Lois Riess, the alleged ‘Killer Grandma’, was arrested Thursday in Texas near the Mexican border, according to KTRK. Police believe Riess killed her husband David Riess in Minnesota, and then killed a ‘lookalike’ woman in Florida and then stole the dead woman’s identity.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, Surveillance footage allegedly shows Riess talking with victim Pamela Hutchison, 59, at a bar in Florida. Police believe Riess targeted Hutchison so she could steal the woman’s identity.
Following the murder, Riess was spotted wearing one of Hutchison’s favorite hats.
“For me to see this vile woman wearing my cousin’s hat after she murdered her was heartbreaking,” Hutchison’s cousin Lohr Stoops told the news outlet.
This is a breaking news story. CrimeOnline will have more updates as they develop.
Nancy Grace followed Riess’s deadly path on a recent episode of her podcast and radio show ‘Crime Stories with Nancy Grace’:
