BREAKING: Corrections Officer and Escaped Inmate Could Have AR-15 & Shotgun, Vehicle Description Released

On Tuesday, the U.S. Marshals Service announced that escaped Alabama inmate, Casey Cole White, and the assistant director of corrections for northwestern Alabama’s Lauderdale County, Vicky White, could have an AR-15, handguns and a shotgun with them after they fled from prison last week.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, police issued a warrant for Vicky White’s arrest earlier this week, charging her with assisting in the escape of a convicted felon. Marshals are offering a $10,000 reward offered for information leading to her arrest. reports that the pair may be in a gold/copper 2007 Ford Edge with an Alabama license plate.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office confirmed through inmates that Vicky White and Casey had a “special relationship.”

Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton noted that before she fled, Vicky White had broken protocols — which were put in place several years ago when the same inmate tried an escape — requiring two sworn deputies to transport a prisoner.

“This leads us, again, to believe it was orchestrated because we had two vans of inmates leave just minutes before Director White had Casey White brought up front,” the sheriff said. “Both of those vans had two deputies on them. One have five inmates, the other had seven inmates.”

Casey White, who was serving a 75 year prison sentence for a multi-day, multi-state string of violent crimes in 2015, was also awaiting trial on capital murder charges.

Friday — the day of the escape — was supposed to be Vicky White’s last day of work, as she had recently put in for retirement, Singleton said.

Additionally, she had sold her house in early April and was living with her mother, Pat Davis. Davis told WAAY that her daughter never mentioned Casey White or even that she was retiring.

“You know, I never heard of him, never seen his picture, nothing. I didn’t know anything about him,” she said.

“She’s never done anything, I bet she’s never even had a speeding ticket. But I mean, she’s always been what I say a good person. And like I say, this is all a shock.”

Anyone with information about the pair should contact the USMS Communications Center at 1-800-336-0102. Anonymous tips can be submitted to the U.S. Marshals Tip App.
