  • 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

Police said the 22-year-old had "several stab wounds to the upper torso, head and neck" and appeared to have been attacked in what authorities believe was a random act of violence.

Huff said no one else had been charged, but that the investigation was ongoing.

Chicago: A homeless man who allegedly wanted to "rape and kill women" has been charged with murder for stabbing to death champion Spanish college golfer Celia Barquin Arozamena, police in the USA state of Iowa said Tuesday.

It is the second fatal stabbing of a female student in Iowa in recent months.

The 22-year-old Iowa State University student's body was discovered Monday morning by staff at Goldwater Golf Links in the city of Ames.

Richards faces life in prison if he is convicted. Police later arrested Richards, who had been living in a homeless encampment near the course.


At around 2 p.m., police encountered Richards, who had "several fresh scratches on his face consistent with a fight", according to Commander Geoff Huff, and was also attempting to hide a laceration on his left hand.

A witness also said that Richards allegedly talked about "having an urge to rape and kill a woman", CBS reported. Richards then left the man's house with his clothes in a black backpack, police 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 USA, although it's not clear whether that would have prevented the farm from hiring Rivera.

Police said officers recovered a knife that Richards had given to acquaintances after the slaying, as well as bloody clothing from his belongings. Officers later encountered and arrested him.

At the service, near the university's chapel, friends and fellow students shared memories of Barquin Arozamena, held candles and shed tears.

In heartbreaking irony, Celia was set to be honored as Female Athlete of the Year at Iowa State's home football game this Saturday. She had been playing an early round of golf. During her freshman year, she shot a career-worst 86 at the Dallas Athletic Club.

During the course of the weekend, Iowa State sports teams will wear a tribute to Barquín consisting of a red and white sticker to represent the Spanish flag with her initials. Barquin, who was ranked No. 69 in the country by Golfweek, was one of three women's golfers to ever compete in the U.S. Women's Open Championship. The team announced Tuesday it was pulling out of the East & West Match Play in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to be with friends and family and to grieve their loss.
