Federal authorities said on Thursday that they located a car belonging to a woman who has been on the run since fatally shooting her boyfriend’s love interest in Texas last month.
U.S. Marshals said they found Kaitlin Armstrong’s Jeep Grand Cherokee, which they learned was sold to a CarMax dealership in Austin on May 13 for $12,200. KVUE reported that Armstrong, 35, was issued a check a day after she was questioned by police regarding the death of cyclist Moriah Wilson, 24.
On May 11, Armstrong allegedly shot and killed Wilson, who was staying at a friend’s apartment in Austin at the time. Armstrong is believed to have killed Wilson upon learning she slept with her boyfriend.
Armstrong is believed to have flown out of Austin on May 14 and boarded a connecting flight to New York LaGuardia Airport.
According to reports, someone drove Armstrong to an airport in Newark, New Jersey, on May 18 — a day after a warrant was issued for her arrest. However, investigators found no outbound flight reservations listed under her name.
Reports indicated that Armstrong was last seen at Camp Haven compound in Livingston Manor, which is located in upstate New York.
A $21,000 reward is being offered for information leading to Armstrong’s capture.
