Vigil will honour Iowa State athlete killed while golfing

Iowa State University is planning a series of tributes this weekend to Spanish golfer Celia Barquín Arozamena, who is believed to have been murdered while she was practicing on the local Coldwater course in Ames in the USA state.

Iowa State University is mourning the loss of 22 year old standout golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena. Even though she completed her eligibility as a golfer, she was remaining in Ames to finish her degree in civil engineering.

Arozamena's body was found after golfers discovered her golf bag in the fairway by itself.

Police have charged Collin Daniel Richards, 22, with first-degree murder.

All are invited to the vigil at a green space just north of the university's Campanile.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and the entire Iowa State community as they mourn her tragic passing". He's accused of killing her and leaving her body in a cornfield.

Celia Barquín was studying at Iowa State University. She won the 2018 Big 12 championship, an annual tournament contested between 10 leading U.S. sports universities, and was crowned European Ladies' Amateur champion in July.

A short time later, officers encountered Richards in a homeless camp near the course after a police dog tracked Barquin Arozamena's scent to the area.

"We have charged Richards with murder in the first degree, a class A felony", said Ames Police Commander Geoff Huff in a press conference Tuesday.

"We are all devastated" Barquin Arozamena hailed from Puente San Miguel in Spain, and this year was named Iowa State University's female athlete of the year, having claimed a major conference championship victory.

Richards grew up in small towns in western Iowa, and has a history of violence and substance abuse. A second acquaintance told police that Richards arrived at his nearby home Monday "disheveled and covered in blood, sand and water". Paul Rounds, a public defender assigned to represent him, filed paperwork asserting his right to not speak to investigators.

". lots of people looked weird at me because they don't understand me", she said. Officers found Richards with several fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting, and a deep laceration in his left hand that he tried to hide, it said.

Court records show that since 2014, Richards had been charged with abusing a former girlfriend, stealing a pickup truck after wrecking his own vehicle, using a baseball bat to smash a auto window and burglarizing a gas station.

Employees of Sparky's One Stop saw him try to steal two energy drinks and confronted him.

"When we ask her to do something, she does it and more", Martens said in the video. In another, he threatened to return to a convenience store to shoot clerks after they caught him shoplifting.
