Runaway prison guard Vicky White has reportedly succumbed to injuries caused by a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
For 11 days, Vicky White and Casey White led the authorities on a cross-state chase after the prison guard helped the confessed killer escape from Alabama jail.
On Monday afternoon, the pair was finally caught in Indiana after their Cadillac overturned.
At some point during the police chase, Vicky White shot herself in the head. While being rushed to the hospital, she succumbed to her self-inflicted injuries.
Vicky was facing ten years in prison after helping confessed killer Casey White escape from Alabama prison where she was working as a security guard.
After their car overturned, Casey White reportedly emerged and surrendered himself to the Marshals who crashed into the Cadillac to stop it.
Casey, who was already serving his 75-year sentence, has since reportedly been brought back to Lauderdale County, Alabama, where he will face additional charges related to his escape. He is also facing an outstanding murder charge over a 2015 killing.
Following Casey’s arrest, Lauderdale County Sheriff Rick Singleton thanked everyone involved in the manhunt for bringing “a dangerous man off the streets.”
“Most escapes – from a county jail especially – they’re not planned. They’re just sort of spontaneous. There are no resources available, no plan in place,” he said on Monday.
“This escape was obviously well planned and calculated. A lot of preparation went into this. They had plenty of resources, had cash. They had everything they needed to pull this off.”
The sheriff added: “We were starting from ground zero, and not only that, we started – they got a six-hour head start on us.
“We got a dangerous man off the streets today. He’s never gonna see the light of day again. That’s a good thing.”
Before the news of Vicky’s death, Singleton also said he hoped the disgraced security guard would survive so that she could explain her actions.
“I hope she survives this. She has some answers to give us,” Singleton added.
“You don’t know who you can trust. I had every bit of trust in Vicky White. She has been an exemplary employee. What in the world prompted her to pull off something like this, I don’t know. I don’t know if we’ll ever know.”
