Casey, Vicky White, wanted in Alabama prison break, caught in Indiana

EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Casey White and Vicky White, two people who have garnered national attention after staging a reported escape from an Alabama prison, were captured here Monday afternoon.

According to Vanderburgh County Sheriff Dave Wedding, US Marshals and sheriff’s deputies “intercepted” the Whites after a short law enforcement chase on US 41. US Marshals collided with the Whites’ vehicle in a grassy area near Baumgart Road.

Wedding said Vicky White shot herself after the chase and suffered serious injuries. Casey White, the passenger, was injured in the crash. Both have been taken to local hospitals.

Law enforcement will provide more information in a news conference Tuesday.

The Whites are not related. Casey White was in jail on an attempted murder charge. Vicky White is a former correctional officer who officials believe she aided in her escape from her.

Casey White also reportedly confessed to a 2015 killing.

The situation began last week, when the U.S. Marshals Service said investigators located an abandoned vehicle in Evansville that is believed to have been used by an escaped Alabama inmate and his alleged accomplice.
