Marci Josephson, mother of murdered USC student Samantha, read a statement to the judge on Sunday at the jail hearing for the killer, 24-year-old Nathaniel David Rowland.
Mr Rowland killed her and dumped the body off a dirt road in Clarendon County about 65 miles away from where she was last seen on surveillance video getting into his car, thinking it was her Uber ride.
Miss Josephson’s mother Marci said: ‘There are no words to describe the immense pain, his actions have caused our family and friends. He’s taken away a piece of our heart, soul and life. Shame on him. We thought he would be here to see his evil face.’
‘I can not fathom how someone could randomly select a person, a beautiful girl and steal her life away. His actions were senseless, vile and unacceptable. It sickens us to think that his face was the last thing that my baby girl saw on this earth.’
‘His selfish, unspeakable and violent actions have created a hole in the universe.’
‘He should never be given the right to walk free again for what he did to my daughter, or given the opportunity to hurt anyone else,’ she said.
Police revealed that the 21-year-old student had numerous wounds to her head, neck, face, upper body, leg and foot when her body was found by turkey hunters just hours after she had been dumped there. The video of the girl getting into his black Chevrolet Impala about two blocks from the Five Points bars was allover social media this weekend.
Police said the victim’s blood was also found in the trunk and inside the car along with her.
