Minn. woman suspected in 2 murders arrested in Texas

Pamela Hutchinson

Two officers with the U.S. Marshals Service arrested Riess at about 8:25 p.m.in South Padre Island, while she was sitting alone at a restaurant, according to a KSTP-TV report.

Weeks later, in Fort Myers, Fla., authorities believe she shot and killed a second person, 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson. Authorities believe Riess targeted Hutchinson due to their similar appearance and killed her to assume her identity.

Lois Riess is considered armed and risky, and authorities say she should not be approached. Lois stole Pamela's license, credit card, and 2005 white Acura with Florida license plate Y37TAA.

The Dodge County Sheriff's Office has released a surveillance video obtained by investigators from the Kum and Go gas station in Northwood, Iowa in hopes of triggering leads to Lois Riess' whereabouts. "We are working as expeditiously as possible to bring her back to Lee County to face murder charges".

A surveillance video released earlier this week showed a smiling Riess sitting at the Smokin' Oyster Brewery on Fort Myers Beach in Florida on April 5 as she chatted to Hutchinson - her second victim.

Hutchinson was found shot to death in her condo on April 9, but she was likely killed a few days prior. Hutchinson's ID, credit cards and vehicle were missing from her home.

It is not clear where, when or how Riess met Hutchinson, but investigators believe that Riess sought out Hutchinson due to their similarities in looks.

She has a gambling addiction and is known to frequent casinos. Our suspect loves to gamble, she loves casinos, she could be anywhere at anytime, ' Marceno said.

Riess should be considered armed and unsafe and should not be approached.

Riess "smiles and looks like anyone's mother or grandmother, and yet she's calculated, she's targeted and she's an absolute cold-blooded killer", Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno told NBC's "Today" on Monday.

Authorities say that Riess is considered armed and unsafe and that anyone with information about Riess should contact your local U.S. Marshals Service office, State or Local Law Enforcement Agency or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780 TIPS.
