The Buffalo News - - NATIONAL NEWS -

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Po­lice ar­rested a man on Satur­day in con­nec­tion with the killing of a 21-year-old col­lege stu­dent who was last seen early Fri­day be­fore she ap­par­ently got into a car she mis­took for an Uber she had called, the author­i­ties said.

Po­lice said Satur­day night that the body of the woman, Samantha Joseph­son, was found Fri­day in a wooded area in Claren­don County. They said they be­lieved that the man they had taken into cus­tody, Nathaniel D. Rowland, 24, had re­cently lived nearby.

Rowland faced mur­der and kid­nap­ping charges. He was ar­rested early Satur­day when po­lice found him driv­ing a car that re­sem­bled the one Joseph­son had en­tered, said Wil­liam H. Hol­brook, chief of the Columbia Po­lice Depart­ment.
