Arozamena’s body was found at the Coldwater Links golf course at 10:24 a.m. local time after somebody called them in for suspicious activity since a golf bag was left unattended in the middle of the course. They located her body “some distance away,” at the golf course later on.

“The public should be very wary right now,” Police Cmdr. Geoff Huff said in a press conference. “Right now, all leads are important.”

Arozamena was ranked No. 69 nationally by Golfweek and was widely popular in the golf world.
