Kala Brown, the Anderson woman whom serial killer Todd Kohlhepp kept prisoner in Woodruff for two months, has filed a lawsuit against Kohlhepp’s real estate company.
Brown is suing Todd Kohlhepp & Associates LLC, also known as TKA Real Estate, for compensation for serious personal, physical and emotional injuries as a result of being held captive.
According to the lawsuit filed in late March, Brown has and will continue to suffer “great pain and mental anguish” from Kohlhepp’s disregard for her physical and emotional well-being.
Brown’s lawsuit says the company presented Kohlhepp – a registered sex offender with a past kidnapping conviction – as a trustworthy and reliable real estate professional.
The suit further states Kohlhepp’s position posed a risk to the safety of others.
Kohlhepp was sentenced to seven consecutive life sentences without eligibility for parole after pleading guilty last week to murdering seven people. He also was sentenced to 30 years for kidnapping and 30 years for criminal sexual assault.
