He was admitted to hospital with gunshot wounds to himself after being detained following a car chase in Evansville, Indiana, the U.S. Marshalls previously told CNN. His injuries were “very serious,” Marriage said at the time.
According to Sheriff Rick Singleton of Lauderdale County, Alabama, no law enforcement officers opened fire, and the pair – unrelated – escaped on April 29.
Before the chase continued, U.S. Marshal Matt Keeley said surveillance officers saw Vicky White leaving a hotel wearing a wig. Later, she and Casey White got into a car.
Authorities continued to monitor the pair until the end of the search for the vehicle, which ended when a U.S. Marshals Task Force member drove a vehicle into the Cadillac car driven by Cadillac Vicky White. The car broke down and rolled over, he said.
Authorities were able to remove the inmate from the wrecked car, but Vicky White was fitted inside with a gunshot wound to his head, Keeley said.
Casey White told officers, “I’m going to help my wife. She’s shot in the head. I did not do that.” Casey White and Vicky White are not married to Keeley to their knowledge.
The capture of the pair marks the end of an 11-day hunt that has garnered widespread national attention and hundreds of tips have come in from all corners of the country, which could eventually lead to the location and arrest of the fugitives.
That tip came Sunday night, Singleton said.
The couple said the marriage is believed to have been in Evansville since May 3. “It’s hard to believe they’ve been here so many days, but we’re lucky to see them today,” he said.
Singleton said whites believed to be unrelated but in a romantic relationship would be brought back to Alabama. Casey White, 38, faces previous murder charges. Vicky White, 56, was initially charged with permitting or facilitating first-degree escape and is now facing charges of forgery and identity theft.
“He will be in a cell alone,” Singleton said. “He will be in handcuffs and bandages while he is in that room. If he wants to sue me for violating his civil rights, let it be so. He will never come out of this prison again. I promise you that.”
Singleton said, “I’m always looking forward to this decision. I know we’ll catch them. It’s been a while.
Most escapes from the district jail are arbitrary, he said.
“This escape was apparently well planned and calculated,” Singleton said. “There was a lot of preparation for this. They had a lot of resources, they had the money, they had the vehicles, they had everything they needed to pull it off. That’s what made this so challenging in the last week and a half. “
Indiana car wash photos released
Earlier on Monday, US Marshalls Evansville released photos of who they believed was Casey White caught on surveillance camera at the car wash.
This is the first time he has been reported missing since he escaped from the Lauderdale County Detention Center with Vicky White.
The owner provided the images from the security camera, U.S. Marshals said in a statement.
The agency said the marshals went to Indiana on the tip.
He was rewarded with up to $ 15,000 for information leading to his capture and $ 10,000 for information leading to his capture of Vicky White.
New charges against Vicky White
In Alabama, the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Department said new charges have been filed against Vicky White in connection with Casey White’s escape.
Authorities say the 2007 Ford Edge was accused of using a pseudonym to buy a used vehicle to escape. The warrant shows that Vicky White Searched on fake and identity theft charge.
Vicky White, the assistant director of corrections in Lauderdale County, took Casey White out of the county jail on April 29, saying he was being taken for a mental assessment, which officials later learned was never planned. She then told the prisoner that she was going to get medical treatment because she was not feeling well.
Singleton said Monday that using Vicky White’s aliases could complicate the search.
“If she uses her own identity, it will be much easier for us to find her,” Singleton told CNN’s Piana Golotrica. “We know she used the wrong identification to buy a car in the county.”
After the capture, Singleton said he hoped Vicky White would survive.
“We do not want any wrongdoing on Vicky, but she has some answers,” he said. “I have all confidence in (her). She was a role model. I don’t know if we ever know.” What happened to change that.
The video shows the footage being well-prepared to escape, the sheriff says
Vicky White’s surveillance video footage taken before the exit showed the size of the product that escaped, Singleton said.
Investigators found footage of White shopping for men’s clothing at a department store and an “adult store,” Singleton said, adding that the prisoner had “apparently changed clothes”.
“It tells us it was very well planned and calculated,” Singleton said. “Apparently she planned this escape well up to a t.”
Investigators have previously released video footage showing Vicky White being in a quality hotel in Florence, where she stayed the night before her escape a week ago.
The patrol car carrying the officer and prisoner from the jail was dropped off in the shopping center parking lot. Vicky White’s prisons, radio and handcuffs were found inside. Authorities believe the couple went in a different vehicle: Vicky White’s 2007 Ford SUV he parked at the scene the night before.
Authorities believe the vehicle may have been suddenly stopped in the area due to an engine malfunction.
Vicky White and Casey White have known each other since at least 2020, the sheriff told CNN earlier this week.
She no longer works in the sheriff’s office, the office said, adding that although April 29 was the last day of her work, her retirement papers had not been finalized.
CNN’s Gen Selva, Joe Sutton and Jameel Lynch contributed to the report.
