More details expected after fugitive ex-corrections officer dies, inmate arrested

The corrections officer who escaped with an inmate from an Alabama prison and evaded authorities for over a week died Monday after the fugitives were taken into custody, officials said. Ex-corrections officer Vicky White, 56, and inmate Casey White, 38, were arrested after a police chase and subsequent car wreck in Evansville, Indiana, Lauderdale County, Alabama, Sheriff Rick Singleton said. Casey White was injured, and Vicky White later died at an Indiana hospital. The Vanderburgh County, Indiana, Coroner’s office didn’t release a cause of death, but police said Vicky White shot herself after U.S. Marshals stopped the Whites’ car after a short chase and suffered serious injuries. According to local reports, Indiana coroners will perform Vicky White’s autopsy Tuesday. Authorities also will provide more information at a Tuesday news conference. The Whites, who aren’t related, disappeared April 29 and authorities have since said the couple had a “jailhouse romance” and were planning their escape.
