'Serial Killer: Devil Unchained', a Discovery documentary will take a deeper look into the crimes of Todd Kohlhepp. The extent of the real estate broker's crimes came to light on November 3, 2016, when a young woman was found alive on his property after being held captive for two months in a shipping container.

Plot  

Kohlhepp had a troubled childhood as a teenager and was labeled "Devil on a chain" by the people who were familiar with his personality and who also described him as unpredictable. The former real estate broker finally pleaded guilty to seven murders and which led to the closing of one of South Carolina's most baffling cold cases - the murder of four people at a Superbike Motor Shop.

However, he is believed to have committed more murders, with further investigation and exclusive access to Kohlhepp in prison with filmmaker and journalist Maria Awes revealing the truth behind all his deceitful crimes -- the ones he has confessed to and the ones no one knows about.  

FBI profiler John Douglas and Kohlhepp's biographer, Gary Garrett, helped Awes get in-depth details of his twisted criminals life path along with information from Kohlhepp's family and victims who were rescued.
