The family members of the four victims in the 2003 Superbike murders were part of a club no one wants to be a part of, unsolved homicides.

Just hours before the 13th anniversary, Sheriff Chuck Wright delivered news in a press conference that they had made an arrest.

Todd Kohlhepp who has been arrested after a woman was found chained in a storage container on his property, along with a man’s body in a shallow grave, is now also being charged with the 4 Superbike murders.

November 6, 2003 Scott Ponder, Beverly Guy, Brian Lucas, and Chris Sherbert were shot and killed inside the Superbike Motorsports shop in Chesnee on Parris Bridge Road.

Years went by and sketches were released, leads were followed, but the case remained cold.

On Saturday, Sheriff Wright says that Kohlhepp confessed to the killings and gave details that no one else would know.

Scott Ponder’s widow, Melissa, says deputies told her that Kohlhepp was a customer of the shop.

Chris Sherbert’s brother remains in disbelief, telling 7 News that he stopped by his brother’s grave Saturday night, to tell him there was closure.

Tom Lucas, the father of Brian Lucas, says that it’s unreal still.

Sheriff Wright has told family members that he plans to release more information that will further prove that Kohlhepp committed the murders.

Kohlhepp’s bond hearing for those 4 murder charges, is expected to be held at 8 a.m. at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
