Cops: Murderer on the Run Killed Lookalike to Steal ID

Riess became a suspect in Hutchinson's murder after authorities in Florida this week found a white 2005 Cadillac Escalade that Riess was believed to have been driving after her husband's death.

Riess is wanted in Florida for murder, grand theft of a motor vehicle and grand theft and criminal use of personal identification. "U.S. Marshals are actively involved in a national search for this risky fugitive".

A Florida woman from the Bradenton area was killed in Fort Myers Beach, and the suspect in her death may have stolen her identity to flee across the country, according to investigators.

A man told the News Press that the Marina Village manager was going room-to-room but stopped to asked him to open the door to the unit where Hutchinson was found. Troy Strohm said he helped her open the door and found the room's resident in the bathroom. The telephone conference came on the heels of a statement released by Rose on Thursday night in which the sheriff announced that Lois Riess would be charged with second-degree murder for the shooting death of her husband.

David Riess grew up in Rochester and opened a bait shop there after serving in the U.S. Navy, according to his obituary.

Riess has been on the run since at least late March, after David Riess's business partner called Dodge County authorities on March 23 to ask them to check on him. Deputies went to the worm farm on Hwy. They couldn't determine how long he had been dead, and investigators could not find his wife.

After that discovery, investigators tried to locate Lois Riess but were unsuccessful.

Oh baby! What a police call in Littleton
Officials with the Oswego Police Department are now investigating a retail theft incident that occurred on Wednesday. Police were alerted to two separate videos of men discharging firearms in public went viral on social media.

Investigators believe after David Riess was murdered, Lois Riess transferred almost $10,000 from her husband's business account into her personal account and forged his signature on three checks for an additional $11,000 from his personal account to her account. Her death was ruled a homicide by the medical examiner's office, Marceno said. She's also known to frequent casinos. "Everyone is kind of in shock about it".

Law enforcement also believe she stole over $20,000 from her deceased husband's business.

After her husband's death, Riess had been charged with theft in connection with several suspicious withdrawals totaling $11,000 from his bank account, police said.

Lois Riess is described as white, 5 feet 5 and 165 pounds, with brown eyes and blond hair.

Investigators consider Lois Riess armed and risky.

Anyone who has had recent contact with Lois Riess or who has any information on her whereabouts is urged to contact the BCA Tipline at 1-877-996-6222.

On March 24, the day after David Riess' body was found, investigators from the Dodge County Sheriff's Office and the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension joined with agents from the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation to see if Lois Riess was there, Rose said.
