COPY-Ark. university to hold vigil for slain student

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - A university in central Arkansas is mourning the loss of a 20-year-old sophomore whose body was found in a pond south of Little Rock.

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock is planning a vigil for Patricia Guardado on Tuesday.

Authorities say Guardado's body was found Sunday afternoon south of Sweet Home. Her death has been ruled a homicide.

Guardado had been missing since last week. She was last seen leaving her parents' home Wednesday morning.

She had a 9 a.m. calculus class, but police say she never made it. She was reported missing that night.

Police have not released the cause of Guardado's death or details about how she died.

So far, authorities haven't named any suspects. They're offering rewards for information that leads to an arrest.
