WOODRUFF, SC (WSPA) – Investigators says they have not found Charlie Carver.
He is the boyfriend of Kala Brown, who was found in a metal storage container with a chain around her neck at a property on Wofford Rd. in Woodruff.
The couple went missing on August 31.
Investigators say they have found Carver’s car on the property.
That car was towed away Thursday night.
Sheriff Wright says they may be dealing with a possible serial killer.
Brown told the sheriff there could be 4 bodies on the property. Sheriff Wright said Friday morning that cadaver dogs alerted to some places on the property, but it’s unclear what they may find until the excavation process begins.
Friends and family say Charlie’s Facebook had weird posts on it.
Before the page was deleted, cryptic messages were posted and sent from someone operating the site.
Their families believe it was hacked by another person.
“That’s not him saying something like that,” Bobbie Newsom, Kala’s mom said back when the posts began. She believed her daughter is in danger, but hoped for the best. “I love you baby girl. We are worried about you. this is unlike you. If you see this, just call somebody. anybody.”
Anderson Police say they watched the posts, but haven’t directly connected them to their disappearance.
HOW DID THEY FIND KALA BROWN?
Deputies heard her banging on the container as they were serving a search warrant.
Anderson Police Chief Jim Stewart said they were pinging Brown’s phone 2 days after she was reported missing.
He says it pinged on the property where Brown was found. The Phone went dead after two days.
Two weeks before they were able to get a search warrant for the property the sheriff’s office flew over the property and saw it was extensive and need to get on the ground.
Anderson Police say from early on they had no indication there was foul play, even with the cell phone pings.
Kala’s friends say she worked with her alleged kidnapper cleaning houses.
Her family has set up a GoFundMe account here.
