    Colin's statement about the crime

    Colin spoke of "the regret and torture" he felt "about [his] proximity to this horrible crime," in a statement released to local media.

    "I am sorry, and I simply cannot make sense of this unfathomable tragedy," he continued.

    "As a point of clarification to facts previously reported, Moriah Wilson and I had a brief romantic relationship from late October-early November 2021 that spanned a week or so while Wilson was visiting Austin.

    "At the time, she and I had both recently ended relationships."

    What Colin Strickland told police

    On the night of Moriah's alleged murder, Colin and the fellow cyclist met up to go swimming together.

    He told police he dropped Moriah off at the apartment at around 8.30pm local time.

    Moriah was pronounced dead just hours later, at around 10pm.

    Colin denies any involvement with her death, and police have not pressed any charges.

    Evidence points to Kaitlin

    The police also say security camera footage shows Kaitlin's SUV driving past the apartment Moriah was staying in at the time of her death.

    Authorities allege Kaitlin nodded in agreement when detectives told her the found camera footage did not look good for her.

    Police said Kaitlin could not explain why her car was in the area when Moriah was reportedly murdered.

    Details of the alleged murder

    Shortly before her body was found, Moriah had flown into Texas to participate in the Gravel Locos, a 150-mile bike race.

    While in town, she and Colin agreed to meet up and hang out.

    Police believe Kaitlin may have located the two via a cycling app known as Strava, where locations are enabled.

    According to police, Kaitlin allegedly followed Moriah to the apartment she was staying in and may have fired a 9mm handgun – the same gun Colin told authorities they keep in their home.
