Lois Riess, aka Losing Streak Lois, is a chameleon and convicted killer grandmother with a gambling problem.
She murdered her husband, 54-year-old Dave Riess, shot him multiple times in the chest. His body was found in their blooming prairie bathroom in Minnesota on March 24th 2018.
Then Lois traveled from Blooming Prairie, Minnesota to Snug Harbor Florida near Fort Myers. There she befriended a woman who looked like her twin. She killed her too with the same gun she used on her husband, and then assumed her identity. Lois was the subject of a nationwide manhunt soon after her husband was found shot at the couple’s Blooming Prairie worm farm.

Find out the ultimate fate of Losing Streak Lois on this episode of Full Rigor, a Florida true crime podcast with Karen Curtis.
