Dramatic police footage captured the moment a nationwide manhunt ended in Indiana earlier this week after capital murder suspect Casey White was apprehended and the body of her prison guard lover Vicky White was pulled from a wrecked vehicle.
Ms White, the 56-year-old corrections officer, and White, an inmate serving a 75-year sentence for attempted murder, ended in a car chase and crash in Evansville. She died from what a coroner ruled was a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
White was taken into custody and told officers to help his “wife”, according to reports. The couple are said to have been romantically involved for around two years before escaping from prison more than 10 days ago and were unmarried.
A chilling 911 call released following the accident revealed Ms White had told the capital murder suspect: ‘Let’s get out and run’. She also appeared to blame White for wanting to stay “at the af****** motel” moments before their accident.
An investigation into the ordeal is still ongoing as police face growing questions about how the fugitives evaded capture for more than a week.
