United States: Arrest of an escapee and his guard after eleven days on the run

The run that held America in suspense is over. The police announced on Monday that they had arrested in the state of Indiana an “extremely dangerous” detainee, who escaped on April 29 thanks to the assistance of a prison officer, also arrested.

“Casey White is under arrest again,” Sheriff Rick Singleton told reporters. His alleged accomplice, prison officer Vicky White, was hospitalized. According to the authorities, she suffered from a serious self-inflicted gunshot wound. Their escape was cut short after a car chase with the police. The couple were chased while driving a Ford pickup, the sheriff said.

“Casey White was driving this vehicle. Vicky White was in the passenger seat. During the pursuit, the pickup had an accident. Casey White surrendered. Vicky White was transported to the hospital, ”reported the police chief.

Vicky White, 56, and Casey White, 38, have the same name but are not related. The improbable duo has aroused great interest, in particular because of the contrasts between them: she, a model little prison officer with an apparently orderly life; he, a 2.06 m multi-recidivist colossus imprisoned for murder.
