Sheriff: South Carolina man accused of keeping woman chained in container suspected in 7 deaths

WOODRUFF, S.C. The Latest on the investigation after a missing woman was found chained inside a storage container (all times local):

12:00 a.m.

The wife of one of the four people killed in a 2003 shooting at a South Carolina motorcycle shop says the man who authorities say confessed to the killing was a disgruntled customer.

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.

Ponder says the detectives told family members of all four victims the news at the same time — Todd Kohlhepp confessed to the killings.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright says along with the killings of the people found at the Superbike shop, authorities have found three bodies on Kohlhepp's property where they originally found a woman chained inside a container Thursday.
