Related video: Surveillance footage of Alabama corrections officer in hotel before vanishing with inmate
Dramatic police footage captured the moment capital murder suspect Casey Cole White was apprehended in Indiana and his prison guard lover Vicky White’s body was pulled from their crashed vehicle.
A 10-day nationwide manhunt for Ms White, a 56-year-old corrections officer from Alabama, and White, an inmate serving a 75-year sentence and awaiting trial for murder, ended on Monday evening with a car chase and crash in Evansville. . Ms White died hours from what a coroner ruled to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and White was taken into custody.
As he was handcuffed, White allegedly told officers to help his “wife” and insisted he did not shoot her. The pair were said to have been in a romantic relationship for about two years but police say they were not married.
Meanwhile, Ms White’s last words were revealed in a chilling 911 call where she said “let’s get out and run” and blames White for wanting to stay “at af ****** motel” moments before apparently shooting herself in the head.
An investigation into the ordeal is still ongoing as police face mounting questions over how the fugitives evaded capture for over a week.
Fugitive couple was in Evansville, Indiana since 3 May
Sheriff Dave Wedding of Vanderburgh County said that Casey White and Vicky White were in Evansville since 3 May.
The fugitive duo had been on a run for 10 days when they were finally stopped by police on Monday.
Mr Wedding said: “It’s hard to believe they’ve been here that many days, but we’re lucky that we stumbled upon them.”
Casey White was captured by the police after a chase and a car crash.
The Alabama prison inmate, who faces charges of double murder and was serving a 75 year sentence – has been brought back to the jail.
Sheriff Rick Singleton of Lauderdale County, Alabama said that “he will be in a cell by himself. He will stay in handcuffs and shackles while he’s in that cell and if he wants to sue me for violating his civil rights, so be it. He’s not getting out of this jail again. I’ll assure you that. ”

“This plan, this escape was detailed. It was thorough, “said Mr Bryant. “The escape, in general, is exactly what Casey wants to do, is get out of prison, right? But it is well thought out and the planning is, again, nothing that is in Casey’s norm. “

Vicky White left the prison with fugitive lover before their jailbreak
US Marshal Marty Keely has provided one of the most detailed accounts to The Associated Press of how he sprung the Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force into action and began tracking down leads to find and capture fugitive Casey White and his jail guard lover Vicky White (no relation).
In the exclusive interview, Keely explained how clues about the pair’s relationship and plans to escape became more clear as he and investigators within the task force began to cull over seemingly minute details.
After conducting interviews with family members and coworkers and combing through financial records, the team discovered that the pair were involved in a “special relationship”.
Other tips that looked odd in the light of their brazen jailbreak that spiralled into a dramatic 11-day manhunt included Vicky White selling her home just weeks before the incident, and for well under market value at $ 95,000. She also sold her car, filed for retirement and purchased men’s clothes at a local Kohl’s store.
The most damning detail of all perhaps was that Vicky White and Casey White had actually successfully left the jail previously in what investigators believe was a dry run for the escape, two law enforcement officials told the AP.
