As RadarOnline.com has learned, Samantha Josephson's body showed signs of multiple injuries from a sharp object.
In a statement this Monday, April 1, Clarendon County Coroner Bucky Mock said.
Nathaniel David Rowland attacked Josephson, 21, when she hopped into his car thinking he was her Uber driver, on Friday, March 29.
