(Newser) – Another body was found Sunday on the property of South Carolina kidnap and murder suspect Todd Kohlhepp—and investigators still have plenty of digging to do. The unidentified body was found in one of two locations on the 95-acre property that Kohlhepp, who bought the land two years ago, had identified as graves, ABC reports. The body of a man identified as Charlie Carver—whose girlfriend was found chained up in a storage container on the property—was earlier found in a shallow grave. Police say the 45-year-old Kohlhepp has confessed to killing at least seven people over the last 10 years, including four people who were massacred at a South Carolina motorcycle shop 13 years ago.

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright says the FBI and Homeland Security are now involved in the investigation, which will be looking at other sites Kohlhepp, a realtor, owns or used to own, the AP reports. Kohlhepp declined to make a statement at a brief court hearing on Sunday, where he was denied bond. The Greenville News reports that chilling Amazon.com product reviews from a user believed to be Kohlhepp have surfaced. He reviewed items like knives, padlocks and tactical gear. For a shovel with a folding handle, he wrote: "Keep in car for when you have to hide the bodies and you left the full size shovel at home." (Disturbing details have emerged about Kohlhepp's teenage years.)
