Mom of missing man not giving up hope after body found on property

WOODRUFF, S.C. (Independent-Mail/WSPA) – The mother of a missing man whose girlfriend was found chained inside a storage container told Independent-Mail that she refuses to give up hope until she sees her son again.

“Until I see a body, I can’t give up,” Charles David Carver’s mom, Joanne Shiflet, said. “For this to be over, I have to see him.”

32-year-old Charles David Carver went missing, along with his girlfriend, Kala Brown, back in August.

Brown was found on Thursday, on property owned by 45-year-old Todd Kohlhepp.

Carver’s car was found on the property, but he hasn’t yet been found.

Brown told investigators that she saw Kohlhepp shoot Carver.

In an interview with the Independent-Mail, Carver’s mom said she has felt a range of emotions after learning that Kohlhepp shot her son.

A body was found in a shallow grave on the property where Kala Brown was rescued, but the ID has not been released.

Sheriff Chuck Wright says they can’t tell if it’s a male or female.

Solicitor Barry Barnette said he is confident that there will be a murder warrant on Kohlhepp.

The sheriff’s office confirmed that Todd Kohlhepp was on his property today, and showed deputies where two more graves were located.
