Family ‘heart-broken’ over death of star golfer

Richards has been charged in the killing of Celia Barquin Arozamena, a former champion golfer from Spain, after her body was found Monday, Sept. 17, 2018 at a golf course in Ames, Iowa. The vigil Wednesday evening to remember 22-year-old Celia Barquin Arozamena drew a large crowd to the Ames campus.

Barquin Arozamena was golfing that morning at Coldwater Golf Links on the south side of town when Richards apparently abducted her on the ninth hole about 10 a.m., Ames Police Commander Geoff Huff said in a news conference on Tuesday. Soon after, police charged a homeless man who had been camping nearby with murder in her death.

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

Spain's sports minister Jose Guirao tweeted that "her loss leaves us broken" and offered his condolences to her friends, family and "the whole family of sports". "This guy went to kill a woman and he came across my girl".

Celia Barquín was studying at Iowa State University. She'd also earned an invitation to the 2019 Women's British Open because of her victory at the European Ladies' Amateur Championship in July.

Authorities have described him as homeless, saying he lived in an encampment in the woods near the golf course where the 22-year-old college athlete was playing solo Monday morning.

"It's still very troubling for something like this to happen in broad daylight in a community that is as safe as Ames is", Ames police Cmdr.

Barquin had been working toward joining the pro tour while finishing her degree at Iowa State University.

Richards was arrested and is held in Story County jail in lieu of $5 million bail.

He had no prior criminal record in Iowa before, police say, he followed Tibbetts, a 20-year-old University of Iowa student, in a auto while she was running on July 18 in the small town of Brooklyn.

Celia will also be honored Saturday with a pre-game ceremony at Jack Trice Stadium before the Cyclone football team takes on Akron.

Paul Rounds, a public defender representing Richards, declined comment.

Police have said the suspect told an acquaintance he wanted to rape and kill someone.

She was one of the most accomplished golfers in school history. He had "fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting", the affidavit says.

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

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.

Head women's golf coach Christie Martens said in a release that Barquin was a well-loved "outstanding representative of our school".

"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 who caught him shoplifting.
