A United States 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.

On April 5, the two women were recorded on surveillance camera at the Smokin' Oyster Brewery in Fort Myers, Fla.

Lois Riess, described as a 5-foot-5, 165-pound woman with three children and at least one grandchild, has been accused of fatally shooting her husband, David, in Minnesota last month and fleeing to Florida.

Florida authorities said late last week that they believed Riess most recently was in the Corpus Christi area in Texas, possibly driving a vehicle she stole from Hutchinson, whose body was found April 9.

Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno says while Riess "may look like anyone's mother or grandmother, she's an absolute cold-blooded murderer". Riess is also wanted in the March death of her husband, David Riess.

Officials believe she used the same gun to kill 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson, of Bradenton, Florida.

Anyone who has information on Riess' whereabouts is urged to contact the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension tip-line at 1-877-996-6222.

She then allegedly went on the lam, stopping at Diamond Joe's Casino in Iowa to feed her gambling habit. "That's really the only thing that could resonate with my's just evil that flowed through".

Marceno said Hutchinson's white 2005 Acura TL had been spotted in Louisiana and around Corpus Christi in the days after Hutchinson's body was found.

On the "Today" broadcast, Marceno said that Riess will run out of money and could possibly kill again.
