According to police, Requa said he fibbed about the homicide because he was afraid of being fired from his pizza delivery job at Mark's Pizzeria in Hamlin for being late for a delivery.
Corporal John Helfer of the Monroe County Sheriff's Department said he provided a descriptive story including details of the suspects, the car, the alleged victim, and what the killers said to him.
"You don't report something false," attested Cpl. Helfer. "You realize when you do that, you take a lot of recourses away, especially this type of incident he made up."
Requa is in Monroe County jail on $1,000 cash bail or $2,500 bond.
