Murder of Samantha Josephson
On Friday March 29, 2019, at around 2:00 a.m. Josephson was waiting for an Uber ride in the 5 points section of Columbia, South Carolina. She mistakenly got into a black Chevy Impala, driven by Nathaniel David Rowland, thinking of it was her Uber. 
By 1:30 p.m. Friday, police received a missing person's report from a roommate who had been with Josephson the night before but got separated. A few hours later, Josephson's body was discovered by hunters in a wooded area of nearby Clarendon County.  
At around 3 a.m. Saturday March 30, 2019, a K-9 officer on patrol stopped Rowland's Impala. Rowland jumped out and ran but was soon caught. Investigators found Josephson's blood in the vehicle.  
Rowland had also turned on the child locks in the backseat so the doors could only be opened from the outside.
