Family 'heart-broken' over death of star golfer

  • A course closed sign sits in front of the Coldwater Golf Links course Tuesday Sept. 18 2018 in Ames Iowa after the body of Iowa State University student Celia Barquin Arozamena a top amateur golfer from Spain was found on the course the day before

A 22-year-old homeless man named Collin Daniel Richards was identified as the suspect, police said in a release.

Carlos and Celia had been dreaming of a life together, until hers ended so tragically on the ninth hole on the Coldwater Golf Links course.

"During a search of the wooded area next to the golf course, officers located a subject who spoke of another individual living in the wooded area who had made statements of having an urge to rape and kill women".

Richards had lived in small towns throughout western Iowa, residing with his mother, father and grandparents at various times.

When police arrived, the man said Richards appeared "disheveled" and "covered in blood, sand and water".

It was just a month later Richards found himself in front of judge again for stealing a vehicle. Richards had fresh cuts and scratches consistent with fighting and also tried to hide his left hand from officers, according to an Ames police criminal complaint.

As Barquin's colleagues began grieving the loss of a talented teammate and classmate, Richards was ordered jailed on a $5 million cash-only bond at the county jail and facing the rest of his life in prison. She was the third Iowa State women's golfer to compete in the U.S. Women's Open Championship. She became one of the best in school history and was completing her civil engineering degree after exhausting her athletic eligibility earlier this year.

Arozamena was going to be on the field at halftime of Saturday's game to be honored as Iowa State's female athlete of the year.

Swedish golfing great Annika Sorenstam called the murder "horrendous", as she posted a picture of herself alongside Barquin after she won the 2018 European Ladies' Amateur Championship in Slovakia in July.

Richards left prison in June after serving seven months for violating the terms of his probation, following convictions for burglary, theft, criminal mischief and harassment, according to the Iowa Department of Corrections.

Relatives in Spain of a star collegiate golfer who was stabbed to death by a stranger on an Iowa golf course say they are distraught. Soon he was back in Ames, arrested weeks later after being found passed out at a liquor store and admitting that he drank heavily after taking antidepressants. In one case, the Iowa State Patrol seized a long knife from him during a traffic stop.

Carlos, wearing a yellow flower in his lapel - that was Celia's favorite color - explained how they had first been in touch: at 3am one night, he got a phone call from a girl who shouted down the phone at him: "You're Spanish!"

A judge set Richards' preliminary hearing for 1 p.m. on September 28.
