A “killer” yoga teacher on the run after the alleged murder of a love rival has been spotted to have a $6,000 receipt for cosmetic surgery under a false name.
Kaitlin Armstrong, 34, is accused of shooting and shooting Anna Moriah “Mo” Wilson in Austin, Texas on May 11.
Armstrong reportedly went into a jealous rage after discovering 25-year-old cyclist Wilson was seeing her boyfriend Colin Strickland.
A search warrant against Armstrong’s belongings shows that she used her sister’s passport to evade authorities for more than a month after the shooting.
It contained a receipt for $6,360 for plastic surgery under the alias “Alisson Paige,” which News Nation reportedly took place on June 23 in Costa Rica.

The search warrant also found a boarding pass for a United flight from Newark to Costa Rica, clothing, small wallets, credit cards under various names including Strickland’s, an iPhone, currency from several countries, a driver’s license and a social security card.
She was charged with first-degree murder, and US marshals also obtained an illegal escape warrant to avoid prosecution.
Armstrong fled Texas in May and traveled from Newark Airport in New Jersey to Costa Rica before being arrested at a Santa Teresa beach hostel.
A federal judge has dismissed charges of unlawful flight against Armstrong, but she could face charges again in the future if prosecutors deem it necessary.
Armstrong’s attorneys have filed a motion for a summary trial and told the hearing that she “wants her day in court,” with her subpoena scheduled for October 19.
Armstrong was captured in Costa Rica, where she had dyed her hair and changed her appearance after 43 days on the run
The trial is expected to take place the following week, though a prosecutor claims Travis County has more than 100 homicide cases outstanding.
He told the hearing that Armstrong should waive her invalid support of attorney claims if the trial proceeds, adding, “I don’t know what privilege this particular defendant has to tell all these people who have been awaiting trial to prevent .
“I know Armstrong’s legal team hasn’t seen all of the evidence because we don’t have all of the evidence to give them.”
Her legal team questioned who vandalized Armstrong and Strickland’s home the night of Wilson’s death.
She is currently being held in the Travis County Jail on $3.5 million bail.
Armstrong reportedly told a man she met in Costa Rica that she went through a “traumatizing” breakup. He only realized the woman he had been hanging out with was the fugitive after seeing her post-surgery pictures released by police
Armstrong spent 43 days on the run before authorities located her and was extradited back to the US to face charges.
Police arrested the yoga teacher after an anonymous tip, and surveillance footage outside of Wilson’s home shows the yoga teacher’s car.
They used her open warrant for theft of services to question her about Wilson’s death after receiving an anonymous tip that she was enraged in January.
Armstrong’s car, a black Jeep Grand Cherokee, was seen driving past Wilson’s friends’ house where the gravel bike champion had stayed.
Search warrants have revealed that Armstrong visited a gun range with her sister before the murder and was paid $450,000 by Strickland.
In new court documents filed by her attorney in mid-August, Strickland repeatedly told police during the interview that Armstrong was not a jealous person and described her as the “least volatile” woman he had dated.
Armstrong’s attorney, Rick Cofer, filed new documents Aug. 17 to try to suppress evidence — claiming his client had not had her Miranda rights read to him before the interrogation.
He claims evidence was obtained with an “illegal arrest warrant” and accuses investigators of basing the arrest affidavit on “lies and reckless disregard for the truth.”
She was arrested on a separate misdemeanor charge the day after the murder and was falsely released by officers who believed the warrant was invalid.
Armstrong was never read out to her Miranda rights during the interview, and her attorneys now argue that any evidence from them is inadmissible.
