A Texas woman wanted in connection with the murder of a professional bicyclist was at an airport in New Jersey one day after authorities secured a warrant for her arrest, but she has since vanished, KXAN-TV reports.
The U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force announced on Monday that 34-year-old Kaitlin Marie Armstrong had been dropped off at the Newark Liberty International Airport on May 18.
However, there are no records of outbound flight reservations made in Armstrong’s name, according to WPTZ-TV.
“Now with that being said, there’s a lot of things that could have happened,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla told KXAN-TV.
“She could have been very deceptive to stay off radar, meaning she got transportation to the airport and may have been there – then got transportation out of there like rideshare or bus. But we do know it’s been confirmed through our investigation her last known whereabouts were at that airport on May 18.”
Armstrong is accused of murdering cyclist Anna Moriah Wilson on May 11 at a home in Austin, Texas. As CrimeOnline has previously reported, investigators believe that Armstrong murdered Wilson because she suspected that Wilson was having an affair with her boyfriend.
Security cameras recorded Armstrong at Austin-Bergstrom International Airport on May 14. She flew to Houston Hobby Airport and then to LaGuardia Airport in New York.
Armstrong is white, 5-foot-8, and weighs about 125 pounds. She has curly, long, light-brown hair and hazel eyes. She was last seen with a blue denim jacket with a black shirt underneath that had a pink design on the chest. Armstrong was also wearing white jeans and black-and-white tennis shoes. She had on a black face mask and may have had a yoga mat holder on her shoulders.
The task force is offering up to $5,000 for information that leads to Armstrong’s arrest. Filla urged anyone who might have the slightest detail to report it.
“Sometimes that information that you think may be very small may be the connecting piece of our puzzle in this challenging case that you have here before us,” Filla told KXAN-TV. “Unfortunately she is not in custody at this time, but she is slowly losing her freedom because she is having to stay under the radar, she is having to look over her shoulder.”
To report information about Armstrong’s whereabouts, call the U.S. Marshals Service at 1-800-336-0102 or the Capital Area Crime Stoppers at 1-800-893-8477.
