It is possible that it will take several days or possibly a few weeks before fugitive Texas yoga instructor Kaitlin Marie Armstrong is extradited back to the United States to face charges related to the shooting death of a professional bicyclist during a rage-fueled love triangle murder.
According to a new story, the Texas yoga instructor who is charged with the love-triangle murder of a professional cyclist had a plastic surgery receipt in her possession when she was apprehended in Costa Rica.
During her escape, fugitive Kaitlin Marie Armstrong left behind two passports and a receipt for cosmetic surgery in the amount of $6,350. A witness told Inside Edition that the receipt was in “another name.” Armstrong was apprehended on Wednesday at a hostel in Santa Teresa Beach.
The witness stated that it appeared as though something had happened to the victim’s face.
According to Zachary Paulsen, who was interviewed by the site, “[She had] a bandage on her nose and she had blood in her nostrils.”
Armstrong had bruising behind her eyes and a bandage on her nose when she was discovered, according to US federal authorities.
She had also coloured her hair a darker shade of brown and cut it shorter.
According to what Paulsen said to Inside Edition, “She was just asking about how to move around for less money, and then the police came.”
According to Inside Edition, Armstrong was allegedly residing at Don Jon’s Surf and Yoga Lodge under a different name and purportedly studying new forms of yoga in order to perhaps become an instructor once more.
Following Armstrong’s detention, Paulsen claimed to have discovered items in a locker, among them her passport, Christine’s sister’s passport, and the receipt for her cosmetic operation.
Armstrong boarded a flight out of Newark, New Jersey, to Costa Rica last month using a legitimate, active passport belonging to someone with “extremely similar physical descriptors,” according to deputy US Marshal Brandon Filla. He made no mention of Armstrong’s owner or how Armstrong obtained the passport.
Cops think that on May 11, in a jealous rage over the cyclist’s relationship with Armstrong’s boyfriend, Armstrong shot 25-year-old Anna Moriah Wilson many times in a home in Austin. Wilson and Colin Strickland, a professional cyclist and ex-fling partner of Armstrong’s, had just finished a day of swimming and dining together.
Wilson, who was visiting from San Francisco for a race, eventually admitted to police that he had dated Strickland last fall while he was estranged from Armstrong. On the night of Wilson’s murder, Strickland dropped her off at her friend’s house and was captured on surveillance camera leaving in Armstrong’s black Jeep Grand Cherokee, according to police.
After being questioned by police in Texas over the murder, the yoga instructor departed the state. According to the authorities, she flew to New York City and was later dropped off at Newark Liberty International Airport, where she then boarded a trip to Costa Rica from there.
Within the following 30 days, Armstrong will be released from Costa Rica and brought back to the US to stand trial.
