Slain USC Student Will Be Honored with Posthumous Degree
Samantha Josephson planned to graduate this spring, attend law school.
The University of South Carolina student who was killed after getting into a car she mistook for an Uber will be honored with a posthumous degree.
USC President Harris Pastides announced that Samantha Josephson's parents plan to attend Commencement this May, where Josephson would have received her diploma.
Josephson is originally from New Jersey. She planned to attend law school after graduating from USC. She disappeared in the early hours of March 29, after surveillance video captured her getting into a car outside a Columbia bar, where she had been waiting for her Uber to arrive.
Her body was later found in a neighboring county. A 24-year-old man has been arrested and charged with her kidnapping and death.
