Yoga Teacher Kaitlin Armstrong Murdered Cyclist Ex-Lover Anna Moriah Wilson

Kaitlin Armstrong, aged 36, managed to stay under the radar in Costa Rica for several weeks until she made a crucial mistake by responding to an advertisement for a yoga instructor. This error, according to authorities, ultimately led to her apprehension and subsequent conviction for the murder of professional cyclist Anna Moriah Wilson, known as “Mo.”

In 2023, Armstrong was found guilty and handed a 90-year prison sentence for fatally shooting 25-year-old Wilson. The tragic incident stemmed from a love triangle involving Armstrong’s partner, Colin Strickland, who is also a professional cyclist. Wilson’s body was discovered on May 11, 2022.

Following the murder, Armstrong used a counterfeit passport to flee to Costa Rica. Investigators from the U.S. Marshals Service revealed in an exclusive interview with CBS’ “48 Hours” that she was suspected to be hiding in one of the country’s numerous hostels.

For weeks, detectives scoured Provincia de Puntarenas in search of Kaitlin Armstrong, but their efforts turned up empty. They ingratiated themselves with locals and even attended various yoga classes, hoping for a glimpse of Armstrong. It wasn’t until later that they discovered she had been using aliases, had changed her appearance with dyed hair and a nose job.

In a clever move to leverage Armstrong’s love for yoga against her, investigators placed a strategic ad on Facebook, stating, “We’re at this hostel, we’re looking for a yoga instructor as soon as possible.” Despite a week passing with no response, U.S. Marshals were prepared to return to the U.S. Then, an email arrived: a woman claiming to be a yoga instructor expressed interest in meeting at a hostel near Santa Teresa Beach.

According to “48 Hours,” one of the investigators met the woman in person on June 29, 2022, and confirmed her identity as the fugitive. With this confirmation, they took her into custody, bringing an end to a weeks-long manhunt that captured international attention and sent shockwaves through the cycling community.

Why did Kaitlin Armstrong kill Anna Moriah ‘Mo’ Wilson?

Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson was a promising figure in the gravel and mountain cycling scene. Prosecutors revealed that Kaitlin Armstrong harbored jealousy towards Wilson for briefly dating Armstrong’s boyfriend during a temporary breakup in October 2021. Tragically, Wilson was discovered dead from apparent gunshot wounds inside a friend’s residence in Austin, Texas.

During the investigation, authorities noticed a vehicle resembling Armstrong’s Jeep Cherokee parked outside the home where Wilson’s body was found. The day following the murder, Armstrong was brought in for questioning by the police but was subsequently released. It was shortly after this encounter that Armstrong fled to Costa Rica.

Following her arrest after responding to the yoga ad, Armstrong was detained at the Travis County Correctional Complex in Del Valle, Texas. However, her attempts at escape persisted. During transportation to a medical appointment, Armstrong managed to break free from the custody of two deputies and attempted to flee. She only made it a short distance before being apprehended by local law enforcement.
