Investigators say Posey is spotted on surveillance video using her ATM card to withdraw money at an El Reno bank on June 16. The video is from around the same time the 911 call came in for the fire, according to OSBI.

Investigators say Posey also took Gibbins' cell phone which helped them track Posey to the El Reno ATM.

"It's a tough job, especially when you work something like this," says Calumet Police Chief Brian Huckabee who knew the victims.

"She was a good mother. She was a good friend to many. She was a good person," says Chief Huckabee about Amy Gibbins.
