Banker who faked death talks prostitutes, cage fighting

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Aubrey Lee Price, the south Georgia banker now serving time in federal prison for embezzling millions of dollars, recently gave an interview to Esquire in which he revealed, among other things, hanging out with prostitutes, working for a South American drug kingpin, cage fighting, and faking his own death.

Price, who was on the run for 18 months before he was caught during a traffic stop in southeast Georgia told the magazine, "I used a number of different aliases. I was known to some people as 'Diesel.' Others as 'Gator.' I was 'Javier.' I was 'Jason.'" 

The former pastor who lived in Valdosta when he went on the run in 2012 admitted to making friends with prostitutes while staying at cheap motels, but remained "chaste."

As for his fugitive status he told Esquire, "I was disappointed in the reward for me-it was only $20,000! I was on the FBI's top ten list! Come on, put some money out there! I wanted to be number one."

In a plea deal Price was ordered to pay $51 million in restitution to former clients of Montgomery Bank & Trust.
