Fleeing prisoner Casey White and former prison employee Vicky White were detained in Indiana today, according to Alabama sheriffs.
Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said two fugitives were captured near Evansville, Indiana, after pursuing the US Marshals Service.
According to sheriffs, Marshall was chasing a pickup driven by Casey White when the truck was wrecked and he surrendered. Vicky White was taken to the hospital.
“Casey White and Vicky White are in custody,” said Singleton. “It ended in a very long, stressful and rewarding week and a half. It ended in the way we knew. They are in custody.”
Since April 29, when Vicky White, assistant director of corrections in Lauderdale County prison, helped design Casey White’s escape awaiting trial in the capital murder case, the two have been in Manhunt nationwide. It was a target. Vicky White told her colleague that she would take the prisoner out of prison for a mental health assessment in court, but the two fled the area instead.
The vehicle was discovered today in Evansville, Indiana, after a US Marshal received information that a 2006 Ford F-150 pickup was found at a car wash in the town on Sunday, according to Marshall Services. Surveillance photos showed a man who looked a lot like Casey White getting out of the car at the car wash, officials said.
Investigators believe the pickup truck was stolen in Tennessee and then driven about 175 miles to Evansville, law enforcement officials told The Associated Press. Officials were unable to publicly discuss the details of the investigation and spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.
The Marshals Service said a warrant was issued on May 2 for Vicky Sue White indicting her for permitting or promoting her escape in her first degree. She has nothing to do with Casey White.
Federal and local law enforcement officials also learned that Casey White threatened to kill his ex-girlfriend and his sister in 2015, saying, “He asked police to kill him.” Marshall Service said. Investigators said they were in contact with them about the threat and were taking steps to ensure their safety.
