The man was almost immediately captured and identified as 24-year-old Nathaniel David Rowland. Following his arrest, authorities reportedly made a number of gruesome discoveries inside the vehicle.

As reported by WYFF4, authorities noted the doors and windows on Rowland’s vehicle were outfitted with child safety mechanisms, which likely made it impossible for anyone to exit the vehicle unless they were disengaged by the driver. They reportedly found Samantha Josephson’s cell phone, towels, cleaning products, and “a large amount” of what was later confirmed to be Samantha Josephson’s blood. The U.S. Sun reports authorities later found a knife, which possibly belonged to Rowland, covered in Samantha Josephson’s blood. Rowland was ultimately charged with murder, kidnapping, and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a crime.

During the trial, pathologist Dr. Thomas Beaver described around 120 separate stab wounds on Josephson’s body, with a majority of the wounds on her head, chest, back, and arms. KTLA 5 reports said the wounds were so serious that only 1.3 tablespoons of blood were left in her body when she was found. On July 27, 2021, he was convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

As reported by The U.S. Sun, Rowland maintained his innocence and has never accepted any responsibility for Josephson’s kidnapping or death. Prosecutors admitted they never identified a motive for the gruesome attack and believe “it was absolutely a random act of violence.”
