Woman found strangled in Ohio nearly 40 years ago identified

  Woman found strangled in Ohio nearly 40 years ago identified A woman found strangled to death in Ohio back in the 1980s has been identified thanks to new technology. Investigators in Miami County, just north of Dayton, announced Wednesday that they have made a positive ID on a woman found slain there nearly 40 years ago. The Miami County Sheriff’s Office said an unidentified woman who became known as Buckskin Doe because of the coat she had been wearing was found dead on Greenlee Road on April 24, 1981. They said she died by strangulation and blunt force trauma. Officials said they worked with the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children on the case, who created a facial reconstruction in 2016 of what she may have looked like. This week, investigators identified her as Marcia L. King, who was 21 at the time of her death. They said she was from Arkansas, but may have had ties to Ohio, Kentucky and Pennsylvania shortly before her murder. Now that she had been identified, the Sheriff's Office said it will move forward with a homicide investigation. Anyone who knew her or remembers coming into to contact with her is asked to call the Miami County Sheriff’s Office tip line at 937-440-3990 or leave tips by clicking here.

Anyone who sees Reiss is urged to call 911, and anyone with information on her whereabouts is urged to call the Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension or Florida authorities.

Riess has been on the run since at least late March, after David Riess's business partner called Dodge County authorities on March 23 to ask them to check on him. The partner said no one at work had seen David Riess in over two weeks.

Authorities found David Riess's body inside his home with multiple gunshots. They couldn't determine how long he had been dead, and investigators could not find his wife.

During the investigation, authorities learned that Lois Riess may have been at Diamond Jo Casino in Iowa. Authorities from Dodge County, the BCA and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation went to the casino, but Riess had already left. Authorities later learned she was in south Florida.
