When detectives found 30-year-old Kala Brown, she was ‘chained like a dog’ inside a storage container on a property in North Carolina.
She had been missing for two months, and had survived on one meal a day. She was bound by her neck and feet inside a box that detectives described as “a shark cage that you would put underwater”.
Kala Brown said she watched as her captor, suspected serial killer Todd Kohlhepp, shot and killed her boyfriend, 32-year-old Charlie Carver, in front of her.
Now, for the first time since she was rescued last November, Kala Brown is speaking about her terrifying ordeal.
Kala will appear on a two-part interview special on Dr. Phil, due to air on February 13 and 14.
It's the first interview Kara has given since she was discovered.
"Todd put me on the ground and handcuffed me and cuffed my ankles, and put a ball gag in my mouth," Kala tells Dr Phil McGraw in a preview clip from the show.
