End of the road – Vicky White and Casey White

A horde of cash. A getaway car. An enormous world in which to hide.

It seemed inmate Casey White and his jailer Vicky White had plenty of advantages when they walked out of an Alabama jail on April 29, the corrections officer allegedly helping facilitate her charge’s escape.

For 11 days, the pair, who are not related, stayed “on the lam”, until a car chase Monday in Evansville, Indiana, ended with the arrest of Casey White, 38, and the death of Vicky White, 56, from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Their disappearance by then had become a national fascination, and a tip from the public helped track them down a mere five-hour drive from where they vanished.
