Austin police issued a homicide warrant on May 17 for Kaitlin Marie Armstrong, 35, who is suspected of killing Anna Wilson, 25, a Vermont native who was in Austin for a race.

Austin Police say Anna Moriah Wilson. 25, was shot several times on Wednesday, May 11 at a home in Austin. A friend had called 911 saying she found Wilson bleeding and unconscious. They performed CPR on her, but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Austin Police Department requested assistance from the Lone Star Fugitive Task Force – Austin Division to locate and apprehend Armstrong.

Wilson was from East Burke, Vermont according to her profile on the Dartmouth College athletic department website. Wilson was a 2019 graduate who competed in alpine after attending Burke Mountain Academy.

“Moriah received two letters in cycling, three in soccer, and four in alpine skiing at the Burke Mountain Academy and served as the captain of the soccer team during her senior season,” according to her athletic profile.

The Riverside School in Vermont, where Wilson attended school as a child, shared a statement from her parents Eric and Karen, and her brother Matt.

“We thank everyone for their expression of love and support for us in this difficult time. While the tragic loss of Moriah is unfathomable, at the same time we want everyone to join us in celebrating her life, accomplishments, and love for others....”We hope everyone feels her passion and support as they chase their own dreams. Her spirit will be there with you all, while training and on every race day. Always pushing tirelessly to reach her goals, we knew she was pursuing that which she loved. We will miss her terribly and know that all mourn her with us.”
