Relatives of Iowa man charged in golfer's death 'devastated'

Collin Daniel Richards. Story County Sheriff's Department

The anguished mother of slain college golfer Celia Barquín Arozamena paid tribute to her daughter in Spain as hundreds gathered at Iowa State University to weep over their fallen fellow student.

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 unattended golf bag was discovered by golfers at the Coldwater Golf Links in Ames early on Monday, and police found her body in a pond a short distance away with stab wounds to the head, neck and upper torso. The man told police that Richards had told him recently "of having an urge to rape and kill a woman", an affidavit filed in court says. An immigrant from Mexico is charged in the July slaying of University of Iowa student Mollie Tibbetts, who vanished while out for a run in the town of Brooklyn.

Police found bloody clothes belonging to Richards, but DNA test results had not been returned yet, Huff said. A second acquaintance told police that Richards arrived at his home on Monday appearing "disheveled and covered in blood, sand and water".

About 3 p.m. he approached officers as they searched the area of his campsite, and he had scratches on his face and a deep cut on his left hand, which he tried to hide, court records show.

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 one of the most accomplished golfers in school history.

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

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. Wherever life takes us, she said, each one of us will have our halves.

Barquin competed in the 2018 US Women's Open in June as an amateur. Even though she completed her eligibility as a golfer, she was remaining in Ames to finish her degree in civil engineering. 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.

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!"

Richards was sent to prison a year ago 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.
