Her lifeless body was found in a wooded area behind the UGA Intramural Fields with visible signs of injury, leading authorities to quickly classify her death as a homicide.

The arrest of 26-year-old Jose Antonio Ibarra, a non-U.S. citizen living in the Athens area, sent shockwaves through the community.

Ibarra, who is reportedly from Venezuela, faces a litany of charges, including murder, aggravated assault, kidnapping and interfering with a 911 call.

Investigators revealed that Riley succumbed to blunt force trauma, with no prior connection between her and Ibarra, leading law enforcement to characterize the incident as a “crime of opportunity.

Described as a dedicated student and cherished member of the Alpha Chi Omega sorority, Riley’s untimely death has left her family, friends, and community reeling.

A graduate of River Ridge High School in Cherokee County, where she excelled as a member of the cross-country team, Riley was known for her boundless love of learning and kindness to others.

In the wake of the tragedy, both UGA and Augusta University suspended classes on Friday and urged anyone with relevant information to come forward in the ongoing investigation.

As authorities continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding Riley’s death, they have issued a public appeal for additional evidence. The profound impact of her loss has reverberated throughout the community, prompting an outpouring of grief and solidarity for Riley’s loved ones.
