Alabama Corrections officer dies from Gunshot Wound

Former Alabama corrections officer named Vicky White dies of injuries from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. She and the escaped inmate Casey White were arrested in Indiana earlier this Monday after a police chase. 

No police officers fired shots, as per Sheriff Rick Singleton of Lauderdale County, Alabama, where the pair – – who are not related – – escaped on April 29.

Before the pursuit resulted, officials leading reconnaissance spotted Vicky White leaving an inn with a hairpiece on, as US Marshal Matt Keely indicated. Then, she and Casey White moved into a vehicle and drove away.

Authorities kept on watching them until a vehicle pursuit started, finishing when a US Marshals team part drove the vehicle into the Cadillac the pair were in. The vehicle was destroyed and turned over, he said. Casey White was driving the vehicle, as per the US Marshals, however, Wedding had prior told reporters Vicky White was the driver.

Officials had the option to get out the prisoner from the destroyed vehicle, yet Vicky White was stuck inside with a wound to her head, Keely said. 

Casey White apparently advised officials to help “his significant other” who had shot herself in the head, as indicated by Keely, and let them know he didn’t get it done. Keely told their insight Casey White and Vicky White are not married.

The pair’s catch concluded an 11-day manhunt that acquired far-reaching public consideration and saw many tips flood in from all sides of the nation, including one that eventually lead to the area and capture of the escapees.

That tip came Sunday night, Singleton said. Wedding said the couple were accepted to have been in Evansville since May 3. “It’s difficult to accept they’ve been here that numerous days, yet we’re fortunate that we coincidentally found them today,” he said.

Singleton said Casey White, 38, will be taken back to Alabama. The prisoner comes up against past murder indictments. Vicky White, 56, was first accused of allowing or working with escape in the principal degree and was later confronting extra falsification and fraud charges.

“He will be in a cell without anyone else,” Singleton said. “He will remain in binds and shackles while he’s in that cell and if he has any desire to sue me for abusing his social liberties, so be it. He’s not escaping this prison once more. I’ll guarantee you that.”

Singleton said, “I’ve generally anticipated this result. I realized we would get them. It was inevitable.”

Most escapes from a district prison are unconstrained, he said.

“This departure was clearly very much arranged and determined,” Singleton said. “A great deal of arrangements went into this. They had a lot of assets, had cash, had vehicles, had all that they expected to pull this off, and that made this last week and a half so testing. We were beginning from ground zero, and not just that, we began – – they got a six-hour head start on us.”

Prior Monday, US Marshals delivered photographs of who they accept was Casey White gotten on a reconnaissance camera at an Evansville vehicle wash.

It was the initial occasion when he got away from a Lauderdale County detainment focus with Vicky White that he was accounted for seen.

Agents were advised Sunday night that a 2006 Ford F-150 had been found at a vehicle wash in Evansville, around 175 miles north of Williamson County, Tennessee, where the 2007 Ford Edge the pair had been going in was seen as deserted.

US Marshals said that the proprietor gave the pictures from a surveillance camera in a delivery. Marshals went to Indiana circling back to the tip, the office said.
