Family 'heart-broken' over death of star golfer

Celia Barquin Family 'heart-broken' over death of star golfer
Noah Ferguson | 22 September, 2018, 00:57

"This is a tragic and senseless loss of a talented young woman and an acclaimed student athlete", Iowa State University President Dr. Wendy Wintersteen stated in the release.

Celia Barquin Arozamena, who was working toward joining the pro tour while finishing her degree at Iowa State University, was stabbed by the assailant Monday morning and left dead in a pond on the golf course, police said.

Richards, 22, is charged with first-degree murder in Arozamena's death and is being held on $5 million cash bond.

The 22-year-old engineering student had been named female athlete of the year earlier this year after winning the Big 12 women's golf championship. "She was my sister", M.J. Kamin, Barquin Arozamena's teammate, said. She also said she might be open to considering a plan to require Iowa employers to use the government's E-Verify system to check their workers' eligibility to be in the US, although it's not clear whether that would have prevented the farm from hiring Rivera.

Richards had lived in small towns throughout western Iowa, residing with his mother, father and grandparents at various times. In April, she became the second women's golfer at Iowa State to earn medallist honours at a conference tournament when claiming the 2018 Big 12 Championship.

A police dog tracked Barquin's scent to a homeless encampment along a creek near the golf course where Richards had been living in a tent, the complaint said.

After the attack, Richards allegedly went to visit an acquaintance in a nearby neighborhood and bathed.

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

It was just a month later Richards found himself in front of judge again for stealing a auto. Officers found Richards with several scratches on his face consistent with fighting and a deep laceration in his left hand that he tried to hide, it said.

Richards was sent to prison previous year only after he tested positive for methamphetamine and marijuana, failed to complete an anger-management course he started four times and didn't pay court-ordered fees to a halfway house, court records show.

Iowa State University paid tribute to Barquín, a student and European champion.

"We will never forget her competitive drive to be the best and her passion for life", Martens said. "I had the pleasure of meeting her and I know she was a special person", he said.

But politicians who quickly expressed outrage about the immigrant suspect charged with killing runner Mollie Tibbetts have been silent or more restrained about the white homeless man accused in the death of a college golf star from Spain.

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!"
