Texas murder suspect Armstrong had his sister’s passport in Costa Rica, ‘receipt’ for plastic surgery: report

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Kaitlin Armstrong, the Texas woman charged in the love triangle of murdering one of the country’s top gravel bikers, allegedly had her sister’s passport in her possession when law enforcement caught her on an idyllic beach from Costa Rica on Wednesday.

Armstrong, 34, is accused of shooting dead Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson, a 25-year-old professional cyclist who was romantically involved with Armstrong’s boyfriend, Colin Strickland. Like Wilson, Strickland, 35, is also a professional cyclist. He declined multiple requests for comment.

Moments after Strickland dropped Wilson off at her friend’s Austin apartment after a May 11 party, Armstrong’s SUV showed up on a neighbor’s surveillance video, according to an arrest warrant. Authorities later said they found Wilson inside with multiple bullet wounds and spent casings that had been fired from a handgun, which police later recovered from the home Armstrong shared with Strickland.

The alleged killer spent 43 days on the run before authorities tracked her down to a hostel by the Pacific Ocean.

Harris County jail records show Armstrong arrived Sunday, charged with murder in Wilson’s death and theft of services for allegedly exhausting her tab at a Botox clinic years ago.

Her bond has been set at more than $3.5 million and she also faces a federal charge of unlawfully fleeing to avoid prosecution.

Authorities nabbed the alleged Botox bandit, who is also a yoga instructor, last week at a beachside hostel in Santa Teresa, a remote haven for surfers, yogis and backpackers.

According to footage obtained by Inside Edition, which sent a news crew to Costa Rica after the bust, she arrived there with two passports — hers and her sister’s. The documents were reportedly left in a locker after his arrest.

Last Friday, Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla told Fox News Digital that Armstrong allegedly fraudulently used someone else’s valid passport to fly from Newark Liberty International Airport to San Jose, Costa Rica on 18 may. He refused to say which passport she used.

Images on social media show the sisters shared a striking resemblance and appeared to have been close.

Armstrong also visited his sister at an upstate New York campsite before news of Wilson’s murder made national headlines, according to a man there who told Fox News Digital on last month that she had been back and forth before law enforcement arrived on her trail.

His sister, Christine Armstrong, did not respond to messages seeking comment – nor has she been charged with a crime.

Inside Edition also found an alleged cosmetic surgery receipt, written as a bill of sale and addressed to “whom it may concern” and claiming she paid “$6,350 in cash.”

The outpatient and cosmetic surgery clinic named in the document told Fox News Digital on Monday, “We don’t have that information.”

Marshals said last week they arrested Armstrong with a bandage over her face and that she claimed to have injured herself in a surfing accident.

However, her latest booking photo in Harris County, Texas appears to show her with a narrower nose. She also dyed her hair and cut it to her shoulders, authorities said.
