Missing AL Murder Suspect, Jail Staffer Had 'Special Relationship'

The moment Alabama capital murder suspect Casey White and jail supervisor Vicky White left the Lauderdale County Jail in what appears to be a well-planned escape was captured on video that was released by authorities. The pair, who Sheriff Rick Singleton said were in a “special relationship,” have been on the run for four days, reports Casey White, 38, was already serving a 75-year-sentence for unrelated convictions and Vicky White, 56, is charged with permitting/aiding an escape which is a felony crime. The video shows Vicky White at 9:29 a.m. Friday drive her sheriff’s cruiser to a door at the jail in Florence. She goes into the ooking area, and emerges moments later with a shackled Casey White. Vicky White walks with him to the car, opens the door and shuts it after he is in the back seat.

The patrol vehicle was spotted just eight minutes later at a shopping center. They have not been heard from since. The sheriff said Vicky White instructed another officer to prepare Casey White for transport that day, saying she was taking him to a court hearing and then going to a doctor’s appointment after she dropped him off. Sngleton said Casey White was lying in the backseat of the patrol vehicle to avoid detection until they arrived at the shopping center and changed vehicles. Authorities determined Casey White was not scheduled for a court hearing. Vicky White never showed up at her doctor’s office. U.S. Marshal Marty Keely said the two, who are not related, are believed to be armed with an AR-15 and a shotgun, in addition to Vicky White’s service weapon.
