Police Searching For Southern Minn. Woman, Suspected In Husband's Murder

Sheriff MN Woman Accused of Killing Husband Murdering Florida Woman

Sheriff MN Woman Accused of Killing Husband Murdering Florida Woman

"We're involved in the search for her, and we're going to do a press conference with the Lee County Sheriff's Office", Kinsey said. Her body was found Monday in Fort Myers Beach.

A Minnesota woman who is wanted in connection with her husband's death is now charged with killing a Florida woman who resembled her and stealing the woman's identity as she eluded authorities, officials said Friday. Authorities say she has fled southwest Florida and may now be in the Corpus Christi, Texas area. Hutchinson's credit cards, personal identification and vehicle were all missing from her home.

Authorities don't believe the women knew each other, but that Riess killed Hutchinson earlier this week to assume her identity.

Riess is considered armed and risky. Riess may be using the identity of Pamela Sellers Hutchinson, but law enforcement agencies in Florida have not officially confirmed that Hutchinson was the murder victim.

On March 28 she was charged with one count of felony theft in Dodge County District Court, and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

During the conference, Rose said that investigators believe that the gun that was used to kill Hutchinson may have been the same gun used to kill David Riess, 54.

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

Throughout the three-week investigation, Sheriff Rose has said that Lois Riess was known to "frequent casinos". Anyone who's had any recent contact with Lois or any information on her whereabouts is urged to contact the Dodge County Sheriff's Office at 507-635-6200. Local, state and federal investigators in Florida have watched hundreds of hours of surveillance video in an attempt to track Lois Riess, and believe she is now somewhere near Corpus Christi, Texas.
