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

The 22-year-old's remains were found in a pond at Coldwater Golf Links in Ames, Iowa, on Monday, authorities said in a press release.

Barquin Arozamena was a three-time All Big 12 golfer, three-time Academic All Big 12 selection, the conference's golfing champion in 2018, and a member of Spain's national team. Police charged a 22-year-old homeless man who had been staying in an encampment near the golf course with first-degree murder in her stabbing death. A second acquaintance told police that Richards arrived at his nearby home Monday "disheveled and covered in blood, sand and water". He's accused of killing her and leaving her body in a cornfield. They found Barquin's body in the pond with several stab wounds to her upper torso, head and neck, according to the complaint filed Tuesday against Richards.

She had finished her university golf career, which ran from 2015 to 2018, and was wrapping up her studies for a civil engineering degree. Records show he was arrested weeks later after he was found passed out near an Ames liquor store, telling police he took antidepressants before drinking alcohol.

Authorities have also warned that the wind field has been growing larger consistently, making the hurricane extremely risky . He said he has been through this many times in his 15 years in the Myrtle Beach area and that "nothing is going to happen".

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.

Athletic Director Jamie Pollard was overcome with emotion as he addressed the media Tuesday on losing a member of the Cyclone family.

"Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, friends and the entire Iowa State community as they mourn her tragic passing".

On Tuesday, Reynolds referred to Barquin's death as "horrific" and "senseless" but said it was premature to determine whether any changes needed to be made to keep young women safe.

"She loved Iowa State and was an outstanding representative for our school".

"We are all devastated", said the university's head women's golf coach, Christie Martens. "We will never forget her competitive drive to be the best and her passion for life".
