Prisoners and officers who fled Alabama were caught after accident, officials said

The search for a corrections officer who disappeared last month with an inmate accused of murder in Alabama ended Monday after a police chase led to an accident in Indiana, officials said.

The officer, Vicky White, had been on the run with inmate, Casey White, since April 29 when he left the Lauderdale County Jail in Florence, Alabama for a courthouse appointment, which was later revealed to be a construction.

The vehicle rolled over and crashed Monday in Evansville, Indiana, more than 200 miles north of the prison, from where Casey White fled into Lauderdale County, following a chase with officers, U.S. Marshal Marty for the Northern District of Alabama Kelly said. , With the vehicle wrecked, Casey White surrendered to authorities, Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said at a news conference on Monday.

Vicky White was hospitalized with a “self-inflicted” gunshot wound, Kelly said on the phone Monday. Indiana’s Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding said at a news conference Monday that Vicky White’s injuries were “very serious.” Officials did not say where or when he shot himself.

“She’s in pretty serious shape,” Wedding said.

It is not clear who was driving the vehicle that White, who is not related, was travelling.

Singleton said Casey White was driving the vehicle; However, the wedding stated that Vicky White was driving a Cadillac which collided with a US Marshals vehicle.

“We found a dangerous man on the street today,” Singleton said of Casey White at the news conference. “He’s never going to see the light of day again.”

Kelly said the two were last seen on April 29 in Rogersville, Alabama, about 24 miles east of Florence.

They were described as a gold or copper-colored 2007 Ford SUV with Alabama plates, a vehicle officials said the pair had left on the side of a rural road in Williamson County, Tennessee, the same day they fled. .

Singleton said Ford was left with a bucket of paint on May 6. The pair “probably tried to hide it,” he said, “but they didn’t do a very good job of it.” Singleton said Vicky White’s patrol vehicle was abandoned at a Florence Square shopping center, where the couple changed vehicles.
