After 11 days on the run, Casey and Vicky White (no relation) have been captured in Indiana following a pursuit which ended in a crash.

Vicki White, the assistant director of corrections at LCSO, and Casey Cole White, an inmate charged with capital murder, went missing at 9:41 a.m. on Saturday, Apr. 30. Vicki White, the assistant director of corrections at Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office, told guards she was taking inmate Casey White to the county courthouse for a mental evaluation at around 9:30 a.m. She mentioned that she was not feeling well and expressed intentions to seek medical care after dropping the prisoner off.

According to Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton, Casey White was not scheduled for a mental evaluation and was never delivered to the courthouse. Likewise, Vicki White did not make it to the clinic where she had told coworkers she planned to seek care.

According to investigators, Vicki left the jail and drove straight to the parking lot where the patrol car would later be found. Surveillance cameras caught the pair exiting the lot in a 2007 rust-colored Ford Edge with minor damage to the rear left bumper.

In the weeks leading up to the escape, Vicky White had sold her home, withdrew $90,000 in cash from multiple banks, and purchased both a getaway vehicle and firearms.

The 56-year-old assistant director was among the most trusted employees and was looked at as a ‘mother figure’ by most of her co-workers. No one questioned Vicky’s story or even her decision to transport a convicted murderer alone. At 9:30 a.m. on Friday, Apr. 29 the pair exited the jail and drove away in Vicky’s patrol car.

On Monday, May 9, the two were found in Indiana and were arrested after a chase ended in a crash. According to Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding, Vicky White sustained a self-inflicted gunshot wound and was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Casey White managed minor injuries.
