Police still don’t know where escaped felon and accused murderer Casey White, or former corrections officer Vicky White are. The two are not related, despite having the same last name.
The manhunt continues.
Sheriff Rick Singleton announced Wednesday that Vicky White has been fired. She had planned to retire and had already filed paperwork to do so, but now that she’s been officially terminated, she will lose her state-funded pension contributions, Singleton said, according to Al.com.
Officials said that they are not sure where the two fugitives are.
There is a warrant issued for Vicky White. She is facing charges of permitting or facilitating escape in the first degree, CNN reported.
Officials believe she helped Casey White escape the Lauderdale County Detention Facility, where she was the assistant director of corrections. Officials do not believe that she was forced or coerced.
Vicky White had told co-workers that she was taking Casey White to the courthouse before she was going to seek medical attention. The pair never made it to the courthouse or a medical facility, CNN reported.
Video of the two of them leaving the jail has been released by officials.
The sheriff’s office believes the two were in a relationship.
“Investigators received information from inmates at the Lauderdale County Detention Center over the weekend that there was a special relationship between Director White and inmate Casey White,” the office said in a statement, according to CBS News. “That relationship has now been confirmed through our investigation by independent sources and means.”
U.S. Marshals Service said the pair was last seen Friday in Rogersville, Alabama, driving a gold or copper 2007 Ford Edge with Alabama plates.
The marshals have said there’s a $5,000 reward for information on Vicky White’s whereabouts. There’s a $10,000 reward out for Casey White’s capture, CBS News reported.
