Kaitlin Armstrong, the yoga teacher who murdered a pro-cyclist in a jealous rage last month has finally been captured after 6 weeks on the run.
Armstrong, 34, was captured in Costa Rica after 43 days on the run.
“The Marshals Service elevated the Kaitlin Armstrong investigation to major case status early in this investigation, which likely played a key role in her capture after a 43-day run,” said US Marshal for the Western District of Texas Susan Pamerleau. “This is an example of combining the resources of local, state, federal and international authorities to apprehend a violent fugitive, bring an end to that run and hopefully a sense of closure to the victim’s family.”
