SPARTANBURG CO., S.C. (WSPA) – The mother of accused serial killer Todd Kohlhepp was found dead Sunday morning, according to the Spartanburg County Coroner’s Office.
Coroner Rusty Clevenger says the body of 70-year-old Regina Ann Tague was found by her husband in her home.
No foul play is expected at this time, the coroner says.
The cause of death has not yet been determined.
Coroner Clevenger says a toxicology report is needed before determining a cause of death but does say that Tague was under a doctor’s care at the time of her death.
Todd Kohlhepp is accused of murdering seven people.
The Spartanburg Co. Sheriff’s Office says Todd Kohlhepp will not be allowed to attend the funeral.
Authorities say the remains of 25-year-old Meagan Coxie, her 29-year-old husband Johnny Coxie, and Charlie Carver were found buried on the Woodruff property where Carver’s girlfriend, Kala Brown, was held captive by Kohlhepp.
The sheriff said Kala was kept chained in a storage container until deputies found her on the property.
After his arrest, authorities said Kohlhepp confessed to killing four people at a motorcycle shop in Spartanburg County in November of 2003.
