Fugitive inmate captured after manhunt, ex-jail officer dead
An escaped inmate and the officer who helped break him free have been taken into custody in Indiana.
Authorities caught the pair near Evansville, Indiana after a car chase with U.S. Marshals. Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said in a press conference that marshals were pursuing a pickup driven by escaped inmate Casey White when the truck wrecked and he surrendered. Vicky White, a former jail official, shot herself and was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.
The Marshals Service said a warrant was issued on May 2 for Vicky White that charged her with permitting for facilitating escape in the first degree. Casey White was awaiting trial for capital murder when he escaped.
