Samantha pulled out her phone andordered an uber.
Just nine minutes later surveillancefootage from the bird dog shows a blackchevrolet impala pulling up outside . Samantha steps outside , enters the vehicle and greets her driver . The man at the wheel was named nathanielrolandand although he didn't say anything as Samantha climbed into his car he hadn'tactually been expecting a passenger.
The car that samantha had climbed intowasn't her uber.
IT was just a similar looking vehicle.
She drunkenly mistaken for her ride
you'd expect roland to ultimately tellher to get out of the car but he didn't .
He simply engaged the locks trappingSamantha inside then drove off
It's not clear whether or not Samantharealized her mistake before rolandstopped the vehicle but at some point
roland parked up his impala pulled out aknife and inflicted a sustained andsavage attack upon the terrified samantha
using a bizarre looking two-bladed knife.
Roland proceeded to stab samantha 120times.
she attempted to shield herself but shewas trapped and roland was armed . As well as several horrific defensivewounds roland also stabbed Josephson in the head with so much force that theknife went through her skull to herbrain
but the killer blow seems to have come
when he stabbed her in the carotid
one of two main arteries that carriesblood to the brain.
Samantha also sustained wounds to her
face neck shoulder torso back lung legand feet bleeding out within just 10 to 15minutes.
Roland then dumped samantha's body inthe new zion field where she wasdiscovered by a handful of local turkeyhunters.
The following morning samantha'sroommates became deeply concerned whenthey found she hadn't returned home.
Police rushed into action easily tracingher last known where abouts to the bird dog bar and a nathaniel rowland's blackchevy impala . Officers later happened across Rolandwhile he was out driving and after atraffic stop was attempted roland jumpedout of the stationary vehicle and beganto flee
inside his car . Police officers found acontainer of liquid bleach germicidalwipes and a bottle of window cleaner but perhaps the most incriminating pieceof evidence was samantha's phone which
Roland had foolishly chosen to keep . Hewas arrested questioned and tissuesamples were takendisturbingly the tissues under roland'snails tested positive for samantha's DNAmeaning whatever he was doing after he'dkilled her
it'd have been rigorousenough for particles of her skin tobecome embedded under his nails .Roland was soon charged with samantha's
kidnap and murder and it became apparentthat Samantha wasn't his first
IT apparently car jacked a woman at thestoplight in october of 2018and was extremely violent in thecommission of the crime
beating her and threatening her. Beforethey drove to an atm to almost empty her bank account.
In july of 2021 Roland was found guiltyof kidnapping and murdering
With thejudge sentencing him to life in prison.
The same judge a veteran of the legalcircuit said the murder was perhaps the
most heartless and severe he'd ever seen
Denying roland's request for leniency
it's also easy to see whyRoland displayed some horrifying predatory behavior.
When a stranger accidentally climbs intotheir car
correct thinking people simply laugh it
off perhaps getting a little prickly ifthey're in a bad mood
But Roland found a stranger climbinginto his back seat
and his first thoughts were nothing
short of bloodthirsty
Samantha josephson made an honest andsimple mistake
and nathaniel roland
made her paywith her life.
