Before she began to keep a low profile, Kala Brown went through the hell of sexual abuse. Kala was kidnapped and tortured both sexually and physically for two months by Todd Kohlhepp. Todd is now a convicted murderer who was her then real estate broker who offered her jobs from time to time. However, things took a different turn in late August when Kala and her then-boyfriend Charles met fatal fates in the hands of Todd.
On that unfortunate day, Kala and Charles visited Todd at his rural property in South Carolina to do some work as usual. But within a split second of their arrival, Todd killed Charles and made Kala his sex slave in captivity for two months. In a bid to cover his tracks, Todd updated Charles’s Facebook feed with posts claiming that Charles and Kala had gotten married, bought a house, and expecting a child. But fortunately, this further raised the suspicion of the authorities, who stormed his apartment for a thorough search. Thanks to Kala Brown’s bravery, that prompted her rescue. During the search, she alerted the cops by consistently banging the steel shipping container where Todd kept her hostage in chains.
Since she was rescued and justice was served, Kala Brown has managed to stay away from the news. Notwithstanding, questions about her whereabouts and what she currently does pop up now and then.
