US Marshals reveal new details on suspect in deadly love triangle

AUSTIN, Texas (KTRK) – The search for Kaitlin Armstrong, who is wanted in connection with the death of cyclist Moriah Wilson in Austin, Texas, is still ongoing, and the US Marshals Service is now offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to her capture.
Armstrong was dropped off at Newark Liberty International Airport in New Jersey on May 18, a day after Austin police issued a warrant for her arrest, according to the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force, which is aiding with the fugitive investigation.

A review of departure flights at the Newark airport revealed no reservations made under the name Kaitlin Marie Armstrong, according to officials.

Armstrong is the main suspect in the killing of Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson, a 25-year-old cycling champion who was found shot to death at a friend’s apartment on Maple Avenue near East 7th Street in East Austin on May 11.
Since Armstrong was briefly detained and wrongly released on an unrelated crime, law enforcement has been unable to locate him.

“Armstrong was mistakenly released from custody on a misdemeanor warrant because her date of birth in our report management system did not match the date of birth on the warrant,” stated Austin police Detective Richard Spitler in a press conference on May 25.

Armstrong had dated famous cyclist Colin Strickland for a few years, according to further study. While Strickland and Armstrong were on a temporary break last year, he was romantically involved with Wilson.

Wilson was shot and killed over a love triangle, according to investigators, because Wilson and Strickland were out the day of the murder, and Armstrong’s car was seen traveling about the area where Wilson was killed.
A search warrant was executed at Armstrong and Strickland’s home the day following the murder.

“Two handguns were confiscated, and the Austin Police Department’s Ballistic Unit definitively identified one of them as the firearm that fired the expended cartridge cases during Wilson’s murder on May 17, 2020. A warrant for Armstrong’s arrest for murder was issued by a municipal court judge the same day “Detective Spitler stated.

Armstrong was last seen on May 14 at around 12:30 p.m. at the Austin International Bergstrom Airport, according to investigators. She flew from ABIA to Houston Hobby Airport on Flight #WN2262, then to New York LaGuardia Airport on Southwest Airlines Flight #WN30.
On May 25, detectives acquired a new warrant for Armstrong’s unlawful flight to avoid prosecution from the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas.

“Kaitlin Armstrong is accused of a very severe felony for which she must answer,” said Susan Pamerleau, US Marshal for the Western District of Texas. “The best thing she can do now, wherever she is, is surrender to police so she can come to Austin safely and face the accusations she faces. She must be assured that the Marshals would not abandon their search for her.”

Armstrong is a Caucasian man who is 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs 125 pounds. She has light brown long curly hair and hazel eyes, and was last seen wearing a blue denim jacket, black shirt with a pink design on the chest, white jeans, black and white tennis shoes, a black COVID mask, and a probable yoga mat carrier on her shoulders, as seen on security camera.
