It sickens us to think that his face was the last thing my baby girl saw’: Mother of a student killed by fake Uber driver tells judge her ‘vile’ killer should never walk free as it’s revealed he put on child locks in car to trap her
The mother of a South Carolina student who was found dead after getting into a stranger’s car thinking it was her Uber has slammed the driver as being ‘vile’ and ‘evil’ after it emerged he had activated the child locks in his backseat.
Nathaniel David Rowland, 24, was arrested for allegedly killing 21-year-old Samantha Josephson after she got into his car in Columbia at about 1.30am on Friday thinking it was her Uber ride.
Her body was found hours later dumped in woods off a dirt road in Clarendon County about 65 miles away from where she was last seen on surveillance video getting into Rowland’s car.
Josephson’s mother Marci read a statement on Sunday to the judge at Rowland’s jail hearing, which he was not present for.
