Kaitlin Marie Armstrong was arrested in Costa Rica 43 days after the murder of star star Moriah Wilson.
A witness told Inside Edition that he found two passports and a receipt for a nose job in a safety deposit box at the hotel where she was arrested.
Authorities said Armstrong was taking yoga classes in Costa Rica, which helped them find her.
Homicide suspect Kaitlyn Marie Armstrong, Thursday arrested in Costa Rice in connection with the shooting of professional cyclist Moriah Wilson in Texas on May 11, taking yoga classes and using a pseudonym to hide her identity.
Brandon Filla, deputy US Marshal, said at a news conference that Armstrong, a yoga teacher, was trying to build a yoga career in Costa Rica. Her participation in yoga classes under a false name served as a paper trail leading authorities to her, VeloNews reports that.
“Once she got to Costa Rica, she didn’t really move much,” he said. “We knew she would be associated with some sort of yoga studio. When foreign officials arrived at that yoga studio, they found a handwritten login with the same alias she used when she traveled to Costa Rica.”
Armstrong was arrested at Don Jon’s Yoga Lodge in the small town of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, after a warrant for her arrest was issued more than a month earlier. Armstrong is charged with first degree murder in connection with Wilson’s death.
Armstrong will be deported and returned to the US, a statement from the US Marshals said:†
Armstrong came to Costa Rica with “a passport that did not match her identity, but the document was not forged,” Costa Rica’s Directorate General of Migration told CNN† While the identity of the passport was not revealed, a witness, Zachary Paulsen, told Inside Edition a second passport bearing Armstrong’s sister’s name was left in a safety deposit box at the hotel where she was arrested.
Paulsen told Inside Edition that he found a cosmetic surgery receipt worth $6,350 in the same locker. Filla also said Armstrong had a bandage over her nose and changed her hair, dyeing it brown and cutting it short.
Armstrong, who flew from Newark Liberty International Airport to San Jose, Costa Rica, on May 18, sold her jeep on May 13 and used the $12,200 in funds to support herself while in Costa Rica, Inside Edition reported.
