Riess was seen in surveillance video smiling and talking with the woman, Pamela Hutchinson, who police said she'd later kill so she could steal her identity.

Another set of surveillance videos was released by the Lee County Sheriff's Office on Tuesday which shows a woman, identified as Riess, stopping at the Hilton hotel in Ocala, Florida.

A nationwide search for Minnesota a woman accused of killing both her husband and another woman.

Authorities says Reiss left southwest Florida and traveled to corpus Christi, Texas.

"She smiles and looks like anyone's mother or grandmother", Lee County Undersheriff Carmine Marceno told NBC on Sunday night.

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

Authorities also have said they suspect that after David Riess was killed, his wife transferred almost $10,000 from his business account into his personal account and then forged his signature on three checks to herself for $11,000.

Local authorities have dubbed Riess "Losing Streak Lois" because she is known to have a gambling addiction and often frequents casinos, according to the U.S. Marshals.

She had left Iowa by the time police tracked her there in late March, the BCA said. "That's really the only thing that could resonate with my system.it's just evil that flowed through".

Deputies say Riess is now wanted for the murder of Hutchinson, who was found dead in her home last week.

"I suspect Riess as some point in time with have no resources and she will become more desperate", Marceno said, "and may kill again".
