- A University of SC senior was kidnapped and murdered after getting into a vehicle she thought was an Uber. The chief added that Rowland is being held in jail in Columbia.
"We believe that she mistakenly got into this particular car" instead of the Uber, Holbrook said.
"Our hearts are broken; they're broken", Columbia Police Chief W.H. Holbrook said at a press conference on the grim conclusion to the department's investigation.
Samantha Josephson, 21, was found dead along a rural road less than 24 hours after surveillance video captured her getting into the back seat of a black vehicle, apparently believing the auto was the Uber she had ordered to get her home from a bar early Friday morning. "Skip" Holbrook told the media: "What we know now is that she had, in fact, summoned an Uber ride and was waiting for that Uber ride to come".
Second: ask the driver "what's my name?" and if they get it wrong or don't know, do not get in the auto, Pastides said.
Her body was found the next day by turkey hunters in a wooded area more than 60 miles away. Investigators said the 21-year-old had ordered an Uber and they believe she thought Rowland's vehicle was her ride. Police found Josephson's blood in the car's passenger side and trunk, authorities said.
Samantha Josephson, 21, a student at the University of SC, called an Uber around 2 a.m. Friday in Columbia, and was last seen getting into a black Chevy Impala, said Columbia Police Chief W.H.

Both Lyft and Uber will tell you what kind of auto is picking you up, as well as the name of the driver and their license plates. It's never easy to stand before a family and explain how a loved one was murdered.
"It's pretty convenient because if I am at an event, I can park far and catch Uber to where I need to go", Paul Singh, who uses both Uber and Lyft, said.
"I just think it's pretty unfortunate people need to make sure they are going into the right vehicle", Rhodes said. Whether it means walking through a bloody police shooting to help a family find justice or showing the multifaceted talent of the Black Diaspora I write the news.
Samantha was majoring in political science, the USC College of Arts and Sciences said.
Pastides also advised students to "look out for one another, be active bystanders". "You guys have to travel together". That way, you can exit the auto at any time without trouble.
Funeral arrangements have already been scheduled for Josephson. Robbinsville Township also released a statement on Facebook about Josephson.
