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. [2]


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​. [2]​ [3]

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. [2]​ [1]

Rowland had also turned on the child locks in the backseat so the doors could only be opened from the outside. [2]
