Minnesota fugitive Lois Riess captured in Texas, officials say

New footage released of suspect in Ft. Myers Beach murder investigation

Lois Riess was sitting at a bar in a South Padre Island, Texas, restaurant Thursday evening when law enforcement authorities entered the restaurant, found the woman at the bar and placed her under arrest without incident, according to a statement released Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service in Texas. If Florida prosecutors find that the murder of Hutchinson, her lookalike, was premeditated, Riess could face the death penalty.

"I promised all along that Lois Riess would end up in a pair of handcuffs", said Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno. The white Acura she is suspected of stealing from Hutchinson was nearby and is being combed for evidence, they said.

George Higginbotham said he recognized Lois Riess when on Thursday she walked into Dirty Al's, the restaurant he manages on South Padre Island, a popular vacation spot in Texas.

She is being held at the South Padre Island Jail, while South Padre Island detectives are working with both Minnesota and Florida authorities concerning the outstanding felony charges. That puts her among offenders considered to be some of the country's most unsafe individuals.

Rosenstein told Trump he isn't a target of Mueller's investigation
Investigators shouldn't have to "start with the conclusion" that crimes were committed, she added. The president also expressed his hope that "we're coming to the end" of the investigation.

They'd been trying to track her down for the past month.

"She turned around and walked out", Higginbotham said.

It was not immediately clear Friday when Riess next would be back in either state, Marceno said during a news conference.

Before traveling to Florida, Riess is believed to have cashed over $10,000 in forged checks from her husband and her business.

The Jammu's Kathua and Uttar Pradesh's Unnao rape cases have led anger and outrages against the sexual violence against women. The Minister of State in the Prime Minister's Office, however, refused to answer any further questions and left.

The U.S. Border Patrol had been put on alert and Mexican authorities were notified to be on the watch for anybody trying to use Hutchinson's ID, said Lee County Sheriff's Office spokesman Tony Schall.

Riess is believed to have killed 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson sometime between April 5 and April 9 in a condo in Fort Myers Beach, Florida, according to Deputy US Marshal John Kinsey and a marshals service news release. She could be facing a judge in Texas within the next 48 hours.

During that week, Tess Koster said, she was petrified, thinking Riess might return to her home. "Furthermore, no mater where she went, no matter where she hid, we were going to get her".

"This is the first time in my career that I've seen someone steal someone's identity and target them for the way they look, in order to murder them", Marceno said.
Riess allegedly killed Hutchinson to steal her identity, as both women were close in age and had light blonde hair.
