Former corrections officer Vicky White died from self-inflicted injuries after she and fugitive prisoner Casey White were arrested on May 9 in Evansville, Indiana, the Vanderburg County Coroner said.
This video shows the large police response to the apprehension of the pair after police chased down their vehicle and collided off a highway north of the city.
Vanderburg County Sheriff Dave Wedding said the female driver had “very serious” injuries from a self-inflicted gunshot, while the other passenger had less serious injuries. They were both taken to hospital, Sheriff Wedding said.
Vicky White said she was taking the inmate for a mental health evaluation when she checked him out of jail on April 29. Authorities found out later that no such evaluation or court hearing was scheduled.
Vicky White has been charged with facilitating an escape, identity theft, and forgery, after the sheriff’s office said she used an alias to purchase the 2007 Ford Edge used in the escape, local media reported. Credit: Cory Bradley via Storyful
