AUSTIN – The U.S. Marshals Lone Star Fugitive Task Force is searching for an Austin woman accused of killing a professional cyclist who once dated her boyfriend.

Kaitlin Marie Armstrong, 35, is wanted for the shooting death of Anna “Mo” Wilson, 25, on May 11.

Austin police said they responded to a home in the 1700 block of Maple Avenue in East Austin after a friend found Wilson bleeding and unconscious from multiple gunshot wounds. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

ABC News reported that an arrest warrant affidavit states that Wilson was in Austin to compete in a race and was staying with a friend. Cycling magazine Velo said Wilson was a favorite to win the May 14 Gravel Locos race in Hico.


Earlier on the night she was murdered, Wilson met up with another professional cyclist, Colin Strickland, to go swimming, the affidavit states. Strickland told investigators that he and Armstrong had dated for about three years and currently live together but that he had a romantic relationship with Wilson during their brief breakup last fall.

The affidavit stated that Strickland was still in contact with Wilson who was listed under a fake name in his contacts. He told investigators he deleted text messages from Wilson “to prevent Armstrong from finding them.”

Text messages from the night Wilson was killed showed that Strickland lied to Armstrong about his whereabouts “to hide he was with Wilson throughout the evening,” ABC News quoted from the affidavit.

The affidavit stated that sources told investigators Armstrong found out about the romantic relationship between Strickland and Wilson and was “so angry Armstrong wanted to kill Wilson.”


Surveillance video showed Armstrong’s 2012 Jeep Cherokee stopping outside the residence where Wilson was killed on the night of her murder. On May 12, investigators asked her about that video evidence but Armstrong did not offer any explanation, the affidavit states.

Armstrong has since deleted her social media accounts and has not been seen or heard from since May 13, according to the affidavit.

She could still be driving her black Jeep Cherokee, plate #LDZ5608.

Anyone with information on Armstrong’s whereabouts is urged to contact the U.S. Marshals Service Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102 or submit a tip using the USMS Tips app.

Tips may also be sent to the Capital Area Crime Stoppers at 1-800-893-8477.

Strickland released a statement about Wilson’s murder expressing “torture about my proximity to this horrible crime.” Austin-Statesman reporter Tony Plohetski posted Strickland’s statement on Twitter.
