Fugitive yoga teacher who killed love rival may have had plastic surgery

A fugitive yoga teacher who is accused of shooting her love rival to death in Texas may have had plastic surgery whilst trying to evade capture, reports say.

Cops said Kaitlin Armstrong, 34, reportedly travelled to Costa Rica from the US on an active and valid passport before her arrest on Wednesday (June 29) after a manhunt since early May.

A witness who saw her arrest claimed she left two American passports in her locker, along with a $6,350 (£5,245) receipt for cosmetic surgery.

Zachary Paulsen, who had reportedly been staying in the same hostel as Armstrong, told Inside Edition: “She had a bandage on her nose and she had blood in her nostrils.”

He also said that documents left behind showed one passport with her own name on and another which reportedly had the name of Armstrong’s younger sister, 31-year-old Christine Elizabeth.

When Armstrong was arrested she had allegedly changed her appearance and had “cropped her hair (to) about shoulder length” and had “dyed it dark brown,” Deputy U.S. Marshal Brandon Filla told reporters.

The former yoga guru allegedly shot “love rival” Anna Moriah Wilson, 25, after a disagreement over Colin Strickland, who she had been romantically involved with.

Wilson, a “world-class” cyclist, had been out to dinner with Strickland before she was killed.

Although emergency services raced to perform CPR, tragic Wilson was declared dead at the scene.

Armstrong has been wanted by cops in connection with the brutal killing after an informant told them she was “furious and shaking with anger” over Wilson’s alleged romantic involvement with Strickland.

But the huge six-week manhunt – that saw officers probe several states and countries – finally came to an end when Armstrong was captured at a $50-a-night hostel in Santa Teresa Beach.

She is now in a cell in Costa Rica awaiting extradition to the United States on murder charges that could see her face a death penalty sentence.
