  • New information from the US Marshals reveals that Kaitlin Armstrong fled Texas just days after the murder of Moriah Wilson.
  • Last Friday, the Austin Police Department issued a warrant for the arrest of Kaitlin Armstrong, the partner of gravel racer Colin Strickland.
  • On May 11, gravel racing’s Mo Wilson was shot and killed in Austin, Texas, where she had traveled to race Gravel Locos.

    It appears that Kaitlin Armstrong fled to New York just days after the murder of Moriah ‘Mo’ Wilson. Armstrong was accused of shooting Wilson in Austin, Texas, on May 11, and according to the US Marshals, she fled Texas after being interviewed by the police about the crime.

    The Austin American-Statesman reported that Armstrong was last seen at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on May 14 around 12:30 in the afternoon. That was three days after Wilson’s death and a day after being interviewed by police in relation to the murder, but several days before the warrant for her arrest was issued. She took a connecting Southwest flight to LaGuardia in New York. She hasn’t been apprehended yet, and this news may change the way the search for her continues. The Statesman also reported that her black Jeep Cherokee also has not been located.

    KXAN out of Austin reports that she was last seen at the airport wearing a denim jacket, black shirt, white jeans and possible carrying a yoga mat bag. (Armstrong is a yoga teacher.)

    Last week, the US Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force said it was officially conducting a fugitive investigation and released a wanted poster to enlist the public’s help in finding Armstrong. The 34-year-old hasn’t been seen since May 13, after being interviewed by the police. Police officers told press that Armstrong “nodded in agreement” when she was told that the video surveillance footage showing her Jeep approaching Wilson’s dwelling “didn’t look good for her.”

    Later, police said they received anonymous tips detailing the so-called “love triangle” between Wilson, gravel racer Colin Strickland and Armstrong. Strickland admitted in a statement that he and Wilson briefly dated while he and Armstrong were broken up in 2021. He and Armstrong reconciled afterwards and were seemingly living together at the time of Wilson’s death. Another tipster told police that Armstrong said she wanted to kill Wilson, a short time before Strickland purchased 9mm handguns for both himself and Armstrong.

    As the case against Armstrong builds, it seems even more incomprehensible that she is still at large. Until the footage from the airport was released, US Marshals believed she was still in the Austin area. Hopefully, this new information helps law enforcement officials continue their search with more information, and of course, anyone with information is asked to call the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1 (800) 336-0102 or submit a tip using the USMS Tips app.
