Vigil honors star golfer from Spain who was killed in Iowa

Collin Daniel Richards was remanded in custody

The Big 12 conference champion, Barquin had dreams of making the pro tour and spent hours practicing at Coldwater Golf Links in Ames.

The family of Celia Barquin Arozamena, a champion golfer from Spain who was studying in Iowa and was found murdered on a golf course, have spoken out in the wake of her killing.

Jefferson Police Chief Mark Clouse confirmed a series of run-ins with Collin Richards when he lived on South Elm Street in Jefferson for a couple of years. Her body was found in a pond near the ninth hole with multiple stab wounds in the head, neck and torso, Ames police said.

Richards, who is homeless, had been camping in a wooded park just north of the golf course with another man. An immigrant from Mexico is charged in the July 18 kidnapping and stabbing of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, who vanished while out for a run in the small town of Brooklyn.

Investigators later recovered two pairs of shorts with blood stains and a knife that Richards allegedly gave to two other people after the slaying, the complaint said. A second acquaintance told police that Richards arrived at his nearby home on Monday appearing "disheveled and covered in blood, sand and water" before bathing and leaving. Dogs tracked his scent and found him with fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting and a deep laceration on his left hand.

Richards is charged with murder and being held on $5 million bond. If convicted, Richards will face life in prison without the possibility of parole.

On Wednesday, she urged Iowa State fans to wear yellow to Saturday's football game to honor Barquin.

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

Brett Kavanaugh's Accuser Comes Forward
In the interview , Ford says she didn't reveal what had happened until 2012, when she and her husband sought couples therapy. Her allegation has now put in doubt the timing of a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation , and perhaps the nomination itself.

She was one of the most accomplished golfers in school history. She was the third Iowa State women's golfer to compete in the U.S. Women's Open Championship.

"Yes, she was an incredible golfer, yes she was a terrific engineering student, yes she even died a horrific death, but this doesn't capture who she was".

"We will never forget her competitive drive to be the best and her passion for life", Martens said.

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.

Richards had recently served time in prison and was released in June of this year.

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.

Richards once threatened to "shoot up" a convenience store where he was caught shoplifting.
