  • Texas Authorities Find 2 Pistols in Motel Room, Riess Held without Bond

A county sheriff in Minnesota says his office is preparing charges to build what he calls "the strongest case" against a woman suspected in the deaths of her husband and a woman in Florida whom she resembled.

'She had a smile on her face like a vacationer, not really anxious that people were looking for her. Authorities from both states planned to interview Riess about the two homicides.

Fifty-six-year-old Lois Riess will be held in South Texas about Florida charges which include murder using a firearm in the Cameron County jail.

"He asked her how many people and she said, 'Oh, no, I'm just looking at the menu, ' and I'm looking at it and I go, 'I know this lady, '" said George Higgenbottom, manager of the restaurant Dirty Al's.

South Padre Island police say Reiss could be extradited to Florida as soon as next week. It was there authorities believe that she killed Pamela Hutchinson, targeting her so she could steal her identity and run again.


Riess was reportedly arrested about 30 minutes nearby by US marshals.

While details still have to be worked out it appears that Florida will try her first. "She was enjoying herself".

Marshals said Riess let her guard down when entering the establishment.

Surveillance videos released just hours before Riess was caught showed her walking away from the Marina Village in Fort Meyers Beach soon after she allegedly killed Hutchinson.

The US Marshals Service offered a reward of up to $5,000 for information leading to her arrest and put up electronic billboards in at least five states including Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California and Nevada.
