Evidence in Riess murder case includes box cutters, guns
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Box cutters, a roll of duct tape, rubber gloves and two handguns are among the items collected as evidence in the case of a Minnesota woman accused of killing her Florida look-alike.
Investigators in Florida released hundreds of photos and a list of evidence Wednesday in their case against Lois Riess . The 56-year-old Blooming Prairie, Minnesota, woman is charged with murder in the April death of Pamela Hutchinson in a Fort Myers Beach condo. Prosecutors have said they intend to seek the death penalty.
Riess is also accused of killing her husband, David Riess, before leading authorities on a manhunt. Murder charges in Minnesota are pending.
The Star Tribune reports the list of evidence also includes maps and written directions from Florida to Texas, where Riess was caught after Hutchinson’s death.
