Suspect in student's death not at hearing

Her father, Seymour Josephson of Robbinsville, New Jersey, wrote a post on Facebook about his daughter's death.

The warrant also said Rowland had turned on the window and child locks in his vehicle, so the back doors could only be opened from the outside.

Fielding Pringle, the public defender for Rowland, said Sunday she has no statement on behalf of her client at this time.

Nathaniel David Rowland, 24, has been arrested on charges of murder and kidnapping in connection with Josephson's death, Columbia Police Chief W.H. Holbrook said. He is being held in jail in Columbia.

"She simply mistakenly got into the auto thinking it was her Uber", Holbrook told reporters at a Saturday evening press conference.

Hunters found Josephson's body Friday afternoon just hours after it was dumped, despite being left in an area that was "very hard to get to unless you knew how to get there", Holbrook said.

Police then saw blood in the auto and later discovered the victim's cellphone, bleach, wipes and window cleaner.


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

"Our hearts are broken", Holbrook said "They're broken". "There is nothing tougher than to stand before a family and explain how a loved one was murdered", Chief Holbrook said.

"There are no words to describe the vast pain, his actions have caused our family and friends".

According to police, K-9 officers pulled over the Chevy Impala with Rowland at the wheel around 3 a.m. Saturday. The university on Saturday confirmed the death of the student. "It stays with you.' That positive energy is going to help me go on living the rest of my life".

The State newspaper quotes Marci Josephson as saying Sunday that her daughter's killer has "taken away a piece of our heart, soul and life".

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

"It is with tremendous sadness and of a broken heart that I post this!"

Local news outlets reported that Josephson was set to graduate in May with a political science degree. They also saw what they believed to be blood throughout the auto, and in the boot of the vehicle.
