The Chilling Amazon Reviews Left By An Alleged Serial Killer

Serial killers achieve a sort of inhuman status once they're caught and their crimes brought to light, but despite their heinous crimes they're still normal people after all.

And normal people do normal stuff, like leave reviews on Amazon for items like knives, padlocks, shovels and gun accessories, items that only seem sinister when they're associated with a killer.

"havnet [sic] stabbed anyone yet...... yet.... but I am keeping the dream alive and when I do, it will be with a quality tool like this..."

But in retrospect the Amazon reviews left by alleged serial killer Todd Kohlhepp should have read as sinister well before he was arrested, because who in their right mind leaves a review like this for a shovel with a folding handle:

"keep in car for when you have to hide the bodies and you left the full size shovel at home.... does not come with a midget, which would have been nice."

Greenville Online says these disturbing Amazon reviews are now being used as evidence against Kohlhepp, but the fact that he had been posting them since 2014 should have raised some red flags. Maybe people thought he was trolling?

When I was in high school, a former student posted a threat on an anonymous online message board that he was going to bring a gun and shoot everyone as we waited for classes to start. Some people thought it was preposterous that such a threat would be taken seriously, and in reality it turned out to be empty, but things like this make me wonder. As much as people say they're just trolls, at least some of the people who say these things really mean them.
