Murdered South Carolina student may have thought auto was her Uber ride

Suspect Arrested In Five Points Slaying

Police have apprehended a man suspected of murdering 21-year-old SC college student Samantha Josephson who was found dead on the side of a road March 29.

"He should never be given the right to walk free again for what he did to my daughter, or given the opportunity to hurt anyone else", she said.

They returned to the vehicle where officers allegedly found damming evidence.

USC President Harris Pastides released a statement saying "our prayers are with the family and friends of Samantha Josephson following the devastating news of her death".

Rowland was arrested early Saturday, after a Columbia police officer observed his auto just blocks from Five Points, Holbrook said.

Nathaniel David Rowland is set to appear in front of a judge at Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center at 2 p.m. after being charged with kidnapping and murdering Samantha Josephson, 21.

The death of Samantha Josephson rattled Columbia.

"Peggy and I are devastated and crushed over the Josephson family losing their handsome daughter Samantha", Mr McMaster said.

The Columbia police chief said the USC student had called and was waiting for an Uber ride and likely mistakenly got into Rowland's vehicle, assuming it was that ride.

Upon examining the Impala owned by Rowland (above), police observed a "large amount of liquid that we believed to be blood", according to Holbrook. "Samantha was by herself, she had absolutely no chance".

Marci Josephson said her daughter was bubbly, loving and full of life and planned to go to law school after graduating in May. "Travel in groups and stay together". "Skip" Holbrook during a news conference Saturday.

Josephson's body was found with numerous wounds including on her head, neck, face, upper body, leg and foot, according to arrest warrants for Nathaniel Rowland released by the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division (SLED).

Police said turkey hunters found Josephson's body in a rural area near where the suspect once lived. He was being held in the Richland County jail.

Police searched for the auto Josephson had gotten into and around 3 a.m. Saturday a Columbia officer saw the Impala and stopped the vehicle, Holbrook said.

As police approached the auto, its driver Nathaniel David Rowland started running but he was apprehended after a short chase. Rowland then got out of the vehicle and ran but was soon caught. The university on Saturday confirmed the death of the student. "I ask every South Carolinian to join us in praying for the Josephson family".
