Cyclist and murder suspect Kaitlyn Armstrong’s vehicle located

A vehicle that had been registered to cyclist and murder suspect Kaitlyn Armstrong was located in Austin, Texas at a CarMax dealership where she had sold the vehicle right before apparently going on the run from authorities, Fox 7 Austin reported.

The U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force located the black Jeep Grand Cherokee, which had been sold to the dealership on May 13. Armstrong received a check for $12,200 from the dealership the day after she was questioned by authorities in the death of 25-year-old fellow cyclist Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson, who was found at a friend’s apartment in East Austin on May 11, shot dead.

Police believe Armstrong left Austin via the airport on May 14, and was last seen at Newark International Airport on May 18, when an arrest warrant was issued for her on the homicide charges.

She may have been headed to a campground two-and-a-half hours away in New York to meet her sister. She had been seen at the campground a month earlier, and her sister applied for a driver’s license in New York on May 17, giving the campground as an address.

“Major” case

Authorities have elevated the case to “major” status and are offering combined rewards of up to $21,000 for information that leads to the capture of Armstrong.

She is believed to have killed Wilson after learning that she was involved with her boyfriend Colin Strickland, also a cyclist, while he and Armstrong were on a break.

Wilson was in Texas at the time of her murder preparing for a race. She was an up-and-coming star and had recently won the Belgian Waffle Ride in California.

Police had Armstrong in custody on an unrelated charge, but mistakenly released her because her birth date on paperwork didn’t match their records.

Mistakenly released

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

Since then, Armstrong has eluded police.

She is described as 5 feet 8 inches, white, and weighing approximately 125 pounds. She has light brown long, curly hair and hazel eyes. Surveillance video showed her 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.

If anyone has information about Armstrong’s whereabouts, they can contact the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102 or submit a tip using the USMS Tips app.
