks after the once-successful real estate broker pleaded guilty to the missing of seven more people.
It is reported that Kala Brown spent two months on property owned by Todd Kohlhepp in late 2016 after he allegedly lured her and her boyfriend there with the offer of a job. Instead, he shot her boyfriend and kept her like some slave to satisfy his need for two months.
She was kept chained "like a dog" in a shipping container
When they first find Brown, the poor woman was sitting on a makeshift bed against the back wall, wearing a long-sleeved shirt, pants and a chain around her throat.
"My neck's attached to the wall," Brown tells police. “He didn’t want to kill me, he wanted to keep me. That’s why I did what I had to do to survive.”
Brown says she spent her days on a dog bed and using a 5-gallon bucket as a bathroom. For food, she says Kohlhepp gave her just crackers and moldy cheese.
Brown said that Kohlhepp hoped she would one day fall in love with him.
He was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences, plus another 60 years for other crime.
Brown told Dr. Phil that the criminal bragged that he'd murdered almost 100 people, but it's unclear if he was telling the truth or be charged.
