The shooting death of a man in rural Dodge County had authorities in southeastern Minnesota on the hunt Monday for the victim's 56-year-old wife and the family's Cadillac Escalade.
The victim was identified late Monday as David Riess, 54, of rural Blooming Prairie, according to the Sheriff's Office and the state Bureau of Criminal Apprehension. He died of multiple gunshot wounds.
His body was found Friday in a house on the farm property.
The BCA said the man's wife, Lois Ann Riess, is being sought as a "person of interest" in the case. Authorities said she is probably armed with a weapon. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call 911 but is warned not to approach her. Authorities said she likes to frequent casinos.
Riess is described as white, 5 foot 5 and 165 pounds with brown eyes and blond hair, which is now lighter than in the photo that authorities have circulated over social media and through news outlets.
The Sheriff's Office is also trying to find a family vehicle: a white 2005 Cadillac Escalade, with Minnesota license plate 864 LAE.
Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Riess or the vehicle is urged to call the Sheriff's Office at 1-507-635-6200.
