How did Casey White escape from prison?
Specifically, Vicky was the prison’s assistant corrections director.
On April 29, 2022, she ordered the staff to prepare Casey for transport due to a supposed mental health evaluation scheduled for later that day.
The scheduling of the inmate’s mental health evaluation turned out to be non-existent and was found to be a ruse.

Vicky’s deception served as a distraction in order to give her and Casey time to escape.
Later in the day, law enforcement found her police car abandoned and the two became fugitives on the run.
Alabama sheriff Rick Singleton released a statement and revealed: “Being the boss and over the transport, she just informed the booking officer that she was going to carry him to the courthouse and drop him off, which was a flagrant violation of policy.”
“But I’m sure because it was her boss, the booking officer didn’t question it.”
When was Casey White captured?
Days later on Monday, May 9, police officials located Casey and Vicky in Evansville, Indiana.
The cops were able to find them due to a tip from an Indiana car wash manager who noticed their vehicle described by reports.
As authorities went after the two fugitives, they took the police on a brief car chase.
At some point during law enforcement’s pursuit, the fugitives’ vehicle ended up in an auto wreck.
Casey surrendered and Vicky was taken to the hospital for a reported self-inflicted gunshot wound – she died from her injuries.
Sheriff Singleton said of the criminal’s recapture: “What I am very thankful for tonight is that no one was hurt, no citizens were hurt, no law enforcement officers were hurt as a result of this escape.”
“We’ve already made arrangements for the Department of Corrections, he [Casey White] will be brought here [Alabama] for arraignment.”
Singleton shared with the press: “If it’s 2 o’clock in the morning, it doesn’t matter. The judge has agreed to come out.”
He added: “I had every bit of trust in Vicky White. She had been an exemplary employee.”
“And what in the world provoked her, or prompted her, to pull something like this, I don’t know. I don’t know if we’ll ever know.”
On May 10, 2022, a dashcam video was released by the Evansville Police Department showing the arrest of Casey White.
The video was shared by Senior National Correspondent Brian Entin on Twitter.
Casey can be heard telling cops to “please check my wife” as he was handcuffed by the local authorities.
The pair’s actions led the police on an 11-day manhunt before Casey was captured.
Entin also reports that Casey is set to arrive in Florence around 9.30pm.
