Missing Alabama inmate, corrections officer in custody in Indiana after chase
(CNN) — Alabama fugitive Casey White and corrections officer Vicky White are in custody, and she is hospitalized after shooting herself, authorities said late Monday afternoon.The pair were taken into custody after a chase in Evansville, Indiana, and their vehicle crashed, officials said.
The US Marshals told CNN that Vicky White’s injury was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
No law enforcement officers fired any shots, according to Lauderdale, Alabama, County Sheriff Rick Singleton.
A tip from the public led to the capture and arrest, he said. The tip came Sunday night, Singleton said.
The pair was located at a hotel and then a vehicle pursuit ensued, he said.
The sheriff said the Whites, who are not related, will be brought back to Alabama for arraignment.
Vicky White, who was an assistant director of corrections for Lauderdale County, took Casey White from the county jail on April 29, saying she was taking him for a mental health evaluation, which authorities learned later had never been scheduled. She then said she was going to get medical care after dropping the inmate off because she wasn’t feeling well.
This is the first time since White escaped a detention center in Lauderdale County, Alabama, with corrections officer Vicky White that he reportedly has been spotted.
Vicky White was not seen in the photos.
Investigators were notified on Sunday night that a 2006 Ford F-150 had been discovered at a car wash in Evansville, about 175 miles north of Williamson County, Tennessee, where the 2007 Ford Edge the pair had been traveling in was found abandoned.
The owner provided the images from a security camera, the US Marshals service said in a release.
