Alabama Deputy Wanted Along With Murder Suspect Who Vanished From Alabama Jail

The hunt continues for an escaped capital murder suspect and a missing Alabama sheriff’s deputy. The inmate, Casey White, and deputy, Vicki White, disappeared from the Lauderdale County jail last Friday. 

Casey White, the 6-foot-9, 270-pound capital #murder suspect who vanished from an #Alabama jail on Friday, has a chilling, #criminal past. We’re also learning more about Vicki White, the trusted veteran deputy he was last seen with before they both disappeared.  

The 38-year-old White was serving a prison sentence for attempted murder and burglary, and was set to go on trial next month over the stabbing death of a 58-year-old woman, a charge in which he would face the death penalty if convicted.  

“We know she participated. Whether she did that willingly or if she was coerced, threatened somehow to participate in the case … not really sure. We know for sure she did participate,” Singleton said.

“This is not the Vicky White we know, by any stretch of the imagination,” the sheriff said.

The patrol vehicle the officer and the inmate were in when they left the detention center was found at a nearby shopping center parking lot, according to the sheriff’s office. Singleton said the inmate was handcuffed and shackled when he left the jail.

He said video showed the pair left the jail and went straight to that parking lot.

Here’s the latest on the search.

WARRANT ISSUED

Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton said a warrant has been issued for Vicki White, charging her with permitting or facilitating escape in the first degree in connection with capital murder suspect Casey White’s escape from jail.

Singleton said the pair left the jail in a patrol car and went straight to a nearby shopping center, where they abandoned the vehicle.

Authorities said Vicki White sold her home a month ago, and she was supposed to retire on Friday, the day she and Casey White disappeared.

Singleton said Southern Border Patrol agents had been alerted.

“Don’t take any chances with this guy. He’s dangerous,” the sheriff warned law enforcement and the public about Casey White on Monday.

$10,000 REWARD

The U.S. Marshals Service is offering up to $10,000 for information leading authorities to Casey White and Vicki White. If you know anything, call 1-800-336-0102.
