Escaped yoga teacher Kaitlin Armstrong returned to the US from Costa Rica

A Texas yoga teacher accused of gunning down a professional cyclist in a love triangle murder was brought back to the United States on Saturday, days after she was caught hiding in Costa Rica.

Fugitive Kaitlin Marie Armstrong, 34, had changed her appearance – and may even have had cosmetic surgery – after fleeing the country following the murder of 25-year-old Anna Moriah Wilson last month.

In an ABC 13 video, a masked Armstrong is seen handcuffed as she is escorted by US Marshals into a waiting vehicle at George Bush International Airport. She does not answer a reporter’s questions and hides her face from the news camera, the video shows.

She was taken to the Harris County Jail and will be transferred to Austin where she will face charges in Wilson’s murder, according to KXAN-TV.

Armstrong is accused of killing Wilson at an Austin home on May 11 after the cyclist spent the day with Armstrong’s friend Colin Strickland, also a professional cyclist. Strickland and Wilson had a romantic affair and met when Wilson came to town from San Francisco to prepare for a bike race, police officers said.

After Austin police questioned her about the murder, Armstrong sold her Jeep Grand Cherokee, which was seen on surveillance footage outside the scene. She took the $12,200 from the sale and flew to New York City, then days later she used someone else’s passport to fly from Newark, NJ to Costa Rica.

She was arrested Wednesday at a Santa Teresa Beach hostel with her hair dyed darker and cut to her shoulders, US Marshals Service officials said. She also had a bandage on her nose and bruises under her eyes. A witness told Inside Edition he found a $6,350 plastic surgery receipt that was left behind when she was taken away in handcuffs.

Armstrong’s bond is priced at $3.5 million and will be subject to GPS surveillance, KXAN reported.

The Wilson family shared a statement with the Post thanking Austin police officers, US Marshals and others for their “diligence” in finding Armstrong.

“We are relieved to know that this period of uncertainty is now behind us and we have faith that justice will prevail,” the statement said. “We would like to ask the media to respect our privacy at this time, as they have done for the past six weeks.”
