    A man linked to five killings in South Carolina, some as far back as 2003, appears to have left a series of alarming Amazon reviews for products including a shovel and a chainsaw.

    As NBC News reports, the 45-year-old murder suspect wrote a review for a folding shovel in 2014 that reads as follows: “keep in car for when you have to hide the bodies...” Another review, for a high security padlock, reads, “have 5 on a shipping container…wont stop them…but sure will slow them down tip they are too old to care.”

    The man, Todd Kohlhepp, was taken into custody Thursday after a missing woman was found chained up in a metal storage container on his property southeast of Greenville, S.C. On Sunday, human remains that have not yet been identified were found elsewhere on Kohlhepp’s property, according to authorities.

    Todd Kolhhepp is linked to reviews for dozens of Amazon products written between 2014 and 2016.
