The estranged wife of the missing South Carolina man whose body was located on a property during a state-wide search was arrested Tuesday for allegedly impersonating a police officer, FoxCarolina.com reported.
Nicole Carver, who was married to Charlie Carver, called AT&T and identified herself as a police detective, the report said, citing warrants. She reportedly was attempting to “geo-locate” her husband’s cell phone.
Carver was reported missing in August with his girlfriend, Kala Brown. Brown was rescued from a storage container on the Spartanburg County property last week and told sheriff's deputies her boyfriend had been shot and killed. Carver's body was found Friday.
The property owner, Todd Kohlhepp, has been arrested and deputies say he confessed to killing four other people in the county in 2003. He has not been charged in Carver's death. Two other bodies were located on the property. Coroner Rusty Clevenger said Wednesday that one of the victims was a 25-year-old woman who appears to have died from a gunshot wound to the head and the other was her husband, a 29-year-old man who had a gunshot wound to his torso.
The report said it is unclear if there is any relationship between Nicole Carver and Kohlhepp.
A judge set a $2,500 bond for Nicole Carver. She is due in court on Dec. 16.
