Todd Kohlhepp, the South Carolina serial killer convicted of murdering seven people, admitted that he has more victims who have not been found.

According to the Herald-Journal of Spartanburg, Todd Kohlhepp wrote in an 8-page letter that he tried to tell authorities and the FBI about the additional victims, but said: “it was blown off.” He also added, “At this point, I don’t see a reason to give numbers or locations.”

In May, the 46-year-old pleaded guilty to seven counts of murder for slayings that occurred over the course of a decade, all as he operated a real estate business. He was sentenced to life behind bars.

The murders were uncovered in 2016 after authorities rescued a woman chained in a storage container and detectives discovered a body buried in a shallow grave.

The woman told police she saw Kohlhepp shoot and kill her boyfriend, who went with her for a cleaning job at the man’s property.
