Nathaniel David Rowland, the accused killer of a University of SC student, wasn't in court Sunday, but that didn't stop the victim's mother from ripping into him in a statement to the judge.

Friends and family of Josephson said she was ready to head to law school and that she was a ball of energy who brightened every room, according to The Associated Press.

An autopsy on 21-year-old Samantha Josephson indicated she died of "multiple sharp force injuries", according to a Monday news release from the State Law Enforcement Division and Clarendon County Coroner Bucky Mock.

Authorities began collecting information on Josephson's last known whereabouts and asked for photos they could distribute to media outlets. "Unlike him, Samantha had love within her heart and objective in her life, the life he brutally ended", she said.

Josephson's blood was found in the trunk and inside Rowland's vehicle along with her cellphone, bleach, window cleaner and cleaning wipes, Holbrook said.

"Our hearts are broken", Columbia Police Chief Skip Holbrook said at a weekend news conference, shortly after meeting Josephson's relatives, who had arrived from New Jersey.

"I'm just sick about this", said state Rep. Seth Rose, the Columbia Democrat who will file the bill and lives a quarter-mile from the Five Points curb where 21-year-old Samantha Josephson was picked up early Friday morning.

Nathaniel David Rowland is charged with kidnapping and murder of Samantha Josephson of Robbinsville.

Turkey hunters in rural Clarendon County discovered Josephson's body on Friday afternoon, just over 12 hours after she was spotted hopping into a auto outside a bar in Columbia's Five Points area.

Nathaniel David Rowland, 24, was arrested in a traffic stop at 3 a.m. Saturday a few blocks from the Five Points area where friends last saw her late Thursday.

Timmons said the acquaintance is cooperating with law enforcement and that there is no indication at this time that she was in the vehicle when Josephson got in the auto. Investigators also found a container of liquid bleach, germicidal wipes and window cleaner in the vehicle, he said.

Police also say Rowland had a child seat in the backseat and had child safety locks on the auto doors so Stephenson could not get out. He was being held in the Richland County jail.

Mr Holbrook said: "Our hearts are broken".

The homicide investigation is ongoing, Holbrook said. "It was gut-wrenching; words really can't describe what they're going through". It's personal to us. "I will miss and love my baby girl for the rest of life".

Josephson's father, Seymour Josephson of New Jersey, confirmed his daughter's death Saturday on Facebook. "Travel in groups and stay together".

"It is extremely hard to write this and post it but I love her with all my heart".
