Bud Pritchett did admit to trying to use Estel Singleton's ATM card to get money, but says he found the card in the parking lot of a local grocery store NOT on the victim's body.
But a state police agent tells a different story.
Jerry Humphreys says Pritchett admitted shooting Singleton just days after the victim's body was found at the Ironto rest area.

The alleged statement was made after state police brought Pritchett in for questioning after a video camera captured Prithcett trying to use the victim's ATM card.
