It was past two and a half afternoon when Samantha Josephus decided to part with his friends and leave the dog dog bar himself. Then, according to the police, the 21-year senior college called Uber.
Josephine was on Thursday night in the Five Points neighborhood in downtown Columbia, a popular nightlife hub right across the street from University of South Carolina. Observation shows she is going out, waiting on the sidewalk and holding her phone.
At 2:09 am, the black Chevrolet Impala slipped into the parking lot next to it. As pedestrians walked, Josephus got inside.
But Impala was not her Uber, the police would decide later, and the man who ruled it had never taken her home. Twelve hours later, Josephine's friends said she was missing.
Hours later the authorities found her dead. "" Our hearts are broken, "Colombian police chief Skop Holbrooke said at a weekend conference just after meeting Josephine's family, who traveled to New Jersey. – They're broken.
Police arrested 24-year-old Nathaniel D. Rowland on charges of murder and kidnapping, Holbrooke said.
