US Marshals are offering a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of a yoga instructor who allegedly killed a professional cyclist in a fit of jealous rage.
Kaitlin Armstrong, 34, is wanted in Austin, Texas for first degree murder in the shooting death of 25-year-old professional cyclist Moriah Wilson. Authorities said Armstrong shot the cyclist for allegedly having an affair with her boyfriend, professional cyclist Colin Strickland.
An arrest warrant for Armstrong was issued May 17. According to US Marshals, the suspect was dropped off at Newark Airport in New Jersey on May 18, just one day after Austin cops obtained a warrant for her arrest.

“She’s a first time offender,” Deputy US Marshal Brandon Filla said. “She does this and goes to the extent to where we can’t locate her, she goes to the extreme. Someone like that who’s willing on the first time to go above and beyond, you don’t know what they’re capable of.”
As of Friday, she remained at large and was considered armed and dangerous. Meanwhile, Strickland is reportedly cooperating with the investigation.
