Vicky White news update: Casey White and prison guard staged ‘dry run’ of escape, police say

Related video: Surveillance footage of Alabama corrections officer in hotel before vanishing with inmate

Dramatic police footage captured the moment nationwide manhunt ended in Indiana earlier this week after capital murder suspect Casey White was apprehended and his prison guard lover Vicky White’s body was pulled from a wrecked vehicle.

Ms White, the 56-year-old corrections officer and White, an inmate serving a 75-year sentence for attempted murder, ended with a car chase and crash in Evansville. She died from what a coroner ruled to be a self-inflicted shooting wound.

White was taken into custody and told officers to help his “wife”, alleged reports. The pair were said to have been in a romantic relationship for about two years before breaking out of prison more than 10 days ago, and were unmarried.

A chilling 911 call released following the crash revealed Ms White telling the capital murder suspect: “Let’s get out and run”. She also appeared to blame White for wanting to stay “at af****** motel” moments before their crash.

An investigation into the ordeal is still ongoing as police face mounting questions over how the fugitives evaded capture for over a week.

Vicky White reportedly told a former inmate visiting the prison to ‘stay on the straight and narrow’ on the day she helped Casey White escape

Vicky White, the Alabama corrections officer who helped capital murder suspect Casey White escape prison, reportedly told a former inmate to “stay on the straight and narrow” during a visit that occurred just hours before she became a fugitive.

Deborah Burbank, who describes herself as a “lifelong friend” of Ms White’s, told the daily mail that her daughter — who was formerly incarcerated — went back to visit the prison and ran into the corrections officer.

“Vicky spoke to my daughter and said how proud she was of her for getting her life back on track. She said how important it was to stay on the straight and narrow,” Ms Burbank said. “We’ve spoken about it since, and she’s thought about it, but she says Vicky was just like she always was. She gave no indication that anything was up. We’re all just shook.’

Casey White has a long history of run-ins with the law…

Casey White is behind bars in Alabama, where he was serving a 75-year prison sentence for a 2017 crime spree involving attempted murder and the shooting of a dog before breaking free with corrections officer Vicky White.

He is currently awaiting trial for the 2015 stabbing murder of a 58-year-old mother-of-two, Connie Ridgeway, and has pleaded not guilty in the case after initially pleading, citing mental illness.

The 38-year-old has a long rap sheet going back two decades, when he was arrested over a domestic violence incident involving his own mother in 2006, writes Rachel Sharp:

Investigation into ex-girlfriend’s death reopened

Police have reportedly reopened an investigation into the death of escaped Alabama inmate Casey Cole White’s former girlfriend, Christy Shelton.

The 31-year-old died on 1 February 2008 after she was shot in the chest by a sawed-off shotgun inside an Alabama home belonging to White’s mother.

White, who was in a relationship with Ms Shelton at the time, was cleared as a suspect and the case was closed after her death was ruled a suicide.

Her family have always doubted that finding however, and as Rachel Sharp reports, recent events have led to the investigation being reopened:
