COLUMBIA, S.C. (WGHP) -- Samantha Josephson, the University of South Carolina student whose body was found in a wooded area over the weekend, died of “multiple sharp force injuries,” according to a coroner's report.

WLTX reported that Clarendon County Coroner Bucky Mock released his findings Monday. Josephson’s body was found Friday afternoon in Clarendon County.

Josephson decided to call an Uber around 2 a.m. Friday after being separated from her roommates during a night out in Columbia, South Carolina, police said Saturday.

The 21-year-old University of South Carolina senior hopped into a black Chevy Impala, thinking it was her ride, Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook said during a news conference.

About 14 hours later, turkey hunters found her body in a field 90 miles from Columbia, he said.

Nathaniel David Rowland, 24, has been arrested on charges of murder and kidnapping in connection with Josephson’s death, Holbrook said. He is being held in jail in Columbia. CNN has not determined if he has a lawyer yet.
