Kaitlin Armstrong Murder
Kaitlin Armstrong, convicted of killing pro cyclist Mo Wilson, sentenced to 90 years in prison.
The victim in question is Anna Moriah Wilson, a professional cyclist known as Mo. Allegedly, Kaitlin committed this crime after discovering that her then-boyfriend, Colin Strickland, who is also a professional cyclist, had been involved with Anna.
Following the incident, the police questioned Kaitlin’s close friend, Marie, as part of their investigation. However, Kaitlin decided to make a drastic move. She left the country and relocated to Costa Rica in an attempt to avoid the authorities. But it seems she couldn’t escape the long arm of American law enforcement.
They tracked her down 43 days later and brought her back to the United States. In an intriguing twist, Kaitlin underwent plastic surgery to alter her appearance, making it challenging for the police to identify her. She was eventually brought to court in July 2023, where she entered a plea of not guilty.
Recent reports have also surfaced, indicating that Kaitlin attempted to escape from the police during a medical appointment. According to sources, as Kaitlin was leaving the medical facility, she made a run for it.
However, her bid for freedom was short-lived, as the police managed to catch her after a 10-minute chase. In this article, we’ll delve deeper into the details surrounding Kaitlin’s case, shedding light on the events that have unfolded. So, keep reading for more insights into this gripping story.
Kaitlin Armstrong Found Guilty
Former yoga instructor Kaitlin Armstrong has been found guilty of the murder of professional cyclist Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson. The trial, held in Austin, Texas, shed light on a story tangled in relationships and a chilling motive.
Anna Moriah Wilson, just 25 years old, was fatally shot on May 11, 2022, at a friend’s home. The case unraveled a series of connections: Wilson, previously involved with Armstrong’s on-and-off boyfriend, professional cyclist Colin Strickland, spent her final day cycling, swimming, and dining with Strickland before being dropped off at her friend’s house.
The trial revealed unsettling details. Prosecutors argued that Armstrong had used a fitness app to track Wilson’s whereabouts and monitored her activities on social media in the days before the murder. Armstrong’s turbulent history with Strickland and her anger over his continued friendship with Wilson formed a motive for the tragic incident.
Armstrong’s actions post-murder added intrigue. Initially questioned and mistakenly released, she then fled to New York City and eventually Costa Rica, where she was arrested over a month later using a fraudulent passport.
During the trial, Armstrong’s friend Nicole Mertz testified to Armstrong’s hostility toward Wilson, recounting a disturbing conversation where Armstrong allegedly expressed intentions to harm anyone serious in Strickland’s romantic life.
While the guilty verdict provides a sense of closure for the trial phase, Armstrong’s sentencing, pending at a later date, could result in a life sentence in prison.
The police checked Anna Wilson’s phone and found out that she was dating Colin Strickland while he was still in a relationship with Kaitlin Armstrong. At first, Strickland said he didn’t know Wilson, but later he admitted to being in a relationship with her.
He kept his contact with Wilson a secret from Armstrong by deleting her messages and saving her number with a different name. It’s said that Armstrong found out about this and wanted to hurt Wilson. She even mentioned getting a gun recently or planning to. Strickland confessed to buying two handguns, one for Armstrong and one for himself.
The police searched their house and found these guns. They also found a bullet casing from one of the guns that matched a casing found at the place of the crime. The search also showed that Armstrong had been to a shooting range, supposedly to learn how to use a gun.
Because of all this, the police issued an arrest warrant for Kaitlin Armstrong on May 17, charging her with first-degree murder. After being on the run for 43 days, Armstrong was caught by the U.S. Marshals at a hostel in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica on June 29, 2022. In a press conference about her capture, the U.S. Marshals revealed that she used someone else’s passport to escape to Costa Rica.
