Vicky White, 56, and Casey White, 38, have the same name but are not related. The first helped the second escape on April 29 from a prison in Alabama, and since then, the unlikely duo has been driving U.S. law enforcement insane.
Their operation seems to have been well thought out down to the smallest detail. And the surprise effect was total. Who would have thought to be on guard against Vicky White, who has never made waves in the prison administration in Florence, a small town in this state in the southern United States?
“She never did anything. I would bet she never even had a speeding ticket,” her infidel mother told local channel WAAY31.
The sheriff’s ‘model employee’, described by the county attorney as ‘most trusted person in jail’ who supervised prisoner transfers for the Lauderdale County Sheriff, is now one of the most wanted persons in the country.
When she shows up at Florence Prison on Friday morning to take Casey White away, under the false pretense of a psychological assessment in court, a vehicle is already waiting for her parked in the parking lot of a nearby mall that she shopped in. about the run.
However, in the remote surveillance footage of the prison, there is no indication that the tattooed giant and the prison official are in cahoots. She holds the door for him, but first gives him a look to get him in handcuffs, feet and hands aboard his police car. Then she gently closes the door and the vehicle drives away shortly after noon. 9.30.
Their disappearance will only be discovered several hours later, around 3:30 p.m.
The investigators who were set in motion in their pursuit seem distant. The fugitives were last seen Friday, the day of the escape, about 40 miles from prison in a rust-colored Ford SUV.
The hunt fascinates internet users in the region, who went back to the dealer where Vicky White had bought this car.
The seller was bombarded with criticism so much that on Wednesday the authorities had to make an update and assured that he had provided valuable assistance to the investigation and that “no one at the dealer (was) suspected of having helped” the two whites.
The items unfavorable to the official have accumulated for six days. We found out that she had recently sold her house at a discount and she had $ 95,000 in her pockets.
After 17 years of good and loyal service to the sheriff, she had also announced that she was retiring … and Friday was just her last day.
Without confirming her dismissal, the sheriff assured Wednesday that she was “no longer employed” by his services.
The story, perhaps about love, had begun in 2020.
Casey White, who was serving a 75-year sentence in state prison for, among other things, kidnapping, burglary and attempted murder, suddenly declares himself responsible for the murder of a woman five years earlier.
The confession is short-lived – he eventually denies guilt in the ongoing case – but triggers his transfer to Lauderdale County Jail, where he is prosecuted for the murder, and where he meets Vicky White for the first time.
He is sent back to his original prison following an escape plan, but the couple keeps in touch.
“He told me he was writing to someone, but I had no idea who it was,” his mother, Connie White, told the New York Post.
He returned to Florence prison in February this year to attend a nearby court hearing. For several months, the inmate then exploited what Sheriff Rick Singleton described as a “special relationship” with Vicky White.
“We have no evidence of any physical relationship,” the sheriff notes, but the other prisoners condemned “privileges,” “the rabbi” in the canteen, and the “things she did for him and not for the others.”
“Special treatment,” he sums up, for a man “extremely dangerous” and now on the run.
“He is very dangerous to everyone around him,” confirms a former girlfriend. She gave the following advice to Vicky White: “If you’re still alive, get the hell out of here. Run, run, run as fast as you can”.
