NEWLY-released surveillance footage shows a fugitive yoga teacher at a Texas airport shortly after she allegedly killed a cyclist in a jealous rage.
Kaitlin Armstrong, 34, may have fled from Texas to New York City after murdering 25-year-old cyclist Moriah Wilson, according to police.
US Marshals tweeted images of Armstrong on Wednesday, two weeks after Wilson was found dead on a bathroom floor in Austin, Texas.
They said: “Armstrong was last seen on surveillance video 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 possible yoga mat carrier on her shoulders.”
Police believe Armstrong was at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on May 14.
They say she boarded a flight from Austin to Houston Hobby Airport and then got on a connecting flight to New York’s LaGuardia Airport.
Wilson was found dead on May 11 while she was attending a cycling contest in Austin, Texas.
According to an affidavit and arrest warrant filed May 19, Moriah was “lying on the bathroom floor covered in blood.”
There were multiple fired cartridge cases on the floor near her body but a firearm wasn’t immediately found.
Armstrong is believed to have shot the athlete multiple times in a jealous rage.
According to Wilson’s friend, Caitlin Cash, Wilson had said she planned on going swimming with fellow cyclist Colin Strickland, 35.
The two allegedly had a brief fling last year after Strickland’s relationship with Armstrong had been on a break.
They reportedly remained friends after this relationship ended and still spent time with one another.
However, Armstrong had apparently only found out about the brief romance in January, police believe that she snapped after learning about her boyfriend’s secret tryst with Wilson on May 11.
Cops said Strickland told Armstrong he was going out to deliver flowers but his phone battery had died, so he would be unable to contact her.
But he was actually taking a dip with Moriah at the Deep Eddy pool – which police believe motivated Armstrong to pursue deadly revenge.
Strickland had walked his former lover back to the house at around 8.30pm, shortly before Armstrong’s black 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee was seen stalking the street.
It is thought she may have discovered the duo’s location after finding Moriah’s public account on the Strava fitness app.
Moments after the SUV was picked up on a Ring camera, Moriah’s friend returned home to find her shot dead in a pool of blood.
Yoga teacher Armstrong then returned home to Strickland after allegedly murdering the 25-year-old and was apprehended by cops – before vanishing.
