Police Looking For Dating App Predator After Wisconsin Woman Died While On Date With Him

Milwaukee, WI – Police are looking for an alleged dating app predator who was see with a woman in a bar in South Milwaukee shortly before she lost consciousness and died.

South Milwaukee police said that 55-year-old Raina Reighns was seen in Scotty’s Bar and Pizza several times on Nov. 17 with 52-year-old Timothy Olson, WDJT reported.

“I was shocked because I saw her hours before and I knew it was out of the ordinary because she was here at my starting of the shift, which was at one and not at nighttime,” Scotty’s bartender, Nicole Fabian, recalled.

Later that night, Reighns and Olson went together to another bar, Powers on 10th, WISN reported.

Police said that shortly after they arrived, Reighns suffered a medical emergency.

Sam Anderson, the bartender at Powers on 10th, said Reighns and Olson were only in the bar for a couple of minutes and hadn’t even taken the first sip from their drinks when the woman lost consciousness, WISN reported.

“As soon as she was down, I called 911,” Anderson said. “The man she was with yelled that he was going to go get an inhaler.”

He said Olson left the bar as if to obtain medication for his date but never returned, WISN reported.

South Milwaukee police said Reighns was transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital where she later died.

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office has not yet released a cause of death for the woman and said they are waiting to receive toxicology results from the lab before making a determination, WISN reported.

This is not the first time that Olson has been a suspect in a crime.

He was fugitive at the time of Reighns death, WISN reported.

The Racine Police Department had put out multiple alerts warning women about Olson, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

The warnings said he had been using dating apps to meet women, then drugging them and stealing their credit and debit cards, WISN reported.

One victim told police that Olson had used the alias “Tim Wilson” on Match.com and she had agreed to meet up with him at a bar, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

The woman told police that she hadn’t had much alcohol during the evening but didn’t remember her ride home.

She later discovered that $800 was missing from her bank accounts, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Security video from four different ATMs in the area showed Olson using the victim’s debit card to take out $200 four separate times that night, according to police.

At the time Reighns suffered a medical emergency while on a date with him, Olson was wanted by U.S. Marshals on warrants for a slew of financial felonies, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Authorities suspect there are more victims in the area and have asked anyone with information about the case to contact the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) task force via Racine Police Detective Contreras at (414) 378-6734, WISN reported.
