He carried out a host of murders over the past decade, some stretching back to 13 years ago. I’m sorry, but you guys would have been proud."The investigators asked if anyone begged for their lives or said anything to him. I will tell you that once I engaged, I was engaged. It's not a game - you've been there, sir, you know what I am talking about.” Mr Kohlhepp added that he had killed Johnny Coxie, 29, and Leigh Mc Craw-Coxie, 26, in December 2015. However, he did say he shot a man in Arizona when he was 14, but could not give many details.He recalled each shot he fired at the Superbike shop, including final shots to the forehead of Scott Ponder, 30, Beverly Guy, 52, Brian Lucas, 30 and 26-year-old Chris Sherbert. They, like Mr Carver and Ms Brown, were lured to his sprawling land after he promised them work. Authorities have not charged him with any additional crimes in other states.'On November 3, investigators went on Kohlepp's property to look for Brown and her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charles David Carter.
That's up from 38 percent support for legalization in 2012.
Amnesty International is among the organizations seeking to recognize people's right to, in the organization's words, "the full decriminalization of all aspects of consensual sex work." Opponents of commercial sex find themselves on the wrong side of shifting public opinion, so they pull a little rhetorical sleight of hand to get around that inconvenient word "consensual." The implication of the "trafficking" terminology is that prostitutes are slaves—and they're being hustled off to a major sporting event near you.
"The good news is that we are continuing our efforts to fight human trafficking," San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón said the same day.
"The bad news is that the problem continues to increase." Gascón made his comments at a press conference deliberately tied to the big game, in anticipation of a wave of "trafficked" sex workers descending on the area.

Police found three bodies on Kohlhepp's 95-acre property before they heard Brown's cries and rescued her.
Authorities say on the way to the hospital, Brown told them about how Kohlhepp confessed to killing a married couple before she was captured, and about killing four people at a Spartanburg County motorcycle shop - murders that were unsolved for 13 years.
"Coercion is much rarer than 'trafficking' fetishists pretend it is," insists contributor and former call girl Maggie Mc Neill.
"The term 'trafficking' is used to describe many different things along a broad spectrum running from absolutely coercive to absolutely not coercive, yet all of them are shoehorned into a lurid, melodramatic and highly-stereotyped narrative." Evidence for Mc Neill's take is apparent in the difficulty authorities often have in convincing the trafficking "victims" they rescue that they're in need of heroic intervention into their lives.
That term–not "prostitution," but "trafficking"—is a deliberate choice, selected to confuse people accustomed to the plain language established over the long history of the buying and selling of sexual services. While the trade in sex was once frowned upon in itself, that's no longer necessarily the case.
