Family of slain student urges Uber, Lyft awareness

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) In a statement read by her cousin Seth Josephson at her funeral on Wednesday, the family of 21-year-old Samantha Josephson, who was murdered after authorities said she got into what she thought was her Uber, urged ride-sharers to double check to make sure their ride is truly theirs, and demanded accountability from ride-share companies.

A South Carolina man was charged in the University of South Carolina student's murder, who may have gotten into her killer's car mistakenly believing that it was her Uber ride, police said.

Nathaniel Rowland, 24, was charged with the murder and kidnapping of Samantha Josephson, 21, who was last seen outside of Five Points bar in Columbia, South Carolina early Friday morning.

Her friends called the authorities to report a missing person about 12 hours later after they had not seen Josephson since she left the bar the night before, police said.

Two hunters found her body in a wooded area along a dirt road in a rural part of a nearby county a few hours after her friends called police, authorities said.
