Laken Riley, a former Alpha Ki Omega sorority member at the University of Georgia who had transferred to Augusta University to complete her nursing degree, was tragically murdered on while on her morning run. Her friend called 911 at noon to report her missing. Shockingly, her murder occurred just one day after a suicide on the Augusta University campus.

Brutal Attack and Attempt to Conceal the Crime

The suspect, 26-year-old Jose Antonio Ibarra, was arrested in Athens, Georgia. Court documents reveal the brutality of the crime, stating that Ibarra used “an object” to harm Riley, “disfiguring her skull” with blunt force trauma. He then allegedly dragged her body to conceal the death.Disturbingly, Riley’s phone called 911 during the attack, capturing her death on the recording. However, police have stated “no dialogue exists” on the call and have not released it as it is part of the ongoing investigation.
