PIEDMONT, SC (FOX Carolina) – The coroner said Monday an autopsy revealed that a Piedmont man died at the hospital after going into cardiac arrest while receiving treatment for a stab wound.

The coroner’s office said Adam Mayson, 34, stabbed himself at his home on Piedmont Golf Course Road on Saturday and was transported to the hospital, where he died during treatment.

Mayson was engaged to Kala Brown, the woman who was held captive by serial killer Todd Kohlhepp and found chained inside a shipping container on Kohlhepp’s former property in Woodruff.

Kohlhepp pleaded guilty to seven murders, including the death of Brown’s former boyfriend, Charlie Carver.

According to Mayson’s Facebook page, he and Brown announced their engagement on Sept. 11, 2018.

Kala Brown released this statement on her heartbreaking loss Tuesday through a spokesperson:

I am heartbroken today over the loss of my fiance, Adam Mayson.

Adam was a true gift from God.

He brought me great happiness and comfort during a very dark and difficult time. Building a life together restored my joy and gave me hope for the future.

I do not know what tomorrow will bring, but I trust Jesus is with me even in the midst of this pain.

Please join me in praying for God's peace to be upon Adam's family as they, too, are grieving this tragic loss.


Kala Brown.
