BEACON TRANSCRIPT – The Florida authorities are still trying to determine the whereabouts of Lois Reiss, the 56-year-old Bloomington Prairie resident, who gunned down two people since March. Nicknamed ‘Losing Streak Lois’ due to her gambling addition, the suspect might soon run out of resources and will be forced to kill again, authorities declared.
Losing Streak Lois Befriended Victim in a Fort Myers Bar
Based on the latest police report, Lois Reiss managed to coax her latest victim, 59-year-old Pamela Hutchinson, while at a Fort Myers bar. The establishment’s security camera shows Reiss having a couple of drinks with her victims and even telling each other jokes. Authorities believe that Reiss might have fed Pamela a fictitious life story in order to lure her into a trap.
Several days later, Pamela’s body would have been found in her house. The first responders declared the woman dead at the scene, with a single gunshot wound to her head.
A house search revealed that Reiss pillaged Pamela’s house, stealing her ID card, car keys, driver’s license, and several credit cards, which she would later use. The investigators believe that Reiss befriended and killed Hutchinson because the resemblance to her victim was uncanny.
For those of you unfamiliar with the Reiss case, the Minnesota woman also known by nickname Losing Streak Lois has been on the run since early March, when she gunned down her husband in their Bloomington Prairie home.
Carmine Maceno, the Lee County Undersheriff, declared that the woman is a “stone-cold killer” and that she uses her grandmother-like demeanor to befriend and kill people. So far, the authorities managed to determine that Losing Streak Lois was last seen somewhere in the Corpus Christi area, driving Hutchinson’s white Acura TL.
Police officials cautioned that the woman is armed, extremely dangerous, and should not be approached.
