Minnesota 'grandma killer' still on the loose, last seen in Texas

A USA woman who "smiles and looks like anyone's mother or grandmother" has been accused by police of befriending another woman so that she could murder her and steal her identity.

U.S. Marshals released surveillance video Monday which shows 56-year-old Lois Reiss at a Fort Myers Beach Restaurant on April 5. She was last known to be in the Corpus Christi, Texas area and is believed to be driving Hutchinson's white Acura TL with Florida license plate Y37TAA.

"Further investigation revealed that Ms. Hutchinson was targeted due to the similarities in their appearance", Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno said at a press conference Friday.

Officers did, and found him dead of gunshot wounds at the worm farm on March 23, the sheriff of Dodge County said. Her identification, credit cards and vehicle keys were gone.

Riess is believed to have befriended Hutchinson in Fort Myers, Fla., before killing her and stealing her identity.

Police believe Riess killed both victims with the same gun, and may still have it.

Anyone with information on Riess' whereabouts is asked to call the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension Tip Line at 1-877-996-6222. They say her current location is unknown.

She then allegedly went on the lam, stopping at Diamond Joe's Casino in Iowa to feed her gambling habit.

The obituary for David Riess was published last week, and mentioned his children and grandchildren, but not wife. Hutchinson's purse was found in disarray and her keys were missing.

"It was just evil", Jeffreys said.

Authorities warned that, when she runs out of resources, she may kill again.
