Almost two weeks ago, a capital murder suspect escaped from an Alabama jail with the help of a female corrections officer. The pair was finally captured in Indiana after a vehicle chase that ended in a wreck.
Casey White, 38, and Vicky White, 56, are not related despite having the same last name. Vicky was a corrections officer at the prison where Casey was being held. The pair have known each other since 2020 and are assumed to have been romantically involved.
On the day of the escape, Vicky claimed she was taking Casey for a mental health evaluation at the courthouse. It was later discovered that there was no evaluation scheduled for that day, but due to Vicky’s good standing among her coworkers, no one thought to doubt her.
In fact, Vicky had the reputation of being an “exemplary employee” with an “unblemished record.”

In a press conference following their capture, Singleton said, “This has ended a very long and stressful and challenging week-and-a-half. It ended the way that we knew it would. They are in custody.”
“We got a dangerous man off the streets today. He’s never gonna see the light of day again. That’s a good thing.”
Regarding Vicky, who was being given emergency treatment in the hospital for her self-inflicted gunshot wound, Singleton said, “I hope she survives this. She has some answers to give.”
Shortly after this, around 7 pm, Vicky died from her injuries.
