US Marshals Search Indiana for Alabama Escaped Inmate and Corrections Officer
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WAFF/Gray News) – U.S. Marshals and law enforcement officials in Evansville, Indiana, are working together on a new lead in the investigation of escaped inmate Casey White and former Vicky White Deputy Director of Corrections at Lauderdale County Jail.
According to WAFF, a US Marshals official said they are investigating a credible piece of information they believe links them to the Evansville area.
The latest credible out-of-state tip led investigators to an abandoned orange 2007 Ford Edge the pair were believed to be driving. He was found in Williamson County, Tennessee, and was flown back to Alabama on Monday.
The car was colored gold/copper and had damage to the left rear bumper. It also appears to have been spray painted in a few areas in an attempt to change the color.
The Williamson County Sheriff’s Office, where the car was found, reported that it appeared to have been abandoned a week ago and there was no sign the two were still in the area.
The new video shows Vicky White in a hotel the night before helping Casey White escape.
At a press conference, Singleton said Vicky White stayed at a hotel near where the getaway car was parked. The video shows Vicky White at the hotel the night before helping Casey White escape.
