Vicki White, an Alabama assistant director of corrections, has gone missing with Casey Cole White, an inmate suspected of capital murder.
According to reports, Alabama authorities are hunting for a prison guard and a murder suspect who were last seen leaving the jail on Friday for a three-minute trip to the county courts for an appointment that didn’t exist.
One staff, Assistant Director of Corrections Vicki White, and inmate Casey Colen White (not related) have been reported missing by the Lauderdale County Sheriff’s Office.
The automobile in which the two left the penal institution was discovered in the parking lot of a nearby shopping center. Investigators are looking for video that could provide more information about the incident.
Who Is Vicki White -Assistant Director Of Corrections Missing
Vicki White is the Lauderdale County Jail’s assistant director of corrections. According to accounts, she left the prison at 9:41 a.m. to accompany inmate Casey White to a mental health assessment in Florence, Ala., just outside Muscle Shoals.
Meanwhile, in a press conference on Friday, sheriff Rick Singleton confirmed that no such appointment had been made. He explained, “She was alone, which was against protocol.”
Mr. White, who was charged with two counts of capital murder for a murder-for-hire homicide in 2020, should have been accompanied by two deputies, according to the Sheriff. The walk to the courthouse, which was only three minutes distant, was included.
Officer White’s police car, which was used to transport Mr. White, was discovered about 11 a.m. on Friday in a local shopping mall, although it was unclear who spotted it or where it was spotted.
Did Vicki White Help In Casey Cole White Escaping?
It is still unknown whether Vicki White assisted Casey Cole White in escaping from prison. The two, on the other hand, went missing early Friday morning.
Vicki White told a guard she was going to the courthouse to drop off Casey White and seek medical attention since she wasn’t feeling well.
According to Sinheton’s statement, Casey White was never taken before the courts, and no mental examination was scheduled for Friday. Vicki White also failed to show up at the location where she had claimed she would seek medical assistance.
At about 11 a.m. Friday, Singleton said, someone on a lunch break noticed her car, a 2013 Ford Taurus police car, parked in the shopping center parking lot.
