Champion female golfer, 22, murdered - body dumped on golf course

Arozamena was found dead Monday morning at a golf course in Iowa. A 22-year-old man has been charged with her murder

Barquin's success on the golf course also continued in Europe, where she won the European Ladies' Amateur championship fewer than two months before her death.

The man, identified as D.B., said he'd stayed with a man identified as Richards, 22, at the camp site. Barquin was found dead a short distance away by officers from Ames Police Department. He had been living in the woods near the golf course and is considered homeless. He was arrested on September 18 according to the Story County website.

Barquin Arozamena was one of the most accomplished players in the Iowa State's golf history, the university said.

A 22-year-old golfer headed for the height of her sport was instead murdered on the course. He has no known address.

Story County Attorney Jessica Reynolds told the Des Moines Register newspaper that the state believed Richards to be a "flight risk" and "a danger to the community".

Ames police announced on their Twitter account that the body of former Iowa State women's golf standout Celia Barquin Arozamena, 22, had been found by other golfers, and an investigation determined the victim had been assaulted and died as a result. She was the 2018 golf champion in the Big 12 league and Female Athlete of the Year at the Iowa State University.

She added: "We will never forget her competitive drive to be the best and her passion for life".

According to Iowa State, Arozamena made four straight NCAA regional appearances, was on the All-Big 12 team three times and was a three-time first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection.

Spain's sports minister Jose Guirao tweeted that "her loss leaves us broken" and offered his condolences to her friends, family and "the whole family of sports".

She had finished her university golf career, which ran from 2015 to 2018, and was wrapping up her studies for a civil engineering degree.

Commander Huff asked the public to come forward with any information they might have about the killing.

She became the third Cyclone women's golfer to compete in the U.S. Women's Open Championship and was ranked No. 69 nationally by Golfweek.

"Our hearts, our prayers and our support go out to Celia, her family and certainly her teammates that are really responding to such a (cowardly) act of violence".

The university president, Wendy Wintersteen, said she was "deeply saddened to learn of the tragic death", describing her as an "acclaimed golfer with a bright future".

The Cyclones will honor Barquin Arozamena with a decal emblazoned with her initials in their home game Saturday against Akron (11 a.m.; FSN).
