Alabama Inmate Disappears With Corrections Official

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering up to $10,000 for information leading to the capture of Casey White, an Alabama inmate charged with two counts of capital murder who disappeared on Friday, NPR reports. Also missing is Vicky White, the Lauderdale County assistant director of corrections, who had said she was transporting Casey White to the local courthouse for a mental health evaluation before the two disappeared.

Sheriff Rick Singleton said no court appearance was scheduled. The Whites are not related.

"Casey White is believed to be a serious threat to the corrections officer and the public," said U.S. Marshal Marty Keely. "Do not attempt to apprehend this fugitive." The vehicle the pair used to leave the detention center was found in a local shopping center parking lot. Casey White, 38, was charged with two counts of capital murder in the fatal stabbing of 59-year-old Connie Ridgeway. He had already been serving time for a "crime spree" in 2015 that included home invasion, carjacking and a police chase.
