Police found bloody clothes belonging to Richards, but DNA test results had not been returned yet, Huff said.

Iowa State University paid tribute to Barquín, a student and European champion. She won the 2018 Big 12 championship, an annual tournament contested between 10 leading U.S. sports universities, and was crowned European Ladies' Amateur champion in July. Iowa State President Wendy Wintersteen said in a statement on Twitter that she was "deeply saddened" by Barquin's death. "She just had this great light about her", said Barquin Arozamena's coach Christie Martens, according to CBS.

Richards had lived in small towns throughout western Iowa, residing with his mother, father and grandparents at various times. Officers found Richards with several fresh scratches on his face consistent with fighting and a deep laceration in his left hand that he tried to hide, it said.

A police dog tracked Barquin's scent to a homeless encampment along a creek near the golf course where Richards had been living in a tent, the complaint said.

Officers found two pairs of shorts in his backpack with blood on them, and they retrieved Richards' knife from someone he allegedly gave it to after the attack.

"It's extremely troubling", Huff said.

Garcia revealed he had "the pleasure of meeting her" and called her a "special person".

Richards is charged with murder and being held on $5 million bond.

Richards, who faces life in prison if convicted, reported in a financial affidavit that he has no job. Paul Rounds, a public defender assigned to represent him, filed paperwork asserting his right to not speak to investigators.

Barquin Arozamena was a stand-out golfer for ISU and was working to finish her degree in civil engineering.

She was one of the most accomplished golfers in school history. Police said the 22-year-old was stabbed and left in a pond on the golf course. She ended her collegiate career with a fourth straight NCAA Regional appearance and earned All-Big 12 Team honors for the third time.

Hundreds of young people turned out at the Wednesday-night vigil in front of the campanile, which is a symbol of the university, and where a table had been adorned with a photo of the champion playing her beloved game.

But politicians who quickly expressed outrage about the immigrant suspect charged with killing runner Mollie Tibbetts have been silent or more restrained about the white homeless man accused in the death of a college golf star from Spain. "We will never forget her competitive drive to be the best and her passion for life".

Richards was released from prison in June after serving about seven months for violating his probations for several crimes he committed in Guthrie County, including an incident in January 2015 at a convenience store in Bayard.
