Gambling Grandma Murdered Her Husband, Met A Woman Who Looked Like Her, Then Murdered Her Too So She Could Steal Her Identity

Sometimes, the truth is truly stranger than fiction. When you hear about what 58-year-old Lois Riess did, you’re going to think it’s something straight out of a movie…

…But, it’s not. It’s her real life, and this is what she did.

Lois was married to 54-year-old David Riess. The couple lived together in Blooming Prairie, Minnesota.

Lois and David’s son Braden Riess told Inside Edition in an interview that his mom was just loving.

She loved David, she loved her children, she loved her grandchildren. She was a happily married mom.

But then, Lois got interested in gambling, and things got completely out of control from there.
